"Probability of your existing at all: 1 in 10^2,685,000

As a comparison, the number of atoms in the body of an average male (80kg, 175 lb) is 10^27. The number of atoms making up the earth is about 10^50. The number of atoms in the known universe is estimated at 10^80.

So what’s the probability of your existing? It’s the probability of 2 million people getting together – about the population of San Diego – each to play a game of dice with trillion-sided dice. They each roll the dice, and they all come up the exact same number – say, 550,343,279,001.

A miracle is an event so unlikely as to be almost impossible. By that definition, I’ve just shown that you are a miracle.

Now go forth and feel and act like the miracle that you are."
