For the better part of the Century, psychologist has obsessed over one simple yet puzzling question… What causes the different behaviors in individuals? As everyday humans, it might seem like this question isn’t as difficult as previously thought. If you were to ask a person on the street this question they might give you an answer like,” we are who we are” or “we are born this way”. Psychologist knows better though; they understand that there is a multitude of components that attribute to human behaviors.

John believes that the principles of religion are studied, and faith is solely based on beliefs. John views organized religion more corrupt than beneficial. Beliefs towards religion and faith can be confused in regards to what is real or not. J. Denny Weaver states, “As the narrator then unfolds Owen’s story, what brings the narrator to faith is the series of coincidences that occur in Owen’s life, which Owen and eventually Johnny believe are the action of God, along with Owen’s premonitions of his future that eventually prove true” (Weaver 14). John portrays his confusion towards religion and faith, instead of connecting with either option.

Even so many of the Theologians in Descartes time disagreed with Descartes proud announcement to having conquered Scepticism, the question of how to tell true knowledge has played a part in the change of scientific method toward a more math based empiricist method which we still hold to in the postmodern
Theory first saw its development as a mere sociological theory that intended to better explain social patterns, such as values and ideals, as well as its development over time. Due to the lack of explanatory contextualization in previous research, this section is dedicated to deepen the reader’s understanding over the theory and how it evolved over time.

Social constructionism is a major theory used in the academic study of religion. Social constructionism is the theory that reality, truth and meaning is just society just running its course. Bringing this into perspective there have been many different viewpoints as to whether or not this is a valid idea or whether this becomes a paradox of some kind.
