Introduction for Math 419. Uncertainty (Variability) Exists Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) said, ” nothing is certain in life but death and taxes.” Is time of death known? Is amount owed in taxes? Uncertainty (Variability) is Unavoidable reading from Denny & Gaines. Uncertainty Exists.
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) said,
”nothing is certain in life but death and taxes.”
13 Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.“ 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that.”
Albert Einstein said about the notion of chance in nature
“God does not play dice.”
“A very small cause, which escapes us, determines a considerable effect which we cannot ignore, and we then say that this effect is due to chance.”
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,“ declares the LORD. 9 As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
“In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't.”
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD.
23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias.
24 Then they all prayed for the right man to be chosen. "O Lord," they said, "you know every heart. Show us which of these men you have chosen
25 as an apostle to replace Judas the traitor in this ministry, for he has deserted us and gone where he belongs."
26Then they cast lots, and in this way Matthias was chosen and became an apostle with the other eleven.
15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.17He is before all things and in Him all things hold together.
