The Bethel School District had suspended the respondent, Matthew N. Fraser for the span of three school days as well as the school decided to revoke his name from a roster of potential speaking at special ceremonies such as graduation. The respondent’s parent reciprocated action by bringing their child’s infraction of his first Amendment right. This includes his freedom of speech.
Should we teach the flat-earth theory in public high schools? Of course not, right? But shouldn’t schools give students both sides of this debate and teach the controversy? Well no, because there is no controversy, except in the heads of the flat-earthers. A similar feud is currently going on over whether intelligent design, another psuedoscientific “theory” should be taught in public school. Shockingly, the nonsensical argument laid out above seems to be the strongest case the intelligent design crowd seems to have in favor of their position.
Whoever says science states facts isn’t saying the truth because science is always evolving and making new discoveries. Climate change is going to be a big concern, it’s going to cause a mass change in agriculture, the rising heat will affect farmers and how they grow crops. The burning toxic chemicals cannot lead to a positive outcome as well, it may rise health problems and create different types of dieses that’ll affect mankind. Science has its predictions, but how solid can these predictions be? “The Myth of ‘Settled Science.’” is an article written by Charles Krauthammer that addresses a different point of view on global warming. Krauthammer questions if what these scientists are saying is actually true or if it’s a way for them to manipulate the people. I agree with Krauthammer that not everything we are told about global warming is true, and that not everything can be blamed on global warming; however, I disagree that global warming is not happening.
Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist.
The Genesis Flood is an extraordinary event that occurred thousands of years ago. Approximately 4,800 years ago, God decided to flood the Earth in order to cleanse the world of sin. God gave Noah the task of building a gigantic vessel large enough to hold two of every species in the world. Welcoming this task with open arms, Noah constructed the Ark. The enormous vessel sailed the waters for months until the water resided. The Ark found its final resting place on Mount Ararat in modern day Turkey. Feeling terrible, God promised to never flood the Earth again. Recently, the Ark has been found at this exact location mentioned in the Bible. Despite the discovery of its location, some people still do not believe
It takes nine months to get to the red planet. Nine long months in a spaceship without much food, oxygen, water, little living space, and only other people to keep you company. Colonization of Mars is not okay because the planet is deadly, the trip is long, and the atmosphere is frigid.
Like any appreciated myth, the Columbus story blends truths and truthiness, something that appears to be so normal and clearly genuine, yet isn 't. Columbus faced restriction. He persevered. He sailed west. He found land (not Asia as he had anticipated and kept on accepting yet the New World). In any case, these truths have nothing to do with the state of the earth—Columbus and every one of his spoilers realized that the earth was round. The truthiness in the myth lies though, from one perspective, it demonstrates a one sided old-fashioned Spanish Church that clung to a backwards thought regarding the state of the earth and which failed to listen to reason and proof. Then again, truthiness likewise portrays Columbus as a semi mainstream mastermind guided just by reason and proof.
Columbus Day is an American and patriotic holiday celebrated in all 50 states of the U.S since 1971, when congress passed the law. America should not continue to celebrate Columbus Day because he brought cruelty, heś been given false credit, and the legacy of the day is not as wonderful to Native Americans and African Africans. With ¨discovering” America, he also brought cruelty to the the indigenous people because he tortured, killed, and encourage his men to rape the native women. There are things that he didn't even do and he was still given credit such as discovering America. The legacy of the Columbus Day is not as remarkable to the Native Americans and African Americans because it just reminds them the cruelty that happened.
