I'm not so sure. For it's perfectly possible to read the Dialogues, see Philo as closest to Hume, since Philo is the sceptic, and then see that Philo admits that the reasons for and against the existence of God ultimately hang in the balance: ‘[I] believe that the arguments on which it is established exceed the objections which lie against it,’ he concludes. This would suggest that Hume is certainly against organized religion but is an agnostic when it comes to the particular question of God.


By far my favorite interview yet!
