I avoid the word altogether because if you say something is miraculous people think you mean a supernatural miracle as opposed to just using it as a word to describe something highly unlikely or not full understood.

My kids tidying their bedrooms. THAT'S a miracle.

I hear ya. A miracle is too wrapped up in religious dogma. Most people believe a miracle is from god. It just seems whether we call it the unknown or a miracle is just semantics.

How you define a miracle depends on your perception on life
An unrewarded kindness shown by another
An event that takes one from a clearly losing position to a victory
An unexplainable event that is used to infer a paticular way of life is advantagous
Maybe those who actually believe in miracles should closely examine what has led up to that event and the thought process behind it.

To those who believe in supernatural miracles, this isn't a semantic issue.

How do you tell a supernatural miracle from one that's not supernatural?

I don't believe in miracles because I don't believe in things that haven't been proven to exist.
