Hume lived before fundamentalism, of course, that later product of modernity when some religious people made the mistake of thinking that belief needed to be founded on the same certain grounds to which science appeals. The lust for certainty is the dark side of the theological free market and religious pluralism. However, it is here that Obama’s speech is such good news.
