People are often amazed that we exist. For example, I have heard on numerous occasions people say something like: "How crazy is it that atoms have aligned in a particular way to produce you and I, in the circumstances that we're currently in, as seemingly conscious beings?"
Is the answer to that:
"It's not crazy, it was bound to happen at some point!" ?
Isn't time so long that every possibility of life, every permutation or combination of every event is bound to occur?
For example, sometime eons in the future or the past, another me could be sitting here writing this exact question, only to make a miniscule typo, and that be one of the only differences between then and now?
Is the fact that I am alive and conscious as I am right now a certainty given how long time is?
