DOES HUMAN EXPERIENCE REALLY COUNT AGAINST MIRACLES?

The philosopher David Hume once argued that human beings have a “uniform” experience showing us that miracles do not occur. He then argued that, given this uniform experience against miraculous occurrences, no one could ever reasonably believe one had occurred.

But is Hume right? Is there a “uniform experience” of human beings that shows miracles never occur?

Challenging this thesis of Hume is Dr. Craig Keener. Keener’s book, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts, says that current research shows that human experience is far from uniform. In fact, hundreds of millions of people today claim to have experienced miracles.

In this episode of Spiritual Combat, I’m speaking with Keener about his book and why it is important for how we view the reports of miracles in the New Testament.
