I suppose that's coincidence,
Precisely. Our human ability to perceive patterns, to think rapidly about what they might mean, goes right back to species survival. To be able to perceive or detect what might be a danger, or a predator and to take prompt action was essential to the survival of all species of mammals (and everything else that has not become extinct) and although we do not perhaps need to be constantly on the alert for predators nowadays, the instinct remains a powerful one and must remain so.

Remember, the brain is the most complex and amazing natural computer in the world, and probably in the universe too, and has no need of spirit voices etc. It can make up an infinite number of them and listen to itself thinking it is hearing anything!

Remember too that all gods/spirits/etc have always used a human to voice themselves. funny that, don't you think?!! There have always been enough people to believe those who say that such-and-such God says this, wants that, or commands something else. Nowadays, fortunately, the number of people who realise this is not so is increasing at a faster rate.
