The Overrated Hume and the Argument from Design

Oh well, David Hume's reputation as a philosopher is so bloated and overrated anyway...

Cleanthes would wonder, in turn, why it's valid to criticize theological concepts as ad hoc, while it's simultaneously permissible to postulate the existence of universes whose existence is entirely unproven and which may be forever untestable. He'd also wonder why the order in the universe is such a pressing scientific problem as to justify postulating a vast number of alternate universes but not to justify postulating an intelligent designer.-David Hume and the Argument from Design
