To Hume is Ehrman

There are countless blogs and websites (or maybe 46,700) that compare and contrast Bart Ehrman's argument that miracles are inherently the least probable historical explanation for any set of evidence with David Hume's Of Miracles.  Amazingly however, no one else ever seems to have come up with the obvious bad pun.


  1. BRAVO! I laughed out loud.

    Still thinking about how I can steal this.

  2. Best of luck to you Eddy.

    When it first occurred to me, I thought that I should write some insightful substantive post about Ehrman and Hume that really warranted the pun as its title. I didn't know how long that would take me though.

  3. That's pretty clever! But if you want to write an insightful substantive post on that particular subject, I think you're going to have to switch to our side. ;)
