Well, I recognize God's miracles as "supernatural", He can certainly do them when
He pleases, according to the counsel of his perfect all-knowing will. We are
talking about the stablished order of created nature that follows natural laws
designed by Him and in which he can intervene supernaturally anytime; we are not
limiting God.

Since in the last 100 years the "obvious works of God" have been explained
scientifically people/scientists think/believe that God is not longer responsible
(this assumes that God can only operate thru misteries, but not so). I think the
ID people are entrenching themselves in corners where nature appears not to have
a possible naturalistic explanation, so God must have done. This is sad. What
we as christians should promote is that all nature is God's, all is his work, and
all shows his signature (ID) (Psalm 19:1-4).
