They seem to think that evolution is about the origin of life. Perhaps the disclaimer should have a disclaimer: the following disclaimer concerns science the author was ignorant of.

Creationists are ignorant about a lot of things.

Even if they do confuse evolution with the origin of life, creation is not an explanation for that either. "GOD DID IT" does not explain anything. Multiple scientific hypotheses for the abiogenesis of life have been and are being developed, and even the most improbable one is more reasonable than anything the creationists can assert.

Just a thought:

For billions of years since the outset of time
Every single one of your ancestors has survived
Every single person on your mum and dad's side
Successfully looked after and passed on to you life.
What are the chances of that, like?

"What are the chances of that, like?"
The probabillity = 1 exactly.
Because it happened.


Incidentally, re "Every single one of your ancestors has survived".
No, the great bulk of them are dead. I currently have two living ancestors; my parents are still alive. Alsmost every single one of my ancestors hasn't survived, however all of them lived long enough to have children. Many people do.

They survived long enough to maintain the BC line.
All that effort. . . . . . They could have produced Michael Jackson . . . someone did.
btw, your calculation of the probability  = 1 is questionable. There were still 4 zillion ways in which you might not have been produced. I think we're down to definition here.
