The End of the Teapot Argument for Atheism (and All Its Tawdry Imitators)

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Atheists sometimes use Bertrand Russell's teapot argument, and its variants with other objects in place of the teapot, to argue for the rationality of atheism. In this paper I show that this use of the teapot argument and its variants is unacceptably circular. The circularity arises because there is indirect evidence against the objects invoked in the arguments.
