Doctor Who meets David Hume

Doctor Who meets David Hume August 20, 2015

This delightful video explains David Hume’s view of miracles and why you shouldn’t believe in them, using illustrations from Doctor Who. Fantastic!

Of course, as I have pointed out before, this is precisely the point at which Doctor Who sends mixed messages. It regularly expresses disdain for superstition and belief in the supernatural, and yet depicts precisely the same things supposedly happening as a result of wibbly-wobbly reversals of the neutron flow.

When you watch the video, it is definitely worth paying close attention to the details.

Many thanks to Burke Gerstenschlager for drawing the video to my attention on Facebook.
