Stepehen Toulmin writes that probability is a myth. Just reduces to your willingness to bank on something!

You may know the sun will rise tomorrow by future-detection I guess; but otherwise you guess. A human was once hit by a meteorite from space! Can you prove anyone will not be hit tommorrow?

Inductive arguments according to a philosophy text, are not logically valid (but have a place in pragmatism, reasonableness ideas, etc.)

Live in God and no need to worry about whether He wil create the sun tommorrow. The future may feel as if it is already known, feels free yet secure- when conscious of your own being created. Everything is being created right now: because now is being created now.
