•David Hume’s argument has been quite influential in the history
of Western thought.
•But it has recently come under severe attack from philosophers.
•Hume claims that universal human experience is against miracles by
rejecting all miracle reports, which are not themselves
•Hume advises us to reject all current miracle reports, so we would not
recognize one even if it actually occurred.
•This is not a very good way to find out what has really happened!
