LINK: “But Theists Do It Too: An Objection To Plantinga’s EAAN” by Jimmy Licon

Abstract: In this paper, I present an objection to Plantinga’s evolutionary argument against naturalism called the theistic parity reply. Since traditional theism holds there is a great deal about the thoughts/intentions of God that is unknown to his creations, it could be that God desires that his subjects lack doxastic reliability for some good, unknown to them. If such a scenario cannot be blocked by the theist, then she must admit the probability her cognitive faculties are reliable is inscrutable; thus she would be rationally required to relinquish all of her beliefs, including her theistic belief.
