1. This would be better posted at talk.origins.

2. Your model of evolution is incorrect. Please show us how your
model includes the effects of Natural Selection. Since evolution
includes Natural Selection, then any model that does not include
Natural Selection is not a correct model of evolution and hence the
numbers arising from that model are irrelevant to evolution.

3. I have calculated the odds of the Judaeo-Christian God existing as
1 in 30 ^ 3628800. Are you convinced?
