What does it me to when something so very improbable actually happens? Does it mean that it’s a sign? Does it mean it’s a miracle?
Last October I encountered what I interpreted to be signs. The last of the three was encountering a woman that so adamantly disagreed with what I was doing that she found it within herself to grab my hand and stop me from doing it. What was I doing you might ask…I was fiddling with my finger nails.
What is the probability of that happening…
number of people that don’t like fiddling with finger nails divided by number of people in the world multiplied by
number of people in the world willing to grab someone’s hand to stop someone else divided by number of people in the world multiplied by
number of people that find interracial relationships acceptable divided by number of people in the worldÂ multiplied by
number of couples in interracial relationshipsÂ divided by number of couples in the worldÂ multiplied by
number of people that like footballÂ divided byÂ number of people in the world multiplied by
number of people that attend live football gamesÂ divided by number of people in the world multiplied by…
Hopefully, you get the point. That probability is so small that when it occurs it would seem to be a miracle or sign. But, what I have learned is that the combination of those occurrences(that probability) actually happening doesn’t mean anything. G-d doesn’t exist or at least I don’t exist in G-d’s eyes.
Do “signs” exist in your world?
