My Philosophy AS reform is in two days and I'm not confident in answering 15 markers. Any tips on answering questions like:

Is the concept of God coherent?
Is religious language meaningless?
"A mind-independent sensible world is inconceivable". Asses this claim.

I genuinely don't know how to answer these questions. Can somebody help give a brief explanation on what I should write?

Thanks so much!!!

Is the concept of God coherent?
- Probably talk about the euthyphro dillema and paradox of the stone
- Maybe problem of evil

Is religious language meaningless?
- Depending on what you want to argue, talk about
- ayer verification claiming its meaningless
- Problems with verification principle
-Hick claiming it is instead meaningful - eschatological verification - parable of celestial city
- Flew falsification claiming religious language is meaningless
- Hare and Blik response to Flew
-Mitchell and partisan repsonse to Flew

Few other things but don't need to talk about everything as long as you are clear in what you argue and show it in the arguments


"A mind-independent sensible world is inconceivable". Asses this claim.
Not too sure what this question is based on
I think its to do with Berkeleys idealism in his master argument where he states you cannot think of mind independent objects, and by doing so you are using your mind so it is therefore mind dependent and not mind independent

-Critics of this;
-Leads to solipsism
-Does not give adequate accounts of illusions/hallucinations
-Doesn't secure between obejctive space and time
-Maybe critic of role of God

Not sure on this question
