Everything is miraculous. It is a miracle that one does not melt in one’s bath. — Pablo Picasso.

An extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in humans' life. An extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment.

A miracle is an event that is inexplicable by natural or scientific laws and gets attributed to some supernatural cause.

Also, it is an amazing product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something.

The Miracle of the Slave.

The Miracle of the Slave, a 1548 painting by Tintoretto, from the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice.

It shows an episode of the life of Saint Mark, patron saint of Venice, taken from Jacobus de Voragine’s Golden Legend.

The scene shows a saint intervening to make a slave who is about to be martyred invulnerable.

Baruch Spinoza claims that miracles are merely lawlike events of whose causes we are ignorant.

Spinoza totally rejects belief in miracles as supernatural wonders.

We should treat them as having no cause or having a cause immediately available. Rather the miracle is for combating the ignorance it entails.

For others, a miracle is an event that defies the laws of nature and is considered to be divine intervention.

Miracles are often seen as a sign of God’s power and presence, and they are often associated with religious events or figures.

In many religions, miracles are seen as proof of the existence of a higher power and are used to reinforce belief in the divine.

Examples of miracles include the healing of the sick, the creation of objects from nothing, and the ability to predict the future.

Is a human being a miracle?

Human skin has thousands of sensors that detect sensations and relay information to the brain. The human brain can store the same amount of information as 20,000 dictionaries.
