"Who touched my clothes?" - A Miracle Whose Probability is almost Zero

Tokyo and Tokyo Bay

A Miracle Whose Probability is almost Zero

If there was no sun in this universe, there would be no earth, no mankind, and none of you.

But the sun is just one of the fixed stars of 300 billion in our galaxy that is just one of 300 billion galaxies in the whole universe.

The probability of the existence of our sun is less than 1/10^23 or 0.00000000000000000000001.

In addition, it is thought that the total number of all the species that have ever lived on the earth is 20 million. So, the human species is one of 20000000 (2 x 10^7) species.

Accordingly, the probability of the existence of the mankind is less than 1/10^31 or 0.000000000000000000000000000001.

If you have a bet with anybody on something that can be possible only at a probability of 0.0000000000000000000000000001%, you would surely have a gamble on that it would never happen.  But, the mankind exists at a probability less than 0.0000000000000000000000000001%.

In reality, we, the mankind, exist at 100% of probability.  It is a miracle.  But can we believe that it is God that allowed this miracle to occur?  Or should we stick to an idea that we, the mankind, just happened to come to exist by chance or accident?

Anyway, if we believe that God created this universe, the sun, and the mankind riding out a probability less than 0.0000000000000000000000000001%, we may expect that God might allow another miracle for us whose probability is less than 0.0000000000000000000000000001%.

If we don't believe in God, we would simply not expect anything whose probability is less than 0.0000000000000000000000000001% to happen.

From a rational point of view, we had better believe in God.

Mar 5:27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
Mar 5:28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
Mar 5:29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
Mar 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
