Philosophy,Religion and God
Tobegin with, it is crucial to understand that Philosophy, Religion andGod is a topic of top priority due to the misunderstanding by most ofthe people. From the discussion, it can be derived that there arevarious theories postulated in an attempt to explain the absence orexistence of God. In the long run, each of the theories has itsstrengths and shortcomings. Therefore, it is evident that no one hassubstantial truth to prove the absence of God, but there is apossibility of the existence of God due to the natural events thathappen and cannot be explained. Thus, it is a person’sresponsibility to determine their stands by evaluating the situationat hand. Typically, the biggest question that the philosophersattempt to answer is about the origin of life. It is hard for thephilosophers to prove the existence of the Supreme Being that hascontrol of the whole universe. As a result, various people decide totake different positions regarding the existence of God while otherschoose to disbelieve the existence of the Supernatural Being. It isof important meaning to understand that all of the theories presentedare based on the personal thinking of the philosopher, and thus theirarguments should not affect anyone’s fate. This implies that eachperson can choose the right standpoint for them. However, most of thepeople choose to believe the existence of a religion although most ofthe faiths disagree on various topics (Velasquez et al. pp 250-264).
Inconclusion, chapter four of the book is an attempt to explain to usdifferent ideas regarding the philosophy religion and God. It iseducational since, through this, we can understand more about theexistence of God in relation to different faiths.
