113. True
And to that challenge, neither of us can win. It is not impossible that God created the universe, or a giant spaghetti-monster, if you will, nor is it impossible that we are the results of random flukes with no design/intent/will.

As to probability, the scientist will always win the debate, as science is mathematically based, and can be calculated with probability (even though much of what we know today about science will possibly be likely be proven wrong within 100 years and we'll have a different set of scientific standards). Belief cannot. Therefore, I will concede to you that I can not in any probability show you that God created the universe beyond my beliefs, traditions, and text. Whereas, you can show with some degree of probability that the universe was created in one way or another. I would argue that it was God who decided what way or the other and did it, but cannot win a debate about it.
