  • John Locke and his argument on Miracles
    • Locke described a miracle as an event which is interpreted by the witnesses to be contrary to the laws of nature
      • So, it depends on the opinion of the witness as to whether something breaks natural laws
    • To be certain that a miracle has occurred, "it is necessary to know that the messenger that delivers it is sent from God"
    • An event shouldn't be considered a miracle if it is not consistent and praising of God, because God would not send someone to perform such a miracle
