These musings have been prompted by an intriguing discussion on feminist philosophers on what to do when you are handed a religious tract. Participants in this discussion asked, amongst other things, if it is the case that religious believers face prejudice from the overwhelmingly secular philosophical community [Note: I'm restricting my discussion to Christian religious beliefs because I'm not sufficiently familiar with attitudes on other religious beliefs in philosophy].
The PhilPaper survey indicates that the majority of philosophers are either atheists (72.8%) or agnostic/undecided (12.5%). It is a particularly interesting result, because on most other philosophical topics there is less agreement (the exceptions are that philosophers seem to be overwhelmingly non-skeptical realists and scientific realists). There is also discussion on whether philosophy of religion, especially from a theistic perspective would be worthy of academic attention. However, at the same time, Plantinga remarked in a recent interview with the New York times "There are vastly more Christian philosophers and vastly more visible or assertive Christian philosophy now than when I left graduate school". In the most recent issue of Faith & Philosophy he even cautions young Christian philosophers that "a danger we now face, perhaps, is triumphalism...it is now possible for Christian philosophers to work together and publish on topics that would have been beyond the pale forty years ago; there are an increasing number of Christian philosophers at American universities" (p. 268).
