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


"This miracle is true for me, that miracle is true for you..."

You need very good evidence to justify believing in miracles because they are so out of the ordinary. The less evidence you have for your miracles, the more you must insist that the miracles are true for you even if not for anybody else.

Miracles are true for the believers. If I want my miracle tales to be true for me, then I have to want your miracle tales to be true for you. If I say its true that Jesus' mother appeared to me, I am saying I have no right to discourage you from thinking that if you feel you are a prophet and must engage in a suicide bombing that will do some mysterious supernatural good that justifies it. Perhaps the suicide bombing is needed for the divine plan to work. Belief in miracles has sinister implications. Miracles implicitly oppose what is good and healthy for people - even though they may look as if they do not.
