Do Miracles Happen?

“Miracles” refer to acts by a supernatural entity in favor of a mortal. Thus, miracles are something unexplainable by science or the laws of nature because they are seemingly related to come from God. Miracles are extremely divine natural phenomenon experienced humanly as the fulfillment of spiritual law.

Two Different Views

For pious people, miracles are manifestation of something heavenly received by humans through deep spiritual petitions. For atheists, miracles are mere consequences or random chances in the universe. Do we truly witness a prodigy sent from heaven? Do humans create an inner desire to beg for extraordinary events during their dark days of desperation founded by faith and religion? Or again, to put it simply, miracles eventually happen without any explanation required. Period.

Miracle: Just a State of Mind

Different clippings, testimonials and essays were seen, heard and read about how random individuals experienced miracles. Some even wrote about their daily encounter of this spiritual phenomenon. One of the clippings on the net depicted a corpse believed to be able to heal people with terminal illnesses. The Dancing Lady, Lady in Black, a Statue of Mary Pooled with Blood from Her Eyes and even the Dancing Sun were all supernatural news which gained popularity because of the “miracles” they brought and the sensation they enticed to the public especially for those people who cried for impossible solutions over hopeless problems. These devotees and believers flocked together to hope against all odds that their prayers and their troubles would instantly be answered and be gone. Could that situation just be a term called, “Hallucination” in Psychiatry? Where something such as an image, a sound, or a smell is perceived to be real but does not really exist and that is usually caused by mental illness or the effect of a drug? Do people who believe in those are just totally manipulated by the doer of the actions?

The Dying Girl

The Bible, the book of sacred writings used in the Christian religion, claimed different situations where Jesus performed miracles. One was that of a dying girl (Matthew Chapter 9 Verses 18-19; 23-25) where an official’s daughter just died but when Jesus went into the home of the official, Jesus declared that the girl wasn’t dead but said she was just asleep. One concrete medical explication for that is a case of comatose patients – a state of profound unconsciousness caused by disease, injury or poison characterized by mental and motor inactivity with partial or total insensibility. A person who is in coma experiences lowered physiological activity typically with reduced metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and body temperature that occurs in varying degrees.

A Woman who Bled for 12 Years

“A woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes. She had said to herself, “If I can just touch his clothes, I will get well.” Jesus turned. He saw the woman and said, “Don’t worry! You are now well because of your faith.” At that moment she was healed.” In scientific term, a woman was suffering of haemorrhage. It was a fascination that she survived for 12 years. Haemorrhage is a condition in which a person bleeds too much and cannot stop the flow of blood. In a woman’s case, her clotting factor might be low that coagulation in the blood takes slowly. Psychology also plays a vital role in the situation because the woman’s conviction was so strong that her mind is conditioned to believe that she would be healed. The power of the mind is so strong that anything that we hold with strong credence usually manifests the way we perceive it to be. Or simply put to it, a random chance of the circumstance.

Miracles or Not

Miracles or not, we wonder about how an impossible problem is usually solved with unthinkable solution. Miracles happen every day – we might not able to notice it but the reality still does exist – not all intangibles are hallucinations or delusions. Like that of a wind which shows its explicit energy to us through our sense of feeling not with the sense of sight. Miracles do happen when we believe and when we choose to believe. We may call it a consequence or a random chance, but aren’t we stupid enough to know that science could not even count the number of stars in solar system nor the vastness of the infinite universe? Miracles do exist. Miracles do happen. We just got to believe.
