On a priori justifications....
Just came across this blog post, addressing the lame assertion that since we cannot justify the various methods of scientific inquiry or naturalism by a priori logic, they are no more valid than methods of religious inquiry. I have always felt that this line of reasoning (how do you justify the use of reason in this case?!?) is a last ditch effort to salvage some shred of respectability for religion/spirituality/faith/etc. Needless to say, I think it is without merit in any practical sense.
