I hope I'm not hijacking the flow of convo, but I'm currently reading something and ran into trouble. It has been bugging me for 3 days now.

The phrase is: 後付けで奇跡認定したくなるようなコトの積み重ねの上に今日があるっつーかね

I think I'm being thrown off by all theの particles used. How is this sentence even read and what does it mean?

Please let me know if this needs to go someplace else.

後から振り返ってみると奇跡と認定したくなるようなコトの積み重ねの結果、今日があるというかね makes more sense?
の are all ordinary possession particle there.

Toritabe, first of all, thanks for taking a stab at it. The line was lifted directly from the source material written by a Japanese author. I was very confused trying to read this sentence because of the double の particles used, and I guess I don’t really understand the meaning very well. What does 奇跡認定 actually mean?

Thank you, I think I have a better grasp of how to read it now. :)
