About me
I'm a grad student and instructor in philosophy at Baylor University. This year, I am completing the fifth and final year of my contract with Baylor. Last spring, I defended my dissertation (details below), directed by Jon Kvanvig. Trent Dougherty, Alex Pruss, and Todd Buras were also on my committee. I teach Philosophy of Death and Dying at McLennan Community College and Contemporary Ethical Issues at Baylor. My interests include epistemology, ethics, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion. I love to travel, try new food, mountain bike, play games (e.g. Settlers of Catan), and spend time with my family.

    Religious epistemology is the study of how subjects' religious beliefs might have, or fail to have, some form of positive epistemic status (such as knowledge, justification, warrant, rationality, etc.). The current debate is focused upon the kind of basis upon which a religious believer might rationally hold certain beliefs about God (whether God exists, what attributes God has, what God is doing, etc.). Engaging this issue are three groups of people who call themselves "fideists," "reformed epistemologists," and "evidentialists." Each group (...)

This is because reflection doesn’t have any special powers above what unreflective processes have, and, in fact, reflection isn’t even different in kind from unreflective processes. We don’t learn all of this, though, until the end of the book. In the beginning, Kornblith gives two arguments against views that afford reflection a special power that unreflective processes don’t have. He (...)

  3. Chris Tweedt (2013). Splitting the Horns of Euthyphro's Modal Relative. Faith and Philosophy 30 (2):205-212.
    There is a modal relative of Euthyphro’s dilemma that goes like this: are necessary truths true because God affirms them, or does God affirm them because they’re true? If you accept the first horn, necessary truths are as contingent as God’s free will. If you accept the second, God is less ultimate than the modal ontology that establishes certain truths as necessary. If you try to split the horns by affirming that necessary truths are somehow grounded in God’s nature, Brian (...)
