I've often wondered what is the converse of a "miracle" each time I see this term used in the media -- a "smiting", perhaps? Whatever the word, it would refer to some random act of cruelty to a completely undeserving person by a thoroughly uncaring or bloody-minded deity. Plenty of examples in the cancer wards, but the one that always comes to mind for me is the musician who was driving down a country lane and was struck and killed by a loose haybale that rolled down a hillside and hit his car. No doubt the religiously-minded would call it bad luck and leave it at that, but I feel that God has to take ownership of the all the bad stuff too.
