      tl;dr improbable things are not miracles

    2. If we want to define miracles as "things that are impossible", then miracles don't exist.

    3. If we want to define miracles as "things that are improbable" then they're simply meaningless. Improbable things happen, all the time, and that doesn't warrant an appeal to divine intervention. The universe is really really really really big, and there's a whole lot of stuff happening. The law of large numbers states that "given an infinite universe, every event with non-zero probability - however small - will eventually occur. Or put another way: given enough chances, even the most unlikely event is certain to happen."

      So the fact that you are here is not a miracle. The odds against your existence are astronomical...luckily, the universe deals in astronomical proportions, so it's really not that strange.
