2 Lk. 11:33-3633“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
3 34Your eye is the lamp of your body 34Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.
4 35See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.
5 36Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.”Luke 11:33-36
6 Alvin Plantinga’s formula The formula: (as given by Alvin Plantinga)Where P is probability;N is naturalism,E is current evolutionary theoryandR is the proposition that our cognitive faculties are reliable,P(R/N&E) is low
7 (1) P(R/N&E) is low.(2) One who accepts N&E and also sees that (1) is true has a defeater for R.(3) This defeater can’t be defeated.(4) One who has a defeater for R has a defeater for any belief she takes to be produced by her cognitive faculties, including N&E.(5) N&E is self-defeating and can’t be rationally accepted.
