A poor understanding of probability leads many people to put forward supernatural explanation for events that are far more common than they think. This video shows how probability theory is sufficient to explain even seemingly remarkable coincidences.

The larger number of observations that can be considered in an singular event (numbers, names, colors, shapes, dates etc), the more probabilities will result between "observation" and "event". It's basic mathematics.

I put this in Education, since I thought it would help define the word coincidence and give people a more broad understanding of how the most remarkable events will have more and more similarities the more you you look into the matter.

For fun let's see how many people have coincidences to the following info I give about myself:

How many coincidences do you have with me?

Please remember that the subject matter as corny as it may seem are just variables (observations) in an equation that translates the same to any other event.

Beside the point you are trying to make, are you trying to make identity-theft more accessible to the general public or what!

That is way to much information to just be throwing out there, isn't it?

Peace

PS: we have one thing in common, we drink.
