Ask a Christian apologist for evidence of the existence of her god, and one form of evidence she will present is the existence of millions of miracle claims by Christians all over the earth.
“How can all these claims of supernatural intervention be false?” she will ask.
Let’s take a closer look at this “evidence”.
Are Christians the only people claiming to experience miracles? No. People of practically every religion, cult, and sect on the planet claim to experience miracles. In addition, a comparison of the morbidity (sickness) and mortality (death) rates of Christians when compared to Muslims, Hindus, Jews, etc. of the same socio-economic class demonstrates zero difference. There is no good evidence that Christian prayers achieve any better health outcomes for Christians than prayers to Allah and Lord Krishna achieve for Muslims and Hindus respectively.
“Maybe Jesus performs miracles for non-Christians too.”
“Maybe Satan is performing miracles in the name of Allah and Lord Krishna to deceive Muslims and Hindus.”
But what about the fact that the only people on earth claiming to experience miracles are theists? Atheists do not claim to experience miracles, yet atheists, who tend to be better educated and better off socio-economically than the average theist, have the same if not better morbidity (sickness) and mortality (death) rates than theists.
So either the Christian god is evenly distributing his miracles among all people on planet earth, regardless of whether they are Christian, Muslim, or Hindu, and regardless of whether they are theist or atheist, or, miracles are the product of the delusional thinking of theists.
Which is it?
