You're being very sloppy with your language and your thinking here. PROOF, as in absolute inviolable certainty, is irrelevant to reality. I can't PROVE the laws of probability, but that doesn't mean I have to have faith in them to make use of them. There _is_ a useful middle ground--committment. I have committed thousands of dollars over the years to my mastery of the laws of probability, and given the opportunity I will do so again, _until something better comes along_. Your million-coin-flip bet is a cop out; you know it isn't physically possible to test your theory within your lifetime, so you're safe. If you had any balls, you'd offer a bet that's feasible. I offer this one to any takers: flip an unmodified US dime 10 times. If it lands head-up all 10 times, I'll give you $100, otherwise I'll keep the dime.
