Hume shifts definition from rare to impossible. Harnack plays on ignorance of ancients. Bultmann assumes universe cannot be penetrated. Abstracts of Powerpoint Talks What does miracle do to science & history? It makes an enormous difference in ultimate explanation. It may or may not make a big difference on a local scale.

Abstracts of Powerpoint Talks See Deut 13:1-5 re/ God allowing false prophets Re/ reality of miracles, see Geivett and Habermas, In Defense of Miracles - Not the End! Abstracts of Powerpoint Talks
