Hume's Birthday (and Mine)

Today is the 300th anniversary of Hume's birthday. Incidentally, it's my birthday as well. I find it fascinating that our general philosophical outlook and aims largely overlap: we're both mitigated skeptics of sorts (although I go further in extending mitigated skepticism to our knowledge of modality), and we both have large-scale projects aimed at the criticism of traditional theism.

Happy Birthday, Hume!

Happy belated birthday, EA.

Hope somebody treated you to one (if not two or three) of these:!image/3307382479.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_215/3307382479.jpg

Hume's birthday is only 12 days away from mine! The positions of the planets must have destined us to be mitigated skeptics / atheists. lol.
