Pearced Off! #10 – How Much Evidence To Believe in God Is Twisting Your Arm?

Pearced Off! #10 – How Much Evidence To Believe in God Is Twisting Your Arm? October 31, 2020

I am running a series of the old podcast segments from my Pearced Off! section of the Skepticule Podcast (a British skepticism-based podcast now on hiatus) that I used to contribute to. Some of the earlier ones have some quieter audio. Apologies. They run at around ten minutes. Something to keep you company outside of Netflix and the news…

Please subscribe to my channel if you can be arsed. One day, I might get to 1000 subscribers when they allow monetisation. Until then, it’s a labour of love.

This segment is on the amount of evidence needed to make one believe something – very much concerning doxastic voluntarism as previously discussed.

Here’s the thing – we often hear that God wouldn’t put a cross on the moon as overwhelming evidence for his existence because it is just too overwhelming and doesn’t give people the “choice” to believe. But this is thoroughly problematic, as discussed in this video:

These and other questions and problems are expressed in my book The Little Book of Unholy Questions (UK). Please grab a copy.
