Choose two of these three assignments:
1) For many centuries in human history, God was worshiped as a woman, the Great Goddess from whom all life flowed. In the last two or three thousand years in the West, it has been common to think of God as a male and in European cultures to think of God as a Caucasian. Try thinking of God as a female and as being of another racial or ethnic group. What changes might develop in one’s own self-concept and in the way one relates to God if this were true?
2) Some Eastern thinkers have said that the West has objectified God. What does it mean to see God as an object? What is an alternative model of God?
3) Write a short defense of atheism. Then write a short defense of theism. Then write a short defense of agnosticism. Discuss why a person might sincerely and rationally hold a view contrary to yours.
Your initial posting should be at least 300 words in length and your peer responses should be at least 150 words in length. Your readings and lessons should be cited in APA, MLA, or Chicago style.
