Reality: Is there a God? If yes, impersonal or personal? – Yes & Personal
Knowledge: How do we know anything with any degree of certainty? Is truth universal, once and for all time, for me and everyone else? – We know because of God’s revelations through the Bible. God created this world; he said this is good this is good. When he created man he said this is very good, very good.
Human Nature: What is a human being? Do we have a spiritual soul that survives the death of the body? – We are created in God’s image; we are not just a higher form of an animal. Yes we do have a soul that survive after death.

All research must have careful observations no matter what type of research is being conducted. It is important to understand the differences between qualitative and quantitative methods in order to better understand the specific behavior being studied. Sometimes it is important to use both methods for the same study.
"Qualitative research methods are the best!"
“Qualitative research focuses on people behaving in natural settings and describing their own words” (Cozby and Bates, p. 114. 2012). This research method is the best because it does not manipulate variables in any way. The results are completely reliant on the participant’s reactions in a natural settings. This method offers...

There are many people coming in and out of my life. Whether this person be a friend, boyfriend, or even people in my classes. However through the constant changes of the people in my life there has always been a steady constant. A person who has always been there whether it be from the moment I was born or as I'm sitting on my couch writing this very paragraph. Someone who in fact has not only given advice, but helped with situations far beyond my years. The person I admire is my father, and even though we are thousands of miles away from each other, he has always been right by my side helping me think through every decision. He is inspiring and teaches me a lot of what the world can give to...

Q) Critically assess the charges against and the defence given by Socrates in the apology?
The apology- a compilation of Socrates dialogue- is a rare collection of works done by Plato which we must treasure. This work gives us a distinct clear picture of what must have happened in Athens in the 5th century. Each deep mystifying dialogue, if interpreted properly, unveils realities leaving us either enlightened or puzzled.
Apprehending, such an abstruse matter, is indeed a tough task. So there may be a possibility of us misinterpreting him.
First we feel that Socrates has misinterpreted the message of 'Oracle'. He has only partially...

I.- Why do people lie?
Everybody lies. It may only be “white” lies, but everyone tells lies or “omits the truth” sometimes. We start lying at around age 4 to 5 when children gain an awareness of the use and power of language. This first lying is not malicious, but rather to find out, or test, what can manipulated in a child’s environment. Eventually children begin to use lying to get out of trouble or get something they want. White lies, those concocted to protect someone’s feelings, are not a big deal at all. The person, however, who seems to feel compelled to lie about both the small and large stuff has a problem. We often call these folks pathological liars (which is a description, not a...

The story of Oedipus the King, is about his destiny and choices he makes along the way. Oedipus from the beginning was destined to kill his father and marry his mother. The God’s had already set this life for the king, but they never expected him to make the decisions he made to fulfill his destiny.
When the play begins, the citizens of Thebes are begging their king, Oedipus, to take away the plague that threatens to destroy the city. Oedipus sent his brother-in-law, Kreon, to talk to the oracle at Delphi to learn on what to do. When he returned, Kreon announced that the oracle instructed the city to find the murderer of Laios, the king who ruled Thebes before Oedipus. As soon as they find...

The 19th century witnessed a shift in the perception of literary art, particularly poetry. The 18th century conception of art and literature was founded upon reason, logic and rationality. Tradition had valued art and literature for its ability to imitate human life. This however arguably took a step back and paved the way for the 19th century view that art and literature was to established on the grounds of pure emotion, imagination, external and internal experience. Or as William Wordsworth would say that ‘[...] poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.’ The poet therefore assumed the role of the mediator between man and nature. The role of the poet was arguably in place...

This report is based upon the book The Search for Significance, written by Robert S. McGee. The book publisher is Thomas Nelson, Inc., it’s the 2nd. Edition and was copyrighted in 1990. There are 339 pages and includes The Search for Significance Workbook. This is my first reading of this book and it was chosen because my church started a women’s small group in September that was going to be discussing the Workbook. I had wanted to join the group, and wasn’t able to, thus seeing this book on the required listing for this class thought I would get insight from the book and join the group next year.

In Plato's Cave each allegorical figure represents many different things. The cave represents shelter. The cave is a sense of confinement everything about the cave simply becomes like home. The cave is where the prisoners felt safe even though it was like jail. The sun, well the sun in my opinion is hope to a new life. The sun was a new world nothing like the darkness of the cave. The sun provided hope and new light to a world that didn’t only consist of walls. Shadows now became the physical people, place and things you can touch. The prisoners are life like people who easily are influenced. Influenced to believe nothing else exist but shadow figures. The prisoners are just people; people...

Media and Its Responsibilities
Growing up we are told that lying is bad and that telling the truth no matter the consequence is always the right thing to do. As we grow up we learn the difference between a bold faced lie, which always causes more damage than telling the truth, and a little white lie, which usually causes little to no harm. For example lying about stealing money from your dads’ wallet and blaming it on someone else is a bold faced lie and the other person usually faces consequences that they don’t deserve. Telling your three year daughter...

