Completely irrelevant.

We know humans are capable of random thoughts.
Isn't evidence for prophetic powers though,

I believe this is a strawman, never claimed prophetic powers. Please show me where I did that?

See my other response to you.

And again, until you do, you have no rational basis to assume predictive powers.

It is not about me, it is about human beings, I am making a hypothesis that can be tested and checked out that perhaps human beings can pick up scents of others(or not picking up others scents) unconsciously and realize the possibility of someone approaching or not.

That's not the same as actually predicting anything though.

So, you are the one who used the term "prophetic powers". Even when I claimed a natural hypothesis. So, you did use straw man argument. Else it is on you to show that what I meant could have meant only and only "prophetic powers".
