If someone was to flip two coins and they both landed heads up, and the person proclaimed that it was a miracle, that for such an anomaly to occur is supernatural, proof of a higher power… I would struggle to believe them. For starters, the odds aren’t that high, getting two consecutive heads is one in four which doesn’t cut the grade for mystic phenomena.
anyway, the universe… it contains lots of atoms (say about 10^79). What are the odds that these particles are going to arrange themselves to create life as we know it? I don’t know the number of permutations but it’s going to involve the number of atoms and the number of possible movements of these atoms. That’s a big number; that’s really, totally-unimaginably big. So the odds don’t look good. However if we consider a closed oscillatory universe or a multiverse (meta-universe/parrallel universes) then there can be infinite opportunities for a ‘miraculous’ universe to be born. So the odds sit at one-really-big-number to infinity which is as good as one to one.
In these cases, where the birth of universes occurs infinitely, I deduce that it isn’t just likely that a universe such as the one I see before me will precipitate, it’s inevitable. It’s a mathematical certainty. It’s safer than two up. Sure I’m relying on the existence of an oscillatory universe or a massive multi-verse but other than that this thinking seems pretty sound. At least i think so, but I’m no cosmologist… or whoever professionally dwells on this stuff.
