2. A seemingly very improbable coincidence occurs and it is a positive life changing event for someone. For example you are involved in a serious car accident ...[text shortened]... you then say that God is suppressing some random coincidences in order to fit in his miracles?
I heard a story once, not sure if it's true, about a man that came out of a building onto a busy city sidewalk exclaiming loudly there is no God while shaking his fist at the sky daring God to strike him dead.
Later on when he got home he opened the screen door and a moth flew into his mouth choking him to death.
If this story is true then I believe it was a coincidence.
God obviously can work miracles, but I've only heard of them, and have never seen one. At least I don't think so.
