A miracle is an unusual event that goes against the commonly observed laws of nature. The Bible reveals to us that miracles accompanied the prophets whom God used to deliver His Word to humankind. Because of these miracles people knew that these prophets truly were men of God, and that the words they spoke (and wrote) were God's words.
Humanists, socialists, communists, and other atheists try constantly to discredit the very concept of miracles. Why? Because if there have never been any miracles, then the Bible is just a big lie. And if the Bible is just a big lie, then we had best discard it and look elsewhere for a philosophy to live by. Probably, in such a case, there is no God either, nor would there be a Heaven or Hell, or even absolute rights and wrongs. However, if the miracles that accompanied the writing of the Bible really happened, then the Bible is true, there is a Creator God, and we all had better believe what He says, and obey His commandments. The purpose of this pamphlet, however, is not to discuss whither or not miracles have ever happened, for everybody believes in miracles, even the people who say they don't believe in them. Even humanists/atheists believe in miracles! Yes they do!
Even Atheists Believe In Miracles! Humanists,
socialists, communists, and other atheists base their lives on some of
the most incredible
ever imagined. Consider for instance
The Big Bang Theory is the atheist/humanist doctrine of how the universe
began. This theory teaches that in the beginning the matter of the whole
universe was compressed into a tiny ball smaller then a pinpoint. (Where
all this matter came from is seldom discussed.) Then (without cause) there
was a tremendous explosion which, instead of disintegrating things into
particles, assembled particles into things, and instead of destroying life
created it! Explosions as observed today never do this; all observed explosions
kill and destroy, producing chaos---never do they give life or produce
order. Such an event certainly goes against all the presently observed
laws of nature, and therefore, if it ever really happened, certainly was
An especially importance atheist/humanist doctrine is abiogenesis. Abiogenesis is the idea that life sprang spontaneously from dead matter, perhaps at the time the big bang occurred. (The only alternative to abiogenesis is the Bible teaching of biogenesis---that life can only come from life.) Abiogenesis is essential to any philosophy based on atheism. Yet the idea of abiogenesis goes totally against the observable facts of nature. Every living organism ever observed coming into existence has come out of another living being. No one has ever even once seen life spring from non-living matter. In fact, it was Louis Pasteur's vigorous exposure of the fraud of abiogenesis that made him the father of modern medicine. In Pasteur's day, abiogenesis was called "spontaneous generation," but Pasteur so thoroughly disproved spontaneous generation that humanists are now forced to refer to the idea as "abiogenesis" to avoid stigma.
Evolution is another miracle essential to atheist/humanist dogma. Evolution
is the idea that one kind of being can give birth to a different kind of
being. Change within a species, of course, happens all the time (there
are, for example, a great variety of cats); but never does a cat give birth
to a new kind of animal---which is what humanists/atheists are implying
when they use the word evolution. Evolution, of course, has never been
observed. All observed births demonstrate just the opposite: each living
being gives birth only to a baby of its own kind, just like the Bible stresses
in Genesis chapter one. Nor is there any evidence in the fossil record
that evolution ever has happened. The "missing links" Darwin hoped would
be discovered in the fossils have never been found. So, in spite of constant
atheist/humanist hype to the contrary, evolution is not science, but mere
superstition. It is blind
faith in a phony miracle which no one has ever witnessed.
Humanist philosophers present all of their doctrines as science. But the scientific method demands observation. And the beginning of the universe and the beginning of the first living beings cannot be observed. Only God saw these things happen, and we either believe His testimony concerning these things or else we deem Him a liar. Teachings concerning these things are not scientific but religious. Louis Pasteur---that king of scientists---correctly observed that philosophy is not science and could not prove the origin of the universe and life even if it was. Wrote Pasteur:
Since everybody believes in miracles, the important question is not
"Should we believe in miracles?" Rather, the important question is, "In
whose miracles should we believe?" Or more
specifically, in which miracle worker should
we believe? Our choice is this: either we will believe in God, or we will
believe in Satan. If there is a God, He certainly can produce miracles.
That is entirely believable. But if there be no God, then what mysterious
force produces miracles? If God is not the force of creation, then evolution
is. And if evolution is the force of creation, then evolution is god. Therefore,
belief in evolution is idolatry---worship of a pagan god. And a pagan god
by whatever name is really just Satan in disguise. Atheism/humanism is
thus a form of the occult. It is pure superstition. Many atheists/humanists
deny believing in Satan, but even such renowned atheists/humanists as Margaret
Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and the recipient
of the Humanist of the Year award in 19575), Madalyn Murray O'Hair (the
atheist responsible for the Supreme court decision removing prayer from
schools), and Aldous Huxley (atheist/humanist author and brother to the
famous Sir Julian Huxley of the American Humanist Association) dabbled
in the occult.6 If a person is gullible
enough to believe in abiogenesis and evolution, he is gullible enough to
believe virtually anything Satan decides to feed him. Faith in evolution
is actually faith in Satan, whither the atheist/humanist realizes it or
not. A man who will not worship the true miracle worker (God) is by his
own choice worshipping the phony miracle worker (Satan).
Before rejecting the miracles recorded in the Bible, a person should at least give them some serious study. Consider for instance
The Miracle of the Virgin Birth of Christ.
Humanists/atheists laugh and scoff at people who believe the miracle of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, yet humanists/atheists themselves believe in the of some ape-like creature giving birth to the first human---and without God even helping! Considering the preposterousness of such an idea, it is the Christians that should be doing the laughing and scoffing. So consider seriously the importance of the virgin birth.
The Miracle of the Resurrection
"Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?" (Acts 26.8). Contrary to what humanists/atheists teach, death is not normal. Humans as originally created by God did not die. But Adam eating the forbidden fruit brought death upon us all.
Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. (1 Cor 15.20-28)
The Miracle of the New Birth
You can know that God is real today
by experiencing the miracle of the new birth.

In a personal letter to Juliette Huxley in 1965 Aldus wrote: "Do you find as I do, that the older one get, the more unutterably mysterious, unlikely and totally implausible one's own life and the universe at large steadily become? For practical purposes, one tries to make a little scientific and ethical sense of it all; for non-practical purposes-aesthetic and 'spiritual'-one cultivates Wordsworth's 'wise passiveness' and opens oneself up receptively to the MYSTERIUM TREMENDUM ET FASCINANS within and without" (Julian Huxley, Aldous Huxley (1894-1963): A Memorial Volume [New York: Harper & Row, 1965], 50).
