  •  I agree with this. (0+ / 0-)

    I once read an analysis of miracles in which the writer asked what evidence I would need to make me believe that a person had levitated (maybe we've read the same article!).  Of course, modern readers would mention cameras, instruments, etc.  Then he said, what evidence would it take to convince you that a person had levitated 500 years ago.  

    Points out the problem pretty dramatically.  

    If you rule out miracles a priori, that's one thing. Even if you don't, however, the evidence bar is pretty darn high....
