Miracles & Moral Culpability: How to Murder your Parishioners and get away with it

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

I argue that there exists a proportional relationship between degrees of moral culpability and degrees of probability, where the more an agent believes her actions will result in certain consequences, the more morally culpable she is for these consequences. I assert that this degree of probability is necessarily diminished by the existence of active supernatural powers. Consequently, agents who believe in such powers are less morally culpable than agents who do not.
