Just a Coincidence

Posted by Dr. Patrice Smith

What we know a coincidence to be, is when something uncanny happens, when two or more seemingly unrelated events occur at the same time.

I believe that there are no "coincidences" - there is a deeper order, an overarching purpose of the universe. I do not believe that things just happen! but occur in a uniformly and orchestrated way by the universe and the energies that we emit.  One could argue therefore, going back some millions of years ago, to how humans came about. Were we ''coincidences," lucky accidents of evolution? Are the events in our lives objective or subjective?

For those with a highly empirical bent, a coincidence is happenstance, a simultaneous collision of two events that has no special significance and obeys the law of probability (mathematically speaking). For the mystically inclined, however, a coincidence is a synchronicity, the purposeful occurrence of two seemingly unrelated events. 

Which are you?

It is no great wonder if in long process of time, while fortune takes her course hither and tither, numerous coincidences should spontaneously occur. ~ Plutarch

    First I wanted to thank you for coming by. We hit a bit of blog burn-out and needed a break. Still working our way back slowly. Hmmm...I believe we have a clear beginning and a clear end to our life. God knows the outcome of all that we will become because of our experiences. We make choices along the way that change our path from time to time. He allows us that freedom because he wants us to choose Him. I don't believe that coincidences are random at all. I think everything in life has meaning, and that even small events in life change us in some way. We were created...and I think it can be argued that if someone feels strongly about scientific answers, that it still doesn't have to be random. God could have made the big bang occur to start the world into existance. This is a hard topic to write about in a comment:) Holly

    I believe in creation, and that everything happens for a reason. It might seem like a coincidence or happenstance to our simple minds, but in my opinion, God is in control of everything.
