Coincidence Theory in the Social Imagination!

We have often heard the media snicker at so-called "conspiracy theories".  In their opinion (being mindful media is controlled by the ruling elite) we should never trust theories that make connections between events in our world look intentionally designed and executed; even when they appear rational and to make sense.

Hollywood movies have been made ridiculing conspiracy theories as the result of deranged minds and paranoid personalities. After all, the idea that things happen in this world due to intention and collusion between influential and powerful people who have trillions of dollars riding on outcomes is just plain silly.....right?

But, the social imagination being all reality we can experience is wide reaching and when you have enough people wondering what is really going on, you have to quell that kind of imagination. So, we have been conditioned to become "Coincidence Theorists" instead. We have been programmed by the media and ruling class to succumb to the notion that conspiracies are few and far between because, after all, no one wants to be labeled a paranoid.

Being a "coincidence theorist"doesn't get the laughs and snickers that those "conspiracy theorists" get, not because there are no real conspiracies, but because the media and elite who depend on you sticking to your programming encourage coincidence theories. You will never get a giggle when tossing out silly coincidence theories. Not ever. We are supposed to believe and rigidly accept that most everything happens by pure coincidence - even when it defies mathematics and history.

A big part of this tendency to roll over and rather believe the far less likely coincidence rather than a conspiracy is that most people are emotionally incapable of dealing with a world where what they believe and see and accept is not at all real. Essentially it is a defensive reaction to protect one's sanity. We all seek security and reliability in our lives.

We desire the world we see to be real and not a smoke screen that hides a larger reality that is often inimical to our well being. We all want to believe that our leaders are sincere. We all want to believe that our money i real. We all want t believe that those in charge are concerned with our welfare.. it is hard to stay sane in a world where nothing can be trusted.

So we all play along and accept the programming that conspiracies never happen (except all throughout recorded history) in the present and are encouraged to come up with fantastical and mindless coincidence theories to explain things.

In God's Word, the Bible, there is exclaimed that we are dealing daily with high-level conspiracies that are aimed against us:  "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" ~ Ephesians 6:12.

  1. Albert Einstein said "Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous". We may call coincidence mindless but God's imagination is far greater and if He has the con then all is in order. Dr. E.F.G
