Baruch Spinoza's approach to the subject of miracles was distinctly naturalistic. Instead of believing that God and nature consisted of separate domains (and that miracles represented supra-natural phenomena), he argued that they were one and the same. Thus, "miracle" is a pseudo-category, and those occurrences that we label with that word are actually natural phenomena whose rational causes are not yet understood.
