Miracles: The Case for Theism

American Philosophical Quarterly 25 (4):331 - 337 (1988)
Abstract
IN THE PAPER THERE IS AN ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH THE FOLLOWING THREE PROPOSITIONS: (1) THE CONCEPT OF MIRACLE IS NOT DEFECTIVE; (2) MIRACLES ARE NOT OBSTACLES TO SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS; (3) THE BEST EXPLANATION FOR THE OCCURRENCE OF CERTAIN RADICAL ANOMALOUS EVENTS IS THAT THE AGENCY OF A SUPERNATURAL BEING WAS PART OF THEIR CAUSE. THE ARGUMENT IS NOT INTENDED TO PROVE GOD’S EXISTENCE FROM MIRACLES, BUT ONLY THAT THERE ARE NO "A PRIORI" OBSTACLES TO SUCH A PROOF. THERE COULD BE AMPLE HISTORICAL DOCUMENTATION OR ARCHAEOLOGICAL TRACES TO WARRANT AN INFERENCE THAT MIRACLES HAD TAKEN PLACE, AND THUS PROVING THEISM
