"Knowing about God Through Experiences"
People come to have beliefs about God in many ways, some good, and some misguided, producing false or unwarranted beliefs. The question "What are the right ways of knowing about God, the ways that give people true knowledge of God, and which ways produce these false and unwarranted beliefs" is one that contemporary philosophers of Religion ask often. Some believe you don't need reasons or evidence to form beliefs about God, but that certain types of experiences will suffice. In this talk Chris will explain this view and we will discuss its benefits and issues.
