Re: What do you mean by chance ?
Keep in mind that it might not be that Mike is ignoring your questions, but that he can't answer them because the significance of the distinction you're drawing isn't obvious to him. You question probably makes no sense to him. He may be following a website whose content he doesn't fully understand yet, and so while he's advocating their position, he can't really defend it.

I wasn't able to make grammatical sense of your last sentence.

So I want Mike to procide an example of somebody who actually claims that "chance...[is] an eternal characteristic that exists where nothing exists"

A reasonable question, but only if Mike actually understands what his words mean. It's fine to continue to pursue an answer, but don't get frustrated if it appears Mike is ignoring you. I don't he is. I think he's responding to what he understands.
