Background

Another aspect to Babbage's view on miracles, he was responding in this chapter of his book to a man called Hume who said they didn't exist

 

A description of the experience

 from The Ninth Bridgewater Treatise: A fragment - Charles Babbage
A priori argument in favour of the occurrence of miracles

 In this chapter I shall prove that:

It is more probable that any law, at the knowledge of which we have arrived by observation, shall be subject to one of those violations which, according to Hume's definition, constitutes a miracle, than that it should not be so subjected
