|"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."|
-Verbil Kint, The Usual Suspects
Here's how Plantinga clearly spells it out:
(1) On unguided evolution, the probability that our cognitive faculties will be reliable is low
(2) One who accepts unguided evolution and agrees that (1) is true, must conclude that one's cognitive faculties are unreliable.
(3) If one's cognitive faculties are unreliable, then one is in no position to believe any product of one's cognitive faculties, including the belief in unguided evolution
(4) Therefore, the belief in unguided evolution is self-defeating, and can't be rationally accepted.
|The greatest trick evolution ever pulled was convincing naturalists that their beliefs are true |
I don't believe in God either. Maybe I should be afraid of Alvin Plantinga.
