In his book "the Blind Watchmaker", Dawkins referenced an 18th or 19th century mathematician saying that it is impossible for a chance smaller then 1/10^250 or something (I can't remember the exact figure) to be realised.

So then this implies that chances (or realisable chances) are discrete entities. You could then say that a chance of say 20/100 then consists of (20/100)/(1/10e250)= a great many discrete chances.

What, if any, is the relationship to physical objects to these discrete chances? And how, if at all, do these discrete chances relate to one another.

I have read on talk.origins that things only exist on average. If I remember correctly this means that the existence of a thing is a chance event between the possible states of matter and anti-matter. I'm not to sure about the states being matter and anti-matter, but logically there should be the pairing of states of being realised and not being realised for any chance.

But on the other hand it seems that if chances have a smalles small, then it would be meaningless to for instance make predictions on a series of rolling the ball on the rouletteweel, or rolling dice beyond many times, beyond the smallest small chance.

I want to know this because I want to understand how the chance of reproduction relates to a generalised chance of existence. Darwinists confusingly often use the phrase "struggle for existence" which in literal interpretation is more or less suitable as a description of generalised chance, but not suitable as a description of chance of reproduction.

So... discrete chances? Bullshit, or not?
