Alvin Plantinga

Alvin Plantinga
Birth 1932

American Christian philosopher who called for people to ‘resurrect’ and return to a philosophy of God after Nietzsche had driven Him out. According to him, true rationality rests on theistic perspectives, and scientific propositions should be verified against Biblical claims. He espouses the ‘intelligent design’ theory, whereby evolution did take place, but under the watchful eye and guiding hand of a sovereign lord, not spontaneously. We outlined Plantinga’s position on the subject of theodicy in the chapter ‘God and Evil’.
