This course is a philosophical examination of some fundamental questions in Christian metaphysics: Can we prove that God exists? What is God like? What is creation? How are God and creation related? More particularly, if God created everything, how do evolution and the Big Bang fit into the picture? We will attempt to formulate our own answers to each of these questions; but our discussion will make constant reference to the answers already present in the Christian tradition, especially to those of Thomas Aquinas.
