Have to Make Excuses to Believe in Miracles

A miracle is what is not naturally possible. It is a supernatural occurrence. It is paranormal.
Miracles are events that seem to be against nature or the way natural law usually runs. In other words, they cannot be explained by nature. Examples are the Blessed Virgin Mary appearing to children, the unexplained cure of incurable illness, blood coming out of nowhere on Catholic communion wafers, the sun spinning at Fatima in Portugal in 1917 and most importantly Jesus Christ coming back to life after being dead nearly three days. It is thought that only God can do these things.
Some people claim to do miracles regularly. Yet they age and get sick and fall into hard times like anybody else can. If they could really do miracles they would be able to avoid those things. Or so you would think.
Religion answers that God decides what miracles to do, not them. If he gives them a choice, the range of choice they have will be limited. Is that really an answer or is it a cop-out? Can we tell either way? Many yell "No!"
It is based on the same love of making excuses as saying when a fake psychic is caught cheating, “But he might not have cheated all the time!” Again the excuse tries to stop you being able to tell either way – that is the least it tries to do.
You are left only with the possibility that the person has real powers but no evidence that he does.
When the evidence gives us no reason to believe, we cannot believe.
Excuse-making and rationalisation are bad habits. They hurt you in life. They make you the cause of unwitting hurt to others. Miracles encourage all that evil.
