There is evidence of this within the Bible when God causes miracles however there is also evidence of this in the natural world as when God causes natural disasters, he is interacting with his creation. The Prime Mover cannot interact with creation as he necessarily exists and is independent from everyone
All humans have a set of basic beliefs about Gods existence, which determine our views about the existence of miracles. Theists, also known as realists, believe that God literally exists as a real divine being, and this includes the characteristics, which are intrinsic to Gods existence of omniscience, omnibenevolence and omnipotence. A traditional view of theism is also called realism, as they believe God to be a real entity and not just a projection of human imagination. Extreme liberal supporters who believe that God is simply a projected of human imagination are called anti-realists. They say that God does not exist in an objective and real sense; they do not think he is a real human entity existing in the world.
That is to say, Buddhists believe that God and the universe are equal. Buddhist do not give respect to any type of personal god as creator, but in contrast see god as an impersonal being without any type of humanistic characteristics. This being said, Buddhist sees the world as not really having a beginning, that everything has always existed and “is a part of god” (Consider, 2013, p. 65). Furthermore, for a Buddhist, the goal is to reach a state of nothingness known as Nirvana. For this reason, “It is only the end of suffering” (Powell, 1989, p. 28), and could even be looked at “as a waste of time to think about where we came from” (Lefebvre, 2011).
Throughout the film Mattie displays leadership by pushing Cogburn though his tantrums and onward toward finding Tom Cheney. She displays intense confidence and unwillingness to give up. Mainly, Mattie proves her insubordination to men by finally killing Cheney herself. Corkin later states that a western is associated with settlement of the frontier; declaring “the need for settlement and nationalism” (Corkin, 127). The main drive in True Grit isn’t a need for settlement at all, but rather simple revenge.
By living with the DeRosier’s April was taught to hate her people, her family, but she also learned to stay strong. Living with the DeRosier’s made April fully realize that people view Métis as “second class citizens”. Living with them was what sparked her desire to be white. She even plotted that “When [she got] free of [that] place, when [she got] free from being a foster child, then [she]would live just like a real white person"(34). The DeRosier’s were also the ones who shattered her dreams of a perfect family by saying “We take you in because your parents don’t want you"(35).
This shows the reader from the beginning that these girls are different from the rest of the school; they are seen as almost belonging to Miss Jean Brodie. We can see that Brodie picks her “set” very carefully depending on their qualities, this can be seen when she rejects the “delinquent” that is Joyce, she does not want her as part of the group, she only accepts a select few, perhaps those who she can most easily influence and mould into the people she thinks they should be. In the first chapter Miss Brodie says “I am putting old heads on your young shoulders” which shows the reader that she knows that she is influencing them in a way that a teacher should not necessarily be responsible for. She is aware that because of her influence her “set” are different from the rest of the school as she says “all my pupils are the crème de la crème”. She refers to her pupils as this multiple times throughout the novel.
The approach to education is a kind of ‘one size fits all’ method in which the child is expected to be passive. Scout has already been taught to read by her father and the teacher, Miss Caroline is upset about that, thinking it extremely inappropriate. The teacher introduces her new method, ‘The Dewey Decimal system’ without really considering whether it will work for these children in this particular school. She is very confident that she knows best- certainly better than the parents and children. She punishes Scout for not conforming to her idea of what a little girl should be like on her first day at school.
Kozol tells how little Pineapple’s parents decided that they needed to send their little girl to a school where she would actually progress and learn curriculum that she needed. Pineapple goes on to become very successful businesswomen and does well in her adulthood. As mentioned before, Jonathan Kozol communicates that the classroom sizes in children’s school years are a critical part of their learning. In the younger grades it is significant to have the one on one attention each child deserves. It is shown that children tend to do better in the lower grades when the class sizes are reduced so that they get the one on one.

That’s because throughout Western philosophy, it was always assumed that the “essence” or “nature” of something is more fundamental and eternal than its mere “existence.” Therefore, if you want to understand a thing, what you must do is learn more about its “essence.” Sartre does not apply this principle universally, but only to humanity. Sartre argued that there were essentially two kinds of being. The first is being-in-itself, which is determined to be fixed, complete, and having absolutely no reason for its being; it just is. This describes the world of external objects. The second is being-for-itself, which is described as dependent upon the former for its existence.
