I’m working on a Philosophy question and need guidance to help me study.
Answer each question in 9 sentences minimum .
Put things in your own words unless the question asks for a direct quote. For required quotes, draw quotes from the original course readings, not the introductions before readings in the iBook, the course videos and notes, or any other outside sources.
- Define omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent. Explain how each of these attributes of God/Allah are illustrated in Genesis 1-3 and Qur’an 35:1-13.
- Describe one similarity and one difference in how the Genesis and Qur’an readings portray creation. Include a direct quote from each reading as part of your answer, putting quotes in quotation marks and using in-text citations such as (Genesis 2: ___, Everett Fox translation) and (Qur’an 35: ___, Hilali-Khan translation). The difference you find can be a difference in what is emphasized in the two passages.
- Do you think the creation accounts in Genesis show a hierarchy of men over women? Why or why not? Use two quotes from Genesis 1-3 to support your view. Also, explain how you think we should respond to the Genesis creation stories today (reject them, follow them, ignore them, take a certain lesson from them, etc.)?
