    • In religion
      • Miracles are a real part of what happens in the world
      • Miracles are brought about by God, someone empowered by God, or spiritual force
        • These things are true despite the fact we don't understand everything about miracles, nor can we directly observe them
          • Miracles are a real part of what happens in the world
          • Miracles are evidence of God's existence and care for the world

    • When a realist informs us of a miracle taking place they...
      • Are telling us that something has happened in the external world
      • Are telling us about the nature of the event
      • Are making a claim about the (supernatural) cause of the event
