Is there any act of God that can't be explained away?

Postby Koog » Thu Aug 15, 2019 4:15 pm

Is there any act of God (after there were more than couple of humans on earth) or Jesus, that cannot be explained by apophenia, schizophrenia or exaggerated storytelling and could not be performed by an adept magician?

Sure, as long as you realize that anyone can make up supposed explanations that don't really fit the situation (meaning that you could cavalierly say ANY of it was exaggerated storytelling, but with no evidence to support that conclusion). In other words, I guess you yourself would have to be careful not to be both prejudicial and biased in a priori conclusions, assuming the negative.

  • Creation
  • Healing of a blind person (doctors today are still unable to do that), especially one born blind.
  • Raising the dead
  • Virgin birth
  • One might even say that the preservation of Israel as a people and as a nation is quite unique. No other ancient Near Eastern people group survived antiquity, having been conquered, deprived of a land to call their own, with no central government or cultural forces keeping them together.
  • Healing a man lame for 38 years, where there was instantaneous walking despite muscular atrophy.

There are others, but this should be enough to prompt a response. Let's talk.
