A philosopher of religion calls it quits
January 9, 2011 Leave a comment
My latest article, for Religion Dispatches, examines the controversy generated last fall when philosopher of religion Keith Parsons quit the field and declared the theistic arguments to be hopelessly fallacious. The article also delves into the different approaches to philosophy of religion — are we trying to answer questions of the form “Is X true?” or of the form “If X were true, what would follow from that?”
Keith Parsons himself now has a blog post up about my piece, and responds to some comments readers left at RD. There’s also a comment thread about the article going at Jerry Coyne’s blog, Why Evolution is True.
