That seems like a good argument. Except the universe and life has evolved over billions of years and there are billions of stars and planets in the universe. So seen in that context, life as we know it becomes more probable.
What we know hasnt happended for certain is the Bible/Quran proposition of spontaneous creation in 6 days 6000 years ago. This has been proved false, and only in the last 200 years have we begun to understand better out true origins.
If you think the Holy Bible says the universe was created in six days, than you don't understand what the Holy Bible is saying.

The paradox is about the unlikely probability of there being billions of self-conscious brains on this planet. There is a greater probability of there being one self-conscious brain, being. We can call this one self-conscious brain, being, the intelligent designer or maybe even God!

Sounds like wishful thinking on your part. Got any peer reviewed evidence for your claim?

Speaking of Paradox...

Today’s scholars can only use the known, that is historical reigning Roman Emperors as a reference in determining dates.

So, since the Bible clearly and unambiguously claims that Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the King, then he, Jesus, had to have been born no later than 4 B.C.

What a delicious irony!

Jesus could only have been born a minimum of four years before the birth of Jesus. After you stop laughing though, consider the import of this paradox.

Yes and the Church must vet candidates to the priesthood and keep those with deviant sexual behavior, such as homosexuality, out.
You should know they haven't done this at all!

They don't vet...they forget.

Cardinal Law of Boston is hiding in the Vatican now he sheltered many many pedophile priests

Father Geghan was one the few that was sent to prison he didn't last very long.

The warden Complained he could not protect him

How did he die you might ask

He was beaten to death by another true believer

Praise the Lord

Whoever made up the dating for Jesus' birth was pretty good cosidering the time in which he made it and the historical information available at the time.

We're not sure why you lie to use about your god. It might have something to do with your mental illness of faith that requires you to lie about facts and reality.

No evidence jesus was a real person. Another attempt at trying to lie to people about your cult in order to spread it.

You appear to be the one crying. I just give the facts, take them or leave them. You can just walk away. No one is keeping you here.

You don't even understand the Boltzmann Brain Paradox, so you cannot really make an assessment of my post.

Agreed. Alternatively if there was a God he could impact knowledge of his wonderfulness into everyone's minds simultaneously. This would do without the need for "prophets", holy men, and wackos having to preach by word of mouth. Which is a very poor method of communicating his "word". This would also bypass the confusing and contradictory array of competing belief systems. This imaginary deity could then if it wished put us to test for real, as we would have a clear and informed choice to chose from.
That would be even better-- and certainly the only JUST thing such a deity could do.

Free will is unaffected too-- a person can hear the god-instilled message, and then choose to follow it, or ignore it as he or she sees fit.

Perfect.

Neatly side-stepping all the pedopriests too!

The free gift is that if you chose to love God then you will live forever with Him;
Is it REALLY free?

Let's examine it closely:

If you choose to ACCEPT this... "gift"? Then what happens? Oh! You are now a slave to Jesus for all time, bowing to Jesus' massive ego, never being permitted to have an original thought of your own.

Or?

You get infinite torture forever and ever and ever.

Let's look at that again: Eternal Slavery, or Eternal Torture.

Wow.

That's hardly a GIFT, now IS it?

More in the nature of EXTORTION.

Yes-- it means something alright.

The biggest something is this: there are no gods behind any.

What god would permit such fractionating of his message like that?

(is that a word? Fractionating? Meaning to fracture into ... 41,000 pieces... LOL )
