The economic analysis would be carriedout using that mass and average grade, the result being various economicindicators such as net present value and internal rate of return.
After a blockhas been included, its mass is calculated using the thickness for whichthere is a seventy percent chance that the actual thickness will be greater.

It must needs be, therefore, that the greater part of the people are deceived by that indiscriminate and highsounding promise of release from penalty.
The power which the pope has, in a general way, over purgatory, is just like the power which any bishop or curate has, in a special way, within his own diocese or parish.
If we do presume that the chapter title is authorial, then there is a questionover how it should be translated. One interesting issue surrounds the word ('pseudos') translated as'falsehood' by GIFFORD and GIBBON. The word usually means 'lie' inGreek, certainly enough. However it can also be more value neutral than 'lie'or 'falsehood' is in English.
They preach no Christian doctrine who teach that contrition is not necessary in those who intend to buy souls out of purgatory or to buy confessionalia.
In this passage Eusebius is quoting, in thebody of the text, a passage from Plato's , Book II, and the same wordis used there; while elsewhere in the Book 12 he quotes Plato's ,again using this word. In both cases the rendering 'lie' makesperfect sense, in the context of what Plato wanted to say.
Some translators have gone ahead and rendered it 'lie' in their translationsof Plato. But R.G. BURY in the Loeb edition of the Laws ( - online) renders it as 'fiction'. And SirDesmond LEE, in the Penguin edition of the Republic (. - Online) does likewise, andadds the following note on the word:
Every true Christian, whether living or dead, has part in all the blessings of Christ and the Church; and this is granted him by God, even without letters of pardon.
A new variant of this idea has come onto the internet in the last year. The author is Richard CARRIER, editor-in-chief of . His idea is that the chapter heading and the text itself of 12, 31(quoted above) support the idea thatEusebius is dishonest. As far as I know this is original; at least, Gibbondoes not quote the text itself in support of his idea. This idea does notreally seem very possible to me, because it seems to presume that Eusebius iscalling the Old Testament a lie. But here are some brief notes on it.
Nevertheless, the remission and participation [in the blessings of the Church] which are granted by the pope are in no way to be despised, for they are, as I have said, the declaration of divine remission.
They will be condemned eternally, together with their teachers, who believe themselves sure of their salvation because they have letters of pardon.
It is most difficult, even for the very keenest theologians, at one and the same time to commend to the people the abundance of pardons and [the need of] true contrition.
True contrition seeks and loves penalties, but liberal pardons only relax penalties and cause them to be hated, or at least, furnish an occasion [for hating them].
