Re: [asa] God disproven by science?

May I suggest that there is a further problem. Glenn Morton reported that
he was in an airport and found himself trying to witness to an Iranian,
if I recall correctly. It was certainly one who did not understand
English well. Just then a bilingual man came along, making communication
straightforward. Was the arrival of the translator a miracle or a
coincidence? Can anyone give an unambiguous answer?
