About This Class

In this course you will learn about the philosophy of religion, which is a branch of philosophy (not theology) that focuses on using rational understand to comprehend various religious phenomenons and beliefs.

In the course I focus on some philosopher's views on the evolution of religion from ancient times to the present. I present the rationalizations and proofs of God as well as reasons not to believe in God.

The course is 100% objective. At times I offer my own opinions, but I always try to give both sides of arguments by philosophers on both sides of the issues I present.

Additionally, I NEVER single out any religion or ANY group of people. I never mention religions like Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism by name. My goal for the course was to be as objective as possible, and let you decide on your eventual beliefs. I just introduce you to philosophy of religion approximately as it would be taught in an undergraduate philosophy of religion course.
