"A miracle, by definition, is a supernatural act that ignores, suspends or goes against natural processes. There would be no way to test the validity of a claimed miracle. The many appearances of the Virgin over the centuries would be a particularly…"

I waS baptized and raised in a liberal Presbyterian Church, but became a born-again Christian at age 13 and 18 (if at first you don't succeed...). I then studied for the ministry in the Free Methodist Church, a small, fundamentalist flavor of protestantism. Also being a little bit homosexual, I had a few conflicts between my sexuality and my faith, so I left it for almost two decades, calling myself an atheist, but it was not out any intellectual determination. At 40, I had a "spiritual re-awakening, and for the next 20 years, I practiced a liberal evangelicalism. After turning 60, I began to question the foundations of faith, and slowly determined I could no longer support faith with anything approaching reason and logic, so I finally "came out" as an unrepentant atheist, well-established and unashamed!
