Moreover, the certainty of only having one, predetermined future is a concept that does not sit well with many people. Personally, I have a problem with only having one possible future though, that is where the mystery I found lies. Van Inwagen challenges compatibilism and incompatibilism, two positions which seek to organize and

Hume suggests complete skepticism is not useful since "nature is always too strong for principle" (Hume #), making this philosophical view unrealistic to human nature. Hume, therefore, came up with the idea "mitigated skepticism." This method tries to limit philosophical inquiries to the abilities of human intelligence while also exercising caution in reasoning. Even so, the application of “mitigated skepticism” in everyday life is a hard task. Calculating each of our decisions with a system of logical steps is very time consuming.
The major premise does not have an exact number; instead it is suppressing relevant evidence. The minor premise is guilty of appealing to authority, where there is limited information about the “scientists”. The reader is left with no knowledge about their expertise or how closely related the “scientists” are to this topic. The premises are relevant as they are connected directly to the conclusion but they are not adequate. For example, more specific evidence could have been used instead thus making the argument a hasty prediction.

However, due to it being based on a solid system of numbers, theories and evidence, it does not provide room for human opinions and justifications. This could be due to the fact that it only abides by its fixed set of principles. As proof refers to ‘an argument, which convinces other people that something is true.’ (Michael Hutchings, Introduction to mathematical arguments, 1) Therefore, belief holds a lower rank as compared to proof. This will be further elaborated through the examples of conjectures, axioms and
The administration of a structured questionnaire creates an unnatural situation that may alienate respondents. Studies are expensive and time-consuming, and even the preliminary results are usually not available for a long period of time. Research methods are inflexible because the instruments cannot be modified once the study begins. Reduction of data to numbers results in lost information. The correlations produced (e.g., between costs and benefits, gender, and access to services or benefits) may mask or ignore underlying causes or realities.
Finding answers to our curiosity can sometimes be a daunting task. When every attempt, to find a scientific explanation behind a phenomenon fails, to believe in something beyond is the only way. There are many events, incidents, etc that science failed to explain, that lead us to believe in parallel world, dark world, life beyond Earth etc,. To prove the experiences that are within the body is possible, but to explain experiences out of the body seems impossible. This research paper focuses on Out Of Body Experiences in relation to Sleep Paralysis.

This, however, cannot be done with every piece of information we acquire since it is not humanly possible. Memory therefore proves to be a untrustworthy way of knowing that can only be trusted in very specific cases like the ones pointed out previously. Historians always try to get the most unbiased and true information possible in order for them to then share their knowledge, but this is only viable to a certain limited point. A solution to this everlasting limitation is receiving information from as many sources as possible and then coming out with one’s own conclusions. Doing so might not conserve the truth in historical information, but it is the closest we can get to acquiring knowledge through the use of
