I’m working on a writing discussion question and need a sample draft to help me study.
Clifford makes an interesting case for the moral responsibility we have to not believe anything without sufficient evidence. In fact, he states, “It is wrong everywhere for anyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.” After reading Clifford, what do you think counts as sufficient evidence? When do we know we have done our due diligence in seeking out the required evidence for our beliefs? Finally, do you think we actually do this in life? If we do, in what situations are we most likely to seek evidence before adopting a belief?
