I borrowed some notes from a class mate because I had to miss a phil class, and I noticed that she had written that such and such argument is "epistemically" irrelevant. I went to look this up in the dictionary and found no such word, but I did find the word "epistemologically". I assume this is the one I want. I am using it in the context of... "hoping that God exists is epistemologically irrelevant to the argument of whether or not God exists." What do you think? Am I using this correctly? What I want to say is that it is of no use for getting at the truth of a matter. Thanks. p.s. no, I am not an atheist - for anybody out there who might be worried I have had a sudden change of heart.
