Since when does "ease of underrstanding/believability" become the basis of truth? (I know I'm oversimplifying your point, but I'm at work so I'm abeviating my thoughts for the sake of time, lol.) I apreciate you using odds as the cornerstone of your argument, but IMO the "odds" of something like the existence of a god cannot be measured. There's a pen on my desk... what are the odds that I purposely throw it across the room right now? It's imesurable because it's not mathmatical... it's emotional; based on will, not occurences or motions set forth. See what I'm getting at?

Wish I had time to eloborate, lol.
