    The problem with any event lies in its interpretation. If you believe in G_d, you believe the event has some meaning, like a messsage. The problem with superstittion is that it does not invite deliberation, as (say) the Oracle at Delphi would have said. That is, only after an event do we begin to ascribe meaning to it, because it happened thus and not otherwise.

    My own feeling is that meaning is better left open, so that it does not foreclose alternative assignments, some one or more of which may eventually appear to be true — but in the interim, and ever after, we are free to debate which meaning best fits our understanding.
