comment Regarding the validity of probability theory
Also, what if at the tome you roll a dice, someone "A" beside you "decide" to change/bias the surface on which the dice will fall. You can have a probability that "A" will reside to some external criteria, but you can never be sure (100%) that "A" will decide or not to change the surface on which the dice will fall.

@Uracilo "Picking" a square-free number from the integers is an "action" that one can do. Therefore it may "happen". Also, dying is something that happens. Will you be able to get the exact time when someone will dye assuming that you have a full knowledge of all variables of physical nature ? Or will you just give a probability ?

comment Regarding the validity of probability theory
Probability do make sense, unless you are able to control variable that exists (including those influencing the universe itself), which would mean that you are even able to predict the future. You took the example of rolling a dice which basically Depends on physics low, that if you are able to control them then you will be able to reproduce exactly the same result. But you can also consider "the time when you will die" as a random variable which is not so deterministic (unless you can predict future).

comment Function F(x,y) which is high when (both x and y are high) and (x is close to y)
@Joel yes it needs to be continuous. The function that you proposed have the same behaviours as $x^2 + y^2$, isn't it ?
