The calculations of British mathematician Roger Penrose show that the probability of universe conducive to life occurring by chance is 1 in 10^10123.

Irrelevant to the discussion. The theory of evolution only addresses the development of life, not its creation.

Not to mention that what he actually said was that the know principles of physics are insufficient and worked on improving physics principles rather than giving up.

Also he did his work extra-solar planets were unknown and we think there are likely at least billions of planets,

But no matter how good the math work, without knowing what variables one is missing, an accurate probability estimate cannot be counted on.

And even when we talk about the development of life, the ODDS without intelligent input are still impossibly large.
