For most of us, it is very easy to accept or reject this tool or value “Miracle Happens” because of our own beliefs but can we study this without any liking or disliking, acceptance or non acceptance about this (those who can’t please check value “how I do one thing, I do everything”).
Let us see what is the dictionary definition of word “Miracle”
“an unusual and mysterious event that is thought to have been caused by a god because it does not follow the usual laws of nature
an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.”
In both the definitions, it is something, which is beyond the natural logic or understanding of human being, so it is attributed to some one sitting up there. We don’t know he (or she) is sitting up or down but since we value word “Up” more than the word “Down”, it’s nice to say sitting up.
If it is really beyond understanding then concept of “someone there” is also a mystery. Let us see imagine how our cavemen ancestor’s came up with this concept.
Initially, it was daily life was just a fight for survival. At this stage, we as cavemen knew for sure that we did not create anything that is already there. So who created this? May be, there is someone who is more powerful and bigger than me who has done this but who cares? I need to fill my stomach and save my life from animals.
Slowly, we shifted to upper scale of social structure and moved into tribes, communities and this lead to systematic formation of religion. Since with this system, our survival was taken care and so “creator” started having good time. People started acknowledging him, praying him and asking for wishes.
This is our personal choice whether to believe or not to believe in this but one thing we cannot deny that there are so many things in this universe that we don’t really understand. People can fly would seem like a miracle to people who were born around a century ago and happened to visit this planet again.
So, can we say that something, which, we don’t understand is beyond our current level of logic and understanding but that, does not necessarily mean that does not exist? We also have lot of experiences of things in life which just happened to us out of no where as if it was a miracle.
When we apply our another value “How I do one thing, I do everything”, everything seem like falling in place like a miracle. So let’s celebrate everything that we don’t understand and say loudly “Miracle Happens”
