I really think this may be futile but lets try anyways.

We failed to consider one more thing that helps randomness. So what helps randomness that we know of so far?

1. Time

2. Space

3. Exponential build up

4. Decreased options

but there is one more  . . . . .

5. Speed.

What if we picture a planet that previously was constantly impacted . . . .very QUICKLY by lots of small space rocks inside a giant cloud of space rocks and dust moving really FAST. We are talking really really fast. I think if you had enough of them moving fast enough you could form the basic proteins much faster . . . but this only presumes that they could form in the first place of course. Speeding it up would certainly help a great deal here. I mean at first we were considering proteins form miles apart. But what if we were getting like 100 or 1000 combinations per second everywhere? Now we might have many more combinations. We would expect the proteins to form in more spots due to increased speed. Instead of just one proper protein per mile we would get  . . . lets multiply 1 by 1000. Now we would get up to 1000 proper proteins per mile. That could be like 10 by 10. So now imagine finding one every 1/10 of a mile. And 5280 divided by 10 is . .. .528 feet. So then we would, if they could form, find one every 528 feet. But this is just in one second. With such speed eventually in moments the whole pool would be covered in them because you would have 1000 combinations happening per second. Really though?  Because we would be getting bad combinations too. Right? With a single protein being as much as 10,000 links long there are a lot of combinations to go through before you get the right one. So its still a fat chance that the right one will form in a spot. Would speed really help us here? Ok only four acids . . . rethink . . . that is 4 to the power of 10,000 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titin) actually which is 1.048576e+6.  That would be 104,8576,000,000  or about 104 billion combinations. Wow . . . that is the total number of combinations for 10,000 acid links I think. And we know that we get up to 12,000 trillion spots in an acid pool 1 mile wide and half a mile deep. Surely for every 104 billion we would find a proper combination. If you can imagine that we basically could have just the right protein for every block. You know how long it takes to walk past one block of houses. That is how far apart just the right proteins would be. The hard fact is that since good combinations would be both added and canceled we would always have this same amount and spread no matter how fast we are going . . .thought it was futile . . .
