Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Science doesn't have an explanation for miracle healings. Scientists call them "spontaneous remission". The name doesn't offer any explanation.

Miracle healings happen. That's a fact.

Hold it right there.

"Spontaneous remission" happens. That's a fact.

Calling it a "miracle healing" is an interpretation.

Since the fact that remission or healing took place can be agreed on, but whether there was a supernatural event ("miracle") involved  is not agreed on.

A doctor may say "I don't know how this happens". And you come and say "I know, it was a miracle". And how do you know? "Because of my faith".
