A highly educated individual goes out and foolishly plants several rows of vegetables.
Despite being called stupid, foolish, delusional, etc they continue to nurture their crop as if they knew something completely contrary to the beliefs of the majority.
Because the majority knew the harsh conditions of the desert would likely destroy any crop without extraordinary measures, they knew it would take a miracle to produce anything but wasted time and resources.
When the crop was mature and harvested, despite expectation, it it was labeled a miracle. Because these things cannot be grown in this environment. A miracle is the right label. It’s not a miracle that a harvest occurred. It’s that anyone had enough faith and commitment to do it.
Does that prove a Devine creator exist, no. It does prove, as many previous miracles have, that consensus is often the worst predictor of outcomes and usually not based in science.
Many discoveries have been made while seeking a answer from a belief in a God, many discoveries may have occurred sooner if those who claim to be educated, had not preached a gospel of impossibility and discouraged the will to even try.
God and Science go hand in hand.
It takes faith to believe the impossible is possible when your mind and eyes cannot make peace with what is known and what is seen.
I think so too, it is not a sin to learn and take from both faith and science.
But to clarify the science and Christianity in this is not where my criticisms lie at all. Mine is with blindly using “keyword” concepts without any obvious knowledge of what they are.
Apparently there is no theological history in the author’s background. Before you use an apple or an orange as a comparison to a subject or topic you should first know what the heck an apple or orange even is.
If you don’t know... then don’t use the concept as an incorrect comparison in the first place. They will just be incorrectly applied keywords without any factual context.
