For the religious, the cause is pre-concluded as God

The Cause is God

For the religious, the miraculous event is the end of an investigation, not the start of one. The “proof” is the action, and the cause is pre-concluded as being attributable to the Divine. For the religious, the next step is the interpretation of the occurrence, not an examination of its instigation.
