Proof of even one real miracle?
The only tangible evidence of higher intelligence was banned in the late sixtes.

I was just listening to a documentary about Moses last night. It was explaining the possibilities of the parting of the sea and the plagues. Apparently there is evidence of a super tsunami at about that time frame, something about the waters recede...I was doing other things while listening...... and evidence of a volcano eruption also that would of turned the water red....hope it come on again as it sounded very interesting. I don't think anyone can actually "prove" a miracle in the supernatural sense.

And as twitchy posted, you can look at the tons of information that we hold in DNA as a miracle, or as a evolutionary process, based on coincidence and natural selection.
Say you’re carrying 10 boxes of scrabble and you fell down causing all boxes to open and all the letters to fall on the ground. You stand up and see the letters made a nice poem on the ground. If such thing happen, do you see it as coincidence or miracle?
DNA is not just 10 boxes of scrabble letters, it is millions of information that come together and make sense.

I don't think this is proof positive, but I see them every day in my life. Most important one is my son. All children are miraculous, but my son is even more so.
His birth was traumatic, he had sever hypoxia, apgars of 1 and 3(very very bad) was ventilated, had immature lungs, seizures in the NICU, the list goes on
At a year old, he had some delays so a MRI was ordered. His entire white matter is damaged, on both sides, his corpus callosum is thinned also. That sort of MRI is indicative of a child who will never walk, talk, feed themself. Basically the white matter controls motor development
At 5, he participates in Karate, plays with the other kids on the monkey bars, swings, runs, jumps, reads, writes, is amazing at a gameboy and is pretty darn normal. He does walk with one of his feet turned in a bit, but that is it. Basically that will be solved with orthopedic surgery later
There were many entire churches praying for this child when he was born. Even when the entire delivery room was going nuts and teams of doctors were freaking out, even though I could hear he had no heart beat or breath sounds over and over(aka not alive) I had a huge sense of peace. I KNEW that he was going to be ok. Just as I knew(and told the OB that a regular delivery would cause a cord accident as he is a twin) I knew he was going to be ok.
Him screaming and running through the house with his sister and their dog is proof enough of a mircale for me. It may not fit someone else's bill, but it sure does mine!
