    The Magic Of Miracles

    by: Quality MRRs ltd. 0 0




    Nowadays, many things are considered miracles such as surviving a
    big disaster like a tsunami, earthquake, fire or car crash. A mother
    who was told that she couldn't ever get pregnant will see conceiving a
    child as a miracle. Surviving stage 4 cancer way beyond the estimated
    time that one is supposed to live is also a miracle. When there are
    problems, complications or threats, people pray to God. Surpassing
    these trials against all odds will then be seen as an answer to their
    prayers and thus a miracle.

    Different people in different cultures believe in different Gods or
    - supreme beings- . Sometimes certain cultures even have several of
    them. Christianity is the most widespread religion with 33.32% of the
    world's population believing in Jesus. Next is Islam with 21.01% of
    the world's population believing in Allah. Following Islam is
    Hinduism with 13.26% of the world's population believing in several
    Gods and Goddesses.

    Ganesha, Hanuman, Lakshmi, Shiva, and Durga are some of them. In
    the fourth spot, you have Buddhism at 5.84%. Unlike the first 3
    religions, the Buddhists do not believe in any God but rather adhere
    to the concept that any man can be enlightened by having a certain
    code of conduct and undertaking a method of mental discipline.

    They believe that "enlightened ones" will save all beings from
    sufferings. Buddha is an "enlightened one". He is considered by
    Buddhists as the enlightened father of humanity but not a God
    because they do not believe in the concept of God. The last 27 or so
    percent of the world are divided into many smaller religions.

    In all these religions, there have been extraordinary events amongst
    its believers that cannot be explained and whether they attribute it to
    their Gods, supreme beings or even to nature, all these unexplained
    events are collectively considered as miracles.

    Many things here on Earth have scientific explanations. What were
    considered as miracles before may not be considered as miracles now.
    In the old days, it was considered a miracle when people came back
    from the "dead".

    Science has explained that these "dead" people were in fact just in a
    deep meditative state and that their vital signs were not just detected
    by the primitive medical instruments that they used back then. Now,
    with all the technology that we have, coming back from the "dead" is
    usually accompanied with an explanation of why or how.

    Fire used to be considered as "magic" or a "gift from the Gods". This
    was so until friction was explained. However, there are too many
    things that remain unexplainable despite all the technology that we
    have and perhaps these things will never be explained because they
    are actually real miracles.
