That winning streak happens or it doesn't. 50/50, right? Or am I misunderstanding your stance that you stood by since you were 7?Or that a one in 1million, 1billion, or 1trillion year winning streak dosen't happen to me. — XanderTheGrey

Which is problematic as that applies to opposites. — Jeremiah
I think of it this way; in the bigger picture, considering an infinite time span, infinite space, matter & energy; a being somewhere could win a in gambling every single time it plays(lets say several times a day) for 90 years of its 100 year life. Thats event is a possibility. — XanderTheGrey
OK, no argument with it being a possibility. It is the expressing of the odds of this possible situation as 50/50 that I didn't understand. If you are beginning to question doing so, then I approve.I do not know when exactly I took this stance, but yes.

Well, if there is a chance - or if "chance" not equal to zero — tim wood
It most certainly is, but where do you get the 50/50 from? The odds of that happening are 100%, not 50%. — BlueBanana
↪Jeremiah If you die the time frame is not infinite. That's why I added "assuming you live infinitely". — BlueBanana
Well, I mean the odds of it happening at any given time, in any given place. Would be 50/50 right? In infinite space there is unlimited potential for something to reach out and intervene. — XanderTheGrey
It dosen't matter how long your life is, its matters how long things have been going, how long the omniverses life span is(infinite in this case). — XanderTheGrey

No, if you throw a die the odds of getting 1 are at any given time and in any given place 1/6. — BlueBanana
How long the life is does matter in this case. How long the lifespan of omniverse is is irrelevant to any case. One of the most basic rules of probability is that the history of events does not change the odds of any outcome. — BlurBanana
This assumes that space and time are not manipulated. — XanderTheGrey
