Depends on the definition of "natural", I guess. Beyond the bounds of what we currently understand as the natural world? Yes, absolutely. If it actually happened, that makes it not outside the bounds of nature, I suppose.

Those are very central characteristics to the commonly accepted definition of "God", though. If you throw those out, you are essentially now talking about some other creator or creative force.

Again, if this is true, that's not "God" or gods in the commonly accepted sense.
