How do miracles prove God's existence?

  • completely defy nature or seem impossible. God made the universe so he's the one that could go against it.
  • there's only on entity powerful enough to make them happen, just like he's the only one powerful enough to create the universe
  • miracles can be personal things so can make one person believe in God and miracles but not others. However it's one extra person who believes in God

What are the problems with using miracles to prove

  • it's very difficult to explain a miracle to someone if they havent seen it before themselves therefore they would not make this person believe in them or God
  • miracles have to be created by someone but why God? Why couldn't humans have created them? (like Buddhists believe)
  • we now have scientific evidence for the miracles that happened years ago so in 20 years we may have scientific evidence for the Mira les that are happening now
  • what a miracle is to one person may not be a miracle to another person therefore can make one peron believe but perhaps not others
  • how do we know it's not just coincidence?
