And on the *value* that we assign to those who can 
perform miracles. If we consider them somehow linked
to what's important -- enlightenment -- then it's
possible to make a mental link. "This guy/gal can do
miracles; therefore he/she is enlightened; therefore
I should do whatever he/she says."

Fortunately, since I've seen a *lot* of miracles in
my life, I never made that association. Miracles are
just miracles; in my opinion they indicate absolutely
*nothing* about the miracle-worker's state of con-
sciousness or ability to help one realize enlighen-
ment. Therefore they're just entertainment.

But *as* entertainment, they can be really smokin'...  :-)
