Based off of what I know, people view the world a certain way because that is the way they were taught to view it. Many people develop their values, beliefs and assumptions based on what they are told and taught as children. Knowing that, it is difficult for people to change their beliefs because they dislike ideas that go against the values or beliefs they were taught to be true. They have this constant fear that if they even try to view something from a different perspective, their original values will be seen as incorrect. Considering that, we can use Annie Dillard’s essay, “Sight into Insight”, where she gives her readers two different ways she believes everyone should see the world, in order to understand the comparison made between whales and humans, as mentioned in Brian Doyle’s essay, “Joyas Voladoras”.
Seuss. He is known for his quotes that teach valuable life lessons. One of his most famous quotes that we still use today is “Why fit in when you were born to stand out” (“37 Dr. Seuss Quotes That Changed the World”)? When Dr. Seuss says we were born to stand out he means that not everyone is supposed to be the same and they were meant to look different. People our age live by this line still to this day, because it relates well with high school level kids who are trying to fit in and believe they have to change to fit in.
Steven Pinker made so very interesting arguments in The Blank Slate that caused me to question and try to rationalize how I truly came about to become the person that I am today. When I was younger I was always taught to believe that God has some plan for me and that everything that occurred in my life was all apart of some grand master plan that God had laid out for me and not to worry and that everything was going to work out fine as long as I was a good person. I believed that people were definitely born inherently good and that certain factors for whatever reason caused people to lose sight of that and become corrupted and acting poorly. I believed that we all have a soul and are free to make whatever choices we want but we should try to
Where I listen to Pastor Kara, sing, and read the Bible just about every Sunday. Rebecca was a puritan woman who practiced her religion widely and freely and was always seen with a Bible. She wasn't afraid to show off her religion and was proud of it. Being a Christian as well, I am proud to worship and display the what I believe is the truth. For example, when a girl one day questioned my religion in school and made fun of me for it, I stuck up for myself rather than let myself, my morals, and my God down.
What is a personal teaching belief? Personal teaching beliefs are the thoughts and feelings we have about the way children learn and how we believe we should interact with them based on our own individual experiences (Knaus, M 2018). It is our beliefs that shape our interactions with the children and the quality of our teaching (Knaus, M 2018). Through these interactions our thoughts and feelings towards learning such as joy or anxiety can be subconsciously communicated to the children. This can lead to children developing similar feelings of joy or anxiety towards their own learning (Knaus, M 2018).
Within our families we grow up with a certain code of ethics that is passed on through generations. Within my families we were expected to be respectful, honest, trustworthy and hardworking. Our family came first- friends second these values were never question they were just a given. My family was lenient on many things, but these values had no wiggle room. Growing up into my own person I took these values with me, but I adapted more values into my personal and profession code of ethics along the way.
This quotes defends my opinion as it is a solidifying fact that myths are functions that teach people how to live under the circumstances that they are in. If people can relate to the myths they can solve anything that is a mystery to them. Not everyone has to comply with religion as I do to find answers as I do but there are many different ways as myths come in different forms in our society. More importantly is what humans get out of these myths, the answer gives satisfaction to those who are lost. Those who choose to seek answers from myths get what they are looking for whether they are enjoying life or doing what they like.
The terminology Moralistic Therapeutic Deism was established by Christian Smith along with coauthor Melina Denton in the book “Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers.” Moralistic is defined by Macmillan Dictionary (2009-2018) as expressing strong ideas on right and wrong as well as trying to make others behave according to them. Cambridge (2018) defines Therapeutic as causing a person to feel happier, more relax and become healthier. Deism defined by All About Philosophy (2018) as a “belief in a supreme being, who remains unknowable and untouchable and that God is viewed as merely the first cause and underlying principle of rationality in the universe. ”
I left my sinner ways behind me and went back to church. I found ways to help me cope with my changes and I stay true to my decisions. Some changes are good for the better. It all depends on whether you are willing to accept the change or if you want to continue living the same life. We should never take our life for granted no matter what the situation may be.
I grew up a very good Mormon. I would go to seminary, never missed church, and had leadership positions in youth quorums. I always felt a strong connection to the church when I was younger. I never wanted to do anything to disappoint my mom. She made sure that the church played an important role in my life.
Mine have simply taught me to appreciate the value in education. Since early childhood, they’ve strongly urged me to prioritize school above all else and to learn from their mistakes, not wanting me to struggle as they did. My father has made me realize the importance in pursuing a higher education—it’s the best way to truly be successful and be able to give my family the life they deserve. From my mother I’ve learned the significance of pursuing a career that I will truly enjoy, since it is presumably what I will spend the rest of my life doing. Thanks to my parents, not only have I been university-bound since I was a toddler, but I’ve also genuinely enjoyed learning.
I whole-heartedly believe in treating others the way I want to be treated. That particular phrasing may sound cliche to some, but I believe it perfectly illustrates why being nice to others is so vital. When I was in grade school, and someone would make fun of me, I was offended by their insult, but I always
I personally have become a better person because of FCCLA. I take my education seriously, because before I used to blow off my education. Through FCCLA I’ve gotten so much different opportunities, that I’d be lost if I wasn’t apart of FCCLA. Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals. Without my advisor, I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her.
Morality, principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong, is a characteristic that many people share throughout the world. Every person’s actions are guided by their ethics, but thousands of individuals wonder what influences these certain morals. During the 1930s, citizen’s morals were affected by their religion, as evident in The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. Within this time period, the main influence of citizen’s ethics is based on religion. The Dust Bowl, the start of the Great Depression, marked the decline of the economy and the end to thousands of farmers lives.
