And a Happy Holiday (sorry, Fox) to All

Festivus Philosophicus

My grievances are two.
The first is centered on
the scientific mindset,
certain that the world
is subject to some set
of laws, some secret hidden
book of undiscovered
articles and sections,
no uncertain terms,
conditions soon to be
announced in peer-reviewed
and well-respected journals.
Second is religion
and its co-dependent,
atheism. Both
are quick to answer questions
from mysterious
interrogators by
the book, no questions asked.
But you don’t have to be
an Einstein just to see
it’s either miracles
or not. (Although there’s some
who are religious who
will call a miracle
a legal miracle
if they’re the ones deciding.)
I'll behold the former.

grievances; Balloon Juice:
The Holiday for the Rest of Us: "The Airing of Grievances is the traditional time of the year when families gather together and tell one another how they have disappointed them in the past year. Thus begins my disappointments:"

Einstein; I read Einstein's quote in one of the blogs I looked at today, but can't locate it now: "There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
