    You can believe or not believe, but I can't deny the supernatural "coincidences" that follow the things I pray about. - Iriddle

    I was an evangelical, born-again for a decade after the cult. I also noticed these 'coincidences'. Then I became an atheist and nothing changed. It's called selection bias.

    Along with the "sunk cost fallacy"",, naieve misles people have to pin their hopes on something.

    When you think of it,,,they've had their thinking done for them for years if not decades.

    Its impossible for them to just let go.

    What if it isn't just selection bias? Just because a natural disaster occurred, it doesn't mean God is not real! Jesus spoke about these things in

    Luke 13

    There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? 3 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? 5 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
