When god performs miracles does he use superior technology or magic?
I am making a distinction here not made by Mr Arthur C Clarke. Superior technology is just manipulating the real world using real world forces and energies, measurable and in accordance with physical laws, doing the sort of thing that we do ourselves only better. Magic is subverting physical laws; that is working outside of the rules that we are forced to work with.
When god helps Moses with his magic tricks and plagues or Jesus with healing, raising the dead, turning water into wine, extending loves and fishes, walking on water is he sticking to the rules or making it up as he goes along?
