Abstract

The objective of this presentation is to defend David Hume’s argument presented in On Miracles. By using the definitions provided in the text, the aim is to show that indeed the argument that we ought not believe miracles have occurred is logically sound and relevant. Further, by adding Hume’s argument regarding causation this presentation will show that this further validates the miracle argument.
