Dirty said, “I never thought of it as a game!” He was not referring to secular laws, but life. Games, as a rule, like what odd’s make us to access the likelihood of something happening, is what I use Gaussian and Maxwell-Boltzmann for (Symmetric versus asymmetric bell curves). Like the Gaussian curve in high school, where A’s and F’s are less common to the side, and C’s more common in the middle. Does that mean the miracle on ice in 1980, Lake Placid, was something that’s not absorbed by the many non-miracles when looking at hockey for what the odd’s maker will access?
5,000 years ago, almost every tribe had it’s own version of a giant flood and a Noah’s Ark recovery, and human behavior was very despicable for the prelude. The Romans, with their brothels and terrible behavior at the Colloseum, witnessed many earthquakes, the eruption of Mount Versuvius, etc, followed by the mostly pious behavior of the Christians with far fewer natural disasters in western Europe for 1,000 years. During the nineteenth century, the age of intellectuals and Queen Victoria, moral, scruples, ethics and values, people would read books and talk to each other, throw out the bums in politics, and the weather was relatively good. Then, with progressivism and the muck-rakers taking over in the early twentieth century, there was the Galviston hurricane (1903), the San Francisco earthquake (1906), and many natural disasters since. My native California was known for moderate climate until after the 1989 departure of Ronald Reagan, then the entitlement crowd came there, with the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, flooding, and many other natural disasters.
Prophesy, life after death, creationism verus evolution, and miracles are the tenets of super-naturalism, God and religion. Steven Hawking, before he did, went from being an agnostic to an atheist exclaiming “there are things I cannot explain, but I am convinced there will eventually be an explanation”. However, does God, by definitions of the word, perfection, love, higher power, centralizing force, not exist by the vary pursuits of being those factors, as striving for perfection where that which is certainty, neglible margin of error, mean the burdern of responsibity to understand infiniteness and combining natural functions leads to precision? That which has an explanation is it’s own Orwellian “agnosticism is gnosticism” double-think where the individual chooses their own definition and intepretation, where words are never explicit. Numbers are usually irrational and nuances of gray as well, but can be precise to overcome the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principles, to satisfy Einstien’s state, “God did not roll dice when He created the universe”.
