Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Religious beliefs: in contrast to other beliefs, religious beliefs are usually not subject of a questioning. Thus, for example, this is not about the probability of their application or the possibility of their refutation. Even if there are religious arguments, belief itself is not argumentative. See also beliefs.
