*Marriage partners: Some people "recognize" their future partners. It seems they meet by serendipity, luck and chance... Is it destiny for them to be together?
*Friends and relatives: Some feel they have known certain people before and tend to remain friends no matter what, i.e. they can resume their friendships/relationships no matter how much time has gone by; after loosing touch or moving away. One could say these strong connections indicate planning on the "other side."
How did you meet your husband or wife? Was it somehow magical?
As evidence I provide the contents of a 1,000 year old coffin and the urn on the mantle piece. Plus the immortal words of every priest at every burial (should be of extra value, shouldn't it?). What do you provide?
Destiny is evidence of spirit. Ashes and dust are evidence of the physical. Which would you prefer to believe in?
Don't priests mention some sort of after life? I avoid funerals. I've been to only one: My grandmother's. Open casket. I didn't intend to look, but as I walked by, I peeked at her dead body in curiosity. I saw a body without it's spirit. Where did it go? it was not there!

I have heard (two separate accounts in my own neighborhood) of husbands visiting the wives they had to leave. Both of these women reported seeing their husbands as apparitions for one last time.
Physical. There is actual evidence it is real (contents of that urn).
Destiny, on the other hand, exists only as a concept in the minds of some people, and even as a concept has no discernible connection to reality. Kind of rules out being evidence for an imagined spirit or spirit world.
Of course, if I were to play a game, a Halloween Party perhaps, it would be more fun to pretend to believe in the imaginary. It always is, for a short time - it's just that games are not very productive in the long run.
I'm reading Tania Levin's memoir about being in and out of a pentecostal megachurch (Hillsong - formed from AoG). It's a fascinating read, and I share a lot of her observations. Tania describes Hillsong as a cult...
