I think that depends on your definition of "miracle". I've always considered a miracle to be something that cannot happen within the physical laws of our universe; they must be of supernatural origin.
Whether or not science can explain them is immaterial; science does not know everything. It would be like calling a TV a miracle because we don't understand what's inside or how it works.
For instance, if one is cured of cancer it isn't a miracle simply because the doctor doesn't know exactly what happened or why - these things happen and there is no indication that the cure was supernatural or against physical or biological laws.
On the other hand if one walks on water it is either a fraud or a miracle; that does violate natural law (or is something cute, like walking on frozen water).
Saying one believes in miracles merely shows one has very little understanding of how the world around them works and is mired in superstitious thinking. Surely science can explain most nything given time and evidence.
Thank you for thinking of me, Shanna. Someone spun the Wheel of Fortune, threw a dart at it and it landed on my userid, so I got banned, no rhyme or reason whatsoever. It's the way things are "handled" around here.
Miracles happen everyday. Not like in the movies with the skies seperating and thunder and lightning, more subtle than that. Miracle #1 I'm alive #2 My marriage of 24 years #3 I haven't killed my husband! Seriously though they happen so start looking for them!
Actually we were both wrong unless we are talking about sexual LOVE which is really infatuation or Lust. which is the potting soil from which Love grows.
And then there are other kinds of love which have little to do with Hormones, testasterone and fermones. Any of these kinds of love, at some moment in time, require choice, whether we are aware of exactly when that moment happened or not.
I'm not trying to argue for or against miracles- but this whole story just seems to go against the laws of the universe... the baby was premature to begin with, and it spent 12 hours without any type of care in frigid conditions... I'm mostly just sharing it because it's actually just a very nice story.
I'm actually a nurse and I have seen miracles. I believe in God so for me those accurances are miracles. For others its a coincidence or something that was going to happen anyway and thats fine too:) I just like to think that I live in a world where theres somebody out there watching out for me:)
Ancient miracles, such as those mentioned in the Bible, often are stories told by people who did not witnessed the event in the first place. The books written by John, Luke, and Matthew for example were written decades after the death of Jesus. What people call miracles are stories usually started from somebody who heard it from somebody else, who heard it from somebody else. Consequently, the story eventually becomes garbled. The story that people call a miracle is often a rumor that began so long ago and over time become so distorted that the story does not resemble the actual event or if the event ever really took place at all. Present day miracles can easily be explained by science and other sources of information. Sometimes, people simply use the word because they do not understand what they just witnessed.
Why, was the evidence presented by the real world not enough? Did someone ram it down your throat until you surrendered your scruples? If you are going to believe that something exists, despite a a lack of evidence, maybe one should consider the source of the decision. If you were coersed and presented such a choice, how do you know (if only by the word of others) that your god is a reality?
Unlike the song with the same title, my question is not a rhetorical one.If we are to believe the naturalist's view, then miracles are absolutely non-existent, because from their philosophical perspective,...
