On Presuppositions

Assessing the probability of miracles as low is no more a matter of presuppositions than is assessing as low the probability that the sun will rise in the west. It is a conclusion based on knowledge and experience.

  1. Which means what, exactly? I don't know that many Christians would presume to assert that the probability of the miraculous is high. Few witness "walk on water" level of anomalies and wouldn't begin to dispute the low probability of miracles.

    But the presuppositions by atheists and others regarding the unlikelihood of miracles, I believe, has less to do with knowledge and experience than it does the desperate need to deny the existence of God.
