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.
