Yes, they give some well-known facts about cosmology and biology and ham-fistedly splice absolute non-sequiturs and lies into it. To someone who doesn't know one of the respective fields, this might look very deep, but as soon as you know either the physics or the biology a bit, it becomes obvious instantly that it's just a silly pastiche.

Isn't it said of the devil himself that he mixes truth with lies to deceive us? Christians, have a close look at your apologists.

Exactly! I don't even have to look at any of their "math" to reject this argument. It is meaningless to assign a probability to something that has already happened. Improbable things happen all the time (e.g., people winning the lottery). Once it has happened, the probability that it happened is exactly 100%.

That is not an explanation. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I'm sure he meant "theoretical psychics, anemic theology and specious reasoning"

He has gone silent on the thread.

I don't know why xtians try to use science and logic to prove their beliefs. It really discredits them as soon as someone challenges it. They can't give an answer.

They could try to fail a bit more gracefully at it.
