  1. How many times must man experience a wild idea become a hypothesis, then a theory, then an accepted law of science before we realize that literally nothing is impossible? Never say something is or is not a miracle. Be 100% open minded; truly open minded. It is possible that God created us. It is possible that God did not create us.

  2. Here is a possible reason why people don't want to tell others about their religious experience: it's like a magician's trick – if it gets explained, the experience is ruined.

  3. Atheist angels to the rescue….. Badabing. Hint: after one watches the magic poindexters put light and sound speeds on dimmer switches, and then watches and listens to sound and light reverse relative speeds, the “do you believe in miracles?” jocularity gets tiresome. I spend my days talking to ghosts and angels because they know more than the people in my presence. And the ones I talk to speak in structured sequence to whatever is going on. Part of what Carl Jung called “synchronicity”. The world is a giant interactive Macintosh. Get used to it. Or figure it out, then talk. A little refresher in Shinto might help.

  4. Miracles are nonsense. They mean literally that something happens that could not happen according to natural laws. Since nothing happens that breaks natural laws, miracles are a none-topic. It's irrational to believe in miracles. People just love made up stories that gives meaningless things a "higher" meaning. People like word games and sometimes make the error to believe the sometimes amusing shit they came up with.
