I don’t think we can make or agree with such a strong statement that atheists killed God because everyone has their own views and nobody can really change what other think unless there is some weakness in our own point of view. And I believe that God is perfect and ultimate and not believing in his existence may lead us to quite rocky path and we wouldn’t have any such purpose in life. "If life ends at the grave, then it makes no difference whether one has lived as a Stalin or as a saint. Since one's destiny is ultimately unrelated to one's behavior, you may as well just live as you please" (Craig) in this quote William Craig discusses that when we have no purpose in life and our final destination is grave and that's the end of everything then it makes no difference whether we lived
Before every gym lesson, I reminded myself that even Sherlock Holmes, the otherwise so intellectual sleuth, was a great athlete. In my world, the Holmes-related knowledge was applied to an enormous extent, proving that all knowledge is applied, but only carries value if it is applied in the right context. Climate science may very well serve as a good discussion topic for scientists, but it is not on a personal level that it should be applied to fulfill its
Pearson was “a wonderful compromiser …he could bring together opposites” (Baldwin 31) which is what connects him and other great leaders together in leaving a great influence on their country. Then, there is the controversy between Diefenbaker and Pearson, which caused many doubts in Canadians towards Pearson’s choices/judgment. However, in the midst of those doubts Pearson managed to prove that he was the ideal leader for Canada by _____ ________________________________. In all, throughout Pearson’s political life despite the flaws and controversy, he indeed established unity in Canada by the skills he provided through the leadership we pay tribute to
Considered to be the father of modern philosophy through his approach to the elements of philosophy. Attempted to find the meaning to the natural world and Descartes believed that all the truths were linked together through some sort of way. Many philosophical books were published by Descardes through his time as a philosopher. The way Descartes studied theoretical physics, many scholars believed that he was a mathematician at first through his study of Cartesian geometry. Pope Alexander VII put the works of Descartes into the index of Prohibited Books.
While studying he meet Simone de Beauvoir, who would eventually mean a great deal to Sartre as she became his lifelong friend up until his death in 1980. After finishing ENS and his second attempt at the ‘Agrégation’ (which is a civil service exam for the public education system in France), by adapting his writing style to the needs of the examiner, he began his teachings in philosophy. There he received a grant to study in Berlin with a renowned German philosopher Edmund Husserl, and it was where he was first introduced to the concept of phenomenology in 1933. He also spent a brief time being influenced by Marin Heidegger, who was a famous twentieth-century philosopher. In 1938.
This quote shows how oppression is largely universal while demonstrating how uncomfortable topics should not be avoided for fear of said discomfort. The differences that separate us as a people such as race, class, age, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality demonstrate the intermeshed oppressions that both men and women experience uniquely from one another. In “Age, Race, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference”, author Audre says that racism and sexism is a “belief in the superiority of one race/ sex over all others.” We have all been manipulated into thinking how society wants us to think and this mindset will set up a lifetime pursuit of attempting to decolonize this way of thinking that has been instilled in us for so long. It is almost impossible not to recognize the difference when you know it is there. Race only exists if we allow our consciousness and belief to come
As a teenager, he was interested in the chemicals that compose fertilizers and the pigments and nutrients of plants that lead to his eventual pursuance of chemistry through college and eventually earning himself a PhD at UCLA. After that, he went to Switzerland for post-doctorate research. Before embarking on his famous research of the Heck reaction, Richard Heck moved from California to Delaware to work and research first at Hercules Corporation before being hired to the University of Delaware as a professor. His research on Heck reaction began in the late 1960’s until early 1970’s and was already published by the time his fellow Nobel Laureate winners, Ei-ichi Negishi and Akira Suzuki, presented a variant of the same Heck reaction which used the same palladium catalyst on different base reactants. Heck’s research was not recognized greatly during that time and due to that, he lost research granted money which prompted him to retire from research.
Proponents believe they when these specific races are being discriminated on media they should be more strict and have consequences for their actions but opponents believe when the public is being discriminated on media, it’s to show that these people are not great for the public, they might even include recent facts about how countries are being destroyed and there are killings by these specific race. I argue that racial discrimination on the media should be addressed more than it already is. I think this because hearing horrible news can cause poor mental and physical health. (“Trump is a Textbook Racist” - Jay A. Pearson) Minority races are still shown more negatively in media than white people. (“Disrupting Implicit Racial Bias and Other Forms of Discrimination to Improve Access Achievement, and Wellness for Students of Color” - David J. Johns) Also there are videos on media, about people getting verbally abused especially races that are constantly attacked.
Philosophy was my other love and best fit for my desire to study everything. Early philosophers contemplated things like the natural sciences and modern philosophers thought about how the human mind works. It was a treasure trove of information and something that stimulated my appetite. I studied abroad in Germany and, in anticipation of one day applying for graduate school, I wrote a thesis with the German
Sociologists claim that analyzing and observing human traits and characteristics represents a social process of racism among societies. These traits created racial distinctions among our society and therefore, constructing a model of hierarchy that placed white or lighter skinned people at the top and those of color remain on the bottom. Sociologists saw that these racial distinctions were not evident if 1.) they are not universally measurable, 2.) they are not genetically (or
