No – believing that miracles happen does not mean rejecting science. A 2004 study found 73% of U.S. medical doctors believe that miraculous healing occurs today.¹ Doctors’ knowledge, skills, and medical tests, often including various medical equipment, can be a part of a careful study of claimed miraculous healing. When you apply rigorous methods of evidence-based research, you can show the effects of prayer and discover and document the evidence of miraculous healing. Science and miracles are not mutually exclusive.
