    I know this was already asked but I couldn't respond to the other thread by ufcarazy.

    I think maybe a scientific definition of a miracle is an event that seems to support religion but can't currently be tested by science. This would mean that the event ceases to be miraculous once science can explain it.


    Intelligence is fundamental to science, and independent thought.

    I think science calls them "anomalies"

    No, it would mean the event never was miraculous in the first place. I recommend the complete and utter banning of the word miracle. I propose media personalities (newsreaders in particular) be required to lash themselves with thorn-studded whips if ever caught using it.

    A miracle is something for which the rational answer has not been found yet. In science, there is no such thing as "inherently inexplicable". Every phenomenon is based on a natural cause and can be explained by ratio and reason.
