It mus be because there are many who have said they have seen miracles.<quoted text>
No, I didn't. But of course, that is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?
But, my hero, Francis Collins wrote or spoke of this;
***Collins has described his parents as "only nominally Christian" and by graduate school he considered himself an atheist. However, dealing with dying patients led him to question his religious views, and he investigated various faiths. He familiarized himself with the evidence for and against God in cosmology, and used Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis as a foundation to re-examine his religious view. He eventually came to a conclusion, and became an Evangelical Christian during a hike on a fall afternoon. He has described himself as a "serious Christian"
Francis Collins must have seen much to make him change his mind so drastically; but perhaps it is how we perceive things as individuals that directs our futures :)
