I believe miracles can occur and that at least the majority of the miracles described in the Bible did occur, but I don't believe that miracles are supernatural in the sense that they break physical laws. Rather I believe they make use of physical laws in ways we don't yet understand.
pzkpfw said:1. Wouldn't a lack of evidence relegate this to "magic"? (Or supernatural causes?)
I don't know how to turn five loaves and two fishes into a meal for thousands of people, but I can accept that God knows quite a bit more than I about how the physical laws of the universe work and that He may have a way to seemingly produce food from nothing.
Some people do so, but if it were a strictly natural occurance it would be of no concern and little interest to me. Because it was an act of God it becomes significant and worthy of study.
2. If you accept that maybe it wasn't global, why would it be unreasonable to accept it simply as a "natural" flood that has grown to mythic proportions via story telling? (Many older cultures apparently have similar flood myths).
