What are the statistical odds that an ancient prophecy could just ‘get lucky’ and have its prophecy fulfilled? The odds dramatically increase when an ancient prophecy involves more details. Note the qualifications of Professor Peter Stoner. Then note his statistical analysis of how likely it would be for an Old Testament biblical prophecy with 16 or more specific details to randomly be fulfilled:
For those unacquainted with religions, it is often thought by them that all religions are basically the same. After all, every religion offers peace of mind, moral teaching, a connection with the divine, and a means for prayer, ritual, and worship, leading to meaning, fulfilment, and happiness.
To the unacquainted, religion sounds like one of life’s optional extras. It is particularly suited to those who are not scientific, easily intellectually satisfied with mystical answers, and probably already familiar with religion due to their upbringing.
Some people feel that acceptance of God is entirely a matter of faith. But the Scriptures actually claim that it is the truth which is the basis for this faith (Rom. 10:17). Truth is only truth if it is objective truth, that is, it is true for everyone regardless of time or circumstances. Thus, God is either true (and there can be objective proofs to support this), or He is not true and only subjective ‘truth’ can be offered for ‘proof’.
