George Lucas has stated himself several times that the Force is unbalanced while the Sith are alive.

Think of a food diet. To balance your diet you must have good foods to eat. If you mix in some bad ones, you have imbalanced your diet. That is what the Sith were to the Force. It was like they were a cancer that needed to be cured.

Lucas put in the dialogue of Mace Windu and Yoda doubting it so it wasn't something that was set in everybody's mind that it would just happen and that Anakin would have to be the one. That's human nature for people to think independently and doubt things that are really there. Mace and Yoda were having doubts about Anakin at that time (and for good reason) and when you have doubts, you rethink some of your beliefs. Lucas put that realism in there brilliantly.

Mace Windu almost became the Chosen One ironically.

"You were the Chosen One! It was said you would destroy the Sith not join them! Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!"
-- Obi-Wan Kenobi to Anakin Skywalker on Mustafar
