3. Why do so many people believe in miracles? The miracle bias hypothesis that reports of miracles can always be found, irrespective of time, geographical location, or religious tradition. How could that be possible? The most straightforward answer to this question is that miracles do really take place everywhere, all the time. However, miracles should not be so prevalent.

1. What are miracles? ‘Miracles’ in sports The concept of a miracle is an elusive one. We all know roughly what it is and we can easily cite some well-known examples. Yet we struggle to state a precise definition. In fact, the proper definition of a miracle has been a matter of dispute among philosophers for centuries. An effective way to devise a satisfactory definition of any intractable concept is to consider a wide range of concrete examples that represent or misrepresent it. We can then examine what important features are present or missing in the examples to make a

4. Is it rational to believe in miracles? The most crucial question concerning miracles We have addressed many questions concerning miracles—How can we define a miracle? What types of miracles are reported in religious texts? How do psychologists explain the formation and transmission of belief in miracles? However, we have yet to address the most crucial question—Can we rationally believe in miracles? Let us address this question by scrutinizing existing arguments against belief in miracles.

11. The scrolls and early Christianity If media attention and sales figures are anything to go by, then the most sensational aspects of research are related to the link between the scrolls and the origins of the early Church. As mentioned in the opening chapter, even a whiff of controversy, especially involving the Vatican, will send journalists scurrying to investigate. The appetite of the public for plots involving the Dead Sea Scrolls remains unabated; secrecy, back-room deals, and spin-doctoring appeal to the human psyche that seeks to glimpse into a covert world of political and religious machinations beneath the ordered
