Does God's omniscience suspend our freewill?

On some views of omniscience, God’s foreknowledge actually suspends our freewill. Here I will (i) show how God’s foreknowledge does not suspend our freewill and (ii) critique two views of omniscience which affirm that our freewill is suspended by God’s foreknowledge.<p>Theological fatalism is the view that if God knows everything then everything will happen necessarily, every event is fated to occur by the causal power in God’s knowledge. The theological Fatalist would say that the conclusion …

Can God even be disproved?

One of the many ways to assess the coherence of a proposition is to see if it is falsifiable. If something can be proven false, but just has not yet done so, then it could be true just in case it has not been falsified. On the other hand, if something is not falsifiable then it would seem one doesn’t need to seek to provide evidence against it as any evidence will be unsuccessful. All one would need is a lack of evidence in favor to of the proposition or evidence in favor of an alternative …

Is science a better explanation than God?<p><i>On Epistemological methodologies</i><p>Let’s first set the stage for what an explanation is and how it ties in with knowledge as a whole. Epistemology is the study of knowledge and …

Where is God?

<i>(Problem of divine hiddenness/ non-belief)</i><p>The argument from divine hiddenness (modestly stated) would state that on theism it is unlikely that non-resistant unbelievers would exist.

Why religion does not poison everything

The subtitle of Christopher Hitchens’ 2007 book <i>God is Not Great</i> was <i>‘How religion poisons everything’</i>. Such a bold assertion is bound to turn heads, but what is a theist to make of this?<p>First let’s clarify what exactly I mean when I say “poison”. By poison I mean that something is the largest (or one of the largest) contributor(s) of pain and war in the world. So to say that religion “poisons everything” is to say that religion is the or at least one of the largest contributors to the pain and …
