Its far more likely than the ideas put forth in any religious book. Precisely because it can happen, where other claims are so preposterous, I feel its likely it may have.
The idea that a god of any bible would go through the contortions of a big bang just so 13.7 billion years later humans could evolve on a speck of nothing is mind bottling. I can't understand for the life of me how people fail to see the absolute conceit of such a notion. It truly is amazing.
And yet we're fascinated with stem cell research.
13.7 billion years might be 2 days to another life form.
