Which one of these four collections of letters shows design?

No cheating by looking it up!

4. Four score and seven years ago, our forefathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty

If you said #4, you would be WRONG. NONE of them show design of any kind. Remember, if you have an infinite number of monkeys bashing away at an infinite number of typewriters for an infinite amount of time, they will eventually produce - without any sort of design - not only the Gettysburg Address, but also the Bible, the complete works of Shakespeare, your Aunt Fanny's recipe for pineapple upsidedown cake and the entire nucleotide sequences for the DNA of every living thing on the Earth. And you know what else? Even the gibberish the monkeys produce is no different from those things since the monkeys have the same chance of typing gibberish as they do words, sentences, paragraphs, etc. Remember, when it comes to chance, gibberish which makes no sense is exactly the same as sentences that you can read and understand. After all, the sequence of "kioqenpqoiqwlecqwlcqpclqwenbpoybghoerrthwa" works just as well as "four score and seven years ago."
