My greatest issue with magic/miracles is the evidence (or lack there of).
I think everything comes from something as opposed to somewhere is more accurate?
I'm not sure what you mean here? I'm not into sci fi T.V so not sure how they portray energy, however I would argue that all living things influence energy. We all have mass and mass is energy, everything we do disperses energy to some degree. Essentialy the eels you mentioned are doing just that, they are influencing energy to create an electric current. Also, remember the 1st law of thermodynamics.If I may introduce a few new ideas. To reiterate, I believe everything must come from somewhere. Some bloggers in this post have already acknowledged the possibility of "immortality." Let's look at this example, the increase of the bread and fish miracle. Again, in Star Trek they have replicators diverting energy into matter via a machine. However, an electric eel produces its current without the use of technology. Is it possible that there could be some creatures that can influence energy in this fashion without technology?
I wouldn't call this pseudoscience, more sci fi. Pseudoscience is the likes of astrology and (dare I say it) flatearth delusional conspiracy theories. I do however agree the Sci Fi, Star Trek in particular certainly influences applied sciences.I know this is all pseudo science, but doesn't all science start out this way?
If this were the case it would no longer be called a miracle.I think most people's qualm with miracles are that people claim it comes, again, from "no where," but what if it does come from "somewhere" and it is scientifically explainable?
