Where did the universe come from? Why is there evil in the world?

The first three weeks will complete the university course. We then move on to the main topic for Term 2.
If you are starting Philosophy in Term 2, you will gain useful knowledge during the tail end of the uni course, so you are most welcome to join.

Philosophy of Religion
Philosophy of Religion is a rich field of intellectual inquiry. Students will start by developing a definition of "God". Students will then examine key arguments for and against the existence of this thing we call "God". The course will culminate in students examining both religious and secular answers to two ultimate questions: 1. Why does the universe exist?; and 2. Why is there pain and suffering in the world? Students will need to commit to the entire term.
