Randomness


Definitions:
  • Random: Having no specific pattern, purpose, or objective.
  • Chance: The unknown and unpredictable element in happenings that seems to have no assignable cause.
  • Probability: A measure of how likely it is that some event will occur.
  • Coincidence: A sequence of events that although accidental seems to have been planned or arranged.

It is often claimed; particularly with regards to Quantum mechanics; that random events occur by pure chance and have no cause. Not only can this be proven wrong for many systems, but such an interpretation is purely philosophical rather than scientific. This because in that absence of any possible physical cause the only logical cause is a supernatural one and absolute naturalism forbids any consideration of supernatural causes.

There are several types of events; most are associated with gambling; that are generally considered as random, but they have definite causes.

All of these examples have definite causes and intelligent Human beings are a major factor in what are often considered random events.

Many aspects of human behavior are similar to Quantum mechanics, in that they can be studied in terms of probabilities, but individual behavior is unpredictable.

Those every day events are considered random but they all have causes, and often one or more human beings is the most unpredictable part of the process. Furthermore much of human activity follows probabilistic patterns, much like Quantum mechanics does. At the same time are no such events that lack a cause. Given these facts it is reasonable to conclude that the probabilistic nature of some aspects of nature of some aspects of nature such as those found in Quantum mechanics are actually the result intelligent agency. This make this probabilistic nature evidence not only of Intelligent design but also of intelligent maintenance and control of the natural process of our universe, such an intelligent being would by definition be God.
