Hi,

We have a mock tomorrow for Philosophy unit 3 (developments), we've been told it will be one of five past papers so we can look at them all and make sure we're prepared.

I'm having trouble understanding a couple of the questions on religious experience and wondering if anyone can help?

"Examine three fundamental ideas within the argument for the existence of God based on religious experience."
and
"Examine some of the key principles of the argument for the existence of God based upon religious experience."

We have learnt a lot about the argument from religious experience but never what the "fundamental ideas" are or the "key principles" of the argument are. I feel like it should be obvious but I can't work it out...

Can anyone help/does anyone know?

Thanks so much in advance!

They're basically asking the same things, just after stating a philosopher and their argument (which would be their fundamental or key principle) refer back to the question.
