Appeal to Probability

Appealing to Probability is a logical fallacy where one assumes that a thing is inevitable simply because it is possible. Probability can be useful to find out the likelihood of future events, probability is not a fallacy in itself. Appeal to Probability is a fallacy because it is used to assume an absolute.
