PHL 364 God, Evil and Hiddenness (3 credits)

This course will examine recent arguments against the existence of God based on the problem of evil and the problem of divine hiddenness.  (The problem of evil is the problem of reconciling God's existence with the presence and severity of suffering in the world, and the problem of divine hiddenness is the issue of understanding why God would provide so few clear and dramatic signs of his presence.)  Although no prior mathematical knowledge will be presupposed, as part of the process of understanding the arguments students will also be expected to master some basics of probability theory.
