The aunt of one of the women found alive after having been kidnapped in Cleveland 10 years ago says "If you don’t believe in miracles, I suggest you think again."

Neither of those things is true.

1. No, it's not your "job," but if you make a claim, you should be able to defend or support it—or at the very least, explain it.

2. It's entirely possible that if you make a compelling argument in favor of your claim, I will agree with (or at the very least, understand) your claim. Just because I haven't thought of a position on my own doesn't mean I would never find it legitimate or worthwhile.
