I have been teaching statistics for many years at the university level - but this question is beyond my understanding - due to the variables involved.
Several years ago, I was entertaining a relocation to a different area and a different way of life. I was very unsure and skeptical - as the change would have followed my heart - but not the rational practicality of my head.
Then a sequence of events took place - none of which were of my own choosing. I want to know what the statistical probability is of these events occurring by chance alone. They are as follows:
1) The property I had wanted to buy was already under contract, yet came back on the market on the anniversary of my father's death.
2) My immediate offer to purchase was accepted by the sellers (two days later) on the anniversary of my grandmother's death.
3) My loan was approved by my bank on the anniversary of my late grandmother's birthday (7 days later)
4) Our closing date was set by the title company on the anniversary of my late, great-aunt's birthday.
5) The permit for our business (for which we brought the property) was approved and issued on my parent's anniversary.
Can the probability of these dates be statistically determined?
