Oh, interesting.Actually, in my view QT's chaos theory argument makes sense, in the sense that if you do have phenomena ostensibly deterministic but chaotic (in the sense that an arbitrarily small perturbation of initial conditions dramatically change the final outcome), then this means that non-deterministic events, or circumventions of physical laws, can be generated in a way which is not measurable by any scientific method. Or in other words – you can generate a miracle while never breaking a physical law to a measurable degree.
Funny that you should mention miracles because I went to church and something very bad happened to one of the members of the church. Their step-brothers son drowned which is really really sad because he was only like 2 years old. I happen to have a similar thing happen to me when I was young that involved a pool, but I digress. Anyways, then something particularly tragic happened and that was that the father of the son was reportedly dead because he wanted to kill himself because of the grief. Well, When we heard this in church, it was asked for someone to pray for this person. I volunteered and I don't remember the whole prayer but I remember the beginning and the end of it. The beginning went something like "Lord, we know your grace covers all things..." and it ended with, "I pray you would breath life into this, in Jesus name amen." Suicide is a topic near to me because I've lived through 2 of my peers doing it and I've seen how bad it hurts the families. BUT we find out through a group text sometime later that the father was revived at the hospital. Now, note that I wasn't specifically praying that God would bring someone back to life, but I was praying that God would breath life into that situation. I was thinking at the time I was using symbolic language to give some hope to the situation, but God took my request and did a miracle. And yes, he was actually reported dead that Sunday morning and then he was revived somehow. I don't know the details, just what I have shared.