If your opponent is of choleric temper, try to irritate him. If he is arrogant try to encourage his egotism. (If the enemy troops are well prepared after reorganization, try to wear them down. If they are united, try to sow dissension among them.
General Tao Hanzhang, translated by Yuan Shibing, Sun Tzu's The Art Of War
To capture the enemy's entire army is better than to destroy it; to take intact a regiment, a company, or a squad is better than to destroy them. For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the supreme of excellence. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence.

Which of the four approaches is the most important in your current or future ministry context?
“Systematic theology thus begins with the totality of biblical revelation and the extra biblical truth, provisionally respects the development of doctrine in the church’s history, draws out the teachings of Scripture via sound grammatical, historical, and cultural exegesis, orders the result into a coherent whole where the interrelatedness of its parts...

Assumptions and Fallacies
HUM/111, Professor Jennifer Morin
What are assumptions? How do you think assumptions might interfere with critical thinking? What might you do to avoid making assumptions in your thinking?
Assumptions are beliefs or ideas of something with no proof of evidence. Assumptions interfere with our critical thinking because we aren’t utilizing our skills to our best knowledge. It hinders individuals to think critical because we have that perpetual block that stops us from looking at every angle of the equation. We allow our assumptions to take direction instead of preventing and looking at the situation to choose the truth about the situation. In order to avoid using...

Unsent Letter from Beatrice to Benedick after Act 1 Scene 1
You say that you are loved of all ladies, only me excepted, that’s where you are wrong. You say that you’ll die a bachelor, as if any woman in her right mind will wish to marry you. You delude yourself and your self-importance. You shall die a bachelor simply because no one will accept you; you should feel lucky that I even deem to speak with you.
Although I spurn marriage and all it stands for, as you do, I at least have the respect of men, whilst you lack even the appreciation of any woman who possesses even a shred of intelligence, for you only know how to buy...

Secular Study for Christians
Discussion Board Forum 1
The presentations presented in this week’s module have a lot of truth as to why secular literature is used in modern day Christianity. I do agree that electronic media is not a tool that is valuable in learning literature. Lesson 2 clearly talks about how the thinking is done for you and may not even have the plot or main points in order and only access the emotional side of your thinking. As human beings, we are constantly growing and stretching ourselves as each individual person. Life is constantly moving forward and secular materials help each person mature. Non-secular literature also helps a person grow with faith...

It gave them courage to live a better life by treating others better and never give up on their dreams.

Sophist vs Socrates
During class, we were presented with an article called “The Ivy League, Mental Illness, and the Meaning of Life,” written by William Deresiewicz, a former Yale English professor. In this article, Deresiewicz explains how an elite education can lead to a cycle of grandiosity and depression in adolescents. He believes the nation’s most prestigious schools are full of “excellent sheep” because they just follow instructions without thinking why they are doing it. They have not been given the opportunity to find their own path in life. Deresiewicz thinks these schools are flawed and that we are creating a society where some kids are animals in a scientific experiment....

At the beginning Macbeth and Banquo come in being the best of friends, joking around and having their arms around each other. We can tell they are best friends at the start because Banquo calls Macbeth 'my noble partner' which gives the impression that they are good friends. After the witches have vanished and Macbeth is proclaimed thane of Cawdor they start hiding things from each other and make this noticeable by starting to stand further apart. At this point Macbeth and Banquo do not trust each other as much anymore.We can tell this because Macbeth starts speaking aside and talking to himself and the audience. 'Glamis and thane of Cawdor: the greatest is behind', This suggests that he...

Bias comes in many forms, including race, age, gender, and ethnicity and can be universal or location specific (Fiske, 2010). Biased individuals believe the biases they are applying to others are right without regard for the truth (Fiske). Prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination are all somewhat similar; however, they are also very different. Each form of bias is performed by one individual or group of individuals judging another individual or group of individuals prior to obtaining factual knowledge of the individual or group (Fiske). However, each form of bias is performed with a different focus.
An individual behaves in a prejudicial manner when he or she has an emotional reaction...

Idealists believe that we know objects through the way we perceive them, that they are mind-dependent. However, realists, who believe objects are mind-independent, proposed the missing explanation argument in order to disprove idealism. This theory supposes that everything is dependent on the mind; if this is true, then nothing in idealism can explain the regularities in our experiences. Although idealists and realists both provide good reasoning, neither argument by itself completely explains the perception of objects. We need to apply both views.
Internalists have made many attempts to answer the consistencies of experiences. One of their answers is that in order to believe that...

In a way where the teller most likely did not finish telling the truth about the story and or lied about their way on the journey.

This passage from The Great Influenza describes the scientific process and how a scientist must have the courage to “embrace” uncertainty to make the unknown known. Through the use of metaphors, analogies, and other rhetorical devices, the author further conveys a scientist’s tedious process to reveal a newfound truth.
Barry begins by contrasting the strength and conviction of certainty with the weakness and fear of uncertainty. He uses clear, definitive language to convey broad ideas. He establishes direction in his second paragraph as he lists the qualities an ideal scientist should have. He emphasizes that a scientist must have “the...

