Having completed the unit of philosophy of religion, you are now ready to respond to an article written by an actual atheist. This article, titled ‘On Being an Atheist,’ was written by H. J. McCloskey in 1968 for the journal Question. McCloskey is an Australian philosopher who wrote a number of atheistic works in the 1960s and 70s including the book God and Evil (Nijhoff, 1974). In this article, McCloskey is both critical of the classical arguments for God’s existence and offers the problem of evil as a reason why one should not believe in God.
