Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to philosophy, by way of religion. We will take a critical (not scripture-based) look at the idea, common to the major Western monotheistic faiths, of a single, perfect God. Does the unlikely existence of life and the precise natural order of the world around us make more sense if we posit such a being? Or does all the evil in the world count as evidence against a perfect creator? We will examine these and other arguments for and against God's existence. We will also discuss whether modern science offers a picture of the world compatible with and complimentary to religion, or if it provides an alternative and better world view that leaves the religious picture outmoded.
