It’s all about which perspective you view it from . . The sinking of the Titanic was a miracle to the lobsters in the ship’s kitchen.

    Terry Prachett sums it up like this: Whatever happens, they say afterwards, it must have been fate. People are always a little confused about this, as they are in the case of miracles. When someone is saved from certain death by a strange concatenation of circumstances, they say that’s a miracle. But of course if someone is killedby a freak chain of events — the oil spilled just there, the safety fence broken just there — that must also be a miracle. Just because it’s not nice doesn’t mean it’s not miraculous.

    That’s funny, but untrue. The lobsters faith was more like that of the atheists, their short lives were destined to fulfill their purpose, instead they ended up dumped in a kilometer deep ocean, where lobsters can’t survive. Lobsters live in the ocean shelves, been cast into the deep, only hastened their demise.

    Coincidence is not a miracle and Tge church never claim coincidence to be a miracle.

    Somebody probably won the lottery last night which is a strange coincidence of a combination of numbers coming up.

    What the church accept as a miracle is a completely inexplicable and permanent, and swift healing or recovery.

    The church are very very stringent on this and are very very slow to sanction miracles.

    If you believe in miracles you clearly believe in
    sky fairies/ Religion. It surprises me, that in 2016 so many logical people believe in the supernatural and unproven science. The same people will bring their dying friend to Lourdes or that other circus act in Medjugorje and spend their last cent in the hope these commercialised con centres will cure them. Millions of people go to these places every year and nobody has saw a miracle. Yes out of the millions of visitors there has been one or two unexplained recoveries but unexplained remission is quite natural as the human body is capable on rare occasions of self curing. To suggest a Magical entity is involved is shows a lack of understanding of the laws of probability and stupidity.

    @ Pat Conway Well Pat, that is the big question. Your statement of faith, is neither backed by revelation nor science. What I’d say to all atheists is, be seekers of the truth. Christianity says if you seek the truth, you’ll find it. I do believe some non Christians will make their way to heaven, and indeed many so called Christians will fall short. We can both agree on one thing, there are no atheists in heaven or in hell, at that stage all will know the truth.

    pat and paddy. we did seek the truth, and regularly challenge ourselves, and guess what… there is no god, no miracles, no afterlife, no spirit world. we’ve also discovered why people believe in these things, why and where they started and where they are going. and do you know the biggest thing we’ve discovered – it’s not too stop at the first vague, unprovable answer to questions. that’s how you find out the real truth.

    I know a well respected consultant who works in my local general hospital who has encountered two events which he cannot provide an answer to, and one was an overnight occurrence involving a large tumour disappearing. Now he does not say its a miracle – but he has no explanation for it – and he’s a mass on Sunday type of fellow. Do do do do – do do do do – do do do do.

    I don’t believe in miracles but i don’t know everything in this world – only the most idiotic of people could be absolut about any thing. Even the biggest lie contains some truth, We came from the earth and we’ll go back to the earth, everything around us has a common thread which binds us together – from the soil to the walls to the things we consume are all provided for by the sun, earth and in nature. If this is true and its true that the universe is large beyond our comprehension – i’m open to have a miracle proven to me.

    “We can both agree on one thing, there are no atheists in heaven or in hell, at that stage all will know the truth.”

    Well of course “there are no atheists in heaven or in hell” such places don’t exist. Again Paddy you have to sort this mixing “faith” up with “fact” out, they are not the same thing!

    If you do not accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour and Lord you will not go to heaven.
    Late repentance is seldom true but true repentance is never too late.

    Oh If I’m wrong and there is a God, if it gives a shit, and even accepts idiots like you I’d prefer to refuse entry to “heaven” -up to resource wars, how many people were killed in wars over religion- more than nationalism that’s for sure. If you are Catholic I’m sure you know the Lords prayer. Read it, and other than an obsession about trespass it says make your heaven on earth. Perhaps that’s beyond your obvious lack of education and history of religion.

    There is no proof that God does not exist. And before people say why do bad things happen? Well God is the creator, the rest is up to us. I for love God.
