    You should really read some Hume-ian logic on miracles. It's quite ... easy.

    Please direct me to this journal article. I'd be interested in reading the position of the component.

    You may want to read her post, to wit, the word "perhaps.". For somebody so rude you really don't seem to have a clue what you are talking about.

    You prove yourself to be a philosophical dilettante since you do not know it is spelled "Humean."

    Well there had to be some motivation for the statement. If you wanna invoke science, then invoke science. Don't invoke science and say "well I don't have the science."

    Too many times I've seen someone say Humean = Human.

    Yeah, ok that's plausible enough. So would you care to elaborate on how you think Hume applies here specifically?

    The probability of miracles is basically zero and it's more likely that a person has a misapprehension than an actual suspension of natural laws (in their favor, too.)

    As if that's not enough, here's the part that just floors me....



    Seriously?

    Is it any wonder that those of us who don't believe will find stuff like this pointing towards the edges of insanity????
    Finally, a Native American.

    That boy recovery thing is just the usual propaganda.

    The fact, of course, is that you aren't interested at all in what I wrote, only in trying to seize an opportunity. All you had to do was go to Google and type in "divine spark."
