Guest speaker:
Dr. Horace Griffin !

Philosophy of Religion:

Main concerns:
Is there a God? Are there good reasons, good arguments, good evidence, to believe that there's a God? Or should we believe there's not a God (given the evils and, e.g., forms of discrimination -- e.g., racism, homophobia, etc., that have occurred?)? Which (if any) religious beliefs are rational?
Related (psychological / sociological / moral) concerns:
How do various religious beliefs influence one's moral views and ability to think about moral issues? Do they help? Hinder? How should religious beliefs influence social policy (if at all)?
