The No-Minimum argument and satisficing: a reply to Chris Dragos

Religious Studies 50 (3):379-386 (2014)

Abstract
Chris Dragos has recently presented two objections to criticisms I've published against Peter van Inwagen's No-Minimum argument. He also suggests that the best way to criticize the No-Minimum argument is via the concept of divine satisficing. In this article I argue that both of Dragos's objections fail, and I question whether satisficing is relevant to the viability of the No-Minimum argument
