Thank you for sharing this miraculous photographic image

Ask Oprah, she seems to know a lot about miracles. Everything to her is a fucking miracle; especially when she pays them to come on her show, which in turn boosts her ratings, which in turn makes her more money. Calling something a miracle implies divine intervention. You know like: dear god, thank you from saving me from the fire engulfed inferno you allowed me to become engulfed in in the first place, it was a Miracle. A gazelle that escapes from a lion doesn't think it's a miracle, they just think, what the fuck was that(?), and then they start eating grass again. As humans, we tend to think that our shit doesn't stink and when good things happen, we tend to think that some supernatural power must have contributed to the process.

A miracle would be that I find a girlfriend that loves me for who I am. I has never happened, I'm 31 years old and still a virgin, miracles does not exist.

I don't like either of those definitions of miracles. To me, what IS "magical" or "miraculous" is something I DO understand, and it is just incredibly awesome. Really understanding what goes on, say, inside the body of a caterpillar "infected" with Copidosoma floridanum, and understanding how such strategies evolved and why, is far, FAR more wondrous and amazing than just seeing something and not understanding how it happens. As Douglas Adams said: "I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day". Miracles aren't what we don't understand, they are what we DO understand... and how we came about to understanding them.

Maybe the issue here is, what is a miracle ? And when we refer to the birth of a child or the hatching of a chick or the division of a yeast cell as a miracle, are we using the term in its literal sense or are we using it in some other sense? My understanding is that a miracle in the strictly literal sense is an event in which 'natural law' is suspended. Water is instantly turned into wine, a dead man comes back to life, etc. Most of us with scientific training tend to be sceptical of those kinds of miracles. But it doesn't bother me to hear people use the term 'miracle' to describe something like the birth of a child, because for all we know and understand,there is still much about it all that is beyond our comprehension, and that which is beyond human understanding has always appeared to be magical or miraculous.Even to scientists.

Change the picture to that of a parasitoid wasp emerging from a cockroach, and THEN tell us that. I find it hilariously ironic that in order to say that we should live our lives as if everything were a miracle, people have to resort to using pictures of something EVERYONE thinks is a "miracle". Mind you..... I am simply trying to make the point that sayings like that are ridiculous/pointless/meaningless. Nobody actually believes or practices them. I DO think parasitoid wasps and the ugly side of biology are "miracles" in the very natural sense of the word, hence me being a biology major.
