While miracles were once highly esteemed sources of awe and inspiration, now they are likely to be viewed with skepticism or fanaticism. Some miracles are revealed to be hoaxes while many others are still unresolved and inexplicable. Real miracles are hard to discern from the fake, but it doesn’t make them any less intriguing.
Miracles can be an assortment of resurrections, visions, healing wounds and transformations, among many other things. What makes something a true miracle is the fact that the process of how the event occurred usually cannot be explained through logic, and is attributed to a supernatural power, or strong luck. Any human with a healthy curiosity would want to see a miracle, either to dissect its illogical factors or to find something to believe in.
Some miracles have completely transformed the lives and faiths of many and have led to the formation of whole religions. Luckily, in this modern age it is much easier to disprove fake miracles, or hoaxes performed deliberately through science, and a better understanding of illusions and substances. A man claiming to hear the voice of God centuries ago would be hailed a prophet, now there is a huge possibility he could be thrown into a mental asylum. But what about the miracles that haven’t been disproved or explained yet? Here they are.

A world-renowned miracle, Malala was a young Pakistani girl who was an activist for women’s and girls’ rights and was very vocal with her message. The Taliban grew aggravated with her mission and influence to the point where they ordered her assassination, and Malala was shot in the neck and head while riding a van. However, a month later Malala had mostly recovered and there were no reports of significant brain damage at all. She was back to her mission and more determined than ever to help women and girls like her.
