What are miracles? I am informed by my Christian neighbours that miracles are a routine occurence in the Christian churches they attend. But when I asked her how she knew these were directly God's interventions her was very inarticulate and that she just had to believe that it was God's work, and that God works in mysterious ways. I told her of the incident reported in the link http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,241297,00.html. and warned her about claims for miracles that are not attested to by objectiive scientific means. So What really are miracles? Are they a material change in contravention of nature or are they spiritual change?
