Coincidences Are Just God’s Way Of Remaining Anonymous
I have to say right up front that I don’t believe in coincidences.
Well not when the word is deemed to mean, “a chance occurrence” anyway.
I have had so many so called “chance occurrences” occur in my life and they continue to happen on an almost daily basis so there is no way that I could call them coincidences.
A simple one, just to give an example.
I used the same coffee mug for 4 years until one morning I broke it and I decided that I’d buy a new one later that morning.
Before going to buy it I decided to stop at a small store similar to a 711 and pick up a few things.
Whilst standing in line a man approached me and asked if I’d like a present and I said ‘Sure’ and he reached into his bag, pulled out a coffee mug and gave it to me.
I’d never seen the man before and haven’t seen him since.
And I hadn’t told anybody that I needed to buy a mug!
I was over sixty years old at the time and nobody had ever given me a cup or mug before and this happened within an hour of breaking mine and deciding to buy a new one.
And the man was a complete stranger.
The odds on this happening would be billions to one.
I don’t think so!
One More Of My Many Coincidences
I decided that I wanted to buy an electric razor but didn’t know which kind to buy so I called a friend in the UK that I was soon to visit, and asked his advice.
He told me that he had two different kinds and suggested that I try them out when I arrived.
I didn’t talk to anybody else about electric razors.
A couple of days later I was walking past a falafel stand and the owner called out to me,
"Michael, do you want an electric razor?".
I went over to see what he was talking about and he told me that he’d just bought a new electric razor and said that I could have his previous one if I wanted it.
He added that it was working fine, so I accepted it and used it for probably another two years.
The odds on the that happening?
