Atheist Debates - Dealing with 'Inner Witness' claims
 
Craig and others attribute their belief to the inner witness of the Holy Spirit. This foundation, akin to the 'sesus divinitatis' is viewed as a properly basic belief, with no need for justification.  Can this, or any personal 'feeling', be reasonably accepted without external justification/verification? Is this just a raw appeal to faith, or is there something more?
