The “Wishful Thinking” Principle

Post Under Construction

This post will expand upon the “lake freezing over” example about the fact that even if the lake could freeze over, it would be a transient event and not even noticed.  The point is that the idea that if “magical” events were theoretically possible, they still wouldn’t come into existence for something like life because many such events would be needed, and the time will destroy any miracle because of the 2nd law which will occur at rates many, many orders of magnitude faster.  It would be like “one step forward, a trillion steps backward.  Bottom line conclusion: even if the logical constraints did not exist, life could never start by natural causes.
