What Number Do We Use For Probability = 0?1 min read

I was reading Wm. Dembski’s discussion of nyolase, and why it is not an example of evolution, but of adaptation, or more specifically, “natural genetic engineering.”  In the comments of that post, there was a discussion of Dembski’s use of 10-150 as a “bound” for chance, i.e. if anything has a probability of less than one in 10150, it is statistically considered impossible to have happened by chance (correct me if I’m wrong).  This turns out to be what is called Dembski’s Universal Probability Bound.  Neato.
