"...does not say it could have occured." -

Sorry, I fogot a "NOT": A low (a priori) probability does not say, the single event could _NOT_ have occurred".

Greetings, Martin

It looks strange that a further skydiver appeared shortly after the stone passed the camera. But I aggree, the statistic argument is not valid, because *every* single event in our life can be calculated extremely improbable, a priori. If nobody wants it to have reproduced, the (a priori) likelyhood of a single event does not say it could have occured.
