Who is Doug Geivett?
Doug is Professor of Philosophy in the Talbot Department of Philosophy at Biola University (La Mirada, CA). He teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the areas of epistemology and the philosophy of religion. In addition, he has taught courses on the new atheism, and on film and philosophy.
Doug is the author or editor of several books. He is co-editor with Jim Spiegel of the book Faith, Film, and Philosophy: Big Ideas on the Big Screen, and hosts a website for the book at www.faith-film-philosophy.com.

He can be reached for speaking invitations by calling Gail Neal: (562) 903-4764.
Doug’s hobbies include sea kayaking, reading outside his discipline, digital photography, travel, motorcycling, and studying foreign languages. His favorite place in the country is the Olympic Peninsula, Washington. He writes for himself and others. He scavenges for useful tips for writing of all kinds, for any of his hobbies, and for general life management.
He cares about ideas—which ones are true and why we would should think so. He’s fond of asking, “Are you good at believing the things you believe?”
This blog is devoted to exploring all of these themes . . . and more. Doug has always believed that he fell into philosophy because he’s interested in so many seemingly unrelated things. As a philosopher, he lives with the illusion that they’re all connected.
