I don't believe in miracles and all instances of the Laws of Nature being broken needs to be rigorously investigated and the perpetrator(s) brought to justice asap.

I don't believe in miracles but I do believe in the Law of Large Numbers. Someone has to win the lottery...... Although if it was me that'd be a miracle! I wouldn't consider it a miracle if I won and had actually made the effort and bought a lotto ticket.

Good article though. If the definition of a miracle wasn’t “a violation of the laws of nature..etc” and didn’t include the reference to a Deity I might have been less in the Dawkins camp.

Laws of nature can’t be violated, if they are then we don’t understand them or don’t have all the facts.

I always liked Richard Feynman's opinion of philosophers:

Those guys are really inane.
I'm sure this article wouldn't have changed his mind.
