PHIL 45.02 God, Belief, and Evil

God is supposed to be a perfect being: all-knowing, all-powerful, and perfectly good. Famously, there are 'proofs' of God's existence, and 'proofs' to show the opposite. What should we think? This class explores the question of God's nature and existence, and what it means for human belief and action. What are the divine attributes? How strong are the arguments for or against God's existence? Can religious belief be rational? How could a perfect God permit evil? Can there be morality without God?

Prerequisite

One Philosophy course, or permission of the instructor.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
