The problem with such skeptics is that they assume to know reality so well that they can know what is possible and what is not possible without any examination of the facts. The result of this is of course baseless arrogance. In past generations, claims that an iron ship could fly in the air, that a person would land on the moon, or that it would be possible to talk through a small device with a person thousands of miles, away would have sounded unfounded.
But it turns out that reality surpasses all imagination, and what in the past was considered fairy tales and sorcery, is revealed in the present or in the future as completely realistic. The same attitude, therefore, works in the opposite direction: It is possible that many descriptions from the past, about miracles, spells, and supernatural events, which sound unrealistic in our generation, were certainly true in those ancient generations. The universe is a large and mysterious place, and who pretends to determine with certainty what is possible and what is not possible in our universe now or in the past?
