Brian Davies and others have contended that what it means for God to be good is different from what it means for an agent to be morally good (Davies 2006). Reductionism considers so-called God-talk (the discussion of issues relating to the transcendent) to be meaningless, because involving questions of faith that are not verifiable or falsifiable, i.e., cannot be challenged rationally. Through multidisciplinary comparative inquiry, religious philosophy allows for a variety of approaches—from historical and analytical work to evocative description and theoretical evaluation of truth claims—and both secular and religious thinkers participate.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Professor Gwen Griffith-Dickson’s academic career has been spent entirely in London. Just ask Rudy Giuliani or Richard Gere next time you see either of them.

God does not denature humanity in coming to us, but the Transcendent adjusts itself to the human condition. Common to all these types is the anthropomorphic character of their conception of God. The problem of evil is the question of how to reconcile the existence of evil with that of a deity who is, in either absolute or relative terms, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent. [18] [19] An argument from evil attempts to show that the co-existence of evil and such a deity is unlikely or impossible if placed in absolute terms.

There are rich and complex connections that link religious belief with ethical commitment and individual self-awareness, with the attempt to understand the cosmos and the struggle to find meaning in our lives; and only when these connections are revealed, only when we have come to have a broader sense of the 'spiritual dimension' within which religion lives and moves, can we begin to see fully what is involved in accepting a religious view of reality." (From Cottingham's The Spiritual Dimension: Religion, Philosophy and Human Value, 2005) Cottingham himself, at least with regard to Christianity and theism in general, outlines the various connections between religious truth-claims and spiritual praxis, but here I want to focus on his treatment of spirituality, bearing in mind that "Spirituality has long been considered to be a concept that is concerned in the first instance with activities rather than theories, with ways of living rather than doctrines subscribed to, with praxis rather than belief."

Following Wittgenstein, authors like Rem Edwards and Ninian Smart have concluded that such an undertaking is next to impossible. For as it is known that the business of medicine is to cure a disease, and one who can cure is a physician, so it is also known that the business of the prophets is to give law to the people by divine revelation, and one who does so is a prophet. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. ( Albert Einstein - The Merging of Spirit and Science) The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.
