Do you command miracles?

Webster defines a miracle as: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.

Divine intervention means something happened which would be otherwise highly improbable, if not impossible, to explain according to the laws of nature and human capabilities.

Certainly we refer to the suspension of the laws of physics as a miracle. Unrepeatable and unforeseeable, these events leave us with the mystifying awareness that there is more to this universe than what we can prove through science.

Does divine intervention actually intercede on our behalf? I say “YES!” and furthermore I believe we can command miracles.

What do you think? Do you have any extraordinary miracle stories?

    Jean,

    I have been reading the articles on your blog and finding many of the topics fascinating. This article is short but it packs in some very interesting ideas.

    I am in the process of writing a book that has a major theme that concerns events that are not currently explained by established scientific theories. The book has no title as yet, but I have placed several articles on my blog that are summaries of the core items of what will be the first few chapters of this book. I don’t call these events miracles, but they seem to fit in the description of how you define miracles, above.

    In your article, there seems to be two major issues. One is the word “divine” in the dictionary definition of miracles. I think this alludes to the common idea that God is the sponsor of miracles. This is a huge topic in itself, but I want to focus here on what I see as the second major issue: the idea that miracles are events for which there are no reasonable explanations from how we know the world usually works. In the work of writing my book, I have come to some surprising conclusions based on my careful study of the research into what scientists call anomalies (since they violate widely accepted scientific theories).

    Of course, scientists have carefully worked out the rules and “laws” of how the physical world behaves. As you point out in your article, these laws have been found to be reliably repeatable and foreseeable in their actions. But, incredibly, the anomalies in many scientific fields are also found to repeatedly violate these “laws,” when carefully studied. There is much more going on in the universe than is captured in our current laws of physics. One of the most surprising conclusions is that the methods of science can be used to prove beyond doubt that there are influences that originate outside the measurable, physical events of the universe which always play a crucial role in the outcomes of these events.

    Another surprising conclusion from this research is that the human mind taps into these influences in every moment of our lives. We are much more powerful than we have ever dared to imagine.

    I am really enjoying your articles, and I really enjoyed your book. Nice work!
