I hope there's not a thread like this...


Do you believe a supernatural force of some kind can give you signs or hints regarding certain situations or the future? Or are they just strange coincidences? Elaborate!

This happened to me all in the same day:




Maybe it's a sign I really am destined to go to hell. But I think it's just a funny coincidence.

Do not really care about supernatural signs or anything nor do I really believe in such things.


But I find it interesting when one see patterns like those in daily life.

I don't believe in supernatural signs. Your profile view count and amount of forum posts will definitely be up to 666 at some point in time if it's continuously rising. It's a number like any other and won't be skipped after 665. You, yourself posted your 666 post at the same time your profile was up to 666 views, not sure how or why anyone would consider that a sign when it's in control of you and other people, nothing supernatural made your posts or views go up. A glitch could, but not something supernatural.

I don't believe in some silly things, but I do feel as though there will always be things that seem misplaced or happen to give a supernatural-esque feel to your surroundings. If you believe in the signs involving negativity, you should consider the signs relating to positivity. Example: driving down the freeway and seeing a crash take place in front of you, destroying 3 cars in the process. Some people can see that as a blessing they weren't affected. Others would believe it's a small reminder that you should be careful on the road, pay attention and follow the rules. How about I give you a REAL example?

A friend of mine, 23 male, loves sports cars. He drove an '08 Mitsubishi Lancer and had some parts customized. To state that he loved his car to death would be an understatement. He drove one night down a winding road because he couldn't sleep, and driving seemed to alleviate his insomnia. This road was a familiar one, so he was relaxed. As he attempted to shift to 3rd gear, he realized his brakes weren't working. At that moment, he looked to his passenger seat and told his friend -- yes, he had a passenger -- to hold on. The car then veered and struck a hill, causing the car to flip and fall off the road. The vehicle landed upside-down but not after having flipped multiple times in the process. He, my friend, awoke and immediately got out the car, to which he then dragged the passenger out as well. This very same man almost attempted suicide 6 years ago by leaning on the edge of a bridge in New York. He has nightmares every night about the safety of his friends and family, especially having lost many friends who went to the military and never came back. Guess what's become of him? He's finally got back into college, he's going to music festivals to express himself, is DEAD SET on procuring an '08/'09 EVO and now DJ's at random gigs.

Okay, maybe that was an extremely terrible example... But even though he's been through some tough things, he's always bounced back. He and I truly believe that we can fight/change our course in life by not letting these things keep us down. He may be in debt, but he's alive. He may be without his favorite car, but he's now able to do his favorite past-time.

TL;DR: Hell yeah. But you can tell that supernatural force to go and eat an extremely large cactus on fire with scorpions inside of it.

I'm not convinced that the "signs" are supernatural or anything, but I certainly believe that patterns and clues exist. Some are more easily noticed and understood than others, is all. I believe that we pick up on alot of the clues unconsciously, and that we may view things that help bring it all to the surface. Kind of like someone having a word or phrase "on the tip of their tongue," and that seeing something (even if unrelated) may suddenly jog his/her memory.

I think it's coincidence. Plenty of times I've checked the clock and it says 13:37.

Plenty of unlikely thing happen to us without our notice, it's just that some of them stick out to us mentally.

both

some things are just coincidences, but if everyone is staying away from you it's a probably good sign that you need to take a bath

666 is written as 616 in some manuscripts... If you read Revelation in the context of the time it was written and most importantly, all the way through, you'd be less likely to be thinking along those lines... sooooo I'd be skeptical. {Barclay's Daily Study Bible Series on Revelation is a good place to get much better insight... You can pick up the two books used for about $5 or so each.}

Now when the timing belt on my little Ford Escort went out I was driving down High-way 520, going from Seattle to Belleview. I heard it pop and the engine died. I was in 4th gear and I saw that there was an exit up ahead, so I popped in the clutch and took the exit. Just As I was getting to the top of the ramp,the light changed to green for me and I saw a 76 service station to the right. I turned right, still coasting on momentum and ended up parked in a parking slot at the side of the building. They had a guy who was on duty and after about three hours and $175, the timing belt was replaced along with my alternator belt too. (it was all cracked and beginning to fray). This was back in about 1991 or there-abouts...

Ummm, I was still going to church quite often.

Sign or coincidence?

Everything is a coincidence. You technically shouldn't exist but you do. Things are just how they are, I guess.

I think there are signs and coincidences. It kinda depends on the situation and how strong it is.
