The purpose of the Atheism Exposed course is to introduce the student to some of the problems commonly associated with atheism.
Many people become atheists because they honestly think it's the more reasonable option to believe.
They think that to believe in God is foolish or unscientific
and so they become atheists because they think that is the rational way to go.
But, what usually gets left out of the discussion are the INTELLECTUAL PROBLEMS WITH ATHEISM.
These problems commonly associated with atheism are not talked about that much outside the circles of academic philosophy. Most people don’t even know about them.
So we want to bring some balance to the discussion.
We are going to be putting atheism on the defensive for a change.
The goal of this course is to teach you why some of the most commonly given reasons for being an atheist are actually false (which of course means that many people become atheists for the wrong reasons).
Many young people today are duped by atheism because they have never been taught good reasons to think that God exists nor have they been shown why atheism has its own set of intellectual problems.
