Bob Graber thinks that coin flips would not be unpredictable if the
flipper contolled all the variables. I guess this would be true, but
it wouldn't be what we were talking about. We know the probabilities
of a particular flip, however, right now and the wonderful thing is
that we can predict those probabilities after the fact from an
increasingly large number of flips that approximate a 50%
probability of each side turning up. Having everything
contolled is inherently uninteresting and is not determinism but
mapping reality one to one. It is not science, it is life!
