Fine, probabilities are good enough for me. If solving the partial
differential God equation told me that there was a 40% chance that God
would kill all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, and a 35% chance He
would create a plague of locusts, and a 25% chance He would part the Red
Sea and one of those things actually happened then I would become a theist,
provided of course that future solutions of the God Equation produced a
similar pattern of successful predictions.

Yes that's what I thought, you are fine with words meaning whatever you
want them to mean whenever you want them to mean it. And that makes
communication rather difficult.
