Dwight Nelson - The Anniversary of Charles Darwin and God

On the anniversary of Charles Darwin theory of Evolution, Dr Dwight Nelson, Senior Pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church at Andrews University in the United States presented a sermon titled. The Anniversary of Charles Darwin and God. In the sermon he gives certain facts from the world of science that show that the probability of evolution having caused the world to come into being is unimaginable. 

In one instance the following statement is quoted in the sermon -
Anatomic Numbers
The number of ways a 206-part human skeleton can be assembled is 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 . . . x 206 = 10 to the power 388  (1 with 388 zeroes following it).

ƒJerry Bergman: If you could complete one new random trial arrangement of these 206 bones every second “for every single second available in all of the estimated evolutionary view of astronomic time (about 10 to 20 billion years), using the most conservative estimate . . . . the chances that the correct general position will be obtained by random is less than once in 10 billion years.” “For all practical purposes a zero  possibility exists that the correct general position of only 206 parts could be obtained simultaneously by chance—and the average human has about 75 trillion cells! . . . This illustration indicates that the argument commonly used by evolutionists—‘given enough time, anything is possible’—is wanting.”  (In Six Days, ed John Ashton, p 26, 27)
Psalm 139:13, 14—“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
