Dialogue 42 (01):123- (2003)
|Abstract||This paper, a reply to Robert Larmer’s "Miracles, Evidence, and God," is the sixth in an exchange between us that began in 1985 on the epistemic status of miracles. Here I argue against Larmer’s definition of "miracle" because it is based upon an anthropomorphic understanding of laws of nature. But even granting his definition, I demonstrate that his method of showing that miracles are evidence for God is circular. I contend that if a miracle (in Larmer’s sense) were to occur, it would be evidence against the existence of the Christian God, understood as an omnipotent, all-good, and omniscient being|
