Mathematics professors not grasping the odds

Once I told a Japanese professor of mathematics that math is the language of God. He smiled at that. He of course is a believer in evolution and doesn’t believe in Intelligent design.

I told him the odds of of life evolving due to random chance are astronomically high, “Yes,” he replied, “But not zero.”

I asked him what if a woman told a man he had only a one out of a million chance to win her heart. Does he really have a chance?

“No,” he replied, “not in real life.”

“But professor, we ARE talking about real life!”
