Miracles do happen, but they are extremely rare. There have been a few situations where so-called miraculous occurrences have been shown to be true. However, because these events are so unusual, they cause great wonder and excitement - which can lead people to believe in such things too easily.
The most well known case of a miracle is that of Jesus Christ. His resurrection has been proven through many scientific discoveries since his death, yet this hasn't stopped people from believing in his return.
There have also been cases of people who have been diagnosed with cancer who have gone on to live healthy lives after being treated with new drugs or procedures. This has caused many people to think that there is no need for a treatment plan for cancer any more. But cancer is still a very serious disease and should be taken seriously. It isn't safe to assume that just because it has not killed you yet, it won't be able to!
So yes, miracles do happen, but only rarely. They remain unique events that cannot be explained by science and so we must always keep an open mind when they occur.
Yes, the answer to my initial inquiry is yes. Every day, all day long, miracles occur. Because life is full of secrets all around us: a glass of water, a beam of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughing, rains. It is simple to discover marvels around if you live in awareness. Miracles are waiting for us to see them.

You might be surprised. According to a new nationwide study of 1,005 physicians, 75% believe that miracles may happen these days. This is an increase from two years earlier, when 70% of doctors polled stated they believed in miracles. But it's down from 2004, when 80% of doctors surveyed said they believed in miracles.
The study was conducted by the nonprofit Center for Medicine, Health, and Miracle at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., and published in the April issue of the journal Medical History. It found that more than 90% of doctors throughout history have believed in miracles, even if they weren't able to witness one themselves.
"Doctors have always been skeptical about miracles," says center director Andy Brooks. "They are trained not to expect them or pretend that they have happened."
But while most doctors agree that miracles have occurred in the past and will continue to do so in the future, many now worry that this belief is disappearing from today's population of medical professionals.
There are several reasons why doctors might believe in miracles less today than they did 20 years ago or more recently. The first is that we live in a more scientific era where natural explanations are usually preferred over supernatural ones. However, doctors who took part in the survey say this isn't the case with them, personally or within their practices.
Yes, miracles are theoretically feasible insofar as they are framed as actions by a free agent by a person with a capacity set that transcends human people' existing skill set. A miracle is thus any non-natural event that happens without being caused by natural factors.
Miracles can happen in two ways: randomly or unexpectedly. Random miracles are events that cannot be predicted by applying laws of nature. They may result from chance combinations of many small factors that only increase the likelihood of the random outcome happening.
Unexpected miracles occur when there is no apparent cause for why and how something could have happened naturally. For example, someone falls off a building and survives. There was no sign of negligence or wrongdoing on his part, so it must be a miracle. Or an earthquake destroys a town but everyone escapes unharmed. Again, there seems to be no reason why this should have happened, so it must be a miracle.
Both random and unexpected miracles require the involvement of another powerful entity beyond what we normally expect to be responsible for natural events. This means that they cannot happen alone. They need something more than just nature or science alone. Someone has to bring about these events, either directly or indirectly through their actions.
On May 7, 2000, I gave a discussion at a church educational system fireside in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Every day, miracles occur in the church's work and in the lives of its people. Some call these events "signs," but they are not signs that someone wants us to do something or that something will happen. They are simply miracles - events that appear to be beyond explanation - that show God is still at work in the world and in his people.
Here are just some of the many miracles recorded in the Bible:
Moses wrote about several miracles he performed before Pharaoh to free Israel from slavery in Egypt. These included parting the Red Sea as well as causing water to follow him and his team when they were lost in the desert.
The prophets often described what they believed to be happening in their times. For example, Isaiah said that God would send an angel to destroy the Assyrians, who were threatening to invade Israel. But instead of destroying the army, God sent Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt!
Jesus Christ himself said that he was with his disciples before they ever saw him and that he had done many other miraculous things for them without knowing it.
In truth, through the power of Jesus Christ, modern-day miracles occur all around the world. On this website, you may see real-life miracles with your own eyes and hear incredible testimonials of miracles that have occurred in our time. What you are going to witness will enlighten you to a fascinating reality: modern-day miracles are genuine. They happen every day, and they can happen to you.
Miracles are events or actions that appear to break laws of nature, but they do not contradict any known scientific law. Scientists believe that certain things are impossible, such as creating life out of nothing or curing diseases completely with medicines. However, scientists also acknowledge that some of these things are merely difficult to achieve. A miracle is one form of an extraordinary event, which occurs very rarely in this world but does happen from time to time.
According to Christian beliefs, God works in and through humans to create new things and solve human problems. Christians believe that God created the universe and everything in it including plants and animals. He also believes that everyone has a soul and has responsibility for their own sins. Only God has the power to forgive sins and have mercy on people who seek Him through Jesus Christ. No one has the power to perform miracles today because we are all too weak and sinful to do so. But God can work through people who have been touched by His Spirit to accomplish His goals through them.
