I wanted to ask this question of atheists, but it is open to everyone.
As an atheist (or insert your belief here) do you believe in miracles? Obviously you don't believe in God supernaturally interceding. So do you believe they are things that happen as a result of mental powers? Or do you think they are just misunderstood commonplace events.
I was reading some things by Richard Dawkins, and one thing he said was that we need to renounce a belief in the miraculous. He went on to say "The Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, the raising of Lazarus, even the Old Testament miracles, all are freely used for religious propaganda, and they are very effective with an audience of unsophisticates and children. Every one of these miracles amounts to a violation of the normal running of the natural world."
I am not saying we should believe all miracles, but do believe they are possible? And if the natural laws can bend, why?
