Divine Hiddenness: Are Glimpses Enough?

Charity Anderson

This talk is from the session on philosophy, the third breakout session of the 2018 Experiencing Life with God Conference, an academic conference hosted by the Martin Institute of Westmont College and Renovaré. Here is Charity Anderson's description: This talk challenges an assumption in the literature concerning the problem of divine hiddenness, namely, that the following are inconsistent: God’s making available adequate evidence for belief that he exists and the existence of non-culpable nonbelievers. I draw on the notions of defeated evidence and glimpses to depict the complexity of our evidential situation with respect to God’s existence.
