Scientists estimate the probability of anyone being born at about ONE IN 400 TRILLION! How are these numbers calculated?
1-Probability of your parents’ meeting: 1 in 20,000.
2-Probability of the same boy knowing this one girl: ONE IN 2,000.
3-Probability of right sperm meeting the right egg: ONE IN 400 QUADRILLION.
4-Probability of every one of your ancestors reproducing successfully: ONE IN TEN, 1:10
5-Probability of your being born: ONE IN 10
So what’s the probability of you being born?
It’s the probability of 2.5 million people getting together- about the population of San Diego- each to play a game of dice- and they all come up with the same exact number- say. 550,343,271,001. We take so much for granted. Pay attention. Every single one of us is a miracle.
Now, go forth and feel and act like the miracle that you are!
