Some of the thousands of witnesses of the Fatima miracle of 1917; an event effortlesslesly rejected by modern pseudo-skeptical materialism - on the prior (but dishonestly unacknowledged) metaphysical assumption that miracles cannot be real.
I am reading an interesting and amusing book called The Rough Guide to Unexplained Phenomena by the (late great) John Michell and Bob Rickard - and it struck me that, although some people call for miracles to 'prove' the reality of God; the modern world is immune to miracles.
Indeed, I think it would probably be counterproductive; because a spectacular mass miracle would surely be interpreted materialistically - as a mass psychosis, or mass deception, a mass scam, or an example of mass mind-control. Certainly, an impressive miracles seen by thousands of people would not be taken as evidence of the reality of a God who is the creator and our loving Father.
This is, perhaps, not so surprising; because all miracles are indirect communications that rely on human senses and human interpretations; and then rely on more human senses and interpretations in communicating the conclusions more widely.
At the level of phenomena, reason and communications; there is a vast (and unbridgeable) gulf between what really happened in a miracle, and the understanding of what happened, in the minds of Men - and this gap has been made de facto infinitely great by the assumptions of modern materialist metaphysics.
We can see that the only kind of knowledge that will suffice for Modern Man is knowledge which is absolutely direct (without any mediation of sensory data, communication, reasoning etc) and absolutely personal (not secondhand, not based on report of others, not dependent on authority).
In other words; Modern Man needs knowledge which is conceptualised as direct and personal - and might be 'explained', perhaps, as either transmitted directly mind-to-mind; or else comprises minds in sympathy, or empathic identity, knowing exactly the same reality: as many minds thinking the same thoughts.
Therefore, the miracles we ought to be looking for are for our-selves not for 'everybody', and their job is to be graspable, wholly know-able, solidly believe-able by our-selves.
(And so Not a generally-observable public phenomenon, buttressed by that kind of 'objective evidence' that would (supposedly, but not in actuality) prove a miracle to hostile, materialist skeptics...)
And what we seek, we will find: Because personal, direct miracles are needed by Modern Man, therefore miracles are supplied, and in abundance, by our loving God. It is merely a matter of choosing to notice them.
