This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
It's an interesting article, but I'm not entirely convinced. Like the argument from healing miracles, it presents only one side of the story - successful prophecies (or successful prayers for healing).I think if we are to use the argument from prophecy, we need to also consider the number of prophecies that have not come true (so far) - perhaps even a Bayesian analysis? Also, how much ambiguity there is in the prophecy. If this was done, and the evidence came out "right", then I think there may be a good argument in it.But at present, I think I'd only use it in a very tentative way.
