Religious language is often vague, imprecise, and couched in mystery.
In the twentieth century this linguistic imprecision was challenged by philosophers who used a principle of verifiability to reject as meaningless all non-empirical claims.
Further, some may consider the relationship between religion and science.
Ultimately, the three main themes considered are existence of God, knowledge of God, and nature of God.
It includes the analyses of religious concepts, beliefs, terms, arguments, and practices of religious adherents.
The scope of much of the work done in philosophy of religion has been limited to the various theistic religions.
The scholars in the field should not be presumptuous on the existence of a deity when coming up with their thoughts.
Most of them focus on proofs and inconsistencies in the topic of existence of God.
So a number of religious claims, such as “Yahweh is compassionate” or “Atman is Brahman,” were considered by the positivists to be cognitively meaningless.
When logical positivism became prominent mid-century, philosophy of religion as a discipline became suspect.
