Put passionate believers in miracles in the same room as skeptics and you get a better understanding of how people think differently but no agreement! Scientists would say that “miracles” are either misreported events or something that has an explanation which we do not yet have. The BBC has a program “The Big Questions” and on Jan 3, 2010 they asked the question “Do Miracles happen?” There were two specific examples of miracles given but of course even if you believe they were really miracles, it still leaves the question – why only these and not the millions of other possibilities? And why no “Big miracles” that would convince even the skeptics?
A couple of people on the show did point out that although the individuals did passionately believe in their miracles – that they were not in fact miracles but simply unexplained. Perhaps they were an unusual recovery that Doctors did not expect and maybe could not explain. But if you are a “believer”, an easier explanation is that they were miracles.
If you like a lively debate and like to see both sides of an argument, watch this one. Each part is about 8-9 minutes.
