Reality does not "conspire" against anything, any more than a deep, swift river would "conspire" against a migrating herd of gnus.
There's a currently popular saying
"It is what it is."
And if someone has an ultra-religious belief in the God known as Poseidon, the reality of tidal movement MAY be perceived ( BY THEM!) as "proof" of the POWER of Poseidon.
Because, admit it: No OTHER Gods or Goddesses will be able to protect the life of a believer in THOSE Gods and Goddesses, if they dare to anchor themselves to the sea floor at LOW tide, and trust that their God or Goddess will keep them alive, as the Power of Poseidon brings in the HIGH tide.
