If you have been following the thread you will know I was actually responding to Temis the Friendly Ghost and she did say that.
The point is, this was not something claimed by the film or the writers.

"Possible" only in the sense that technically absolutely anything "might" happen (from our limited point of view), but is never-the-less so unlikely that we would normally attribute it to a deity etc, if it actually "did" happen.
No, we would normally attribute it to something called "coincidence". No deity required.

Indeed your use of italics seems to imply agreement thus rather undermining your: "nothing of the sort".
You're apparently reading too much into it.

Actually by saying something like the universe is trying to "repair itself" the writers are effectively endorsing Pantheism.
The quote I posted by Orci contains no endorsement of Pantheism. It speaks of probabilities. It's cast as science rather than religion.
