That is true, but it is consistent with empirical physical evidence about
how the universe works. In non-mathematical language the Axiom of Choice
says that every event need not have an associated cause, and like all good
axioms it is not intuitively obvious that its opposite must be true. And as
a bonus it appears that our Universe follows the Axiom of Choice, some
things really do happen for no reason, some things are random.
