We are attempting to determine how many events have ever taken place in the universe.To do so, we must first determine the size of the universe so that we can pack it withevent-accomplishing particles.So how big is the universe? Scientists have estimated it to be about 5,000,000,000 lightyears across. To give the evolutionists a little help, let's assume that it is a million timeswider, taller, and deeper. The new diameter would be 5*10^15, or 5 quatrillion lightyears. This will make our experimental universe 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 bigger thanthe real universe. Many events can occur in such a big place.
5,000,000,000,000,000 light years = 30 octillion miles, or
3*10^28 miles indiameter.
How Small Is a Proton?
Now that we have thought big, lets think small. The effective diameter of a proton isabout 2.4*10^-15 meters, or 2.4 femtometers. To help understand this tiny size, one inchis equal to about 10 trillion protons lined side to side.Remember, we are trying to figure how many events could ever happen. We need toknow how many particles exist so they could do stuff through the ages. That's what we'recalculating.We should use particles a good bit smaller than protons, so that the evolutionists willhave enough particles to do lots and lots of events. By volume, the real universe contains billions and billions of times more space than particles. Since we are attempting todetermine how many events have ever occurred in the universe, let us give theevolutionists the benefit of the doubt by completely filling our experimental universewith particles. This will give them billions of times more events to produce life.Protons are way too big. We are figuring the total amount of events that have ever taken place, and more particles can do more events. We should give the evolutionists lots andlots of particles so that life has a better chance of evolving. Therefore, we will be using particles having a diameter 1 trillion times smaller than protons. This will allow us to pack our experimental universe with (1 trillion)^3, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, more particles than would be possible with "large" protons.
How Many Particles Could Fit In Our Universe?
First, let us determine how many of our extra-small particles could be lined across thediameter of our extra-large universe.
