Daily Gleanings: Miracles (21 October 2019)

Michael Kruger tackles arguments against miraculous events like Jesus’s resurrection based on their low probability of occurrence.

A main point to which Kruger returns is that the interpretation of any given event as miraculous (or not) “is contingent on a person’s overall worldview and the assumptions they make about reality.”

For the balance of Kruger’s discussion, see his original post. For related discussion of Hume by Craig Keener, see this post.
