Charlie’s mindset of normalcy was to become intellectual; Charlie would bound at the first possible second to acquire his dream. Once Charlie was introduced to an experimental operation, Charlie craved the idea of being the test subject. Little to his knowledge, Charlie would be the first human trial with the operation. The desired after effect of both the doctors- apex opportunists- and Charlie was to increase the intelligence of a disabled man. The doctors exploited Charlie’s optimistic state, which shielded him from the dangers of the experiment.
At one point in time, Socrates ' good friend Chaerephon went to the Oracle at Delphi and asked whether any man was wiser than Socrates. In response, the Oracle said that there was no man who was wiser than Socrates (Apology 21a). In his famous trial, Socrates explains his first reaction to the oracle 's statement: "You see, when I heard these things, I thought to myself as follows: "What can the god be saying? What does his riddle mean? For I 'm only too aware that I 've no claim to being wise in anything either great or small.
There are deeper messages than what is literally being said. Two morals are given in this story; beware of flattery and of one’s pride, and take only what you need or what belongs to you. Flattery is defined as, excessive and insincere praise, especially that given to further one's own interests. This means that someone uses flattery as a way to deceive someone in order to receive some personal gain. In the tale, the fox uses flattery to trick Chanticleer, this way the fox could take him and eat him.

This is why we can depict that Anton wins the race as he is genetically better then Vincent because of his artificial gene
Some individual experience happiness through life- long accomplishments, such as getting a noble peace prize in science. In life an individual could look at happiness like a gamble. The choice a person makes always affects them in the future. Not knowing the unknown scares individuals. Because nobody has a definitive answer for happiness people turn to another power, the supernatural.
How did the Earth originate? Was there any supernatural being behind the creation of the Earth? There have been many claims and theories on how the Earth originated such as “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Nebular Theory” meanwhile there were two theories and claims that caused a debate for almost more than a century which is Evolutionism and Creationism. The Theory of Evolution is false because it could not prove any scientific evidence unlike Creationism that base all of it facts on the Bible, that has been proven scientifically and historically accurate. The Evolution Theory is one of them most common ways to contradict Creationism as it tries to prove that the world is over 4.5 billion years, Humans evolved from apes by natural selections,
Have you ever looked at your life and thought that maybe if you were smarter or wiser, maybe it could have gone another way? Have you ever wished that you could have natural intelligence that, like other people, could help you through your life? If you could have an operation that could make you smarter, would you do it? Many people think that having intelligence or being a genius is the most important thing to have in life, as if knowledge and wisdom are the only things that can get us anywhere in this world. But, as illustrated in the story Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, it’s the people around us who help us get through our everyday lives because of the happiness and even hurt that they may give us.
“None but those who experience them can conceive the enticements of science. In other studies you go as far as others have gone before you, and there is nothing more to know; but a scientific pursuit there is continual food for discovery and wonder.” (pg. 36) As shown, he has an itch yearning to be scratched, to be known as the one who went beyond any other scientist before him, and do what was believed to be impossible. However, advances in science are only beneficial when they make the lives of people easier, such as the lightbulb. The lightbulb allowed people to
They will claim that it will create balance in the family but they will not realize that it will also create imbalance between the population of male and female in the society. Fifth, you can create a child who will be as intellectual as you. This will open the door for cloning. Who does want to have a copy of themselves?

Who actually won the Scopes Monkey Trial? The case wasn’t closed with a clear winner or loser. In my opinion, there was no winner, there was and still is no set religion or set course of study for science. Many people have argued over whether creationism or evolution is right, but people don’t always focus on what the schools are teaching us. Creationism used to be the primary belief, and now more and more people are losing faith and looking at evolution.
For instance, in a Washington Post news article published in 2014, Abby Phillip reports that a researcher, Dong Pyou Han, manipulated data regarding an HIV vaccine that supposedly worked on rabbits for personal fame. Phillip reported, "the rabbit blood became contaminated with human antibodies ... Instead of admitting them, [Han] continued to spike future samples... results that were considered to be a breakthrough" (Phillip). Humans are often willing to defy their own values and morals to achieve personal fame. Because recognition and prestige are such emotional luxuries, many people will ignore the consequences of their actions.
