Brian Lars Enden
Consideration of the sources of religious ideas and practices, the main kinds of religious views and the problems they raise, and the different forms that spirituality can take. Issues concerning the relations of religion to science and morality also treated.
Can God's existence be proven? Can God's non-existence be proven? Is it rational or reasonable to believe in God? What are miracles and do they ever happen? Is it possible for more than one religion to be correct? Does morality require a God? Is there life after death? We will explore these questions and so much more. No previous experience with religion or philosophy required.
