I've heard a number of people state there are meaningful coincidences. I don't feel such a thing as a meaningful coincidence ever happens. Why do people think that? Read or listen and find out why.
Coincidences Are Meaningful, Just Not Like That
Written by Kyle Hill
A recent episode of the radio show and podcast This American Life [ http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-a ... e-no-story

Coincidences aren’t portents of fate or the cosmos slapping you around, and it is still mistaken to assume that a coincidence was too miraculous to have happened if it did indeed happen.
