A New Study Finds 79% of Americans Believe in Miracles. Do You?

Believers in miracles often explain good outcomes to catastrophic events as divine intervention. Several survivors of the earthquake in Haiti, for example, said they believe a miracle saved their lives.

So, our question for you today: Do you believe in miracles?
