I apologize. The stuff that related to our previous discussion were the various chance events that allowed for life on earth. http://www.reasons.org/resources/apo...608.shtml?mainHere</a> is one of the major points, without giving probabilities. It gives a linguistic explanation of some critical parameters for life to exist (some of it is inevitably linked to life as we know it, though).

http://www.reasons.org/resources/apo...505.shtml?mainHere</a> is a link to the probabilities of various parameters of Earth's location/set up that point at creation rather than chance occurrance.

http://www.reasons.org/resources/apo...n_the_universeHere</a> is the subtopic these two come from, with even more data. I've picked two of the highly specific listings, but there are even more.

Don't get me wrong here; I have no desire to get back into the argument. I just finally found a link that backed up one of my points. It's "creation evidence" aimed at a more scientific audience (with a lot of the arguments being directed through astrophysics), and I was wondering what you thought of it.
