WHAT DOES MIRACULOUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

miraculous

Miracle

A miracle is an event not ascribable to human power or the laws of nature and consequently attributed to a supernatural, especially divine, agency. Such an event may be attributed to a miracle worker, saint, or faith based leader. A miracle is when a being with supernatural powers, such as a god, works with the laws of nature to perform what are miracles. Theologians say that, with divine providence, theistic gods regularly work through created nature yet are free to work without, above, or against it as well. The word "miracle" is often used to characterise any beneficial event that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, such as surviving a natural disaster, or simply a "wonderful" occurrence, regardless of likelihood, such as a birth. Other miracles might be: survival of an illness diagnosed as terminal, escaping a life-threatening situation or 'beating the odds'. Some coincidences may be seen as miracles.
