  1. Coincidence. Non-religious people experience miracles, too. I’m thinking of things like cancer remission, not what would be a true miracle—something like an amputee being cured!

I've been fortunate that, while I grew up in a fundamentalist church in a mainstream (but not Baptist) denomination, when I moved to another state and joined another church of the same denomination, it turned out to be a liberal church. My shift from fundamentalist to liberal wasn't a result of the liberal church (in fact, I was shocked at "liberal" elements, like a woman in the church saying she didn't attend a certain function because it was too "Bible-y"), but what has happened is that as I've left belief in God behind (which happened in my mid-50's)
