Proving God statistically.

George Gallup, the famous statistician, said, “I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone—the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen is just a statistical monstrosity.”

Revelation 14:7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.

  1. Whether I was in my body or out of my body I know not. God knows it!

    George Frideric Handel

    This is insane. First off, it is yet again an example of Christian quote mining. Gallup never said this. It would be surprising if he did, given that he likely had good understanding of statistics and whoever wrote this false quote doesn’t. Here is a quick list of why this is stupid:

    1. Even if complexity could prove design by a deity, it certainly couldn’t prove which deity did it. It could have been Thor.

    2. To compare two probabilities, one must know them both. What is the probability of a magic man who lives outside time and is both onimiscient and omnipotent existing with out a creator and then opting to create the universe? No wat to tell, so no way to compare the two chances.

    Grow up and think before you post silly things.

    Turns out I was worng and I apologize for that. It now appears to me that Gallup may well have said that. It’s a shame the man is so very wrong.

    This is a good example of why fallacious appeal to authority is to be avoided.

    Everything else I said is accurate.
