Group 2 Section 12
We had a very small group attendance today, but once we were joined by Dr. Oliver and a couple floaters, the conversation begin rolling. The major topic we discussed today was on Hume and his thoughts of miracles. Our floater posed the question to the group, and a group member suggested a miracle is something that defies a law of nature. Hume believed, according to Dr.Oliver, that there is always a natural law explanation (or another reason) for what people believed to be miracles. Elizabeth posed the scenario that what if a person with terminal cancer (who's doctor said there was nothing that can be done) miraculously healed. Apparently, Hume would assume that the person was more likely misdiagnosed rather than magically healed. However, I think its nice to believe in miracles; it gives us hope sometimes when we need it most.
Anyways, see you guys Monday! Have a good rest of the week!
