Atheist Twilight Zone Phenomenon (tell me I'm not the only one)

Recently...  Well not exactly recently.  For quite a while now I have this odd experience from time to time.  I just came across this site today and it seemed like the best place to ask.  It's not the kind of thing that's easy to google.  I call it the Twilight Zone Phenomenon due to it's resemblance to an episode of the aforementioned show.
