Proof of the Scientific Possibility of Miracles

Someone disprove this logic, please! I can’t believe that it was this easy. I must have gotten something wrong.

This is a proof of possibility, not a proof of occurrence in fact.

  1. Does science explain phenomena before they occur or after they occur?
    1. If before they occur, explain how (Hint: prediction is not explanation)
    2. If after they occur, go to 2
  2. Is science required before a feat can be performed?
    1. If Yes, explain most athletic feats, which are performed by non-scientists without a scientific understanding of the feat
    2. If No, go to 3
  3. Is it possible that science will figure out a way to walk on water sometime in the future?
    1. If No, what’s your proof?
    2. If Yes, go to 4
  4. Would walking on water be considered a miracle by today’s standards?
    1. If No, describe non-miraculous walking on water
    2. If Yes, go to 5

  5. If walking on water is possible, might other feats considered miracles by today’s standards also be possible?
    1. If No, explain why walking on water is an exception
    2. If Yes, go to 6
  6. So, to recap:
    1. Yes, feats can be performed before science can explain them.
    2. Yes, feats be performed without explaining them scientifically.
    3. Yes, feats be performed by people without scientific understanding of the feat.
    4. Yes, walking on water could someday be scientifically possible.
    5. Yes, walking on water is considered a miracle by today’s standards.
    6. Yes, if walking on water is possible, other feats considered miracles by today’s standards are also possible.

  7. Therefore, feats considered miraculous by today’s standards are scientifically possible.

Prove me wrong, I dare ya! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Well I can’t. I was just thinking this watching The Da Vinci Code- he Performed Miracles, we all can.

    But it’s so important to honour nature,- I was going to say, to honour what is – but They’re both the same, aren’t they? Nature, supernature- it’s the same.

    Swirling cloud of dust with stars and yellow in it.

    Bless you Mill.

    Didn’t Dawkins just allow for the possibility of God in a recent Church of England debate? “Possibility” is an absolutely wonderful reality!
