God Of Coincidence?
I couldn't think of what forum subsection this one would belong in so here it is.

I am strange, and sometimes I really wonder how strange I am in comparison to other people. So I'm curious. There was a thread a while back asking why atheists talk to dead loved ones, or why we curse god etc.. This is related in a sort of kind of way Smile

It's an overcast day, but you know you have things that you have to do outside. All day you put it off with the occasional glance out the window, knowing full well that it wont rain until you have to go outside. But time passes and you run out of excuses, you open the door, surprised that it hasn't started flooding. You must be lucky today. So you get to work, maybe cutting the grass and then it happens. The rain. But you push on and finish your work, all the while cursing the rain gods. When you're done you go inside to dry off and get the hell out of the rain. With a towel wrapped around your sopping wet disgusting head you peek out the window only to see that the rain has stopped.

Feels almost too coincidental.
We've all had moments like this one, hell I have tons of them every day. But being skeptics we all brush it off as daily annoyance. Pure coincidence. It can't be god laughing at me, there is no such thing as fate. Or luck.

My question is how many of you have actually gotten mad at the invisible likely to be non existent god? Actually internally debated as to whether there was a douche bag in the sky just fucking with you. Trying to see how far he can take it before your mind breaks.

I actually do this all the time. I believe in the possibility of all possibility, it's likelihood that makes me side one way or another. I can't ever rule something out completely unless there is genuine evidence for it. Even then my brain has a hard time with the idea of 100%.

So for me since I can't actually prove the non existence of a god, there remains a percent chance that there is one, and in that I use likelihood to determine what kind of god it would probably be, and then I narrow it down. To me If there were a god he'd probably be either accidental, or a dick. So that's like 50/50 that if there were a god he would actually find entertainment in fucking with people.

Sometimes things seem far too coincidental. They say bad things come in threes but for me it's like they never end. Don't get me wrong, I have lots of good things in my life, and I find joy in the oddest of things but man. Man oh man. It fucking rains every-time I have to go outside. Unless I bring an umbrella. Then it doesn't. Or if it's summer obviously.

I curse the god of coincidence. Whether he exists or not.
