There are infinite possibilities of the cosmos. Therefore, the chance of our current existence is mathematically 1/(infinity). 1/(infinity) is zero, so there is no possibility of this existance. Logic is not logical because if everything was logical existence would not be possible and I would not be writing this.
I myself am a scientist (although I don't like being called names xD). I find the language of mathematics to be much better than verbal communication. Mathematics is the language of truth. Because truth is the function of logic's and logic is the subject of mathematics (yes it is all circular. But this is just a circle I like). Now 1/inf is not 0. 1 over infinity doesn't have a meaning ;) So as our existence.