“Describe the meaning of the shadows in the analogy of the cave.”
The analogy of the cave is what Plato used to portray his idea of the World of Forms more clearly.
In it, he tells us to imagine that there are a group of prisoners who have been held in a cave all their lives, and have never left it or had any experience of the outside world. They are all chained facing a wall, so that they can never see the cave’s entrance. At the entrance of the cave, there is a fire, and whenever someone or something passes that fire, it casts a shadow onto the wall the prisoners are facing. The prisoners think that the shadows are reality.
But one day, a prisoner breaks free and rushes outside the...

How I Plan to Improve My Study Habits
Did you ever stop to wonder what sets apart the really successful students
from the average ones? Why do some students who appear to study all the
time just get by, while others who don’t appear to put in as much time and
effort do well? Is it all related to IQ and genetics or are some other factors
involved? The truth is that success in school is not so much determined by
sheer intelligence as knowing how to study.
Studying is a skill. Being successful in school requires a high level of study
skills. Students must first learn these skills, practice them and develop
effective study habits in order to be successful. Very often the study habits

Lying is ubiquitous. It is seen everywhere and it is truly an art form, it comes in many shapes and forms: white lies, doublespeak, and dismissal are some of many forms of lies. Whether lying is a positive or a negative thing is a question that many people have different views on. Humans are very selfish, everyone lives for themselves, everything someone does is something that is in their best interest. Whether you're a Politician, insurance salesman, a real-estate agent, or simply just an average Joe doing nothing special you're going to be lying countless times throughout your life to people you hate and love.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in the town of Porbander in the state of what is now Gujarat on 2 October 1869. He had his schooling in nearby Rajkot, where his father served as the adviser or prime minister to the local ruler. Though India was then under British rule, over 500 kingdoms, principalities, and states were allowed autonomy in domestic and internal affairs: these were the so-called 'native states'. Rajkot was one such state.
Gandhi later recorded the early years of his life in his extraordinary autobiography, The Story of My Experiments with Truth. His father died before Gandhi could finish his schooling, and at thirteen he was married to Kasturibai, who was of the same...

In the Tragedy of Hamlet, Shakespeare uses dramatic irony to keep the audience engaged in the play. A good example of dramatic irony in Shakespeare’s Hamlet is found in Act I Sc.5. The king’s ghost appears to Hamlet and reveals to him the truth about his death. The whole country of Denmark knows that the king had been bitten by a snake, but only Hamlet and two of his friends know that in reality it was the king’s own brother Claudius who killed him. Through this incident, Shakespeare manipulates audience’s sympathies, develops character and the conflict of the play.
Claudius is a character that awakes antipathy in the audience from the beginning of the play, because of reasons such as...

“The Lesson” is among Bambara’s best-known stories, and I really love it. It combines her focus on social justice with her interest in telling stories about children maturing. One of the most provocative elements of this story is Sylvia’s opaque response to Miss Moore’s lesson. The Schwarz angers her, she does not understand why, and cannot decide whether to direct that anger at Miss Moore, at Sugar, or at white people. Yet despite her initially rebellious response to the excursion, Sylvia’s chance to witness the vast disparity between rich and poor seems to inspire her to work harder.
Interestingly, the children...

Did we read or see the news today? Take a bit of time to reflect on how reliable the information you received is. Were you at the given events? Did it actually occur? Is it the whole truth or a twisted version of the story? Are their sources reliable? We tend to believe what the authority tells us even though we do not actually have any prove. Obviously I am not saying we should disregard everything the media tells or shows us; however we much consider that there are people with hidden agenda out there. The media tells us what we want to hear but it’s not all true. So to what extent is the media reliable. Over the course of this paper, I will examine two ethical theory and one perspective...

William Wilberforce is remembered today for his long Parliamentary campaign for the abolition of the slave-trade. It was a difficult task while he had ties with the church, you see, the church had invested a great amount of money in the slave buisness of Africa and West India. On March 25th of 1807, the Act of Parliament for Abolition finally received the Royal Assent and became law. (Blah blah blah) However that was not the end of slavery. The law strictly prohibted the trading of human beings, not the right to owning them as property.

The piece in the book compares lying and bluffing to bullshitting. He explains that lying is a falsehood and so is bluffing. The liar and bluffer are intentionally getting the facts wrong. Bullshit on the other hand is basically a counterfeit. Frankfurt uses an older Mr. Simpson from Eric Ambler’s novel “Dirty Story” and he said to his...

Before the end of the European Renaissance, math was cleanly divided into the two separate subjects of geometry and algebra. You didn't use algebraic equations in geometry, and you didn't draw any pictures in algebra. Then, around 1637, a French guy named René Descartes (pronounced "ray-NAY day-CART") came up with a way to put these two subjects together.
Rene Descartes was born on March 31, 1596, in Touraine, France. He was entered into Jesuit College at the age of eight, where he studied for about eight years. Although he studied the classics, logic and philosophy, Descartes only found mathematics to be satisfactory in reaching the truth of the science of nature. He then received a law...
