Five Miracles Atheists Believe

43:0719 Jul, 2023

Did you know that atheists must believe in miracles? How so?

As plant biologist, Dr Don Batten, explains, there are many things in the universe that defy naturalistic explanations. That is to say, naturalistic explanations for these events actually contradict the very laws of physics, chemistry, genetics, and so on, that naturalism is built on! Believing these events happened naturally anyway—in spite of the evidence—is like believing in magic!

Five major examples are given:

  1. The origin of the universe
  2. The origin of the stars
  3. The origin of life
  4. The origin of the diversity of life
  5. The origin of meaning, morality, and intellect

On the other hand, it is perfectly reasonable to believe in a supernatural cause when that’s what the physical evidence points towards! You might say that both Christians and atheists are compelled to believe in miracles—but Christianity has a suitable miracle worker, while atheism doesn’t.
