A valid proof of such ‘laws’ as ‘What could happen, will happen’ is impossible as they are false. This paper demonstrates this falsehood (Section 1), provides (Section 2) a formal and valid proof of the qualified law: What could happen with non-vanishing (i.e. positive and finite) probabilities, will happen (given sufficient time), and discusses several special cases with specific mathematical probabilities (Section 3). The appendix provides an application of the central result to a very interesting issue of the origin of our universe, proving that it was created, unless another identical one was created.
