Douglas Adams. "The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't." [Quotes of the Day]

So God's Really in the Details?. Last month, Richard Swinburne, a professor of philosophy at Oxford University, invoked probability theory to defend the belief that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. By Emily Eakin. [New York Times: Business]

About a year ago I was reading both C.S Lewis' Miracles, and Elmer Gantry at the same time (how to induce bipolar disorder.) One of the points that Lewis made was that if God was indeed omnipotent, any question as to what he could have done were moot, since he made the rules, and could operate in any way he saw fit. Since we were not privy to all the rules, and only had a limited understanding of how things worked.

Regardless, it is interesting to see a probability formula being used in this manner.

(I hate the way Google news formats in a table)
Currently they are at a $299.99 price point with the X Box, but they don't have the market penetration to make the system profitable at that cost, as they plan on making the loss on the systems with their software sales. The PS2 is ebating them 10-1 in terms of market adoption, so things are looking pretty grim for the X-Box. Time will tell.
