    Have you read Golden Compass series? It's not exactly how you describe, but it is pretty epic and exciting.

A one year old child opening it's mouth to speak is no less a work of God and no less amazing than an ass opening its mouth to speak.

    A miracle is a phenomenon which surpasses reality, or which is a possible outcome, but to such a tiny chance of succes that it is a phenomenon quite unbelievable.

    I believe in miracles, such as a revalidation of a cancerpatient. But not in terms of the 'impossible'. E.G. if someone could fly - without an aeroplane or other attributes - that would be a miracle - but it's unrealistic. SO yes and no.
