Gil likes to discover stuff by talking to himself:

On the subject of miracles, I once asked myself, “Self, what is a miracle?” The answer seemed obvious: an event with no naturalistic explanation or cause.

Then it suddenly dawned on me: The origin of the universe was a miracle, by definition. The origin of the universe could not possibly have a naturalistic explanation or cause, because nature did not exist until the universe came into being.

We therefore have logical and empirical verification of at least one miracle, and on the grandest scale imaginable.

Yep.  That's stupid alright.

Sweet Jesus, that's dumb.  Travel back in time a few hundred years and that same argument can be used to prove that lightning and earthquakes are also miracles.
