This was the line of reasoning I was responding to in the originial post:

I take it that Dawkins' argument for the improbability of God is rather simple...

1. God himself would have to be more complex than the highly complex universe.
2. What is complex is improbable, and is improbable to the degree it is complex.
3. God is highly improbable. That is, he almost certainly does not exist.

Assuming this is a correct summation of Dawkins' argument: God's complexity>Universe complexity, & complexity=rare, then it should follow that God is rare or improbable. I just upended his argument that the progenitor of highly complex phenomena must be even more complex, it doesn't.
