Just 33 minor alterations to a narrative
...that's all it would take for each person currently alive on Earth to be able to tell the same basic story in their own unique way Smile

Assuming the narrative has been changed one time in each of 33 different places, it could then be re-told in 2^33 = 8,589,934,592 unique ways, depending on which alterations you wanted to include.
That's also a 8,589,934,591:1 chance of being wrong if you're making a series of faith-based (true or false) claims and you're going for total inerrancy.

Math is fun Cool

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Well that proves the bible is a miracle since it is perfect.

Or is it the Quran? Consider

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac
