    Answer: Before taking Humanities 210, I would have described my philosophies as determinism and idealism. “Determinism is the philosophical proposition that every event, decision, and action, is casually determined by an unbroken chain of prior occurrences” (Mastin para. 1). I was very focused on the idea that individual ideas were predetermined and that they were meant to be. With idealism, I truly did believe that my thoughts were formed due to my reality. My conscious choice of these…

    No, the fact of evil does not make it irrational to believe in God. Evil is real and is a result of our free will, which, I will argue, is the only plausible way God, who is characterized by His full attributes described in traditional theism, could have destined humanity to live. Further, a free world where evil exists is the only world where humans may become complete creations. In a free world, where we are presented with genuine choices of right or wrong, we are therefore able to grow…

    With Fate and Freewill at hand, it can go either way. Fate being what is going to happen in the future of a person’s life or society while free will being that society or a person can decide whether they are going to make change to the future depending on what is or isn't going to be changed.

    An Australian philosopher named John L. Mackie is widely known for his argument against the problem of evil. Mackie’s argument was very similar to the problem of evil. The problem of evil in summary states that a God cannot exist with the existence of evil, but Mackie’s argument was not that God did not exist entirely, but rather that God did not exist as an all-powerful or perfect God. He argued that having an all knowing God, and the present existence of evil were both logically inconsistent.…

    It can be just a matter of perspective whether we hold the view that there are somewhat inevitable connection among events or there only exists sheer chance. For how can we judge the existence of relationship, a invisible thing? In that case, it is more fruitful to think about what is the healthy way to cope with seeming contingency than to be engrossed in the discussion about something is a chance product or not. It is because paranoia no less distresses its possessor than a world with no…

    supporter of determinism, and in complete opposition to free will, as his beliefs are at absolute odds with free will Holbach states that man is constantly being modified by causes that may or may not be apparent to the individual, of which he has no control over, and it is these causes that affect him, by which control every aspect of his being. And in spite of the that which confines him, a man may be delusional in thinking that he has free will. Holbach describes will as being a modification…

    In this paper I will consider the atheistic point of view on the argument from evil, while addressing free will. This is one of the main arguments against the existence of an all-good and all-knowing God, which was discussed in class. Atheistic Argument From Evil If God exists, then He is omniscient, omnipotent, and perfectly good. If God were omniscient, omnipotent, and perfectly good, then the world would not contain evil. The world contains evil. Therefore, God does not exist. Beginning with…
