Religious traditions disagree deeply about religious matters. And in many religious traditions there are to be found wise people who think carefully and judiciously, who are intelligent, clever, honest, reflective, serious, and so on. This is a fact of religious disagreement. This disagreement is in fact part of the evidence for the religious ambiguity of the world. In addition, disagreement about an issue or area of inquiry provides reason to think that each side has an obligation to adopt the “Critical Stance” with respect to that issue or area of enquiry. The Critical Stance has two main components: the “E‐principle,” which states that each side has an obligation to examine their beliefs, and the “T‐principle,” which states that, given disagreement, each side should hold its beliefs tentatively.
