Creationism is more defensible The view that inference can create justification is more defensible than most people give it credit for.
[Ed. note: So the hypertext is supposed to pique interest, but judging from my inbox, it’s also apt to incite incredulity and hostility on the part of some who can’t be bothered to click and see what it’s actually about! Don’t judge a paper by its hyperlink.]
[Later ed. note: I give up on the original pun. It was doomed from the start. I guess there’s some poetic justice in that. Out of an abundance of caution, abstract below.]
Abstract: I defend the unpopular view that inference can create justification. I call this view inferential creationism. Inferential creationism has been favored by infinitists, who think that it supports infinitism. But it doesn’t. Finitists can and should accept creationism.
