With the progression of time, our understanding of the world around us increases with each scientific development. Events 2000 years ago with no explanation can now, in the 21st century be explained; No longer thought of as 'miracles'. Even if there are elements that we don't currently understand I believe, with the advancement of technology, science and philosophical thought, an explanation will be arrived at. For instance, it is often referred to as the 'miracle of birth' because even our best fertility specialists don't understand every step of the way between conception and birth. However, advancements are made every day in this field, narrowing down the limitations of our knowledge.

A miracle such as the immaculate conception necessarily requires an act of faith to be believed. Since we already know that the process of conception requires the mother's egg and the father donating his seed. Mary's baby was conceived without the late. Knowing the natural repeatable process, it is down to each individual to believe or not in God's intervention. I am of the seeing (or understanding) is believing mind.
