I have had this debate for years with people, including my own mother and to no avail. Are there certain laws of nature at play in things that happen, sure, but that is something else all together.

In every situation, you can find a light bulb moment, where you come to some realization. I can accept that, but to say that the "powers that be" tortured your child so you could learn something, or have a moment of enlightenment, well, that kind of God, keep him.
