A religious believer accepts that God exists and if there is strong historical evidence that a miracle has occurred, it seems reasonable to believe that it has, as long as there seems to be a suitable motive for God acting in this particular way

The nature of God as loving and compassionate may be another reason why religious believers accept that miracles occurGod, in his love, might be expected to intervene through compassion

Evidence from sacred writings

  • The sacred writings of many religions record supernatural events to vindicate the claims of those who are accepted as God's messengers on earth
  • Some historians, such as Carl Brooker, argue that miracles cannot be the object of historical investigation since miracles
