You know, stealing is just rude. I'd like to start by saying that. Some people say intelligence borrows and genius steals. I don't know if that's true. It's more like, intelligence is alright with me, and genius is a plain old douche bag...one for being proclaimed (or self proclaimed) genius, and two, for f*&*ing stealing.
Stealing? It makes a person want to say: "Dude get your hands off my stuff."
So my point is this. I told someone the other day: "knowing you is a miracle" to be translated as "You are awesome" and they couldn't appreciate it fully for it's implications. It's DIVINE implications. Well thanks a lot God! And it is here that I have a problem.
Miracle - the latin route means literally "something wonderful"
WHERE does that say anything about God? So what, now everything that's a miracle has to somehow involve god? I mean c'mon, isn't that a little greedy?
Take this example:
Great! You just survived a bout of really bad acne through your teenage years?! It's a miracle! But God had to stick a greedy little acne free nose in there and say - well, technically I helped (and a little trademark symbol rears its ugly head - a zit hanging off the unsuspecting tip of poor Miracle). So somewhere along the line someone at the dictionary had their back turned and Miracle got swiped (and zitted with divine COPYright?!!).
Well I've got news. Me and my kind are taking miracles back! I shake my fist at that holier than thou! Miracles are just wonderful things.
The Grinch stole Christmas? Well God stole the miracle. Who's right? Who's wrong? Who's just a douche bag? You decide.
