William James said it best: “A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.” The majority of society, although not all, seems to be under the assumption that they are critically thinking and forming their own opinions, while in reality all they are doing is taking others opinions, rather than facts, to form their own statements and viewpoints on subjects. James is alluding to the fact that most people remain uneducated on subjects, and do not realize the difference between having an educated opinion and a prejudice. And while this could appear hypocritical to one as James does not have the facts to back up his statement, he seems to indeed be true. A vast majority of the world appears to speak uneducated about topics, lacking the information needed on the subject to be truly educated and able to speak one’s own true thoughts. There are various types of prejudices present in today’s society.

Erwin Schrödinger In Dublin in 1952 Erwin gave a lecture in which he warned his audience that what he was about to say might sound crazy.

William James An American philosopher and psychologist first used the term multiverse in 1895 but in a different context.

SCIENCES: MAGICAL SOLUTION Ever though of how magic and science have a lot in common. The only difference is that people categorize them differently.

This expands the possible purposes of the text. However, it is thought the title of Cunningham’s book, from which the cartoon essay is taken, Science Tales: Lies, Hoaxes, and Scams, is more relevant in creating a purpose as it already makes a certain opinion clear. He refers to scientific theories as tales, which, by definition, are “narratives that relate the details of some real or imaginary event, incident, or case; story” (Dictionary.com). He then continues his title with ‘Lies, Hoaxes and Scams’, which refer to falsehoods and untruths. By publishing a story about climate change in this book of falsehoods and untrue science theories, he already makes it clear that he does not agree with this theory and believes it is wrong.

These justifications, according to the article include the denial of injury. This mean that they accept the responsibility of the act but argue that it is acceptable because no one is injured. This has been proven false by countless amounts of data and studies regarding the same topic. Some people involved in this act have directly come out and stated that it may in fact cause harm to the child because there is simply no way around the truth. Another justification is the condemnation of the condemners or rejecting those who reject them.
