Debunking Miracles

By: Monique Zorzella

In the face of contemporary knowledge, it is said by many skeptics that no reasonable person can believe in the supernatural. As the world finds ways to naturally explain the things that were once an elusive mystery attributed to the divine, the believer finds it increasingly difficult to have faith in the things which are scientifically incomprehensible. Among the most contentious beliefs are divine miracles. Many are mocked for what nonbelievers deem as fanciful speculation of the things not yet known. Unbelievers argue that there is no scientific evidence for miracles so it is safe to assume that they probably do not occur. Additionally, skeptics argue that the lack of evidence for miracles invalidates the existence of God. Closer examination of the reasons they offer in favor of their position reveals that their view fails to be convincing.
