    Not that it matters whether it is a Christian miracle, a
    spontaneous remission (medical miracle), a completely
    inexplicable distribution, a yogin holding an orange seed
    that sprouts, produces leaves, blooms, and sets an orange
    all in his palm, or the invoking a name, a state of being, etc,

    Sounds like you've stayed so far inside your
    comfort zone that you haven't seen any, for
    lack of a better term, "wierd s#!t".
