If miracles existed, all the "people" who call themselves religious would not be the prejudiced, divided, hate filled, diversionary, war mongering terrorist in the world. Religion is the bane of society. You never see Atheist calling for war. So we don't need miracles. Hey pray for god to stop ISIS tonight, see what happens. Yeah you got it, absolutely nothing. Believing in god is deterministic, I believe in free will or better yet, "will to Power"(Nietzsche). Read Philosophy and expand your mind not freeze it with fear and conspiracies.

The will to power (German: der Wille zur Macht) is a prominent concept in the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. The will to power describes what Nietzsche may have believed to be the main driving force in humans – achievement, ambition, and the striving to reach the highest possible position in life.

By God you probably mean some kind of fundamental truth. Like gravity, or that time moves forward. First, if I saw a "miracle", I would assume that it's an illusion, a trick. I would try to understand how this really is possible. Call it scientific scepticism. Second, if truly this was no trick. Say, if my great grand-parents were resurrected, I would come to the conclusion that I made wrong assumptions about the world I exist in. In this case I would start assuming that death is not final. I still don't see what this has to do with God. Is gravity God? Is life and death, God? Is me connecting with my wife because of a late train, also God? Is mosquito that keeps me awake at night, God? God? I don't know what you're talking about.

Throwback: The only "miracle" you have ever witnessed is anyone taking what you say seriously.
