That's so weird that your teachers didn't give you the questions. Like I can't imagine anyone's still doing them as mocks, there's nothing bad about us seeing them.

PHILOSOPHY:

Either,
a) Explain what is meant by the problem of evil. [20]
b) ‘Irenaean type theodicies are still credible in the 21st century.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Explain Freud’s arguments for religion being just a product of the human mind. [20]
b) ‘Empirical approaches prove that Jung’s views on religion are wrong.’ Evaluate this view. [30]

Either,
a) Explain Hume’s challenges to the cosmological and teleological arguments for
God’s existence. [20]
b) ‘Challenges to the cosmological and teleological arguments for God’s existence
are very effective.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Examine religious experience with reference to conversion and visions. [20]
b) ‘Religious experience is the only influence on religious beliefs and practices.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Examine the concept of religious language as symbolic. [20]
b) ‘Symbolic religious language is only meaningful to religious believers.’ Evaluate this view. [30]

Symbolic language has come up so many years in a row and I can't tell whether thats a sign it's definitely coming up or definitely not.

ETHICS:

Either,
a) Explain John Finnis’ development of Natural Law. [20]
b) ‘Finnis’ Natural Law is effective in dealing with ethical issues.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Examine Proportionalism as a development of Natural Law. [20]
b) ‘Proportionalism is not effective in dealing with ethical issues.’ Evaluate this view. [30]

Either,
a) Explain Bentham’s Act Utilitarianism. [20]
b) ‘Act Utilitarianism clearly promotes justice.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Explain Virtue Theory. [20]
b) ‘Being a good person is more important than doing good actions.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
Or,
a) Examine the implications of determinism for moral responsibility. [20]
b) ‘Moral responsibility is nothing more than an illusion.’ Evaluate this view. [30]
