Question of the Day: David Hume

It seems I have a Scottish theme going today, with the previous post on a lectureship at the University of Glasgow and here a quote, a question from the famed Scottish philosopher, David Hume:

If no camels had been created for the use of man in the sandy deserts of Africa and Arabia, would the world have been dissolved?

(David Hume, Dialogues concerning Natural Religion, Part VIII)
