    could you talk about Descartes and Gaunilo when doing Anselm's argumnt??
    no i find religious language really hard and confusing! might do some of body soul but my main are the ontological and problem of evil.
    what about you??
    And no
    i think with Gaunillo you could make reference to at the end, but Descartes is another argument. Just keep it simple

    is this correct for Alvin Platinga 'Possible Worlds" which supports Ontological Argument:

    - Alvin Platinga developed the notion of possible worlds
    - He offers the description of a possible world where there exists a being with 'maximal greatness'.
    - A being can only have 'maximal greatness' if it exists in all possible worlds.
    - However, this does not mean God, as Platinga maintained that for a being to be maximally great, it must exist within all possible worlds.
    - According to Davis, even if we accept that there exists a being with maximal greatness, and therefore this being has the possibility to exists in our world, this does not mean that this being actually exists.
    - Therefore, all that is signifiant within Platinga's response is the element possibility. Platinga argues that a being with 'maximal greatness is possible'.
    - Therefore God is possible.
    you could also say that Plantinga introduces the idea of 'maximal excllence'. he states that
    -maximal greatness entails maximal excellence
    -maximal excellence entails omnitpotence, omniscience and moral perfection.
    therefore
    -there is a possible world in whcih there is a being that is maximally great.
    - it has maximal excellence
    -if omnipoetent, omniscience and morally perfect, and maximally great, it is exsitent in our world
    -therefore, there is a God.

    it would make sense for them to do Soul making, because i don't think they have actually asked about Hick by itself, like they have done with the other theodicies

    is there a way in which you can add what you mean to my response? my head at this moment is full of pain

    Got religious language
    Ontological
    Theodicy

    there is so much
    If you think this is a lot, you should try Alevel Biology! I put in bold what I added xD

    - Alvin Platinga developed the notion of possible worlds
    - He offers the description of a possible world where there exists a being with 'maximal greatness'.
    - A being can only have 'maximal greatness' if it exists in all possible worlds.
    - However, this does not mean God, as Platinga maintained that for a being to be maximally great, it must exist within all possible worlds.
      • Plantinga introduced the idea of “maximal excellence” which entails all the omnis and moral perfection Therefore:
        • There is a possible world in which there is a being that is maximally great
        • If it's maximally great this being must exist in our world
        • This being has maximal greatness so it must also have maximal excellence
          - According to Davis, even if we accept that there exists a being with maximal greatness, and therefore this being has the possibility to exists in our world, this does not mean that this being actually exists.
          - Therefore, all that is signifiant within Platinga's response is the element possibility. Platinga argues that a being with 'maximal greatness is possible'.
          - Therefore the God of classical theism is possible.

    They asked for vale of soul making in june 2010 but saying that the only theodicy to be asked twice is free will so it could easily be Augustine or Process (I'm thinking more Augustine though)

    I also hate religious language but I think the questions set on it are easiest as you don't have to learn as much as you can just insert parables

    For religious language do you guys think that i have enough:
    - Logical Positivists
    - A J Ayer
    - Falsification Principle
    - R.M Hare
    - Swinburne
    - Mitchell
    - Ian Ramsey
    - Ludwig Wittgenstein
    - Anti Realist
    - R. B Braithwaite
    - Myth
    - Symbols
    - Aquinas
    - Eschatological Verification
    I would say that is more than enough and I probably only recognise half of it

    To be honest it came up in 2014
    Outline the concepts of natural evil and moral evil and explain how process thought responds to the problem of evil.

    However, you never. AQA seems to hate me, so they will give me all the hard questions

    I would say mostly yes. For example, if you get a question on whether the ontological argument is successful you could use scholars to get a more rounded view and it generally makes your argument more logical.
    (Plus it gives the illusion that you know what you are talking about)

    For the Ethics paper (RST4C Moral-Decision Making),is it possible that this question can come up:

    "Examine the ethical issues raised when using [telelogical/deontological/hybrid ethical systems] to make moral decisions" rather than asking about the ethical issues arising from areas of medical research?

    Or would this question be too alike to an A02 question?

    And if it were likely to come up what would we discuss?
