<Format>:

[player]-[player] [result] [# of MOVES]

==4 Different Scoring Methods==

Standard Moves Ranker (1st place-Over[3pts], 1st place-Under [7pts], Exact [10pts])

Bonus Ranker (3rd place-Over[1pts],2nd place-Over[2pts],3rd place-Under [5pts], 2nd place-Under [6pts]

Standard Moves/Bonus Ranker [Add all to together]

1st place Ranker [how many 1st place you have in Standard Moves Ranker]

For example:

<Note: Participants 3, 4, and 5 are predicated on nobody scoring an exact as Participant 2 did. If someone hits an exact, the closest score under and over will score the points for second place.>

Actual Game: [player]-[player] 0-1 45

Participant 1: [player]-[player] 1/2 45
Participant 2: [player]-[player] 0-1 45
Participant 3: [player]-[player] 0-1 44
Participant 4: [player]-[player] 0-1 43
Participant 5: [player]-[player] 0-1 46

Participant 1: No points even though 45 is correct. Results must be correct. If Result is wrong and moves # is correct...you get no points whatsoever

Participant 2: 10 pts rewarded for correct Result/moves #

Participant 3: 7 pts rewarded for closest under (1st-Under) to 45 moves

Participant 4: 6 pts rewarded for the 2nd closest under (2nd-Under) to 45 moves.

Participant 5: 3 pts rewarded closest OVER(1st-OVER) to 45 moves.

Again, the description of Participant 3, 4, and 5 are based on there being no exact prediction as made by Participant 2.

<IF> there is an exact or an under closest, the highest scoring over participant will be 2nd over. The second closest over will be 3rd over. The <ONLY> time there will be a first over is if there is no exact or under winner.

  Jonathan Sarfati: <Big Pawn> is too obtuse and logic-challenged even to admit his own failings. Putting words into my mouth was definitely a straw man and very dishonest, e.g. the "icky b-players" rubbish.

I don't need lessons in logic from this person (compare http://creation.com/loving-god-with...). And why would anyone want to "sit in the company of mockers" (cf. Psalm 1:1), especially witless achievement-free ones like the pawn?

  Jonathan Sarfati: However I agree completely with what <Big Pawn> wrote under "<entertainment and emotions>".
Dec-07-16  Colonel Mortimer: <Jonathan Sarfati: <Big Pawn> is too obtuse and logic-challenged even to admit his own failings. Putting words into my mouth was definitely a straw man and very dishonest, e.g. the "icky b-players" rubbish.>

Don't sweat it, it's his modus operandi - he's at it most of the time on the Rogoff forum and gets similarly slaughtered, only to proclaim some fantasy victory.

Perhaps you are looking for trouble, because you were an atheist "insider?">

This strikes my as a funny question.>

Yes, I find mirrors tend to do that.

<Is it your general view that when unbelievers look at Christianity, they are "looking for trouble"?>

More safety/ free pass.
Atheism is a type of religious, "safe-zone."

<Are you sure you don't want to risk making a guess?>

I'm sure you don't like to answer questions.

Of course, it could just be this:
