The deadline has passed for this essay, so I can write a little bit about how much I enjoyed tackling the issue of the circumstances in which someone could be justified in believing in miracles. I found it great fun going through Hume’s Essay on Human Understanding and his neat way of defining a miracle in a way that made it impossible for one to occur.
I also thought it was splendid timing on the part of the people who put the module together that this was the essay being written just before Christmas. The course also runs from February which would put this essay around Easter time. Good work module organisers, good work.
