  • Strengths of Hume
    • Miracles surrounded by atmosphere of hysteria and gullable people- psycological influence
    • Insuffeint number of witnesses
    • Stories are overexaggerated- sell fast
    • He was an empiricist- question of truth based on past experience
    • Relies on logic and reasoning- credibilty challenged for miracles- past relies on human testimony- can't verify them/ credibility
    • Reasonable to believe in laws that are broken- more rational to distrust testimony about a miracle
    • Anothony Flew: Claims that evidence for extraordinary events but not events brought by God- Mind power over body- right conditions
