: Welcome again to you too Aslan :)
I don't believe 'humans perform miracles' per say. I believe that God has something to do with it. Personally, I do think that the sun will rise is a terrific analogy. It's something most of us expect daily, yet others point to with wonder and say "See, it's a miracle!". If that's the case, I tend to lean towards your reasoning, it's a miracle that has occured every day since we were born, so how does that make it stand apart?
: An everyday occurance does not a 'miracle' make, in my opinion.
What is a God-inspired miracle then in your opinion?
: I read some of Hume's essays. Do you have any specific suggestions?
He has four main works, these are "Treatise of Human Nature", "Inquiry into Human Understanding", "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion" and "Essay on Miracles".
: Have you had a chance to read any Lewis works? If you're short on time, I can toss a few essay links your way. Just let me know.
No, I'm afraid I haven't had time, been very busy. I really would appreciate some essay links, as I find it hard to get time to visit a library or bookshop.
