Though today many believe that education is what makes a person intelligent and successful, Mark Twain does a great job showing that even though Jim and Huck do not have high levels of education they both show high level thinking. Though intelligence is believed to have a direct correlation with education by some, Mark Twain shows quite the contrary in Huckleberry Finn Although Huck does not have a high level of education, you can clearly see he is very intelligent. An example his intelligence can be seen when Huck convinced three slave hunters that his sick father was aboard the raft with smallpox so that the hunters wouldn’t check to boat and find Jim. When Huck begins to hint that he has a father with smallpox in the boat, they begin to question him and one of the hunters starts, “Well,
The two leaders of the church, Sadoleto and Calvin, believed that faith was required. The leaders contrast in the ideas of the origins of the church. Sadoleto believes that followers of the Catholic religion must follow the faith and authority of one’s ancestors who have passed down the religion for generations. He views religion as (hand me down) that is passed down from their predecessor, who learned the faith from their fathers and forefathers. The concept of obedience is advocated for one in the Catholic Church.
Charles came up with a new theory that actually made sense.

I knew that there obviously were times where that was not the case especially coming from a household where I only have one parent alive.

Asperger’s Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder, is “a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder of social interaction, communication, and a restricted range of behaviors or interests.” There is no exact cause because while doctors know there are changes in the brain that can cause it, they do not know what these changes are.

Throughout life, humans acquire specific traits or personality type depending on the circumstances they must live with. Although difficult situations are thought of as being unfavorable, they often bring about individuals most admirable qualities. The Roman poet Horace makes this point by saying, “Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” By this he means that people often have hidden qualities which only emerge in harsh conditions.
