Listen up, I’m about to make you feel more special than anyone has in your entire life. I’m going to mathematically break down how much of a miracle you are.
The probability of your parents meeting: 1 in 20,000
The probability of your parents having a kid: 1 in 2,000
So far the combined odds of you being here are: 1 in 40,000,000. So about the state of California
The odds of you being the lucky 1 in 1 trillion sperm from your daddy for that 1 special egg in your mommy: 1 in 400,000,000,000,000,000.
The odds of your family line even lasting long enough for your parents to even have the opportunity of making you: 1 in 10⁴⁵⁰⁰⁰
But wait, that would mean the right sperm would have to meet the right egg every generation of your family, the odds of that? 1 in 10²⁶⁴⁰⁰⁰⁰
So that means the right sperm meeting the right egg 150,000 times to make you. The odds of that: 1 in 10²⁶⁸⁵⁰⁰⁰. Yeah, a 10 with 2,685,000 zeros following it.
So the odds that you exist at all are basically zero. Think about that.
