It is argued that, though the discovery of the ‘God spot’ adds to the analogy between sensory perception and religious experience, it is of no avail in establishing the reliability of religious experience, because the main difference between sensory perception and religious experience (i.e., that sensory perception can be ‘calibrated’ while religious experience cannot) remains unchanged. He also argues that religious experience is much more central to Reformed Epistemology than Van Woudenberg and Blaauw admit, because – as Alvin Plantinga has shown – religious propositions that are properly basic in a strict sense mostly are reports of religious experiences.
