Epistemology is the last vestige if supernatural horseshit.
Epistemology is supposed to be the philosophical framework for the origin of and what qualifies as knowledge.

However, as a discipline it has been hijacked by theologians like Alvin Plantinga, who instead of confronting epistemic regress with rational theories like coherence theory, fall back on "GodDidIt" and use regress as "proof" by presupposition of <God Exists>.

Ontological arguments have historically never worked, because they're flawed formal arguments, innately tied with the childish nature of Christianity: The need for a paternal authority figure to hang all of one's beliefs about the world on, to answer difficult questions with unfounded beliefs, and avoid the fear of the void: The unknown.

β€œIt is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”
― Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes
