Predictions For Philosophy in 10 Years

Philosophy in 10 Years | Daily Nous
[A]theism will become more commonplace in the broader culture, leading less atheists to feel the need to go into philosophy to argue about gods. For these and other reasons, there will be a higher proportion of philosophers who are theists. This could result in another fracturing of the discipline (along the lines of what happened in the 20th Century with analytic and Continental philosophy).
In ten years time, assuming I'm still blogging, I'll check revisit these. The last of the 5, quoted from above, is a bit intriguing.

Certainly all manner of philosophers could happen to be theists in their personal lives and it wouldn't make a whit of difference. To the extent theism might become more prominent in philosophical work in fields like normative ethics is disturbing. Nobody, after all, gets morality wrong like theologians.
