Not really. I've read about them, but they always seemed to be written by the faithful. Like I mentioned before, miracles are in the eye of the beholder. I've, personally, never seen one. But I've seen things other people thought were cures and miracles. I'm not by nature a believer. When I see a miracle, I always wonder what I'm really looking at. So far I've always found a less spiritual explanation for what I see. Nobody I've seen throw his crutches away really needed them in the first place. Broken legs heal whether you pray over them or not.
