Arguments from History and Miracles
God has good reason to bring about various particular historical events, including occasional miracles in the sense of violations of laws of nature (for example as answers to prayer or to show his approval of some particular teaching). He has good reason to become incarnate in order to provide atonement for human sin, to reveal to us important truths, and to identify with our suffering; and good reason to show that he has done this by a super-miracle such as the Resurrection. If there is no God, such violations are not to be expected. Hence, violations in the right sort of circumstances are further evidence of the existence of God.
