So you are equivocating the accidental tapping of typewriter keys that mean nothing to a monkey...
to the deliberate creation in one short lifetime of some of the world’s greatest literature.
Only an engineer-type could make such a foolish equivocation.
A statistician, perhaps? I’m surprised Phillip’s Ghost. Did you read it all the way through?
Its great to see you up early but you might not be a morning person?
Uh, no, I don't think that was the premise of the post at all.
I'm sure you've heard the claim that the chances of life occurring without intelligent intervention (i.e. God) is less than (or the same as depending on who is making the statement) some number of monkeys typing the complete works of Shakespear.
Whether the author agrees with that or not, I believe he is just investigating the statistical probability of a monkey (or monkeys) being able to do so.
