Epistemological considerations concerning skeptical theism

Faith and Philosophy 25 (2):172-176 (2008)
Abstract
The thesis of this short paper is that skeptical theism does not look very plausible from the perspective of a common sense epistemology. A corollary of this isthat anyone who finds common sense epistemology plausible and is attracted to skeptical theism has some work to do to show that they can form a plausiblewhole. The dialectical situation is that to the degree that this argument is a strong one, to that same degree (at least) the theorist who would like to combinecommon sense epistemology with skeptical theism has some work to do
