Why don’t miracles happen any more?
Because we don’t need them.
Because we’re too smart for them.
We think we’re better than primitive people
who believed in spirits and unseen forces.
Because we have explanations now, and AI,
and there’s nothing we can’t do
so who needs miracles,
or one who performs them?
Anyway, if we really wanted miracles
how could we possibly go back now,
unlearn all we know,
unbelieve all our powers?
Our openness is too primitive,
our humility undeveloped.
We’d have to practice.
We’d have to live in wonder.
We’d have to pay attention.
