When miracles are not really miracles

 If miracles transpire within Nature, shouldn't they be deemed ipso facto "natural" (though ill-understood)? 
If miracles emerge outisde of  Nature, how can anything and anyone within Nature's remit and ambit witness them?

as Hume correctly notes, we cannot experience that which happens outside of Nature

But if a highly incredible event does occur it merely limns the limitations of our contemporary knowledge. To use Hume's terminology: it is never a miracle, merely a marvel (or an extraordinary event).
