"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
- Albert Einstein
Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe that God supernaturally intervenes into our lives and our world?
Einstein seemed to have thought that typical religous coneptions of the miraculous would hinder from recognizing the truly miraculous, which is all around us.
Another perspective on this comes from Michael Spencer who blogs over at iMonk. He wrote a post about a conversation he had with a friend about signs and wonders.
"I believe that religion, as a human phenomenon and by its very nature, creates a world where people believe that things happen that haven't happened. The line between fact and reality goes very thin and takes a good bit of the week off."
While Spencer us probably correct, I don't know if that is such a bad thing. What's wrong with living with a perspective that anything can happen, even if it is not true?
What do you think?
