Need miracles be extraordinary?

Abstract
CRITICS FOLLOWING HUME ARGUE THAT MIRACLES BY NATURE VIOLATE REGULARITIES WHICH ARE AS WELL ESTABLISHED AS ANY AND WHICH THEREFORE CANNOT BE OVERTHROWN BY TESTIMONY. IT IS ARGUED HERE, HOWEVER, THAT SUCH CRITICISMS INVOLVE ERRORS OF INDUCTIVE REASONING AND THAT IF THERE IS EVEN A REMOTE CHANCE THAT A NON-DEISTIC GOD EXISTS, MIRACLES SIMPLY WOULD NOT BE THAT EXTRAORDINARY, SO THAT OFTEN STRONG TESTIMONY WILL PROVIDE GOOD REASON TO BELIEVE THEM
