Quote# 1632

There is no such thing as chance. Just the "appearance" of chance. How could the future unfold, were it not implicitly bound to the past? At what point would such an "interruption" occur? It's all part of the same design.

Ironically enough, many scientists would have agreed until the advent of quantum mechanics. But it appears that, on the tiniest level, there *is* a degree of randomness to the universe. And thanks to chaos theory, such randomness can have profound effects down the line.

I don't know why this quote is being put on here. I agree that there is no such thing as chance (I agree about QM, but calling it \"randomness\" is debatable - it's simply uncaused).

If it weren't for quantum mechanics there would be no transistor, etc.
And order arises from chaos; It's a fact.
