    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it involves abstract ideas that you may have never thought of before. It may cause you to question everything, including your faith, if you are religious.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite topics in this course was the problem of evil. The question was, "Is theism inconsistent with evil?" This involved whether God actually exists and if he does, why is there so much evil in the world? Some theistic replies to this question were that we must know evil to appreciate the good, evil is a consequence of humankind's sin, we mus have evil to develop moral character, and that evil is a consequence of free will. Some skeptical replies to these theistic replies were that if we need evil to appreciate the good, why is there so much evil? If evil is a consequence of humankind's sin, why must the innocent suffer? These questions and replies caused me to really question the existence of God, and I've had some really engaging conversations with people about this.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any student taking this course to keep an open mind and always try to put yourself in the shoes of someone who has the opposite views as you.
