I am well aware of the laws of large numbers, but the fact is, to attribute all such "coincidences" to odds is a faith statement. Unless we have a way to quantify each episode and compare the frequency of such events, we can't know if they are explained by the odds. From a scientific pov we would expect this all to be explained by the laws of very large numbers, but without a model to test this assertion, we are only guessing.
