Aaah, sounds like a good plan of attack :L
The exam is quite unclear because the question is 'clarify the argument and/or interpretation in the passage' so it gives you the ability to talk about either the argument in the paragraph or the text as a whole

Ahaha well, at least you've got a get out clause if its the paragraph you don't want of Ayer! Btw I'm really struggling with making a summary of Westphal, do you know any useful links for it?

For Westphal it's easier to break it down into scholars (and they've used the intro paragraph, so literally everything else can be broken down into scholars)

Thank you very much! Most of my class work has random drawings on it where I got bored of Westphal during the lesson so that's no use to me aha! Really wish A2 philosophy was as easy as AS

Hope Ayer comes up, as it should, really. I know all the stuff about the articles, I know most concepts, just a bit unsure whether or not I can flesh them out.

I looked at the mark scheme and it said for the examiners to mark positively so if you know the basic points and just fill it out then you'll pick marks up easily

The only words I can use to describe his passage is that it is very liberal because it tries to keep everyone happy

I know! All he says is intuition, intuition, feeling right, being certain
Conclusion: well anyone can be right really.

Really Donovan?
REALLY? :L

Donovan just basically says that intuition can't be a proof for God, but he doesn't deny the experience. When people start shoving it down your throat then it becomes a problem. Bring in thoughts about Buber's I-You/I-It relationships, ie. Adam needed to know Eve exists before he could have the I-You, personal relationship. you need to know that God is, before you can put labels onto God.

the thing that I don't get, is what are the implications for Westphal?

well for the conc, bring in that religion would probably crumble as it's founded on intuition and religious experiences, like Saul's conversion etc. Without intuition the bible becomes just a book about morality, and nothing supernatural.

Nah, I'm not, Donovan was quite easy to learn I thought. Got a B in my mock, didn't seem difficult. I just hope Ayer comes up, his is the easiest. It's basically

"To sum up, if you think about God you're a weiner"

The more I think about it, the more I realise it must be Ayer... Surely?? But then I also get a bad gut feeling that it's gonna be Westphal

I'm the same, keep thinking of Kant (as long as it's not deism/scholasticism I'll be fine)

Glad I'm not the only one! I hope our bad feelings are wrong though! I think I'd cry with happiness if it was Ayer
