Respond Podcast Episode 9 - “Are Miracles Possible?”

Clips by Craig S. Keener :
The Plausibility of Miracles in a Materialistic Age,

1 – People may reject miracle claims – “Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence”

But surely all we need is sufficient evidence? Evidence that is sufficient to show that a natural explanation does not account for the event in question?

2 – David Hume said because miracles violate natural law we must reject miracles

But natural law doesn’t prescribe what MUST happen, it only observes what we have observed USUALLY happens.

3 – David Hume said we have not ever seen a miracle so miracles do not occur

But this argument is circular and so is invalid.

4 – God might do miracles to get people’s attention.

But it’s the Christian gospel message that saves people, not the miracles.

5 – Some Documented Miracle Accounts
