From the article:
“The probability of a random event occurring can be displayed on a line and is assigned a value ranging between 0 and 1 like so 0______1/2______1. At the left side, we have 0 which is to say the random event is impossible and as such, will never take place.”
My thoughts: The tabletop of zero probability
So it is said that zero is not in the random space, meaning it will never occur. But rather consider that it does occur, and occurs all the time. The flat, stable table top represents the surface of zero probability, without which random events do not occur at all. Rolled dice bounce on the surface of zero probability to produce random results.
You know I don’t believe in spontaneous generation, nor do I believe that random mutations push macroevolution along, but just for the sake of discussion, how would a zero probability, non-random subspace affect your paradigm?
In speaking of the spontaneous generation of life, what was it that had to exist first to allow the randomness to begin existing next? What was that subspace of zero probability and zero randomness?
If mutations are random, what are they “bouncing off of” to produce randomness? There must exist a plane, a dimension, a subspace that is inexorably non-random in order for random to occur
It must be an unconditional, nonnegotiable subspace. So in a very real sense, the existence of that zero non-random subspace is actually directing randomness.
If random is occurring, then non-random is pre-occurring. That which is pre-occurring is directing that which is occurring.
If random is occurring, it is being directed by a non-random subspace.
If random is occurring, it has direction.
