Divine scribblings
SCRIPTURES, noun; The sacred books of our holy religion, as distinguished from the false and profane writings on which all other faiths are based.
—Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary
What I’m saying is, if God wanted to send us a message, and ancient writings were the only way he could think of doing it, he could have done a better job.
Carl Sagan, Contact[1]

A holy book is a text sacred to a particular religion. Alternatively, it is a book that has been eaten by worms.
