Miracle


Remarkable and incomprehensible phenomena have been observed throughout human history – phenomena which, without any logical explanation, can only be described as miracles. Surprisingly, a majority of the human population believes in the concept of miracles, but rarely are these occurrences discussed openly in public forums. Yet this type of mysticism is embedded into various cultures throughout the world, in all stages of human history. Buddhism is a great example, a faith that is abundant with scriptures of human beings with superpowers, the power of human consciousness, distant healing, etc. Even today, when it comes to the power of human consciousness and parapsychological manifestations like distant health or telepathy, there is substantial evidence confirming that at least some of these phenomena are, without a doubt, real. Just because we cannot develop a sound scientific theory to explain these types of occurrences does not mean they do not exist.
Below are 5 examples of “miracles” that have been observed in the field of medicine.
“Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.” – Saint Augustine
In 1983, physician Rex Gardner published a study in the British Medical Journal after he studied a number of miraculous healing events. (source) Here are a select few.

Case #1

In 1977, an eleven month old baby boy with signs of a lung disease that is almost always fatal was taken to a healing service by a Pentecostal pastor. Keep in mind that this approach was taken after the disease was treated without success. A few days later he was remarkably better and a few years later he was completely normal.

Case #2

In 1975, a student physician was suddenly diagnosed with what is called Water-house Friderichsen syndrome. It’s a fatal disease, a bacterial blood infection that leads to massive internal bleeding. In this particular hospital there was a zero percent success rate of healing for anyone suffering from it. In the same evening, four separate groups actively sent healing intention to the patient and there then occurred a drastic improvement in her condition. When she had been admitted to the hospital, her chest X-rays showed extensive left-side pneumonia and a completely collapsed middle lobe of the lung. She also had developed intraocular bleeding, which left her one hundred percent blind in one eye. Only forty-eight hours later, the X-ray showed a perfectly clear chest, and she had regained full vision. This is impossible, according to modern day physicians.

Case #3

Case number three is about a woman who took a hard fall on a cement floor. She was taken to a hospital and the X-ray showed a compound fracture of the pelvis. This is a serious injury, one that takes a very long time to heal and even longer to rehabilitate. This woman was taken home where she was then surround by others praying for her and laying their hands on her. She should have been bedridden, unable to move for weeks, but after only two days she had fully recovered.

Case #4

In 1970, the captain of the Girl’s Brigade at Enon Baptist Church, Monkwearmouth, had a deterioration in a large varicose ulcer of the leg which had been troubling her for many years. Every morning her bandage was soaked with pus, and her doctor told her that her ulcer would probably not heal, and even if it did it would require skin grafting.
What happened here, again, was healing intention. She was visited by a number of people who laid hands on the area and prayed. Healing became “immediately complete.” By the next morning, virtually the whole ulcer had dried up and healed over with healthy skin. One week later it was completely healed.

Case #5

In 1963, a man by the name of Robin Talbot of the Overseas Missionary Fellowship, along with his wife, was the first Christian ever to stay in the village of Still Water. It was in the Mong tribal area of North Thailand. While they were there, a woman by the name of Mrs. Ling, who was approximately 50 years old at the time, became very ill. According to the villagers and the missionaries, she passed away soon after. Twenty minutes after her death she sat up and told a tale of an “afterlife” experience. That being said, there is absolutely no hard proof that she had actually died.

In modern day scientific realms, this is considered to be a Near Death Experience (NDE), something that has been documented, verified, and confirmed by various neuroscientists (although unexplainable). You can read more about that, and watch a video of Dr. Bruce Greyson speaking at a conference that was held by the United Nations here and here. He is considered to be one of the “fathers” of near death studies. He is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Science at the University of Virginia
