In response to the charge that his co-opted-from-pluralists-and-unoriginal-argument the Outsider Test for Faith is based on the genetic fallacy, Loftus says:
"This charge is also false. I allow that a religion could still pass the OTF even despite its unreliable origins . . . "(The Christian Delusion, 99, emphasis original).
In response to Victor Reppert's claim that he took and passed the "outsider test for faith," Loftus says:
"But has he? I don't think so at all. I don't think any revealed religion can pass the OTF. . . .[Believers] CANNOT all be exceptions! Believers are simply in denial when they claim their religious faith passes the OTF" (103, emphasis original).
