Is it rational to believe in God or other supernatural powers? Are there good epistemic reasons for holding religious convictions, facts that speak for their truth? The empirical evidence would seem to suggest there are not. Posters of St. Christopher do not reduce the number of accidents on passing roads; miraculous cures do not occur more frequently in Lourdes than elsewhere in the world; and prayer provides no more help to us today than burnt offerings did to people of antiquity. As for theological defense, traditional proofs for the existence of God come up short as well. The belief that the principle of sufficient reason implies God's existence is nothing more than a leap of faith. And Darwinâ??s theories explain the origin of species and the complexities of evolution far better than the assumption of an intelligent creator can. Even attempts at theodicy fail in the end. Whoever lets a person suffer to reach some other goal treats people as a means and thus acts immorally. An honest review of the evidence does not speak for the existence of God; quite the contrary. The worldâ??s suffering offers a conclusive argument against it.Veranstaltungshinweis: DEBATTEGibt es Gott?Argumente für und gegen die Existenz Gottes Prof. Dr. Ansgar BeckermannPhilosoph, Universität Bielefeld Prof. Dr. William Lane CraigPhilosoph, Biola University ( USA ) 29. 10. 2015, 19.30 UhrAlte Kongresshalle Theresienhöhe 15, 80339 München Die Debatte wird live und in voller Länge im Internet übertragen: www.cvmd.eu Zum Buch:Ist es rational, an Gott oder andere übernatürliche Kräfte zu glauben? Gibt es gute epistemische Gründe für religiöse Überzeugungen - Umstände, die eindeutig für die Wahrheit dieser Überzeugungen sprechen? Empirisch gesehen offenbar nicht: Christophorus-Plaketten führen nicht zu weniger Unfällen, Heilungen finden in Lourdes nicht häufiger statt als anderswo auf der Welt; und Beten hilft offenbar genau so wenig wie die Brandopfer in der Antike. Auch die traditionellen Gottesbeweise leisten nicht, was sie leisten sollen - unter anderem, weil wir nicht davon ausgehen können, dass das Prinzip vom zureichenden Grund zutrifft, und weil Darwins Evolutionstheorie nicht nur die Entstehung der Arten, sondern auch die vielen Probleme des Evolutionsprozesses besser erklärt als die Annahme, all dies ginge auf einen intelligenten Schöpfer zurück. Schließlich müssen alle Theodizee-Versuche als gescheitert angesehen werden. Wer einen Menschen leiden lässt, um damit irgendein Ziel zu erreichen, behandelt diesen Menschen nur als Mittel und handelt daher unmoralisch. Nüchtern betrachtet gibt es also keine epistemischen Gründe, die für die Existenz Gottes sprechen; aber die Existenz von Leid und Schmerz spricht nach wie vor eindeutig dagegen.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction This paper will deal with a critical analysis and comparison of the novel McTeague: A story of San Francisco, written by Frank Norris and published in 1899, and the 2 hour version of the movie Greed produced in 1924 by Erich von Stroheim. First of all, I will give a short summary of the novel, pointing out several aspects that make it a typical naturalistic novel. Then I will go on by giving some brief background information on the production of the movie, describing its metamorphosis from a nine hour epos to a commercial film of about 2 hours and 15 minutes. According to this, I will discuss this shortening, give examples of what was left out of the original version and try to give reasons for that. Furthermore, I will look at the effects this had on the original story and discuss the question whether the film version can still be regarded as belonging to the naturalistic genre. Doing so, I will discuss complete scenes and shorter passages which are mentioned in the book and not in the novel and vice versa, and passages that are slightly changed. I claim that Greed is still a naturalistic piece of art though in a weaker form by pointing out striking elements that remained in the movie.
