Abstract

In this thesis I argue that the common philosophical strategy of arguing from the laws of nature to the impossibility of miracles fails. I argue that miracles, defined as events which are unusual, supernaturally caused events of religious significance, are indeed possible. I then consider what evidence would be required in order for one to justifiably believe that such an event had occurred.
