An Odds Rebuttal

Not an odd rebuttal - a clever rebuttal - but one that deals with the question of odds (link to rebuttal). The explanation is important: it shows the silliness of simply assuming that a large number of alternatives (for example, the large number of alternatives to the the truth that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the one true God) is an argument against the truth of a proposition.

The fact that there are 1,000 or 10,000 or 100,000 false religions is of no more significance than the infinite number of wrong answers to 2+2.

I wonder what the odds are that Caner would repeat variations of the same "misstatements" multiplied times over multiplied years and remain innocent of intentionally lying?

Though I'm no statistician, probability would seem quite low.

In Him,

P.S. - maybe it's just me, but when your blog loads the page leaps directly down to the Google street view map of the Islamic Center in Ohio. Weird...
