"A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence. … no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavors to establish." (D. Hume, An Enquiry Concerning the Human Understanding, 1748/ 1777 ed., X 'Of Miracles', para. 87: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/9662/9662-h/9662-h.htm.)
I guess my follow up question would be, what is the epistemology of science?
Also, I am curious as to how the epistemology of science has changed over time. Are there any books/readings on how science's epistemology has changed?
