HBO is running a special titled "Abortion". I didn't watch the whole thing but in channel surfing I caught 30 seconds. In the bit I caught, the
women describing why she decided to start protesting a local abortion clinic. She said her name was Ann. And when she drove by the Planned
Parenthood building should would see "ann" in the word "Planned". And she said she thought the Lord was talking to her because her name "ann" was in
the word "Planned".
I've always been fascinated with the nature of superstition and how people have it. I have seen people take portions of their life experiences and
make them mean something supernatural. Just like Ann did with her sign from God. So my question is once you go down this path how do you manage what
is supernatural and what is not. It seems to me this kind of loose interpretation of our life experiences would be fraught with misinterpretations
that could lead to terrible outcomes like the burning of witches. Maybe NOTHING could be attributed to supernatural causes. How does one judge the
right balance between supernatural causes and mundane causes?
Many of founding fathers for deists. Deists believe God, our creator, created the Universe and the laws of physics. But deists believe once God
created the Universe, he does not actively participate in how it unfolds.
So the question becomes is superstition real? Does God participate in the affairs of man? And how does anyone know how to properly interpret the
