In physics it can all be explained and guessed with 100% accuracy, but when a human is throwing the dice, he can not calculate all that in short period of time, so for us it is chance, but for the physical, or computer-like view of throwing the dice, it is not chance, it is a mathematical thing. So "chance" is pretty much a point of view, but since that only interests us humans, then from our point of view there IS a "chance".

Quote:If everything happens because of it's circumstances, then there's no possibility of the existence of a chance different than 100%.

But when you can not control ALL the tinniest circumstances, then you have a "chance" of something happening and it is not 100%. It's all about how much of circumstances you control, the more you do, the batter chances you have.

That it's a point of view, and therefor part of the human logic is indeed a possibility. From human perspective, we consider every relatively realistic scene (based on our knowledge) as a possibility, while there is only one possibility in the end.

Still though there is always a 100 chance that things will happen the way they will, it's just when our knowledge doesn't help us, or when things get too complicated for our minds to handle, that we rely on chances. So it's actually just a measurement of prediction-correctness?
