Calamity of calamities.
The greatest calamity that will befall mankind when the End-Times strike is that all those who so reverently looked forward to the End-Times will no longer have the End-Times to look forward to.

Re: Maybe You Want To Share The Wealth
Phat, you need to correct/update your numbers. this wikipedia article, based on Credit Suisse (2021) data shows world total net wealth as $418 trillion(USD). If I weren't too lazy to figure out how to post images from that article, I would do so. And I'd also post images of an apple and an orange for your edification - after giving a careful explanation of the difference between earnings (income) and wealth you go on to compare the world wealth per person to income!
Most interesting in this article (to me) is that the US owns 30% of the world's wealth at $126 Trillion(USD) while Russia owns all of 0.73% at $3 Trillion(USD), and are ranked 20th. (China owns 18% with $75 Trillion and comes in 2nd after the US.) Many military experts will tell you that modern wars are not won, they are bought. If this is true, Russia would not stand a chance against the US if we were to get serious about any conflict.

Re: JarThink
In a 1947 cartoon Bugs Bunny predicts that Porky Pig's shotgun will backfire, singeing PP's hair. In 1949 cartoon, Porky Pig's shotgun backfires, singeing PP's hair. Prophecy fulfilled! Warner Bros. studio's inerrancy proved! (And now we know that Elmer Fudd is the true AntiChrist!)

Re: JarThink
I very strongly suspect that he just pulled a number out of his ass
Sorry, dwise1. Just because you fail to see candle2's mathematics professor's model doesn't mean he doesn't have one. And his model should be quite obvious: it is based on the most important constant in all of physics - the fine structure constant. This constant, equal to e^2/hc which is equal to 1/137 (where e, h, c are the charge of the electron, Planck's constant, and the speed of light, respectively, and is usually denoted by the Greek letter alpha). Alpha^8 = 1/1.24x10^17. What this model proves is that the Bible authors were truly divinely inspired because they could not possibly have known about quantum electrodynamics (QED) when they wrote their prophecies. Since the value of alpha determines the strength of electron interactions, and thus the stability of all chemicals (including whatever comes out of that mathematicians ass), these prophesies also attest to the Devine creation of everything in the universe. Candle2's mathematics friend will go down in history as the greatest theologian humanity has ever produced.
And please don't get me started on the significance of the electron's gyromagnetic ratio to the second coming of Christ.

Re: JarThink
I seem to recall that's called a joint probability, but it's been four decades so I don't quite remember the terminology.
It's been almost six decades since I studied statistics, but I remember everything I learned because I have perfect recall. In fact, I can't think of a single thing that I've forgotten.
But, the key thing that you are leaving out of your analysis is conditional probability for which you have to apply Bayesian statistics. So, in the case you consider of trying to roll a 4 with a six sided die, the probability of getting a 4 is indeed 1/6 ~ 0.16667 if you are an atheist. However, if you are a devout Christian, like candle2, and you add the condition of sincere prayer you can raise the probability to as high as 0.7346. The power of prayer has a multiplicative factor of 1 to 46378 (depending on which god you pray to). If you are an Ancient Greek and pray to the demigoddess Diana, you can only raise the odds to 0.1669 since Diana, being a demigoddess, has limited powers. However, if you are an Ancient Greek, then your are dead and those odds of rolling preferred numbers on dice is the least of your worries. These are all true facts. You can look them up. The real question here is why are you letting some ignorant schmuck take up any of your time! (I'm referring to candle2, not myself.)

Re: JarThink
This is also one of the reasons why mixing gods with science doesn't work. What science discovers must hold true regardless of one's gods. If you mix certain chemicals together under a certain set of conditions, then the resultant reaction(s) must not depend on which god you offered which particular prayer
Then how do you explain the well documented transmogrification of wheat/wine to flesh/blood during the Eucharist?
