Can religious beliefs be held to be properly basic?
There are two different ways of approaching this question in Christian Philosophy: one which employs reason, and one which rejects it in favour of experience.
Evidentialism simply says that beliefs must be supported by some sort of reasonable evidence.
If I believe that the moon is made of green cheese, this is hardly rational. If I don't want people to think i'm severely disturbed bu believing the moon to be chedder, then equally I need to find rational basis for belief in God to avoid being thought barking.
