HG: "Yes. Science can. You put them somewhere and forgot where."

Science still has no idea exactly how synapses and the brain works.

So what caused me to forget? What caused me to misplace them in the first place? Not even a PhD. neurologist can really explain that with any degree of certainty.

"He chose for me not to believe in absurd things without quantifiable indisputable proof."

You have no "quantifiable indisputable proof" that God doesn't exist. Even science has acknowledged that man`s nature is to have some kind of "faith", and that it is advantageous for societies to have a common faith.

I didn't win a lottery.

@HolyGod: Well, you won the "genetic lottery" eh? And the "Born In The USA" lottery.
You`re not disease stricken.
You`re not in the 3rd world.
Pretty lucky! All in all.
(I know! You mean "win the lottery for money" I get that. I`m just saying there`s other "lotteries" you`ve sort-of "won".)

[quote]I was asking how @crakr *knew* it was a miracle[/quote]
@patchy: Well, yeah, I have no idea on that!
Other than: "Faith" eh?
I was just offering a "general purpose guide" to such things. "Miracle" implies something "good" yes? Which (I think) is not how "God operates", just how we view things.

God "allows" things to happen, both good and bad. It`s just how He rolls.

"God didn't chose for you, to be an atheist"

According to you god did choose for me to be rational and intelligent. He chose for me to have common sense. He chose for me not to believe in absurd things without quantifiable indisputable proof. So I would argue he DID choose for me to be an atheist.

"And science can't explain it either."

SCIENCE CAN`T EXPLAIN HOW YOU LOST YOUR CAR KEYS?

Yes. Science can. You put them somewhere and forgot where.

TA DA!

What science can`t explain is how you could actually be dumb enough to say that.

patch: "He should be able to tell me how you can specifically differentiate one from a coincidence.."

Even the Catholic church has completely defined what a "miracle" is and they are all about solid definitions of what is good and bad.

But if you want the dictionary version: "a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency."

Was it "natural" for me to loose my keys? No. And science can't explain it either. Now initially it wasn`t a "welcome" event, but it was later in my car.

I would add, to that definition, that miracles usually have a lesson involved, something that has a positive impact on your attitude about life and God.
