Quote by Terry Pratchett

God moves in extremely mysterious, not to say, circuitous ways. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, ie., everybody, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

This quote by Terry Pratchett highlights the enigmatic nature of divine intervention. It suggests that God's ways are beyond human comprehension and that the universe is not subject to random chance but guided by a mysterious plan. The analogy of playing an obscure and complex form of poker in a dark room with no knowledge of the rules or stakes serves to emphasize the confusion and uncertainty that humans experience in trying to understand God's actions. Despite the lack of clarity, there is a sense of eternal optimism conveyed through the Dealer's constant smile.
