Do coincidences mean anything to you? I'll offer: they mean nothing to me. No evidence of secret order to the universe, no guiding forces, no supernatural intelligences. The human mind, so successful at increasing the evolutionary adaptability of the human species because it is so adept at identifying patterns, is also so flawed by the same talent because it so often sees patterns where none exist.

But maybe you believe in Magic?

these two little posts are good. They had a certain comedy to them.
I think I side on you with this one. But maybe there are patterns... coincidental patters without intention...but I guess they don't matter anyways.
That's the funny thing.

I believe in coincidences but I don't trust them
