Statistically supportable/Scientifically Explainable/Reasonable Odds?
(in no premeditated order)

1. “Youngest kids having loudest voices”, is explained by Darwin’s theory

Could this have been the motivation for Darwin’s theory (something about mothers and necessities)

2. Existence of an analogy between the temporal extents of civilization/nations and that of humans

3. Persistence of the analogy between microscopic and macroscopic structure even for social interactions

4. Laws of the jungle explaining all human interactions

5. Existence of an implicit symmetry in life itself:

“Babies haven’t any hair;
old men’s heads are just as bare;
between the cradle and the grave
lies a haircut and a shave.”

— Samuel Hoffenstein

6. Existence of an acceptable/reasonable convergence of science and religion

That this convergence leads to a gradual loss of the scientific method bringing us back to the middle-ages (is it covered under No.3?)

7. That there is an answer to the questions of life

a) That Douglas Adams was right about the answer

b) That Douglas Adams was right about the question

c) That Douglas Adams was right about the Earth!

8. Entertainment industry is all about the Chicken & the Egg problem (the unfertilized one) at another level (is this covered under No.3?)

Should this be rephrased as “No.3 operates in more ways than we can comprehend”? Or is it a combination of No.3 & No.4

9. Astrology was an attempt to model observed trends, devised when date & time were still described in terms of positions of heavenly bodies

10. “You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else.”
