How did everything get here? Can a rational person truly believe that the world was created by God? In this course we delve into the most profound philosophical questions of them all. In this course we journey back in time to ask is belief in God rational? What is the role of faith? How do we encounter the Divine?
We will explore atheistic claims and ask how can we even begin to talk about the world of today without tracing everything back to the very beginning?
