  • David Hume
    • All our knowledge can be reduced to some experience that our senses have provided
    • We think we know a lot more about the external world than we actually do
    • We allow imagination to make a connection between cause and effect
    • Aquinas is wrong to make a connection between cause and effect
    • Therefore does not prove God caused the universe to exist
    • Universe does not have to have a beginning, but if it did, does not mean anything caused it
    • No experience of the creation of the universe so cannot speak meaningfully of it
    • Wasn't sufficient evidence to prove the cause of the universe or even that the universe was created
