The Inevitability of Life

Creationists (including advocates of intelligent design) argue that the creation of life is improbable to justify the need for a creator which exists outside of the realm of science. As we have no witnesses of something which happened so long ago, the details of the development of life are not yet known. The Panda’s Thumb looks at some articles which argue that life might be inevitable on thermodynamic grounds. While this argument isn’t entirely convincing (and is not necessary to consider creationism a weak hypothesis), it does present an interesting idea.
