Hume on religion, part 2

"In a world of miracles, none of which was so clearly miraculous that it would be irrational to claim there was a natural explanation, reason would lead us to the false conclusion that no miracles had ever occurred. We should be sanguine about this. Hume did not believe reason was infallible, but we make fewer mistakes with it than without it."
