Nobody said it did.

Thus to say that something happens by chance is really saying nothing.


Nonsense. It's important to distinguish between situations where we can predict exact outcomes and situations where we can't. If you fire a shotgun out the window, you can predict that there will be a bad outcome. If you bet on seven, you can't. Betting depends on luck. Firearms often do not.

Yip. A few years ago someone fired one shot at a crowd from the top of a high-rise building close to Ellis Park. There were 20 000 people sitting on the stand he could see from that window. The shot hit one person.
