Knowledge and Belief
November 24, 2008, 7:56 am
Filed under: Christian Doctrine, Epistemology

It was pointed out to me, recently, that you can know something and not believe it.  This seems right to me.  But then the standard account of what constitutes knowledge–justified true belief–is wrong.

He also noted that faith is properly rooted in knowledge, and the fact that the usual suspects (Dawkins, Dennet, Harris) take faith to be otherwise is a sign they are basically confused (embarrassingly so) on the issues pertaining to knowledge and faith.  Which isn’t to say they aren’t in good company.
