Actually the probability of the existence of a unicorn can be assessed. We have to identify the possible regions in genetic space where a horn protein could mutate (and the horn has been found to be a rare mutant in many mammals), decide if these regions are befitting of a horse, and then test the blood of the horse for any indications of parasite resistance or synthesizing telomerase in soma cells.

Can any such experiments be done on the existence of a god?

Just curious...do you have any understanding of the mathematical concept of likelihood?

Would love to hear how your "it either happens or it doesn't" method of analyzing probability reconciles with fundamental mathematical concepts.

Well...you're adding different context to the unicorn. I'm talking about the general concept of a beautiful horse with a horn on its head. Now, the mythological contexts are something separate.

Of course, the mythological claims related to unicorns are far less extraordinary than the claims associated with most deities.
