A new study finds we’re not very good at entertaining ourselves.
São coisas como esta que me levam a afastar do meu ateísmo a ponto de soltar um “Meu Deus!”
“In doing science you can’t employ any proposition whose epistemic provenance, for you, includes a proposition you know or believe by faith. But is this really true? Why should we believe it? What is the status of the claim that if what you are doing is science, then you can’t employ, in your work, any proposition you believe or know by faith? Is it supposed to be true by definition? If so, whose definition? Is there a good argument for it? Or what?”
Warranted Christian Belief, note 18, p. 388. This is one of the things I find interesting in Plantinga’s thought: the radical challenge to show how a scientific world-view could be properly defended in opposition to someone who claims to have a special faculty (sensus divinitatis) telling him all these (to us strange) things about the nature of our universe. How do you argue appropriately against someone who tells you there are such things as colours, it just so happens that you are blind? On the other hand, how do you argue against the conspiracy theorist?
