Dying is inevitable. It is an accepted truth. The odds of dying are the best odds you’ll ever be given. Have you ever considered the odds of being given life? Well, if death is the best odds you have in life, your being alive is the worst odds you can imagine.

Dr. Banzier is a graduate of Harvard College, UC San Diego School of Medicine, and Cambridge University. Trained as a physician, business consultant, and behavioral change therapist. The good doctor determined that the probability of you existing at all comes out to 1 in 102,685,000 — yes, that's a 10 followed by 2,685,000 zeroes!

Some might even say it’s a miracle you are here at all.

Someone suggested that if you imagine there was one life preserver thrown somewhere in some ocean and there is exactly one turtle in all of these oceans, swimming underwater somewhere. The probability that you came about and exist today is the same as that turtle sticking its head out of the water — in the middle of that life preserver… on one try!

Now to those who chose by faith to believe there is not a creator with a grand design, these thoughts seems pointless.
