It is sort of interesting in a way that in philosophy, Determinism is the scientific paradigm. In fact science is almost totally premised on some form of determinism. Rationality and reason require determinism. That said the notion of "chance" stands out as being totally unproven in science. Chance itself means what? How do we prove the reality of chance using the scientific method? Does chance have any reality beyond being a mental construct that allows us "qualified speculation"?
