Here’s a fun question to play with. Perhaps you know that Peter Boghossian calls on his followers to substitute out the word “faith” whenever they see it, and replace it with “pretending to know what you cannot know.” For example, “The righteous shall live by pretending to know what they cannot know.”
Now, I don’t think much of that, for multiple reasons I don’t need to repeat here. And I thought I was done with Boghossian for a while. But then I thought, We could have some fun with this.
I’d like a volunteer to Boghossify this for me that way, please.
Abe has faith. Does Abe have any evidence for his faith, or is he just pretending to know what he cannot know?
And then I’d like you to tell me the answer to that question, and what led you to that conclusion. Important: be careful to Boghossify before you move on to your answer!
