The issues in traditional Western philosophy of religion
revolve around theism and its counterview. At the heart of
theism is a belief in God, a personal being and creator of
but organically different from the universe. And this God is
believed to be knowable through revelation, or reason, or
both. A counterview of theism would be the position that
denies that there is such a being as God, and that the
universe came to be by means other than what is narrated
by theism. In defense, theists had made a tradition trying
to justify their belief in God over and against the doubts
and denials of the counterview.
