True or False? If x is the year Justin Bieber was born, then x is 1994.

Does a counterexample exist? Could he have been born in a different year?

Justin Bieber was born in 1994.

Since the celebrity teen's body would be the product of two unique gametes having fused together at a certain date, it would seem virtually impossible in even an alternate world or history. If his father had successfully impregnated his mother at just another hour on the same day, the chances of that specific sperm still fertilizing that specific ovum would be incredibly unlikely. This doesn't take into account that a different random combination of the parents' chromosomes would transpire with even the same identical gametes at a different time of fertilization.

If an infinite number of universe variations perpetually arose, then the identical molecular patterns could converge under a different year and also under very dissimilar circumstances from what sired Bieber in this world / history. But a finite and graspable quantity of such only ever existing would rule it out.

Argh, I blame my former reply on it being Friday night. If the date of his birth happened to be close to the very end or very beginning of 1994, then the pregnancy could have been extended or his birth made premature due to natural complications, changing the year to either 1995 or 1993.

Since his conception under actual "test-tube" circumstances would probably be even more unlikely, the other possibility is Bieber's early embryonic stage being removed, frozen for the necessary time, and then implanted back into his mother or another host to change the year he was born. But not much less fantastic.
