Belief in Miracles – Part 1: Summary

Belief in Miracles – Part 1: Summary April 6, 2019

I was invited to be a speaker at the NW Miracles Conference, thanks to Bob Seidensticker who suggested to the conference organizer that I could represent a skeptical viewpoint on the question “Is it ever reasonable to believe miracle claims?”

I came prepared with a PowerPoint presentation called “Belief in Miracles”, but because of time constraints and concerns about switching back and forth between different speakers with different PowerPoints, I had to rely on my memory of the contents of the PowerPoint, with a little help from the paper copy of the PowerPoint that I brought with me to the conference.

Here is a summary of the main points I had planned to make at the conference:


I did manage to remember and express most of these points, so my time and effort preparing the PowerPoint was not wasted.  However, because of the limited amount of time available, I was not able to make all of these points, nor was I able to make them as clearly and in as much detail as I would have liked.

So, I’m planning to take my time making these skeptical points fully, clearly, and in more detail here at The Secular Outpost.
