    David Hume (1711-1776) represented the culmination of the British philosophy of sense-experience. Although he lived in the age of reason, Hume had profound doubts about our ability to know anything in the world with certainty. This skepticism colored his view of science and gave rise to his devastating attack on proofs of the existence of God.

Meanwhile, some theologians have challenged the "truth" of any religion with the radical view that all beliefs are equally true.
