Atheism Requires Faith in Miracles

1) A miracle (from the Latin mirari, to wonder), at a first and very rough approximation, is an event that is not explicable by natural causes alone. A reported miracle excites wonder because it appears to require, as its cause, something beyond the reach of human action and natural causes. 2) David Hume (Hume 1748/2000; cf. Voltaire 1764/1901: 272) famously defined a miracle as “a violation of the laws of nature.”


Atheists disparage faith and bluntly reject the resurrection of Jesus, life from non-life is impossible. They claim it is never observed today and that miracles do not happen. They reject the entire Bible because it lists many miracles.


However, to propose their theory of how life began without God, they must contradict their position. They do this when they claim in the beginning life came from non-life by accident, luck, chance and time. This in spite of the fact that life proceeding from non-life has never been observed by scientists. Nor have the most intelligent scientists been able to create life from non-life. Therefore, their position contradicts what is observed one hundred percent of the time. What they are claiming violates nature and exceeds nature’s productive power as we know it. These events would qualify by definition as miracles.
