Is it miracle if one survives an act of God?

No its because of the grace of God that one survives an act of God. Logical.

So since hurricanes and floods are now being ascribed to global warming, does that mean that they are no longer "acts of god"? Will insurance contracts now refer to "acts of the internal combustion engine and the coal-fired power station". Doesn't really have the same ring to it.


Julian is raising a valid point here. If disasters are caused by human action, they no longer comply with the legal definition of "acts of God", irrespective of how misguided the terminology is in the first place. If one could successfully prove that damage resulted from global warming and that global warming is the result of human activity, your claim could be valid, even if the insurance policy precludes "acts of God".
