Why the hell would you assume that? All of the things you are pointing out are easily attributed to coincidence, psychology, or a combination of the two.

Then they don't edit. And if they do edit, the next person simply reverts it. Using Wikipedia as your only source is silly, of course. But it makes for a pretty good foundation. There are people monitoring it. One of my friends is on that team, so I know I've watched him give our school a temporary IP ban from editing and then revoke it to do something from school.

Indeed. I've seen it in action

I'm talking about the book (yes, something without a screen. Amazing aint it.) by Brian Greene. And if thats what you got from it (assuming you read the book) then you have problems. Only about a third or half is based on string theory.

And I have seen the video you are talking about. The PBS nova thing? Nothing to do with the book. Aside from the name. The video is dumbed down for the idiots of the nation who didn't graduate from college.
I thought that might be it. They never put the good parts on video... I may just have to find the book to see what I missed out on.

I don't believe in coincidences. Since there's dejavu. In my brain if I feel that I've been here/done that before, then it was meant to happen and simply not cognitive processes out of sync. What about a dream? Has anyone ever had a dream that you could remember and what was in your dream actually happended? That's fate to me.

Emily Rose had an un-fatal case of epilepsy in which she didn't take her medication, and some psychological disease(I can't remember the name) that instilled images in her brain. She was not 'controlled by demons'. The priest was even proven guilty, but he got off.

This absolutely outrules luck since everything would fall into place at the exact time and place no matter what. So I guess, we don't all have control of our lives? Nothing can happen out of the ordinary because it was already meant to happen?

None of you touched the subject of Stigmata. There have been times people lied about them having it, but I knew someone who has it and it was horrifying. They even had some showings of it on the History Channel of some people who had it. So, let's see. One day, people just decide to stab themselves in all those places? Inflict damage on their own body for pure pleasure? Some could, but most of us, I don't think we would. My friend is just a normal person and he did nothing to himself.
Most Stigmata's are fakes there was a thing on the same history channel you mention about stigmata and they made a guy a saint and when the took the bandages off his hands after death there were no cuts so the fakes little followers tried to cover it up by saying the healed after death.
