Religion

"The Ethics of Belief" by W.T Clifford. Write an essay that describes his attitude towards belief. Be sure to address the following issues:

1. why does Clifford say what we believe is not merely a private matter, but a moral issue?
2. What is morally permissible for us to believe?
3. What implications does his view have for religious faith? Before answering this question, you may want to look at the last few lines of Part III that begin with "To sum up."
Use examples where appropriate in your discussion.
