Wasn't there a story in the headlines awhile back that for us on the spectrum, our brains kinda short-circuit on teleological reasoning...questions like "What is the lesson in these events having happened", i.e. attributing some kind of agency to the universe/God...strike us IMMEDIATELY as absurd and we're likely to just blurt out "nothing; stuff just happens, dude!" where as NT atheists will initially get sucked in and then reason out that it's an absurd proposition.
After getting my A.S. diagnosis, I have a deeper understanding of why people prattling on with their platitudes about "everything happens for a reason" has always pissed me off so very, very much. ;-)
