Months have passed with no word of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370, the Boeing 777 that took off from Kuala Lumpur on 27 March 2014 with hundreds of passengers aboard and disappeared, presumably into the vastness of the Indian Ocean. Intensive searches have failed to reveal the slightest trace of the plane and its passengers, yet it was recently announced that Australia will continue searching. Modern man believes he knows all the answers, that quantum physics is locked in with consciousness, that the universe is decipherable. But the face of God cannot be painted in a brush stroke. Perhaps some things are unknowable, and perhaps some things known by our fathers were not so wrong. And so it might be with the mystery of MH370.
The scientists preen for they’ve answered it all
The engineers shout out their worth
But maybe the ancients were right, you’ll recall
And they fell off the edge of the Earth
