the existence of god 2
Part 1: Preliminary Essay:
Realize that many religions differ in their conception of the ultimate, and that individuals, even within a single religion, differ more so. Even though the concept of â€œGodâ€ is held by many theologians and philosophers to be beyond human comprehension, we often have some characteristics in mind when we use the term. Describe your understanding of the term â€œGodâ€. Discuss your core beliefs regarding the existence/non-existence of such a being. Clearly state your current beliefs, discuss what influenced those beliefs, and explain why you think your perspective is correct.
Part 2: Final Essay:
After analyzing arguments for and against the existence of a theistic God, presented by some of the most influential philosophers of religion, how have your views changed, if at all? Outline the characteristics generally included in a theistic conception of God. Then discuss your current beliefs regarding the existence/non-existence of such a being. Most importantly, present arguments for your current position, and responses to objections often raised against this position. Make your case!
