Do you believe that miracles occur? Happy coincidence or act of God?

I do believe that miracles occur. It is possible that it is God.

  • I believe in miracles, but I don't believe every happy coincidence is a miracle. I believe God can and does intrvene, but not always or even often, at least not in the way we would like to see.

  • Define "miracle" and NO I don't believe they are acts of "god" since "god" is nothing more than a man-made ideology that has evolved into a tool to control the masses, weilded almost entirely by hypocrites or "pharisees".

  • happy coincidences. for every 1% who beats a terminal disease, 99% doesnt. thats not a miracle, its probability.

  • No. Sometimes good things happen. Sometimes bad things happen.

  • I believe in miracles but I don't believe that there is some "god" doing all the work.

  • IMO those who believe in miracles are afraid of coincidence. I mean what better way to stroke your ego than to think a god chose to do something special for you.

  • Miracle:  A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is considered to be divine.


    No.  I do not believe that miracles happen, even though many people do like to believe in them - they make people feel "special", like their god has paid special attention to them and granted them favors that no one else gets to enjoy.  However, by definition, I do not believe in miracles.  I think everything can be explained by natural or scientific laws. And, as okmanders pointed out, the laws of probability play a hand in what appear to be miracles - there may be just the tiniest chance of a certain, hoped-for outcome, but the chance is still there.  No miracles.
