The questions surrounding the existence of God have troubled philosophers and theologians for more than two thousand years. Despite logical arguments for and against there simply is no consensus. In this class we will examine a few of the most significant arguments throughout history and examine why we might find one more or less compelling than another. We will look at Plato, Augustine, Kierkegaard, Dostoyevsky, Freud, and Marilyn McCord Adams, and ultimately, we will press the question of why it is that something exists instead of nothing and how we might explain this phenomenon. Facilitated Discussion.
