User: How might the skeptic respond to your claim that such a belief cannot be doubted? Identify one such specific belief and present your response to the skeptic. (If you don't have such a belief, explain how one could live while not accepting any claim as true.)

Is it possible to doubt everything, or almost everything? Are there beliefs you possess that cannot be challenged or shown to be false
Weegy: It's possible to doubt everything, but you shouldn't be. There are things you have to believe no matter what, but you do have a choice in the matter. It all comes down to your heart. (More)

Are there beliefs you possess that cannot be challenged or shown to be false
Weegy: This is a good question, but everything can be challenged, and people can believe what they want to believe. [ If someone HAD to believe me about something, it would be something minuscule and obvious such as "Hey, I got a new car, come check it out tomorrow." You're not going to tell them that you don't believe them, you're going to go and see the car then there you have it. ] (More)

User: How might the skeptic respond to your claim that such a belief cannot be doubted?
Weegy: J.P. Moreland said the quest for knowledge requires that we maximize our true beliefs and avoid false beliefs. Most people keep a balanced perspective on this quest, but every once in a while you will meet the radical skeptic. [ He's the guy who thinks avoiding error is more important than obtaining truth. For every claim to knowledge you make he will respond with "How do you know that?" Whatever your justification may be the skeptic will again ask, "How do you know that?" Radical skeptics doubt virtually everything. The only thing skeptics fail to doubt is doubt itself. To be consistent, however, the skeptic should be skeptical of his own skepticism, but he is not. The skeptic claims to know we cannot claim to know anything, which is itself a claim to know something, and thus eminently self-refuting. In addition to being self-refuting, skepticism as a general philosophy of knowing is also irrational and impractical. It is irrational because it is epistemically impossible to doubt all things. Doubt rests on beliefs that are themselves not doubted; i.e. doubt requires prior knowledge.1 As Philip Johnson wrote, "One who claims to be a skeptic of one set of beliefs is actually a true believer in another set of beliefs." Doubt arises only when some claim to knowledge conflicts with something we already believe we know to be true. For example, we doubt a particular experience because we know we have been misled in the past. This is problematic for the skeptic because his worldview denies that anyone can have such knowledge. To admit knowledge of anything gives up the skeptical farm. To make matters worse, not only does the skeptic have to justify how he knows those beliefs are true, but also how he knows those beliefs that justify the original beliefs are true, ad infinitum. So not only does he have to justify his claim to know one thing, but an infinity of things! While it is natural to the learning process to doubt some truth-claims (modest skepticism), it ... (More)
