Unclenick, thanks for the answer, but I don't understand it-- probably because I don't understand statistics.

"One half of one percent of all humans ever born is still alive. Therefore I have a one half of one percent chance of living forever."

Your explanation reminded me of that, but that part's a joke.

What I don't see is how statistical equivalence translates into moral equivalence, because they measure very different things. It sounds to me like trying to measure degrees, minutes and seconds of water.
