  • Rousseau's Arguments On Religion And Atheism

    Rousseau claims that the precondition of decency in terms of being human and most importantly a citizen is to believe in God.

  • My Original Understanding Of Atheism

    My original understanding of Atheism focused on several distinctions that I felt acted to characterize basic differences between an atheist and theist.

  • Spinoza And The Definition Of Atheism Is Wrong

    As we turn to the issue of atheism, I believe some framework is necessary. Atheism is typically defined as a lack of belief in God and it is in the definition of God that the issue arises. Clearly, the two philosophers have a different definition of the word God. As hopefully made clear in the second and third paragraph, Spinoza thinks that God is an impersonal summation of all things (i.e. substance), while Berkeley thinks that God is a personal, thinking thing responsible for but distinct from…

  • Similarities Between Atheism And Christianity

    What constitutes a religion? A question we have been trying to answer for an entire semester. Most, if not all, of us consider Christianity to be a religion, but do we see Atheism as being a religion in itself? Believe it or not, Atheism and Christianity hold a number of similarities, and the single factor I have chosen to compare between the two is whether or not they hold similar attributes that, according to my views, help make up a religion. Both Christianity and Atheism share the aspects of…

  • Consumptions In Michael Scriven's The Presumption Of Atheism

    In The Presumption of Atheism , Michael Scriven argues that when arguments for the existence of God are unable to provide the evidence required to maintain this conclusion (and Scriven believes this to be the case for all such arguments) the only position that one can rationally maintain is atheism.
