If nobody believed in superstition it would be unable to hurt anyone

 

Is Natural Law a Miracle?

Religion asks why there is any order in the universe when there could be nothing but chaos. It thinks the answer is God. God has miraculously designed the universe and organised it.

 

Some say, "The order of nature is a miracle. We believe in the miracle of order. It keeps things in order. We can't live if people start turning into frogs!"
This is a case where a miracle is believed in that refutes all other miracles.

 

You can be a sceptic and say that supernatural things do not happen for the laws of nature do not permit it. Also you can be a sceptic and say that the only supernatural event that has happened is the creation of the laws of nature.

 

Suppose it is a miracle that a seed grows into a flower. It would be strange then to say that the miracle of making the seed turn instantly into a flower is needed.

 

If natural law is a miracle, then it follows that if God decides to make a new natural law tomorrow he can.  
 
A God who makes miracle laws and then miraculously undoes them would be a very stupid and indecisive God.
