Attorneys use experts in two ways. First is the traditional use of an expert as a witness in court. In this role, scientists, business people, or others with technical knowledge are retained by attorneys primarily for their opinions (oral, written, or both), ultimately to be given at deposition and in civil and criminal courts. Second, the expert may be used as a pre-trial consultant or more specifically as an undisclosed consultant

"Miracles" reveals truth from Scripture, science and life. Everything that is or was or is to come is part of God's miracle. Science says that nothing is miraculous- Time and Chance created the universe with no meaning or purpose. God's universe has great meaning extending from the stars to atoms and to you. What we believe about miracles can be a source of great joy or missed joy in our lives. Dr. Brown, a Christian and author of over 100 scientific papers, has coined a new word, synscicretism, to call attention to the doctrine that today elevates science above religion. Science works best for the great "how" questions, but poorly for the great "why" of all things.
