  •  Actually, that greatly underestimates the odds (3+ / 0-)

    No one was ever destined to be one of the 6 billion.  You have to compare against all the potential people that might have been born under slightly different circumstances, but weren't.   If your mother had had a headache that night, you never would have been born. In fact, because she didn't have that headache on your conception day, somebody else who would have been conceived the next night never came into existence.  And of course there's the whole point of which sperm cell won the race; if you're dad had yawned an extra time your spermy might not have been the one that made it.  

    The odds against any individual coming into existence are so astronomical as to be beyond human comprehension.   And yet the ones who won the lottery are here talking about it while all the others are not.
