Abstract

In a recent article, Marcel Sarot has enquired into the relevance of the ‘God-spot’ (e.g. five spots in the brain that are being activated when people have an experience of the divine) for the rationality of belief in God. In our article, we argue, first, that the objections Sarot presents against an argument aiming to show that the existence of the God-spot is in some sense evidence for the reliability of religious experience, are not convincing. We argue, second, that Sarot’s claim that the existence of the God-spot poses a problem for Reformed Epistemology is ill-motivated since it rests on an inadequate view of Reformed Epistemology.
