The argument from a proper basis is an ontological argument for the existence of God related to fideism. Alvin Plantinga argued that belief in God is a properly basic belief, and so no basis for belief in God is necessary.[1]

The counter argument to this statement is that the argument from a proper basis is begging the question.
