When Quentin Meillassoux says that "contingency is a necessity", "contingency is absolute", etc. what is trying to imply is that everything is contingent. But (where) has he proven that? It is true that "anything can happen" is a common adage. But as a person who is coming from a physics background I can say that science is not very comfortable with the Meillassoux's idea of contingency. We know that in science, certain things can be predicted with amazing accuracy. I know that Meillassoux would say that past experiences do not guarantee that things would repeat in the future. But as far as I am concerned, to make a bold claim that contingency is a necessity, one must be able to provide a solid proof and mere gut feeling (probably based on life experiences, etc.) is not enough. Therefore I am grateful if someone could kindly explain on what basis that Meillassaoux says that everything is contingent.
