Chance has no power to cause…

Chance has no power to cause anything. It has no power because it is nothing (that is no thing or no being). Chance is a mathematical abstraction with no real existence. Since it is nothing, it cannot do anything. To say that the world was created by chance is to say that it was created by nothing or was “self-created.”
