"Miracles are miracles not only because we do not understand them, for the moment, because we do not know how a happening is taking place or has taken place but more so because we cannot duplicate it or repel what has taken place just by wishing it to be undone."

Gibberish. People used to claim the sun rising and setting was a miracle, now we have equations to describe the process (gravity), a process which no God can reverse. If galaxies are actually being "created" (and I am extremely dubious of that, are you sure we weren't just discovering new ones or watching the process by which galaxies are formed (collecting star clusters, nebulae, etc.)?) it hardly qualifies as a miracle jusy because we can't currently or sufficiently explain it away. If this is the criteria for miraculous happenings, this ensures the most ignorant are also the most religious. It shouldn't be that way.

"Did you hear about the gamblers who were in the Greyhound Buss wreck coming back from Loss Vegas?

Gambling dose not pay well! knowing dose!"

Did you hear about the believers who died in a church fire?

Religion does not pay well! Knowing does!

See how it works the other way around? Don't make arguments like that, please be coherent.
