However, it is reasonable to assume that humans have the power to make their own choices. Everyday people around the world wake up and make decision such as what to wear, eat, or do, none of which seem to require the power of a divine figure. Proving the existence of free will in humanity is tricky, but Saint Augustine does well to provide evidence. When God created human beings, he gave them the power of free will, as claimed by Saint Augustine in City of God. This means going through life when faced with decisions, He does interfere or enforce a predisposed plan upon an individual.
People like the idea of believing in religion and a higher power because it gives people something to believe in when nothing seems to make logical sense. This is exactly the case for John in A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. As stated at the very beginning of the book, Owen is the reason John believes in God, and it’s because it helps John make sense of everything that happens that doesn’t seem possible. The things Owen does and the things he knows prior to them happening are only possible if there is some higher power guiding Owen’s life. Thus, when Owen knows when his life is going to end and what he needs to do leading up to it, John can’t help but believe Owen has some sort of connection with God.
In the attempt to define tolerance of ambiguity as a cognitive factor there are double task; to interpret the meaning of ambiguity and to designate what tolerance is.

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind” (Ecc. 12. 12-13). Remember this is the same King Solomon who had been talking about the benefits and downfalls of wisdom. Here Solomon says that wisdom is a benefit of life to gain understanding, but the sole purpose of our existence is to please God, so focus on that.

A typical example that proves nurture is more important than nature is about a boy who lived during the Ming dynasty of China. The three year old boy was a genius at creating poems within three minutes. However, his father refused to provide him opportunities to improve his skills. Instead, he frequently took the boy to banquets held by the rich and would teach how to make a poem, in order to make some money. As time passed, the genius boy had grown mature, but he had lost his talent to make poems because of lack of education.
