Lecture Forty-one Discussion Miracles, Relics and other Follies The books and articles referred to in the lecture may be found in the Bibliography at the end of the written lecture, “Miracles, Relics and other Follies” at AtheistScholar.org. The following lecture is one that I never thought I would find necessary to undertake. It is on the concept of miracles, as well the greatest miracle of all- belief in the Shroud of Turin, the alleged burial cloth of Jesus which he left behind when he was resurrected from the dead. I must confess that I had the naïve notion that no one with education in the present day believed the Shroud was authentic. But my husband recently paid a routine visit to his cardiologist. His doctor noticed that my husband was reading a book on the flaws of Intelligent Design, and they chatted about it for a while. Just as the visit ended and the doctor was leaving the room, he suddenly told my husband that the Shroud of Turin had been authenticated and found to be the actual shroud of Jesus. Off the doctor went, leaving my husband with his mouth open in astonishment. My mouth opened in astonishment as well when my husband related what had happened that morning. His doctor is a highly skilled, excellent physician and a well-read man. An hour later, I determined to undertake a lecture on miracles for this series.
