ADVANTAGES

Some rationalists think that a reliabilist account of warrant providesthe answer. According to Reliabilism, beliefs are warranted if theyare formed by a process that generally produces true beliefs ratherthan false ones. The true beliefs that constitute our innate knowledgeare warranted, then, because they are formed as the result of areliable belief-forming process. Carruthers maintains that“Innate beliefs will count as known provided that the processthrough which they come to be innate is a reliable one (provided, thatis, that the process tends to generate beliefs that are true)”(1992, p. 77). He argues that natural selection results in theformation of some beliefs and is a truth-reliable process.
