hi guys, i was wondering if anyone studies A-level religious studies
i need help writing an A02 15 marker for this question: religion has no satisfactory response to the challenge of the verification principle.’ Evaluate this claim. [15 marks]
I simply need to know the structure of how to write it and what to include in each paragraph.

Paragraph 1:

Criticism of Ayer: the verification principle cannot itself be verified.
Ayer's defence (optional)
Either a final criticism of Ayer or your explanation of why Ayer's defence is successful.

Paragraph 2:

Hick's eschatological verification as a criticism of Ayer
Criticism of Hick
Either your defence of Ayer or your explanation of why Hick's argument is successful.

Paragraph 3:

Wittgenstein's language games as a criticism of Ayer
Criticism of Wittgenstein
Either your defence of Ayer or your explanation of why Wittgenstein's argument is successful.

For an A02 do you just need three paragraphs and a conclusion?

You do need a conclusion yes, which should just sum up the evaluative mini-conclusions you reached at the end of each paragraph.

You should do a short intro too.

3 paragraphs, each with one argument for/against the debate question, at least one criticism, (optional to defend against that criticism) and always ending with your judgement as to which of the two sides of the debate you will have represented wins and why.
