Quote# 54576

scientist actually calculated from facts that there is a 69.7564^256th power percent possibility that God exists. these were atheist scientists too. they were trying to prove that God does not exist. so if they come up with the opposite result for trying to disprove God, those that try to prove it will get better results.

the whole thing about faith is this, "Seeing is not believing, believing is seeing."
this means that we would not believe just because we can see, we believe because we cannot see. you cannot see light, wind, gravity, or a magnetic field. yet you can see the effects of them. this is the same with God. you do not need to see God to know that he is there, you merely need to see the effects of his presence.

Citation needed, and proof of these facts

Just by reading this, I know you are a liar. Do you want to know how I know?

@Headache: Ooh! Ooh! I do! *raisehand*

12/21/2008 2:44:06 AM


@ Headache, adrian w probably doens't, but I do. Not that I disagree with you, just curious.

I Googled 69.7564 and most of the one page of hits were phone numbers. Adrian is a bullshitter.

We're not talking about Zimbabwe inflation here.

Fancy that. I mean I've only taken a couple of stat/math classes, but I was soooo sure that percent probabilities had to be between 0.0-1.0, or 0%-100%

Hawker Hurricane

And 47.32% of all internet statistics are made up to win a arguement.

Was it the fact that he doesn't understand probability, or the fact that he doesn't understand scientific notation?

I've never bothered saying this before but:

there is a 69.7564^256th power percent possibility that God exists

Probability, which is the ratio of expected successes to attempts, can't exceed 1.0. You can't succeed 101 times in 100 attempts.

Science and math, you're doing them wrong.

1st: citation needed
2nd: Richard Dawkins is an atheist scientist and he found God to be highly improbable. Ever read the God delusion? Anyway, the God Delusion is an actual book, and if one were to read it, they would find the explanation for the statement I made about Dawkins' findings. This is obviously a concept that is beyond your understanding.

Show the effects of God and atheists will change their mind. And don't come up with the "The perfect order in the universe" bullshit.

A total lie followed by a boring cliche. It could only be FSTDT.

12/21/2008 3:41:23 AM


I don't need citation because I know this is wrong.

12/21/2008 3:52:26 AM


I particularly liked this one, "you cannot see light ..."

12/21/2008 3:52:53 AM

If you think about it, 0.697564 (69.7%) raised to the 256th power would be essentially 0.0000000000, so I guess he's right...

There's a 128.9% chance that you're a dumbass.

See if you can still get your money back for that scientific calculator.

"scientist actually calculated"

This must be bullshit.

"there is a 69.7564^256th power percent possibility that God exists."

That's over 9000. Percents stops at 100.

12/21/2008 4:20:43 AM


69.7564^256 is ~9.06816e471, taken then as a percentage would be...


Which is 906,816 followed by 464 zeros...

One Googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros.

So that would be, roughly, ...

about as much Bull Shit as the average Creationist spits out in their lifetime.

Mr. Creazil

Another triumph of biblical math. Go ahead, ask him what Pi is.
