Who's Open-Minded?

This from Craig Keener: "Signs [of a miraculous nature] were accorded high evidential value in antiquity. That the modern Western educated elite tends to denigrate them is more a commentary on our culture than theirs; most cultures in the world today (virtually all cultures not influenced by deistic rationalism or atheistic Marxism) accept diverse forms of supernatural activity. Thus those who reject miracles merely on the basis of philosophical a prioris may do so as ethnocentric dogmatists rather than as genuinely open-minded intellectuals."
