An argument from religious experience seeks use certain experiences of individuals to provide weight to the hypothesis that God exists. There are several important considerations, however:
- Many people from different religious backgrounds make claims to religious experience
- An individual’s experience cannot examined by others
These two facts make these types of arguments difficult for general use. However, if the person making the claim is trustworthy and level-headed, a person might be persuaded that their claims are relevant. But any such arguments rely totally upon the trustworthiness of the person making the claim.
