Probability Is A Function Of Ignorance: About The Chances Of One Out Of Over Four Thousand Religions Being the True one
Ever heard the atheists say something like, "there are over 4 thousand religions on Earth, so the probability of yours being the right one is at most 1:4000"?
If you have, then the idea is to make you feel that the chances of yours being the right one and your God being the true God was close to nil. But unknown to them, by that statement alone they're ignorantly admitting that there's a true religion and a true God.
So for those who belong to the true religion and true God, the chances of their religion and God being the right one was not under probability, since they know the truth, and probability is only a function of ignorance of the truth. Hence since they know the truth, the chances of their religion and God being the truth, was not 1:4000 but 1:1 since it's not under probability but a certainty.
It's only ignorance of the truth that would make someone say, "there are probably five persons inside that room". Someone who knows the truth would say, "there are five persons in that room!"
It's only ignorance of the truth that would make someone have to search the whole rooms of a twenty-room house just for a car key. Why he's still busy ignorantly searching everywhere possible for the key, someone who knows the truth about the key would just go straight to where the key was in the big house and bring out the car key.
Therefore those who are ignorant of the truth shouldn't expect those who know the truth to also be using probabilities as they do, because probability is only a function of ignorance of the truth.
God bless Nigeria.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
