Some miracles are to be enjoyed rather than explained.;D
You make interesting intellectual choices.
Ah, the Religion of Science. Because we can describe gravity & use its effects, we believe we understand it.
A mixed (but good) message from Verne: Some things (at least sometimes), we should just enjoy and not try to explain.
That may be also be a hint of “truth” about miracles here, too. While there may be natural occurrences which seem miraculous (at first), there may also be actual miracles – things which are beyond scientific explanation. An actual miracle would be something that cannot be explained as just being a scientific phenomenon – something “supernatural” – something from God.
It could be argued that everything – our very existence – is a miracle.
There’s always an explanation for everything. Miracles are all but an allusion.
Shame Hammy is not in the middle panel to enjoy the sun :-)
“Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science!” -Agatha Heterodyne
It would be a sad, dull life if there was no room for wonder and whimsy.
did it feel good to get that off your chest
You go to a magic show.
Some in the audience will believe that actual magic is involved, but they are almost certainly wrong (I am with T.H. Huxley, who said “I am too much of a skeptic to consider anything impossible”). Some will be aware that there’s trickery, but take pleasure in the illusion. Some will dismiss it as mere trickery, and take no pleasure in the illusion (don’t be this guy).
But some will be more fascinated by the trickery than the illusion, and will not be satisfied until they learn how the tricks were done: these people are scientists (or perhaps just competing magicians).
Anyone else thinking of that song by Hot Chocolate?
I don’t consider anything a miracle unless the probability of it happening is zero.
Smokey Robinson believed in Miracles.
Trying to explain something that we don’t have the means to fully comprehend only leads to misconceptions that further confuse the issue.
A miracle is all about how people perceive things. If a person thinks that reemission of cancer from a patient diagnosed with a terminal cancer is a miracle, how are we to attribute that to science. The miracle is in the heart of the beholder not for deniers.
Overexplained? Sounds like modern baseball stats.
I really hate to read the comments on some of these cartoons because it takes so much of the limited time I have to do so. But the thoughts and opinions above are both though provoking and worthy of consideration, much more so than the evening news or what is heard from the Sunday pulpit.
