# Evidentialism

fleeting

one is justified to believe something if and only if that person has evidence which supports said belief

proponents of evidentialism is David Hume who said “A wise man apportions his beliefs to the evidence."[2] Similarly, Hitchens’s Razor states “what can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.” Carl Sagan has also stated “Extraordinary claims require extra ordinary evidence.” All of these statements imply acceptance of philosophical evidentialism.
