David Hume's essay on miracles is regarded as a major contribution to the debate about miracles

  • He wrote it to convince people that the appeal to miracles could not demonstrate the truth of Christianity or religion in general
  • The essay is in 2 parts
    • Part 1 attempts to show on philosophical grounds that the evidence against the occurrence of a purported miracle strongly outweighs the evidence in favour
