So far the customary arguments for the existence of God. But many God-believers would say that their belief does not rest on argument, but on an awareness of being somehow in touch with God through their experience. This raises the question of what is called religious experience and the part which it plays in generating and maintaining God-belief. What kind of experience is it? Is it a perception? Is God presented in it as an object, from the perception of which empirical concepts can be formed? Is that the real source and origin of God-belief? Or if not, what kind of experience is religious experience and what cognitive value can be claimed for it?
