In his article ‘Religious Belief in the Age of Science: An Epistemological Tragedy’ Herman Philipse gives a reply to our critique of his argument in favor of what he calls disjunctive atheism. In this paper we argue that his response seriously fails: disjunctive atheism, as it stands, is still utterly unconvincing. We respond to Philipse’s objection that it is a procedural anomaly to subject the theses and arguments that we find in his book to academic philosophical criteria and we provide some more argumentative evidence for the claim that there is no good reason to accept either (P2) or (P3), two crucial premises in Philipse’s argument.
