Prov 16:33 The dice are cast into the lap, but every result is from the Lord.

With that being said, why do you suppose Creationists have such a bugaboo about chance? Most assume that if there is any element of chance involved that means that God is not in control, which is not scriptural, and truth be told, quite idiotic.

That's simply because the evos keep using chance as an argument as evidence against the existence of God. They aren't the ones who started ir then, if they believe the Bible.

So then, can we presume that since chance doesn't mean that God is not in control, that disorder and randomness are not evidences against God, like the evos like to put forth?

So all evidence, both order and complexity, and chance, are no evidence against God at all. There's no precedent in that case for undirected evolution or the possibility of any of the universe or life arising without an intelligent cause.

Chance in nature is certainly not an argument against God, it is tantamount to saying that God has no power over random events and the Bible says otherwise.

So if one believes in God and the Bible then chance in nature is certainly not the same as saying it doesn't turn out the way God intended.

Chance is used in nature all the time, when making reproductive cells we mix up our parents DNA in such a random fashion that distances between genes in pre sequencing days were calculated in the % chance that there would be a chromosome switching event (grandma's DNA for grandpa's DNA) between the two genes, called CentiMorgans.
