Luck, and God
« on: December 14, 2002, 12:31:01 AM »
Do yall chalk Luck up to god?  I mean, when something lucky happens to you, do you consider it a gift from god, or just a coincidence?  I mean; I've had SO MANY lucky things happen to me, despite bad things that have happened, that I've come to the conclusion it cannot be a coincidence, and some of it had to come from god.  Examples.

Tonight, at the movies, I found 120 dollars laying on the floor.  A HUNDRED AND TWENTY DOLLARS, just laying there, nobody near it, I couldn't have gave it back if I tried.  Cash. On the Floor.  Luck, or god?

I've never been in a car wreck, even though I've had so many close calls, I oughta be dead.  One time, I backed out of a parking space, without evenlooking, like an idiot.  When I stopped the car, I turned my head around, and almost hit it on the Mirror of the truck, that was STICKING THROUGH MY OPEN WINDOW into my seat.  I was so close to the truck, that it's mirror was inside my car... but I didn't even hit it, and never even saw it there.  Luck, or god?

I've been out to dinner, several, SEVERAL times, and got free food... within the last year.  For instance.  Last week, my bro and me go to Chilis... sit down, get a FAT meal, would have been 30 bucks.  Just as we're finishing, a guy comes out of the back, says the resturaunt is on fire.  We go outside, and then figured out (with everybody else) that it would take them hours to get us back inside, so we just left, = Free food.  Luck, or God?

A couple months ago, I was eating a big steak, and decided I probably couldn't afford it, but went to eat it anyways.  Just as I was finishing, I noticed a fly had fell into my water.  I asked the waiter for another glass, and he apologized (it was NO big deal)... a few minutes later, the manager came over and gave me the meal for free.  Luck, or God?

Twice, in the past 2 years, I've been out with large, LARGE groups from church.  We prayed before we ate, and twice in the last year, I've had some stranger pay for all of our food, just because he saw us bless the food before hand.  One time, the bill had to be well, well over 100 dollars.   Luck, or God?

Yall; I'm extremely lucky.  Stuff like this happens to me all the time.  Yall think it's just coincidence, or god?  I think it would be impossible, for someone like me to just naturally be lucky, I mean, think about it, why would I be any luckier than you? or than my brother?  It makes no sense, but yet I am... I think God's just blessing me for some reason or another.  Comments?

Luck makes no sense, so yeah its God, and did most of that there have to do with food or was it just me? lol

anyways, stuff like that kinda happens to me but different like, its weird stuff that i notice, for example. At school, like the teacher says, close your eyes and pick a number out of this bucket and before i was just thinking how weird it is how i get the number 7 all the time, and so i pick it and i look at it and its 7, or like, im the 7th person who gets picked or 7th in line, or somethin really good happens at 12:07. lol theres more stuff though i cant really remember.

i dont know though, its like you always got to do somethin and step forward to trigger the good stuff to happen a lot of the times, like for example, trauma decided to go eat that steak meal even though he couldnt pay for it, or i had to step up and talk to the girl first and then things would go on good from there., i think i made a few points in this thread here, and kinda just confused myself, lol

Luck is not determined by God.  Random "unexplained" occurences have explanations.  Just because you don't understand why it occurs doesn't mean its unexplainable.

Life is a very dynamic interaction.  Statisically different forms of "luck" are bound to occur to people.  Think for a second, one person is highly "lucky" runs around sayings its god its god.  But there are at least equally as many "unlucky" occurences as their are "lucky" occurences.  

Keep a stats sheet and write down each "unlucky" occurence and each "lucky" one that happens to you.  

I'll define good luck as an unexplainable situation that benefits your life, and bad luck as an unexplainable situation that harms your life.  Now, there is your realm of knowledge we all possess that allows us to understand situations we encounter.  Eventually it is likely that you will encounter a situation that you don't understand which benefits your life.  This situation refered to as luck is really just a lack of information.  

For example, a man has $20 fall out of his pocket and upon realizing this deems it bad luck until he latter realizes he had a hole in his pocket and understands why the money was lost.  You find the $20 and call it good luck, because you don't know about the man with a hole in his pocket.  Events like these do not need God's intervention to occur.

You go to the supermarket and are 5 dollars short for your groceries.  The cashier pulls out 5 dollars gives it to you.  You think its good luck, but you don't know that the cashier just came from sunday mass where the preacher gave an inspiring sermon about giving to those in need whenever possible.  

You get in 15 car crashes and never die.  The fatality rate for car crashes is 10-1.  You think to yourself, god is watching out for me I've survived 15 crashes and the statistical averages say by the tenth one I should be dead.  However, you don't know about all the people who die in their first accident to make sure that average sayed around 1 in 10.

Our knowledge of life is quite limited.  We can't possibly know everything.  It is only logical to assume that eventually we will encounter a situation that helps us but we can't explain it.  It doesn't mean god exists, it only means we dont know all the facts.

yea, i totally agree wit ant since there are also many unlucky people, and that doesnt means that the lack of luck is made by the devil or god



also those $120 you found were from another unlucky guy, and that doesnt means that god wished that he lose that money, cause maybe he needed them more than u

I don't understand the God theory because does that not mean that everyone who wins the lottery has to be holy?  Ant's post was interesting because just think how two people can be involved in exactly the same incident but never know each other.  People meeting their husband/wife is often such a chance meeting, if one thing happened differently then you could never meet your future wife.   But that's what makes the game of life so interesting.  It's one huge gamble.  You're dealt your first hand of cards, some people are screwed straight away, you make your play, you see what happens.  So, like I think God plays no part in the bad things that happen, I don't think he plays a part in the good things.  It's just one big roll of the dice.
