At this point in this year's presidential election, I, an avowed agnostic, and practicing spiritual mysticism skeptic, DO believe in miracles. I BELIEVE ! Every day I see miracles in action. Every time I hear or see that a person is going to vote for Willard, the mormon cultist, Romney, I am witnessing a miracle. It's a miracle anyone that dumb that can inhale and exhale oxygen. Teapublicons should be singing the praises of evolution for evolving breathing as a rhythmic, involuntary process regulated by respiratory centers.

I'M BELIEVING FOR A MIRACLE ON NOV. 6TH. YES MIRACLES DO HAPPEN ,

For one thing Jesus wrote in his own hand that he does not have to be worshiped under anything made of wood or stone,meaning churches and this was written in the dead sea scrolls. The churches really don't want you people to actually believe this because the CHURCH BUSINESS is about collecting big money from you people. God wants you to share your thoughts and your love with him everyday, he likes you to talk to him, ask his advice, tell him Thank you Lord and he understands we have are bad days and he also knows we are not perfect. But you can worship God right from your home and through out your day at work school, at the store he just wants you to talk with him. Going to Church is not going to get you to the pearly gates, its how you live your life and if you try to be the best person you can be.

If a miracle is from god then why does he pick and choose who to save? He is not meant to interfere with humans yet he has free will to save everyone if he is so powerful, but doesn't.
06:52 PM on 11/01/2012
you said it ...free will..WE have free will..He doesn't pick and choose because he picked and chose EVERYONE.. it is WE-- with our God given free will-- who chose to pick and chose GOD.

He has free will too, god's will. If you could stop a disaster you would and if you had all the power to do it you would. If you didn't, you'd be criticised.

I don't really want it personally, i'd wish for him to stop me doing the things i did.

he doesn't pick and choose. although the thought is kind of humorous. people have a purpose, some are here longer than others. some are meant to experience things we cannot explain, and this includes loss of loved ones. what would be the point of saving man from himself? it has to come from within and thousands of years later, man hasn't changed.

Maybe if there wasn't a reason to be saved in the first place...See, god expects too much from his falible ceation.

Another thing..And i've said it many times but my time here is soon to be limited (i need to stop coming here so often) so i'll say it again..There is no justification for sending non believers to hell just for not believing..I don't care about me as i've said many times,But people who don't deserve hell just for not believing...That is not a loving god.

You tell us. What's it like walking around without a brain?
09:05 PM on 11/01/2012
Jesus bore every sickness and every disease. Every single one. Even missing limbs. Mat 17 and Mark 9 tell a story about how the disciples could not heal some guy. They asked Jesus why. Jesus said it was because of their own unbelief. He then said prayer and fasting would deal with this unbelief so nothing would be impossible. It is us who dont believe that stops the halt and maimed from receiving what Jesus paid for. But thank God he sent the Holy Spirit to teach us how to deal with subtle forms of unbelief so we can pray for people and watch them get healed.

As more and more human's reject the dogma of organized religion this does not destroy but enhances that spiritual specialness that exists in all of us.

You're absolutely RIGHT.

It's a miracle that ANYBODY actually believes anything that Romney says and would actually vote for him. Fortunately, come next Tuesday, those votes will be just enough to send him back to the Cayman Islands to count his cash. I truly hope he enjoys it and that he fades into obscurity like Samuel Tilden, Alton Parker and James Cox.

Nowhere does this article present a definition of what constitutes a miracle, other than some reference to other theologians. To some people a miracle is an absolute contradiction of scientific laws, while to others a miracle may be the occurence of something that is just highly unlikely.
A person walking through a stone wall would obviously be a miracle, whether one believes it could happen or not. But a child recovering from a tumor that doctors agreed would be fatal...not so certain.

I would define a miracle as something that cannot be explained by science.

Then miracles can only be things for which science does not currently have explanations for. Things like penicillin would have been miracles centuries ago, before we understood them.

The reality of earth is a miracle, the reality of birth is a miracle, awareness is a miracle, and miracles are simply things we are yet to understand.

Life itself is a miracle. What I have found most interesting in my life is that there are two groups of true believers that do not search outside their established beliefs: the religious and those in science.

Once we accept a certain set of beliefs as facts or truths it is pretty much over for any new discoveries to come into our consciousness.

If anyone wants to see a miracle look into the mirror, the miracle you see is you.

Most miracles are simply a failure to understand the relationship of the “spiritual” realm and the physical realm of existence.

To better understand that relationship search neither religion nor science as both have beliefs and agendas to defend at almost all costs.

The difference is that everything we have learned about how our world works and the nature of reality have come from the scientific method. Sure, it has yet to explain everything, but so what?

Religion has been shown countless times that it is incorrect about the nature of our world.

One of these systems of belief has rational justification. One does not.

why does it bother you so much? religion goes hand in hand with faith. it doesn't have to explain science it can ride tandem.

"Overall, some four in five Americans believe miracles definitely or probably occur..."

That such a high proportion, 80%, of Americans believe such superstitious nonsense is not unusual, when you consider how many Americans regard Fox "News" and its luminaries like Hannity and O'Reilly to be credible sources of information.

People confuse the unlikely with miracle. You must remember the universe may be infinitely large and is 13.7 billion years old. Unlikely events happen all the time, but they are not miracles.
