Superior Beings If They Exist How Would We Know?: Game-Theoretic Implications of Omniscience, Omnipotence, Immortality, and Incomprehensibility

For us, that means a coin flip results in heads exactly 50% of the time and tails exactly 50% of the time. It means that rolling a 6-sided die results in a 4 exactly 1/6 of the time.
