of One of my illustrations of a low probability event is a year's worth of duplicate bridge hands at a typical club. Such a compilation presents an event that is far less probable than picking a particular single electron out of all of them. MM 1.1 #0357 Can I blame all of my spelling on line noise?

It certainly does NOT clear the men involved, whether they were popes in a council chamber or paupers in a mob. No, that's pretty much plain history. Most of the burnings were in Spain and were for heresy, not witchcraft. And the heresy was a trumped up charge against Christians of Jewish descent that the Spanish government wanted gone.

In my experience, people who indulge in bouts of silly, gratuitous abuse for the sake of reading their own bad prose usuall do so, not to seek answers, but to prop up an ego that is at once the object of their faith and of their doubts...

Around here, the power goes out when there is a lightning strike in the midst of a great electrical storm. It is a little hard to predict the exact instant though. Say what?

So, do you believe what Don said just above? <g> Ed

Global Customs
You have real problems and you have my sympathy. I'm sure Don is thrilled that you came to his defense, or were you merely attacking me? Whatever. It was sweet. Now here is a great example for what I mean by psuedo-intellectual. Look at the stuff you and Don CHOOSE to discuss. I don't even want to repeat it, so you will have to look above. By the way, you didn't say whether you believed Don or not, but knowing

An Answer to your Questio
And you know this how? (uh-uh, assumed for the sake of discussion) The issue was Don's stating that given certain attributes, God should have done something about that attrocity. My question was in the same context, but Don decided that rather than explain his context, he was going to play the intellectual make that the wounded intellectual who if only he were represented correctly by the rabble was just chomping at the bit (oops, some of my rabbleness
