Atheism 10: Faith and Foundationalism


Most of these areas seem pretty easy to understand respond to. Plantinga’s case might be, but its trickier no doubt.

The correct answer to Plantinga seems to be that his epistemology leads to an inability to reject absurd beliefs (voodoo, flying spaghetti monster) or contradictory beliefs (reading Bible leads to basic belief that Catholicism is true vs. belief that Protestantism is true).

The question remains for me, what then does count as a good epistemology? Do I need to have a replacement, or can I simply point out flaws in Plantinga’s view that don’t exist in mine, even if mine still have flaws?
