David Hume was one of the leading figures of the Scottish enlightenment, probably best known for his empiricist philosophy. His system of thought precluded any possibility of there actually being a Deity such as portrayed in established religions. Even on his deathbed, when his friends were urging him to renounce the Devil, he never wavered, instead coming up with this terrific one-liner.
