    3 Credit Hour(s)

    Philosophical examination of religion; issues include the existence and nature of God, relationship between faith and reason, and challenges to religious belief.

    Throughout history individuals have pondered whether or not God exists. Many consider it the most important question that can be asked. The reason? As Mortimer Adler, a well-known philosopher, points out, “More consequences for thought and action follow from the affirmation or denial of God than from answering any other basic question.”* In this class we will address philosophical issues as they relate to God’s existence or absence. One of the first issues to be examined will be the relationship between faith and reason in religious belief. Next, we will examine the major challenges to theism (e.g., the problem of evil) and provide potential responses to these difficulties. This will be followed by a discussion of reasons for belief in God: classical arguments, religious experience, pragmatic reasons, and the like. It is my aim to provide a platform for serious discussion of these fundamental issues. In familiarizing themselves with the philosophical issues surrounding their religious beliefs, students typically find their positions strengthened and confirmed.
