BUT DID GOD CHOOSE GEORGE BUSH TO BE PRESIDENT?....Does God exist? Bayesian analysis says the odds are 2:1 in favor!

But the bookies still aren't willing to take bets:

Graham Sharp, media relations director at William Hill, said there were technical problems with giving odds on the existence of God. "The problem is how you confirm the existence of God. With the Loch Ness monster we require confirmation from the Natural History Museum to pay out, but who are we going to ask about God? The church would definitely confirm his existence."

Mr Sharp said William Hill does take bets on the second coming, which currently stand at 1,000/1. For this confirmation is needed from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Yeah, it's true, it's a bit of a slow day today....
