I don’t consider your / Pronouncements so important that they can / Just…overrule the unwritten laws of heaven. / You are a man, remember” (Sophocles 12). This seen illustrates, that Creon does think he is god, and has no respect for the real gods. Antigone in so many words is explaining to him that he is wrong, and a person should not be denied burial rights for any reason. Creon does not like her explanation, and explains that “I don’t care if she is my sister’s daughter.
Reverend Hale's closed mind prevented him from seeing the true John Proctor Hale arrives at Proctor's house to warn him that Elizabeth has been accused of witchcraft. Despite their reputation as model citizens, Hale jumps a to any opportunity to label them as evil. Elizabeth does not give him what he wants to hear, so he turns his attention to
Vardy’s example further supports this with the analogy of the king who falls in love with a peasant girl. Although the king could have forced the girl to marry him, he chose instead to win her round of her own accord since love cannot be created by compulsion. In the same way that God had to allow humans to choose to love and worship him of their own accord. Hick states that God chose to create humanity at a distance so they could have awareness of him but would not be directly in his presence. Hick argues that if God had created humanity in his presence then the gap between God and humanity would be so small that it would limit our freedom.
When Bob sent her a chocolate lab, Sarah realizes her mistake and seeks to void the contract. However, because Sarah made the mistake, she does not have the power to void it. Further, since she never inquired about color or breeding, there was no misrepresentation on Bob’s part. In fact, since the price was substantially less than the price quoted by Sally, this should have put Sarah on notice. Conclusion: Since the contract is not voidable, the term that “all sales are final” is
Human wisdom is limited, because its bases off of prior knowledge and instinct, the wisdom of the world from philosophers, scholars, Greeks, Jews, and Gentiles is foolish to God. The only way to have true wisdom is by the Spirit which is the Holy Ghost through Jesus Christ. “No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely giving us. (1 Corinthians 2:11-12 NLT).
In both myths, they had a similarity of disobedience. In Genesis, Adam and Eve failed to obey. Adam was told that he was allowed to eat food from any tree except the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But God didn’t want him to be left alone in that garden. So instead he put creatures with him but that didn’t help.
Scout learns a major lesson which is not to kill a Mockingbird. She learns that Boo is simply an innocent mockingbird and does not harm just sings and Boo just suffered from his fathers cruel intentions which made the town see him as a harmful creature. The children and Boo never had a physical connection or chemistry but this barrier is soon broken when he saves the children form Bob Ewell. Scout now understands and see’s Boo as actually a real creature although she still points at him, which shows her transformation is still in progress she treats Boo like a real person. When Atticus fails to understand that Boo was the one who killed Bob, Scout explains Atticus a lesson which is usually visa versa, that you must never kill a Mockingbird and by exposing and giving him the negative publicity towards Boo it would be like killing him in a way.
Cornered into admitting to participating in dark magic, she still cannot take responsibility for her actions and instead accuses others of cooperating with the devil. A final example of untruthfulness appears when Reverend Samuel Parris, Abigail’s uncle, questions Abigail after he catches her dancing with the other girls in the forest. Abigail fibs instead of telling the truth. Parris desperately tries to save his daughter, Betty Parris, from a sickness that takes hold after he catches them dancing while Abigail chooses, instead of potentially helping Betty, to tell him, “There is nothin’ more. I swear it uncle” (Miller 11).
The society that Friedman uses as an example is a static society, never changing, content to use the same outdated processes for more modern progressive issues, and as such, interpretation is necessary. When applying outdated laws to a modern situation, Friedman is correct in most cases by saying that the interpretation becomes distorted, but most commonly observed is that it is the results that end up distorted when one applies outdated laws to modern situations. In Jewish folklore and mythology, Adam’s first wife was named Lilith. Instead of being created from Adam’s rib like Eve, Lilith was created at the same time as Adam, during Rosh Hashanah. But Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam, believing that as they were created at the same time, out of the same material (unlike Eve), they were then equals.
The counter argument to this though, is that animals do not fall under his jurisdiction and so the brutality that is nature is out of his control. God can only then make humans all good; which is apparent to be untrue (war, rape, murder.) In effect, Gould has showed that there could very validly be no active god. Whichever way a person’s belief systems lean, this paper by Stephen Jay Gould is a very insightful read into one way of thinking. Whether that means it solely educates those who firmly believe in god that there are other views, or it converts a person to non religious views, it is a worthwhile read.
