    All miracles are supernatural by definition, Thomas, unless we are using the term so loosely as to mean ‘unusual [natural] event’. I think our confusing terminology may drive the debate about miracles to some degree, and also our ignorance about what is actually possible according to the natural laws of the universe and what is not.

    Those are all good questions and suggestions regarding the Joshua event. I have no idea what that may all be about. For the hail to be part of the same “sun and moon” event does indicate some major local disruption. For the sun and moon to be visible at once (if that’s what’s implied by the moon ‘stopping’) it would have to be close to sundown, yet the record says midday. So it is very confusing.
