The Fundies must be in a quandry over this. An Oxford University professor speaking in Melbourne said that probability calculus showed a probability of 97 percent that Christ was resurrected.

Professor Richard Swinburne. . . said that the conclusion was arrived at after a series of complex calculations, which began with the probability of God's existence as one in two, that is either God existed or did not, adding that it was also one in two that God became incarnate. Arguing that the evidence for God's existence was an argument for the resurrection, and any evidence against God's existence was an argument against the resurrection, he said that the chance of Christ's resurrection not being reported by the gospels had the probability of one in 10. These factors, all coming together, if the resurrection was not true, were one in 1000, he said.

Silly Scientist! Probability calculus isn't in the Bible, therefore it is only a theory, and incorrect. Only stuff in the Bible is true and correct. He wasted all that time for nothing.

You sure? There's some pretty weird stuff in Leviticus.

Well, I think that Jesus was really incarnate and resurrected...so based on if it really is true, it's probably not that hard to prove the truth (ie. the 97% prob). I think these days, scientists probably have a lot harder time going against the claims of the Bible.

NUMBERS! How could I forget Numbers? That would have made the piece perfect! Darn you for thinking of it first!
