In a time of economic uncertainty—when circumstances make it particularly tempting to believe in the scarcity of the material plane over the abundance of the spiritual—our capacity to think. The function of Parable in religion is to exhibit "form by form." Law undertakes the profounder task of comparing "line by line." Thus Natural Phenomena serve mainly an illustrative function in Religion.

The definition of miracle as a "violation of natural law" is to settle the question before its discussion. Defining a miracle as "a violation of the laws of nature" or "a transgression of a law of nature by a particular volition of the Deity, or by the interposition of some invisible agent," Hume called three strikes against the Christian.
