'Miracle Detectives' Investigate Mysteries, Discuss Taboo Topics (VIDEO)

Do you believe in miracles? There've been stories since the beginning of time documenting events that can't always be explained rationally or scientifically, but what does that really mean?

'Miracle Detectives' (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on OWN) is a documentary series that teams a scientist and a believer who investigate mysteries around the country to try to determine if they are, in fact, miracles.

I caught up with Randall Sullivan -- an author and journalist who claims to have witnessed a miracle firsthand while travelling as a war correspondent in Bosnia -- and his partner Indre Viskontas, who has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and is more skeptical.

Watch and listen to both sides of the very polarizing debate and decide: Which side are you on?

I've watched a few episodes with my girlfriend (this is the only even remotely interesting show on OWN) and found it to be a big waste of time. This isn't like Decoded or Mythbusters, it's basically a politically correct version where they do very little detecting and mostly just look for "miracles".

The 9/11 firefighters one was the most ridiculous. The man was clearly having a hallucination brought on by the incredible stress of being at the crash site, but they didn't want to offend him or other victims of that horrible attack so they said "we'll never know...". Yes you do know. People in stressful situations will manifest a hallucination of whichever diety they were raised to believe in to help them cope with the pain they are feeling. This is how nearly all born-agains come to be, they hallucinate because they are suffering in some way, they are "saved" and then they basically live the rest of their life with a mental illness that people are too scared to point out.
