Part 4: Miracles and the Progress of Science

Dr. Robert A. Larmer, PhD

In this web series of articles, I develop some reflection and argument related to my recent book, The Legitimacy of Miracle (Lexington, 2013).

In this part, I examine the objection that the progress of science will ultimately provide explanation of any actually occurring events deemed miraculous is examined. I conclude that the progress of science strengthens rather than undermines paradigm examples of miracle claims.
