205. We know that what one observes in chemistry, biochemistry and physiology

 

exists, so obviously what we observe is possible. It's self-contradictory to claim what we know is real is too complex to be possible, and then claim that an undefined something much more complex must have made it.

We have zero evidence for any god and no precise definition for what this god is or what it does.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is arguing against specific claim about a god. You can claim that your definition for a god is different than what Neil deGrasse Tyson is arguing against. That doesn't invalidate Neil deGrasse Tyson argument.

You do seem to be using an intelligent design argument so Neil deGrasse Tyson still seems to apply.

Our Universe may be infinite and there is very likely much more beyond. In our Universe there are trillions of planets in the visible Universe. That's a lot of lottery tickets to produce a planet that can evolve intelligent life. Likely there are enumerable universes and perhaps other realms unknowable to us beyond our Universe. A lot is going to happen in such a large reality, obviously including life.
