How do you feel about the concept of miracles?
A person could bet 100,000 dollars at 12 to one odds and turn that into 1,200,000 and if the person continued to bet it all every time at 12 to one before they did it twelve times they would have a net-worth larger than the richest man living today. As fast as a casino works this feat could be done in less than an hour (not counting for the switching of dealers etc.) Someone might call that a “miracle” but there is math that it is “possible”. I know that it has never happened but I do know it is possible. I do believe in miracles and have a definition for it I would like your thoughts:
1-How do you define miracle?
2-What do you think of the mathematical likelihood of a miracle is?
3-Have you experienced a miracle that few others have experienced that you are willing to share?
4-Are miracles better off not being considered because they are not going to happen often enough to be relevant in most lives anyways?

My definition of miracle:
My theory is referred to as the box car – box car theory- If you look at a dice if you put two of them next to each other they kind of look like box cars – then add the number of times as twelve and you come up with 12X12. I start to consider things beyond those odds as being potential miracles.
Think about roulette and the 30 times odds and how fast that can work. One of the key traits for a gambler in gamblers anonymous I have read about is that it is common for a person in a gamblers anonymous to have experienced a gambling incident where they made more than a years income in less than a day. Could people that are too connected with seeking out miracles capable of becoming “miracle” addicts and looking for miracles to “bail” them out?
I have also heard things like the observer effect – by someone tracking something that it changes its behavior – So since I am sharing this wonderful idea of how to beat the billionaires should I share in the profits and you the commenters here… do you feel that by “creating and observer effect” you are also entitled to a share of the person that does beat out a billionaire with a gambling “miracle”? Did we just create a miracle?
