Personally, I don't believe in them because of Chaos Theory, as often
illustrated by "The Butterfly Effect". If there were anything whose
final outcome wasn't influenced by HQBH, how could there be anything
whose final outcome was? All events interact and interplay.
Perhaps because HKB"H could "accept" a result gotten to in different ways. A simple example might be a bet between 2 people on the roll of the dice. If the roll is 7 or less a wins, 8 or more B wins. Hkb"h wants A to win, he only "interferes that the roll not be 8 or more, but the roll could be 5 or 6 etc. Say they played twice and both times a 5 was rolled - that would be "coincidence"?
