  1. There’s a lot of stretching “common phrases in all religions” into miracles. For instance, to assign miracle status to a verse that suggests 40 days as a key stage in embryonic development is short of the requirement.
    40 days is a time period used in many many religious stories in connection with a great many things.
    For the record, I am not an atheist, I just do not belong to any religion, nor do I think women should be owned by men. Control of others is not a miracle, nor is it sound spiritual practice. If the 40 days, and mountains as pegs, count as miracles, then what of the 20 day calendar containing Aqabal as the 13th day, and that day associated with building, specifically the cube and blocks of temples, by the Maya 6,000 years ago ? Surely that is a miracle also. I do believe in miracles and have seen a few, but making ambiguous phrases into miracles is a hallmark of religion. And always the miracles are in the past, as no priest of religion currently wishes to be analyzed for miracle status. Rockets flying to the moon is a miracle. Mendeleev got the periodic table in a dream, and never suggested it was a miracle.
