    I find that David Hume's stance on miracles to be very depressing. I see where he is coming from with the fact that there is no hard core evidence to prove that a miracle has happened, but I do not agree with his belief that there are no miracles. Wihtouth the possibility of a miracle happening, how could a mother with a close-to-death child keep fighting for its life? How can a person who was in a head on collision with a semi-truck, wearing no seat belt possibly live? Even though there are no logical explanations for some of the things that happen in the world, miracles happen all around us. I guess what Hume is saying is that he does not think what happens is a miracle, but some other form of an event. In all, I choose to have hope that miracles exist and will happen to each and everyone of us in some way.

    FQ: T/F David Hume was an empiricist.

    DQ: What is your definition of a miracle and do you think it has to do with a superior being such as God?
