Thank you for doing this. If this contest goes well, could you sponsor a second one to predict the Second Coming? Jesus said he was coming back right away. He's already long overdue. I'm hoping to get a new car out of the Rapture when all the believers are swept up into heaven from whereever they happen to be and the rest of us are "Left Behind." If you can find out for me when it is expected to occur, I can plot my strategy to find some believers where I live with really nice cars and be ready to drive off in their "old" vehicle after they have been lifted right out of the driver seat. Anything you can do to assist will be greatly appreciated. Of course you can have a ride in my new set of wheels!
p.s. Am writing a book titled "How to Cure Religion (Without Any Adverse Side Effects)." Please forward any suggestions for inclusion. Thanks
thanx friend
Great challenge!
I have learned about your group through these posts and I am very interested! However, I am a bit worried about this astrology challenge! what are the odds that someone will get these answers right just by chance? I hope you are not taking a big risk...I would hate for the Science and Rationalists to close down!
Given the specific nature of the questions, the probability approaches zero. You have significantly more chance of being run over by a bus tomorrow. Don't worry, on either count!
I guess I have a better chance of winning the lottery? ;)
Yes. But you have more chance of being run over by that bus tomorrow :-)
Don't jinx me you! :)
And while we wait for Biplab to reply, you can rest assured that I did not get run over by any bus yesterday. :)
