Sorry about the laxness in terminology. They were miraculously caused to grow. I 
think his point was that he is disturbed by the second creative/formative type of 
miracle. I was trying to emphasize that I believe there were two miracles involving 
plants. I should have said, specially formed, rather than specially created.
