Elias Vasquez sez:
So if A and B demonstrate that it is possible to violate the barriers of the natural world by accurately predicting and fulfilling something
Which is a big "IF" . . .
That still does not eliminate the barriers of the natural world which was just violated?
Assuming for the sake of argument that you could demonstrate something which appeared to "violate the barriers of the natural world," that would at most be a data point in favor of /that thing/ violating the natural order. It would /not/ be evidence that some /other thing/ also violated the natural order.
Let's place this back within the natural order. Over the ages there have been a number of half-baked folk theories as to how certain things in the world worked. It was thought that the sun revolved around a stationary earth, and that explained sunrise and sunset. It was thought that flies spontaneously generated from rotting meat. It was thought that fire required the presence of a mysterious substance called "pholgiston".
These things were believed to be part of the natural order, even though all were later shown to be incorrect. When Copernicus produced a viable mathematical model for the heliocentric universe, he showed that heliocentricity was plausible -- but that said nothing about spontaneous generation, which had to wait another 120 years to be overthrown by Redi's experiments. And phlogistron theory persisted for most of another century after that.
-If- you could show unambiguous empirical evidence of accurate prognostication (which I don't think you can), what you will have shown is that _prognostication_ may be possible -- which says nothing about _resurrection_ claims.
