    How can a miracle be? To say that something "obeys the laws of nature" is merely to say that it is possible within certain limits. Like flubber says, these limits may be a little more flubberish than we normally consider them when you get QM involved. But would it be a miracle if, say, that I was both here in Austin and there in China? What would be so miraculous about it? It would only be a discovery that stretches the bounds of what we consider possible. A word like "miracle" can never be fitting. If it's impossible, then it didn't/couldn't happen. So what exactly would a miracle look like?
