    Fairness and Futility.Toby Betenson - 2016 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 79 (2):101-111.

But there are reasons to be worried about this co-instantiability, as it turns out that, depending on our commitments with respect to certain kinds of knowledge and notions of personhood, it might be the case that no being—God included—could instantiate both. In this paper, I lay out and motivate this claim before going on to consider a variety of responses—some more plausible than (...)
