Imagine time travel has been mastered.
A Blind person has been sent back to the moment just after the big bang, with a Rubik's Cube for company.
She is very dexterous. She makes one move per second. She has boundless energy.
This is an important question, for it goes to the nub of the argument about how evolution works. Darwin's theory and Darwinism (which dominates our scientific view of life in the Universe) rests on the idea of chance mutations.
Our blind person gets NO feedback on whether her moves are leading her closer of further away to a solution.
So - making one move a second how long would it take her to hit the right solution?
less than 7 hours?
30 million years?
more than 30 million years?
The answer to this thought experiment is remarkable. It is vastly more than 30 million years.
It was estimated by the UK's Astronomer Royal, Fred Hoyle, that it would take 67.5 times the estimated age of the universe to hit the solution by chance. This is a very long time indeed.
It would take 1.35 trillion years. That is the mathematical answer. It has not been refuted.
The complexity of the Rubik Cube is not very great. It is equivalent to one chain of amino acid in a cell.
But the humble single cell as 200,000 amino acids; and that is simply one part of the cell's complexity.
Does that mean that the theory of Evolution is bunk? No, it does not.
Here is why. If our Rubik Cube lady is given simple feedback of 'yes' and 'no' for each move she makes she will solve the puzzle in a matter of minutes.
As we saw here, the promise that passing electrical currents through a 'soup' of chemicals to produce amino acids capable of self-replication, has not yet happened (40+ years since we were told it would be accomplished 'soon').
As we saw recently, in the intriguing experiment with photons and DNA (see here) matter appears to be much more responsive than our current scientific models tend to allow for. It is as though there is an innate awareness within matter, It suggests the 'rules' of 'evolution' were present prior to the Big Bang.
Once that idea is accepted even as a working hypothesis, then many intractable problems with the Theory of Evolution begin to have a solution.
How long though, before these debates make it into the school text books that shape our consensus reality?
