Miraculous Story of Life and Death - Page 2
The controversy is heating up. Evidence of that are in the comments on both ABC stories, including the initial exclusive story and the follow-up story — both revealing the debate: unexplained phenomenon or miracle of God?
Throughout this decade, many authors have attacked religion and the notion of God. Christopher Hitchens’ book God Is Not Great, 2009, followed books like The God Delusion, 2006, by Richard Dawkins. These authors contend that the need to explain mysteries led to fictional stories, which in turn became written “truth” in holy books. They consider it delusional to think that God is responsible and that miracles are the acts of a deity.
Despite what some may think, events like baby Coltyn’s birth make this debate harder to argue, not to mention the Christmas Eve timing.
Albert Einstein once said: “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” Einstein’s quotation, though, steering clear of religion and god, doesn't shed much light on his personal beliefs. However, Time Magazine did a piece that might.
Despite the controversy, the baby's father is certain of what happened, telling ABC News, “There’s only one explanation, and it’s just an absolute miracle.”
