It is easy to find religious apologists, and even a physicist,
positing "evidence" showing that there probably is a god. These
attempts usually use some sort of mathematical calculation, like a
variation of the Drake Equation or Baysian Analysis for example.
However, all of these attempts ignore the fact that there is no
evidence for any god. Therefore, the denominator in the calculations is
zero (0). Whenever a number is divided by zero, the results are "undefined." In other words, the results have no meaning.

Here is another way of looking at it: in order to truly calculate probability, one must be dealing with known facts. For example, if I have one die, with 6 sides from 1 to 6, and roll it, there is a 1 out of 6 (1/6) probability of rolling any of the numbers on the die (0.1666). Where are the known FACTS in dealing with the probability of a god?

__Bottom Line__: the religious cannot use probability calculations to pull the wool over gullible eyes.
