Definition of extraordinary:
a : going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary <extraordinary powers>
b : exceptional to a very marked extent <extraordinary beauty>
I can say Einstein's intelligence was extraordinary and there is extraordinary evidence to prove it, E=MC2
If humans can be extraordinary then I think we need another word to describe biblical events like talking snakes, virgin births, walking on water, telling a storm to go away and it worked, turning water into wine and resurrections. That's supernatural stuff and goes beyond extraordinary.
I think supernatural is not provable with mathematics or logic. What kind of evidence do you have BS that there is this curious thing called supernatural? Have you ever witnessed something supernatural? Ever seen a ghost? Is there a mathematical equation that proves there is such a thing? I really don't know the answer to that.
There are 100's of billions of dead bodies and I have never ever seen a ghost. I would expect to see at least 3 ghosts a day if there were such things.
Do you have a guardian angel? Is that why I did not get hit by lightening while walking in a storm one day long ago? Why don't they protect children from x abuse, poverty and or cancer; death?
A supernatural world is not the world I live in.
I think a better question to begin with is: is it necessary for the supernatural to exist? Answering this question is not for the lazy inquirer. There are no shortcuts and (unless you are fortunate) time, effort, and careful thought is required. Embracing Philosophical Materialism as the sole determinant of reality is irrational. Therefore, the statement- “non-physical things might be real even though they are not physical” -is a logically correct statement.
You're the one asking that question........... SUGAR! Don't be lazy and let us know what you find.
I think for a dead body to reanimate it most definitely is necessary unless you can provide a natural way in which this could happen.
You are being slippery here. If you accept "miracles" as supernatural, then you know you can not prove anything, rather you try to dismiss a very common understanding of what a miracle is; an event defies the laws of physics.
