Sceptical theism and divine truths

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Sceptical theism has been employed by its adherents in an argument aimed at undermining the so called 'noseeum inference'. Erik Wielenberg (2010) has recently argued that there is an equally plausible argument for the conclusion that sceptical theism implies that we do not know any proposition that has word-of-God justification only. Thus, sceptical theists need to give up their argument against the noseeum inference or accept the conclusion that we do not know any proposition that has word-of-God justification only. I claim that sceptical theists need not face such a difficult choice because the argument that Wielenberg offers is not as plausible as their argument against the noseeum inference.
