This particular essay discusses the chapter "God and Religion" from Philosophy and Contemporary Issues by John Roy Burr and Milton Goldinger. From the chapter's inquiry into the existence of God, the paper addresses the construction of the debate including the scientific constraints of logic which fail to admit subjective experience, the inconsistency of the existence of evil and the existence of god, the nature of knowledge vs. that of empirical evidence, and the meaning of life without spirit.
Our Continuing Education Series hopes to provide readers with thoughtful consideration of various books, historical events and ideas.
In some cases, the manuscripts presented in this Continuing Education series are merely papers or essays written by undergraduate and graduate students assigned certain subjects. In other cases, these pieces are written as non-scholarly musings by people fascinated by certain subjects.
Whether trying to determine if an actual book or author is worth your time reading, trying to compare your own thoughts on the subject with others, or simply trying to engage your mind in consideration of certain topics, we believe these pieces will offer useful insights.
