For this is also a miracle, not onely to produce effects against, or above Nature, but before Nature; and to create Nature as great a miracle, as to contradict or transcend her.

I hold that God can doe all things, how he should work contradictions I do not understand, yet dare not therefore deny.

Thomas Browne (1605-1682) English physician and author
