I've never watched the Matrix and the Omen is a pretty creepy movie...but Constantine was really good, it was based on a long running comic book series and the protagonist (John Cnstantine) was fighting for good, not evil.

I say that mideast would be of the opinion that the movie Constantine promotes the idea that Satan is of a power to rival God. Also just because the protagonist of a movie is not evil or satanic (in this case even actively fighting evil) doesn't say the same for the movie itself. Constantine does present a worldview in which humans are seemingly reduced to pawns in a cosmic game of chess.
Although I don't personally know of any fellow Christians who are of the view that the cosmic balance between good and evil is of such a precarious nature It is fairly regularly presented as such "artistically". Simply dogmatically, and that says nothing of abounding personal views of the same, that Christians view God as Almighty and therefore of infinitely more power then a created being such as Satan. Although granted we tend to bestow greater power on him then the majority of Islam who view him as a djinn rather than a fallen angel.

I don't know about numerology to much of a degree, but I don't subscribe to it either, because who says you have to add those digits ? What governs the rules / laws of numerology ? For instance I can make 18 come to 11 also.
! + 8 = 9 then add the two digits = 11.edit on 9-3-2013 by randyvs because: (no reason given)
Regardless, whether or not one choose to subscribe to the possibility that numerology may be the science of the law of the digital dimension, it is rather astonishing that the number 11 continuesly appears in specific places around me whether or not one must add the numbers together or not. It is still an "odd coincidence" and I thought the enigmatic reality of "coincidence" was the very topic of discussion here.

The next time you hear the word COINCIDENCE, being used anywhere by anyone, or even if you hear it in your own mind. My hope is you will remember this thread and look a little more closely to events, as they unfold before you.
To me coincidence is two people who live in the U.S. and grow up together, but haven't seen each other in years,
bump in to each other in Paris, France. Let this example be the # in my heading and for the rest of the thread, I will be addressing the ? marks. As they will represent historical events and the symbolism used in our society.
Lets look at four words and their definitions along side each other first. As I believe the logistics of this thread can be seen much easier by doing so. Pay most attention to the last word defined.
Coincidence - Striking occurrence by mere chance of two or more events at one time. The act, fact or condition, of coinciding.
Coincide - To concur
Synchronicity - Events that appear to be connected but have no demonstrable casual relationship.
Synchronize- ( Def.4. As it appears in the text ) To cause to agree in time of occurrence, to ASSIGN to the same time or period as in HISTORY.
Have you ever wondered why your teacher used a five pointed star on your paper in grade school. I did and in fact I asked the question often in this form and I quote myself. " Why do you put the sign of the werewolf on my paper ? " I hated that as a little kid. As I became an adult and reflected on the irony of what most of you will deem as insignificant. It's beyond easy to see why not one teacher could answer my question with anything but, " Coincidence ". I just wasn't familiar with the world enough to ask the question in its proper form i.e
Why do we use a symbol of evil to signify something that is supposedly good ? ( Evil or not I chose a link that presents both sides of the argument )
As on our flag, sheriff's office, hundreds of corporations, and a little kids paper ? I don't think my teachers could have possibly known, bless their hearts that this symbol is actually a very often used in satanic rites. Often to conjure demons. As the rock band MONSTER MAGNET signifies by their title.
Just to touch on one last thing concerning a theological point of view. It is amazing to me how willing science is to believe in coincidence upon coincidence rather than just accepting an Intelligent Designer, Creator, God.
But enough of religion.
Lets turn to politics and what history refers to as the coincidental parallels between two Presidents of the U. S. Kennedy and Lincoln. I really don't know what to make of this, but in my honest opinion
there is far to much coincidence going on here, to be called coincidence. But to suggest any thing else, we would have to turn to something in the realm of the paranormal. Well, at least I'm in the right forum. The redundancy of the parallels is beyond belief. Maybe some of members can find a different explanation, because I've looked.
Any ways I could go on and on with what we are expected to believe is coincidence in our history. From 911 to hurricane Sandy and Sandy Hook itself.
I'm thinking something more sinister is at work in our world, than coincidence.
Does it seem that way to you ?