In the article “Christopher Columbus: Here or Villain” written by B. Myint starts his article by correcting a common false facts about Christopher Columbus. Also Myint mansions the great success of a man with 41 years old that his journey changed the world. The author claims that in the 15 century was a widespread believe among the educated Europeans that the earth is rounded. The writer mansions the deal between the Spanish Royal family and Christopher, which he must agree on a necessary terms to fund his trip. According to the author Christopher Columbus enslaved the native Americans right after they peacefully and generously welcomed him and his crew. The writer states that after seven years of Christopher deal with the Spanish Royal family
The Traditional view of meaning was formed long ago throughout the middle ages, resting on two core assumptions . First that being able to understanding the meaning of a term is only a reflection of the person physiological state since grasping a concept is an act done in the head. A physiological state is a state of the mind in relation to certain memories and physiological habits. The second assumption dictates that intension (A concept in the head) fixes extension (A reference to something in the world). In other words two terms cannot differ in extension and have the same intention. This perspective on meaning has not gone without criticism though as Putnam describes frege and carnap’s “rebellion” against the traditional
Global Warming is affecting the entire world. The issue of global warming is important because it’s affecting everyone. This problem is controversial because some people believe that that global warming isn 't real and others believe it is. There is evidence that global warming is real because some scientist agree that the earth 's rising temperatures is due to all of the pollution. My opinion on it is that it is clearly real and we need to do something to stop it. If we do not stop all of the pollution in this world, it can affect everyone 's way of living in the future.
In ancient times, various cultures interpreted the strange objects suspended in the sky in various ways. Some thought it was just a work of god and accepted it. Others recognized patterns in the ways the objects moved. Thus, astronomy was born. Around 600 B.C. it was accepted that the Earth was not a flat object through the insight of Greek philosophers from looking at the round shadow that the Earth cast on the Moon during lunar eclipses and how the stars seemed to move as one approaches the North Pole. (Larsen, 37). Eudoxus was philosopher known for the idea of a geocentric
Imagine a world where your house is as deserted just as the town you once lived in, also you have states that are touching water will probably be under water. A world were the air is so hot that it can hurt your throat just breathing. I am a Floridian and love the heat, but I hope that my generation does not have to go through global warming. Global warming is when “The earth’s surface becomes warm and as a result emits long-wave ‘infrared’ radiation”(Maslin pg. 4). Sometimes I wish that global warming is just the world pulling a prank on us, but I feel its not doing that with us. Global warming is one of the greatest discussions this world has ever had. The U.S.A. is discussing why this is happening. In the unsigned article Global Warming the writer wrote, ” Crowded landfills, polluted water, and poor air quality are just a few of the environmental problems that affect both industrial and developing nations”(“Global” par.1). Perhaps less obvious but no less ominous a threat to the environment are the general increase in temperatures worldwide and the resulting climate changes. This phenomenon, known as global warming, could have serious negative effects on humans and all other living things on Earth. Global warming is a complex problem, and governments have had great difficulty deciding how to address it. Some people think that it is the work of the world where nothing we do can ether change it or anything we do will prevent it. While others say that the
The earth is one thing that everyone wonders who created it? or how it got here? The answer is God. People doubt it all the time thinking of random different ways the earth could 've gotten here. They have been successful and have managed to come up with many different way. They have come up with ones such as evolution, big bang theory, and many more. As christians we always need to know and believe where we came from which was
Technological advancements throughout today 's society have started a revolution. In an average day, a human makes decisions over a million times a day, from choosing where to go to which shirt to wear. Having choices in life gives a person control over themselves and behaviors. Using science and technology in a person 's everyday life affects their choices and decisions. Everyday technology is a factor that is considered when making a decision, whether it is from news articles or perceiving technology as another living being. Two articles, "The Mega-Marketing of Depression in Japan," and "Selections from Alone Together" highlight the problem. In the article, "The Mega-Marketing of Depression in Japan," by: Ethan Watters, shows the effects social media has on the people of Japan. Watters describes how culture is changing and could be making people change their judgement on their own culture. In the article, "Selections from Alone Together," by: Sherry Turkle, the technological movement is beginning to take over the present-day millennials. People are treating machines as humans, which complicate their decision making. Even though, the power that science and technology bring into our everyday lives improve some conveniences in life, the reality is that it controls the way people live their lives daily.
