How do you do you qualify an event as supernatural?
What factors does an event need for you to consider it supernatural?
It depends on your point of view...what is natural phenomenon for one person may not necessarily be for another..so supernatural is relative.
How do you - msorensson - define supernatural? This is asking for your opinion, not a finite definition. Thanks!
Hi, breathe2travel...I only wanted you to know that I am not ignoring your question, except at this very moment, I cannot define it nor have an opinion about it..for you, I even asked one of my friends ..but no answer from her either..
I agree with msorensson, at the same time I will consider an event as supernatural when it is beyond the ability or reasoning of men. Something that takes a super power than ordinary to accomplish or manifest.
Supernatural events are those that happen beyond my ability to make them happen.
I understand supernatural to mean something that cannot possibly happen within the laws of our universe. I think that is the most common definition and it makes sense to me.
A supernatural event is when man has no control over it beyond any means. It happens because it happens and I believe in the supernatural happenings, though I have not really seen or encountered one that would shock my senses, affect doubts from other people's point of view, or in effect give astonishing answers to supernatural occurrences questioned by many. It doesn't need intervention or experience to make one believe. It is certainly an opinion of any individual.
Spiritually, scientifically, mysteriously, the supernatural phenomenon do stir our minds, unfolds our deep thoughts, carry-on in our faiths, modify doubts, illuminate interests, or simply demonstrate no belief in it.
I define it as an event that breaks the laws of nature. A body that does not corrupt after 200 years without embalming and under conditions that normally would decay a body is an example of breaking the laws of nature. A person presenting himself in two places at the same time as witnessed by unbiased people is a supernatural event. Raising a dead person who has been proclaimed dead for over three hours ready for the morgue without intervention of drugs, electricity or external stimulus is pretty supernatural. All these have happened, have been documented and witnessed by unbiased people.
And all these supernatural events happen so we can believe in God Who has everything under control - even the laws of nature which He made and can break if He so wishes.
For me supernatural is when there is no scientific or logical explanation for the occurance.
I will classify an event as supernatural if it is inexplicable and has manifested abilities that ordinary humans cannot equip.

Spefically, does God know all the details of the future? Could He, if He wished, write a book detailing every action of my unborn child from conception to final judgement? The implications for free will seem enormous.

I suppose it was an inevitable reaction to Stephen Hawking’s new Book ‘The Grand Design’ where he concluded that There is no place for God in theories on the creation of the Universe.To me, it is equally inevitable that the media would immediately zero in on this concluding fact rather than...
