Who has the burden of proof in a debate between a theist and anatheist? Antony Flew (1984) thinks it is the theist. By his lights,the theist and atheist can agree on a whole base line of truths (suchas the findings of the physical sciences). The question thenbecomes, Why go any further? Flew wields a version ofOckham's razor, arguing that if one has no reason to go further, onehas reason not to go further. (As it happens, Flew has subsequentlyclaimed that there are good reasons for going beyond the naturalworld, and he is currently a theist; see Flew 2008.) His challenge hasbeen met on various fronts, with some critics claiming that Flew'sburden of proof argument is wedded to an outmoded foundationalism,that any burden of proof is shared equally by atheists and theists, orthat the theist has an array of arguments to help shoulder a greaterburden of proof. The position of fideism is a further option. Fideismis the view that religious belief does not require evidence and thatreligious faith is self-vindicating. Karl Barth (1886–1968)advocated a fideistic philosophy. (For a critical assessment offideism, see Moser 2010, chapter 2.) Hick and Plantinga need not beconsidered fideists because of the high role each gives to experience,coherence, and reflection.

The strict empiricist account of meaning was also charged asmeaningless on the grounds that there is no coherent, clear, basiclevel of experience with which to test propositional claims. Theexperiential “given” is simply too malleable (thishas been called “the myth of the given”), often reflectingprior conceptual judgments and, once one appreciates the open-texturedcharacter of experience, it may be proposed that virtually anyexperience can verify or provide some evidence for anything. Amystic might well claim to experience the unity of a timeless spiriteverywhere present. Ayer allowed that in principle mysticalexperience might give meaning to religious terms. Those whoconcede this appeared to be on a slippery slope leading from empiricalverificationism to mystical verificationism (Alston 1991). Agrowing number of philosophers in the 1960s and 1970s were led toconclude that the empiricist challenge was not decisive. Criticalassessments of positivism can be found in work by, among others, AlvinPlantinga, Richard Swinburne, and John Foster.
