Coincidences Are Not Very Convincing.

Richard,

I take it you think coincidences such as these indicate the existence of supernatural influences. Does it mean anything to you that skeptics don't?

Do you require coincidences such as these to believe you had a father? Of course not. Other evidence easily convinces you and others that you had a father.

If God or supernatural beings really existed, you wouldn't need these little coincidences to bolster your belief because other supporting evidence would be so much more convincing. The absence of this really good evidence is significant, although not proof. If I were God I would provide much better evidence of my existence, not expect my creations to strain their reasoning capabilities to find reasons to believe in me.

I used to strain to maintain a belief in God but also maintain confidence in science, but I finally realized it was all in vain. If God did exist, he did so little for me and everyone else that he might as well not exist.
