Scary Coincidence
Do anyone else experience scary Coincidences and think something supernatural is going on or worry about it. I think more towards the athiest vue but then theses odd thing seem to happen and it makes me wonder for example I often worry/think about coincidences one time I was thinking about this and how some apologists use this argument then went back to watch one of aaron ra videos I had pused the first thing aaron said wen I pressed play was about coincidences it really freaked me out.

RE: Scary Coincidence
Yes and it's not supernatural at all. We are pattern-making creatures (via evolution) and that causes us to make patterns (or see coincidences) quite frequently.

You might be interested in the book The Improbability Principle by David J. Hand. He applies factors that show how and why coincidences appear quite frequently (and should be expected).

Coincidences happen to everybody. They are normal and part of our make up. Seeing coincidences (i.e. making patterns) were and are a survival technique.

It's really interesting--our brains are set up that way. There's a really good video that I posted before on why we are actually predisposed psychologically speaking to think this way. I'll see if i can find it and post it.
