Based on your experiences and observations in
life, what, if you were a betting person, are the
chances that God is dead or that there never
was one?  50/50, 10 to one,
100 to 1, 1000 to one, million to one?

Why would you assume that, to the extent one might consider the existence of the supernatural, one would focus exclusively on a singular entity?  Or that one would describe the entity or entities using the proper noun "God" that gives away that you're unable to consider anything but the assumed existence of the one entity you are obsessed with?  How could a god or gods, had it/they once existed, now be dead?  What or who would kill a god?  Since there is no empirical evidence for a god or gods ever having existed, what could constitute evidence of their death?

Oh yeah, you wanted a simple answer.

One.

Zero, based on your experiences and observations in
life, what, if you were a betting person, are the
chances that Osiris is dead or never was?
