With God All Things Are Possible

But, if God exists, might there be events that science cannot explain? The answer is obvious. So, when we read in the Bible that some people in the first century saw a resurrected Jesus and concluded that God had worked a miracle, we must not dismiss this as "childish." The biblical accounts certainly do not sound childish. First-century Palestine is not Narnia.

This is not to say, of course, that God's existence provides a license for unbridled speculation, or somehow validates all past and present claims of miracles. It does, however, open reality to possibilities that go beyond what science can explain.
