Alvin Plantinga is an American philosopher whose rigorous scholarship over a half century has made theism – the belief in a divine reality or god – a serious option within the academy.
PLATINGA’S PIONEERING WORK began in the late 1950s, a time when academic philosophers generally rejected religiously informed philosophy. His arguments have influenced three generations of professional philosophers, and university departments around the world now include thousands of professors who bring their religious commitments to bear on their work, including Buddhist, Jewish, and Muslim philosophers.
People who believe in God but don’t believe on the basis of arguments – and that would certainly be most of us who believe in God – are perfectly sensible and perfectly OK from an intellectual view in believing in this way.
