Abstract
In this article I highlight a tension between Alston's core thesis in his seminal book Perceiving God -that beliefs about God formed on the basis of mystical perception are prima facie justified - and a currently popular method for disarming a certain form of the argument from evil, a method which involves adopting a view known as sceptical theism.
