Ahmed, Arif. “Hume and the Independent Eyewitnesses”, Mind (first published online August 2015). The paper offers a reply to the “independent witnesses” criticism raised by Earman, McGrew, et al. Here’s the abstract:
The Humean argument concerning miracles says that one should always think it more likely that anyone who testifies to a miracle is lying or deluded than that the alleged miracle actually occurred, and so should always reject any single report of it. A longstanding and widely accepted objection is that even if this is right, the concurring and non-collusive testimony of many witnesses should make it rational to believe in whatever miracle they all report. I argue that on the contrary, even multiple reports from non-collusive witnesses lack the sort of independence that could make trouble for Hume.
