These photos have been making the rounds today – two players in the baseball minor leagues who look exactly alike and who each have red beards, and who each chose identical eye wear, and who each have the same name, Brady Feigl.
What are the odds? Incalculable, but I tried. First, I took all of the beaches in the world, and then using a Google search added up all of the grains of sand on all of those beaches. To be objective, I used low tide to avoid ocean bottom bias.
I took that number, 1.47 humptakazillion, and measured it against one grain of sand. But I had to give it up. I was still nowhere near the real odds of this happening. I thought about bringing in other planets with beaches to the calculation, but honestly, I just did not believe Wikipedia’s numbers. Too many spook markers.
I remembered some years back that a similar coincidence had happened, this on a British airway, not the big one, but one that flies overseas routes. I remembered this from one of our old blog posts.
Again we have redheaded men with red beards. The math is now overwhelming. Bringing in other galaxies, much less other planets, will still not get us close to the odds of this happening in nature.
I think someone is messing with us. Either that, or there is more, far more to this story than we are told.
