The Second Coming

With all of the advancements with technology and computers, I wonder if anyone has applied the use of statics and probability to the likelihood of Jesus returning to the earth?

In Ancient Greece, the gods, such as Ares, Apollo, and Aphrodite, shared the earth with their human subjects. Well, maybe not shared, but the earth, sun, and sky were for their enjoyment as well as for humankind. Today, we live in an age of precision. If you can't find it on a balanced scorecard, then it might as not well exist.

So here is my question...maybe I can outsource the problem to India...what is the probability that Jesus will come to earth during my lifetime? 10%? 1%? .01%? .0000001%? My gut feeling thinks it is in the 3% to 5% range +/- 10%, but I can't provide an educated guess without doing the math, and since I'm no statistician, it may take the rest of my life before I can give any justifyable answer, so for now I'll just go with my gut.
