This post is about a prophetic-mathematical proof of God.

It depends mainly on the work of the German scientist Dr. Werner Gitt, who was the now retired director of the PTB (Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt).

I didn‘t find a proper translation of his outstanding work on this on english websites, so I try to give you an idea of this impressive and easy to understand analogy.

Maybe this helps some readers to accept the bible as the infallible and true word of God.

Especially this may be an eye-opener to our unbelieving or atheistic friends and it was and is still an encouragement for us as believers to know about.

OK, let‘s start.

We know that the bible is written by more than 40 by God inspired individuals over a range of appr. 1600 yrs.

And the whole bible is full of yet fulfilled prophecies.

According to „Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible“ a bunch of

**3268 prophecies**have been fulfilled until today.

The question is:

What are the odds that these prophecies were fulfilled by chance?

First we must determine the probability that a single prophecy was fulfilled.

In order to simplify the whole math behind, we assume a (very high) probability of 0.5 (50%) for each single prophecy.

Of course some prophecies are very complex and the odds are far less than 0.5, but let‘s assume this unlikely high probability for now.

It will even take the wind out of the sails of the critics to assume a higher probability.

For all

**3268 prophecies**we can now calculate a probability of

**0.5 to the power of 3268**or approx.

**1.7 * 10 E-984**

This is a number with 984 leading zeros. Incredible, isn't it?

0.000000…<a total of 984 zeros>……..17

We will now try to comprehend this incredible small number with our limited brains.

Werner Gitt developed his so called ant-model for this.

Imagine an assumed anthill with black ants and only one red ant.

The question we ask is: what are the odds to pick the red ant from the anthill?

The anthill will increase in size in this (virtual) experiment.

(A typical ant is here assumed with a volume of 10 cubic millimeters)

1. Waterglass

1. Waterglass

We fill a glass of water with black ants and one red ant.

The waterglass can take about 20,000 ants plus one red ant.

Now we pick one single ant from that glass.

What is the probability to get exactly the one red ant?

Answer: 1 : 20,000 or 0.00005, way too high for our 3268 prophecies

**2. Bathtub**

Now we fill up a bathtub with ants.

The bathtub can take up to 36 millions of our ants.

What probability do we get now if we try to pick the red ant from the bathtub?

__Answer__: 1:36,000,000 approx.

**2.8 * 10 E-8**, still far too high for 3268 prophecies

(BTW: This probability equals a count of around

**25 prophecies**to be fulfilled by chance!)

Let‘s go one step further

Obviously we need to increase the number of ants dramatically.

Obviously we need to increase the number of ants dramatically.

**3. Portugal**

We cover the whole area of Portugal with a 5m thick layer of ants.

With an area of 92,000 square kilometers we now have an amount of 46 * 10 E18 ants.

What are the odds to grab exactly the one red ant now?

A physicist would regard a probability with 2 * 10 E-20 as „impossible“.

This probability equals only to a number of

Now we fill the whole earth with a 10m thick layer of ants.

Let‘s see if this is sufficient….

Our earth has a surface of 510 million square kilometers, with a layer of 10m this amounts to a number of 5 * 10 E23 ants.

__Answer__: The probabibility is now around**2 * 10 E-20**, still far away from 1.7 * 10 E-984A physicist would regard a probability with 2 * 10 E-20 as „impossible“.

This probability equals only to a number of

**65 prophecies**fulfilled by chance.**4. Earth**Now we fill the whole earth with a 10m thick layer of ants.

Let‘s see if this is sufficient….

Our earth has a surface of 510 million square kilometers, with a layer of 10m this amounts to a number of 5 * 10 E23 ants.

Enough?

__Answer__: If we manage to fly around with an airplane a few hours and then accidentally grab one ant, the odds to grab the red one are**2 * 10 E-24**which amounts to a count of**78 prophecies**fulfilled by chance.

**5. Universe**

Let‘s go a huge step now and fill the whole universe with ants.

The universe is assumed to have a diameter of 30,000 million lightyears.

If we further assume the universe to be a sphere then we have a volume of 1.2 * 10 E70 cubic km or 1.2 * 10 E88 cubic millimeters.

This means, we can fill up the universe with 1.2*10 E87 ants including our famous one red ant.

Are we done now?

This suggestion was made by a polish listener of the lecture of Werner Gitt.

Our last try resulted in an amount of 1.2 * 10 E87 ants. This will now be the number of our universes, all filled with ants….

If we do the calculation we end up with an amount of 1.44 * 10 E174 ants.

__Answer__: If we somehow manage to grab one ant somewhere in the universe, the odds to get the red one are**8.3 * 10 E-86**or**288 prophecies**. Probabilities of this kind are typically labeled as „physically impossible“.**6. So many universes as ants fit in one universe**This suggestion was made by a polish listener of the lecture of Werner Gitt.

Our last try resulted in an amount of 1.2 * 10 E87 ants. This will now be the number of our universes, all filled with ants….

If we do the calculation we end up with an amount of 1.44 * 10 E174 ants.

Is that finally enough?

__Answer__: The probability now is

**7 * 10 E-175**to grab exactly the one red ant, which equals to a number of

**578 prophecies**to be fulfilled by chance.

**So, what now….?**

We calculate the required number of universes to be filled with ants.

The probability

The required number of ants is the reciprocal value 1/

One universe can take up to 1.2 * 10 E87 ants, thus we need

The probability

*p*for 3268 prophecies is (as we calculated in the beginning) 1.7 E-984.The required number of ants is the reciprocal value 1/

*p*= 5.83 * 10 E983One universe can take up to 1.2 * 10 E87 ants, thus we need

**5 * 10 E896 universes all completely filled with ants**and somewhere in one of these universes we place the famous red ant.These numbers are simply mind-boggling and surely beyond every human imagination.

**Conclusions**

First some notes on the used simplifications:

1. We used a very simplified model with a very high assumed probability (0.5) for each prophecy

2. We equaled one verse with one prophecy

3. Some prophecies depend on other prophecies

1. We used a very simplified model with a very high assumed probability (0.5) for each prophecy

2. We equaled one verse with one prophecy

3. Some prophecies depend on other prophecies

With our assumed exceedingly high probability of 0.5 we surely overcompensated the simplifications, meaning our assumed model can be regarded as valid.

Even if we reduce the number of fulfilled prophecies to the half (1634), we still would need 6 * 10 E406 universes filled with ants.

**- It is definitely impossible for 3268 prophecies (or verses) to be fulfilled by chance.**

- We must therefor postulate an almighty God for all these prophecies to be fulfilled.

- If all these prophecies were fulfilled in the past, it is very likely that the outstanding prophecies will also be fulfilled in the future.

- The prophecies were written in the bible, thus only the God of the bible can be the author.

- If all verses with prophecies were proven to be true, then it can be assumed that all other verses are also true, meaning the whole bible must be true.- We must therefor postulate an almighty God for all these prophecies to be fulfilled.
