### Experimental Monotheism Study

EM is the religion where we initialise by believing there is 1.000000000 God and then run simulations to find the error bars on that number

### Re: Experimental Monotheism Study

When you write a number like 1.000000000 do you know what that implies at least to a bumpkin?

Nope, but I do not have enough memory to handle more digits.

### Re: Experimental Monotheism Study

Hope I can remember this correctly but when you say 1.000 000 000 you are implying that all those digits are correct which means you know the error is less than ± .000 000 000 05

### Re: Experimental Monotheism Study

That is correct but it does not apply here. It's just the initialisation. After a few iterations, the value might change

### Re: Experimental Monotheism Study

Nope, that was our sacred number. Exodus 8.2 +- 0.03 advises we use it.

Frogs were considered a plague. For instance the Cane Toad.

Not really, those frogs are considered an invasive species in Florida and Australia. They secrete a large amount of toxins and can kill a dog or any large predator that eats or licks them. They grow in Florida to be quite large and lay many eggs.

Reminds me of:

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
The knowledge of some things as a function of age is a delta function.
