A resurrection would be a miracle because it has never been observed anywhere at any time. There is uniform experience against every miraculous event; otherwise it would not be called miraculous. In so doing, Hume has "exploded the very basis on which he denies the possibility of miracles.
Either we believe in miracles or we believe in the scientific understanding of the laws of nature, but not both - the latter, of course, being, in their view, the only option for the intelligent person. When pressed, many educated Christians are too loyal to deny the virgin birth and the resurrection.
But it embarrasses them because their rational minds know that it is absurd, so they would much rather not be asked.
Lennox comments that what we see as natural laws are not just descriptive, but contain our perception of "the internal logic of a system in terms of cause and effect relationships between its constituent parts. One event follows another; but we never can observe any tie between them. They seem conjoined, but never connected. After he has observed several instances of this nature, he then pronounces them to be connected. What alteration has happened to give rise to this new idea of connection?
Nothing, but that he now feels these events to be connected in his imagination, and can readily foretell the existence of one from the appearance of the other. When we say, therefore, that one object is connected with another, we mean only that they have acquired a connection in our thought Here he is, denying cause and effect, and even denying the reality of the physical world - depicting it as just being in a person's thought!
Lennox's response it that "Hume explicitly denies the idea of necessary connection. He would thus undermine a great deal of modern science, science scientific laws involve precisely what Hume denies - cause-effect descriptions of the workings of a system.
Obviously, the person is aware that the light flash causes the blink.
Research shows that the photon stream from the bulb impinges on the eye, stimulates activity in the optic nerve and excites certain parts of the brain. Science has clearly shown the existence of a complex causal chain. Since he denies that the uniformity of nature can be established, he cannot turn round and use it to disprove miracle. Since he denies necessary causation, he cannot regard nature as described by laws embodying necessary relationships which would preclude miracle.
Belief in miracles in general, and in the New Testament miracles in particular, arose in a primitive, pre-scientific culture in which people were ignorant of the laws of nature and so readily accepted miracle stories.
Now that we know the laws of nature, belief in miracles is impossible. Lennox makes a careful argument from the Bible, particularly Luke, against the perception that people were ignorant of the normal workings of things. Makes a strong historical case against assertion 1 above.
Then makes a good argument that the regular laws of nature do not constrain the Creator of those laws. We should certainly demand strong evidence But this is not the real problem with miracles of the sort found in the New Testament. The real problem is that they threaten the foundations of naturalism, which is clearly Hume's worldview at this point.
That is, Hume regards it as axiomatic that nature is all that there is and there is nothing and no one outside nature that could from time to time intervene in nature.

It is this that he means when he claims that nature is uniform. His axiom, of course, is simply a belief, and not a consequence of scientific investigation. In denying that there is a Creator, the atheists are kicking away the basis of their own position.

This Epilogue is an impressive testimony of faith. It is carefully stated, and of benefit to me because it is something he has obviously thought through over a long period of time. And he has a gift for putting things clearly and succinctly. The rational intelligibility of the universe, for instance, points to the existence of a Mind that was responsible both for the universe and for our minds. After a while I got serious and said quietly to Terry, "I think I can do it.
The Undertaker then made his way to the ring, saw Foley on top of the cell, and also climbed to the top. Both wrestlers then began to fight on the roof of the cell. Francois Pettit, and various others, including Vince McMahonwho broke character by looking legitimately worried about someone Foley that, on-air at least, he was supposed to dislike.

Foley was placed on a stretcher and began to be wheeled out of the arena. Moments later, there was commotion on the entrance ramp as Foley got up from the stretcher and proceeded to make his way back to the cell, climbing to the top of the structure, with the Undertaker doing likewise this time they both climbed the cell surprisingly quickly despite Foley having suffered a dislocated shoulder due to the fall, and the Undertaker wrestling with a broken foot that night.
Earlier as both were walking on the chain-link mesh which comprised the cell's ceiling, the metal fasteners were snapping off causing the roof to sag and partially give way under their combined weight. According to Terry Funk, the prop guy had purposely designed it that way, except it was never meant to give way completely. In response, announcer Jim Ross shouted, "Good God Will somebody stop the damn match?
Terry Funk wrote in his autobiography, "Watching from the back, I thought he was dead. I ran out here and looked down at him, still lying in the ring where he'd landed.
His eyes weren't rolled back in his head, but they looked totally glazed over, like a dead fish's eyes. A Tale of Blood and SweatsocksFoley called it both the best and worst chokeslam he ever took, saying that despite its looks, he would have likely died if he had landed properly. He also cited the fact that the ring onto which he landed had a harder surface than that of modern rings, which stopped his momentum once he landed. Foley would later explain that the roof of the cell was supposed to sag sufficiently so that Undertaker could kick him through, allowing him to dangle by his feet and eventually fall in a rotation to land on his front.
Aftermath and legacy[ edit ] Both wrestlers received a standing ovation for the match. Foley has said that although this match grew in legend, the reality was that his career remained "somewhat sluggish" for sometime afterwards until Foley further developed the Mankind character, and fans began to catch on. Kane won the WWF title, although the match is not considered an official Hell in a Cell match, and Austin won back the belt one night later on the June 29 episode of Raw.
The fourth Hell in a Cell match took place on Raw is War two months later, between tag team champions Mankind and Kane, concluding their alliance. This bout, like the second cell match which was also televised on Raw, involved interference from Undertaker and Austin. Three official Hell in a Cell matches transpiring in the summer of made this particular four-way feud unique, as well as the WWF championship title changing hands within its confines.
