Jos Gibbons that a claim is unevidenced is... a reason why to believe it is irrational, and hence the source of an obligation of all not to believe it.

This claim is clearly self-undermining. To see why consider the (your) claim "that a claim is unevidenced is a reason why to believe it is irrational" Now since there is no evidence for this claim on your own account it is irrational and we ought not to believe it!
