The 'Junkyard Tornado' is a well known fallacy. It's called 'Hoyle's Fallacy' ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkyard_tornado ). It has been hijacked by creationists and misapplied to evolutionary biology ( https://www.patheos.com/blogs/daylightatheism/essays/the-tornado-in-the-junkyard/ ). The most popular counterargument to it would be the 'Ultimate Boeing 747 gambit' ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_Boeing_747_gambit ). You might want to check out 'Lies, Damned Lies, Statistics, and Probability of Abiogenesis Calculations' by Ian Musgrave ( http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/abioprob/abioprob.html ), which goes into more detail. Hoyle's argument is basically the argument from improbability ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-vUSQMqyOo ). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
