PHL 220 - Philosophy of Religion


The course focuses on traditional arguments for and against theism, or the belief in God. Topics will include arguments for and against the existence of God including the ontological, cosmological, design arguments and evolution. The problem of evil will be examined, along with the responses that evil is due to man’s “free-will” and that a “greater good” comes from the existence of evil and suffering. The course will consider the nature of, rationality of, and justifications for religious belief, including Pascal’s Wager, miracles, religious testimony, language, and experience. In addition, students will examine if morality is determined by God and whether life would be meaningless, if God did not exist.
