The problem is that we have no way of testing that explanation at the moment, so we keep it on the shelf labeled, Very Fascinating Speculation. A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing-747, dismembered and in disarray. What is the chance that after its passage a fully assembled 747, ready to fly, will be found standing there?
There is a problem with these scenarios, though, that is very misleading.
A body of calm air in our atmosphere contains all the molecules necessary to produce a tornado with enough force to destroy parts of a city. Suppose we could do that probability calculation. Looking at the tornado example, the problem is obvious. Laid out this way, you can see that #2 is the first part of a straw man fallacy, where random chance is suggested as the only way that tornadoes could form without alien intervention. In some cases the ignorance comes from simply not knowing the actual explanation, and in other cases it comes from the fact that we have no other explanation as of yet. Tornadoes cannot form by random chance.
We have no other explanation for tornadoes. Therefore, tornadoes are created by sorcerers. Organic life requires 4000 enzymes. It is impossible for 4000 enzymes to form by random chance.
Therefore, life on earth was seeded by aliens. No scientist expects that enzymes, proteins, and amino acids formed by random chance.
And that those mechanisms became as self-replicating as the ones we see all around us today in the vast and rich diversity of life on earth. I do want to acknowledge that Sir Fred Hoyle was a preeminent scientist who made valuable contributions to astrophysics and cosmology. We do have to also admit that the question of the origin of life is one of the most fascinating questions facing us scientifically, emotionally, philosophically, and theologically. The processes that may have brought about the origin of life are no different in that respect than simple processes like forces accelerating masses.

For this conspiracy, each of the companies was fined 5,000. Now this is old school. Now that is what I call an entertainment center. Mid century tv and bar cabinet. Monkey bars – I remember climbing these on the playgrounds at school.
Stacks of Pacific Electric Redcars await scrapping in Los Angeles circa 1956
Los Angeles’ Pacific Electric Red Cars – Framework – Photos and Video – Visual Storytelling from the Los Angeles Times
Pacific Electric Railway streetcars stacked at a junkyard on Terminal Island, March 1956.
The Pacific Electric Railway (reporting mark PE), also known as the Red Car system, was a mass transit system in Southern California using streetcars, light rail, and buses.The largest electric railway in the world at its greatest extent, around 1925, the system interconnected cities in Los Angeles County and Orange County, as well as in San Bernardino County and Riverside County.
