In the batch of articles I’ve done on “chance” over the last month or so, my main target has been the only kind of “chance” that makes much sense in an atheistic framework, and that is what I have called “Epicurean chance”.

Epicureanism has been a philosophically dubious claim ever since Democritus suggested it four centuries before Christ.
