Governor Stevensen’s statement of veto of a bill wanting to prevent cats from killing birds while on the loose is very convincing. It is clear that the Governor feels strongly opposed to the bill. At the same time, he points out the silliness of needing to make legislation for simple, docile cats, who do not have many freedoms or liberties as it is. His tone, diction, and use of pathos rhetoric illustrate his opinion well on the proposed bill he is
Ammirus was an iconoclast who publicly expressed atheistic views and abolitionist beliefs which deeply influenced and had a lasting impact on the young Clarence Darrow. Clarence would early on learn to be an iconoclast and even relish the role of the person who would upset conventional society. The legacy of Ammirus would lead Darrow to reject the majority stance on many issues and to defy conventional religious views that were much more prominent Darrow’s views on religion changed, he said; ‘I am an Agnostic because I am not afraid to think. I am not afraid of any god in the universe who would send me or any other man or woman to hell. If there were such a being, he would not be a god; he would
The ‘Lockean Liberalism’ is a paradox only in theory. I view Machiavelli as a true philosopher whose wisdom and wit won influence all over the world. I know this may seem like an irrational opinion given his portrayal as a cynical and ruthless person, but throughout this essay I will try to prove that Machiavelli’s realism and honesty regarding human nature, and his impudent philosophy regarding a ruler and his subjects, can be clearly experienced in the reality of our present society. John Locke, an English philosopher, was born in the sixteenth century. He is renowned for his inspirational work and remarkable philosophy on ‘Freedom’ and ‘The Preservation of One’s Property’.
Bill Maher’s funny approach to the inconsistencies and irrational conceptions within religion truly reinforce my stance. The hypocrisy in this film is geared towards religious believers, however, I did notice some hypocrisy within his own dialogue. A few scenes following the intro he makes a statement that religion is selling an invisible product. This seems hypocritical to me because this is exactly his line of work. Bill Maher is a comedian.
However, in the New Testament God heals and individual who is blind and lets others die. A strength of Maurice Wiles argument is that it appeals to educated believers of God and scientific laws. This I because Wiles says that the concept of miracles can exist as it is "logically impossible" to prove miracle wrong scientifically. By saying this, Wiles is allowing religious people to also uphold their beliefs in scientific laws. A second strength of Maurice Wile's argument against miracles is that it allows a re-interpretation of miracle.
Jed’s uses a scientific simile: “happiness running through me like an electrical current,” to enforce that their love emotionally brutalizes him, but because Jed is an extremely bipolar character, it also makes him happy. Also, Jed specifically uses scientific similes to persuade Joe and make him understand the “strange adventure” between them, for Joe is rather used to scientific language, and comparing yout love to a “steel cable” is more appealing to Joe. This shows how much he knows Joe, and how obsessed Jed is, if he knows what language to use in order to implore Joe’s attention. Jed includes pathetic fallacy in order to show his joyful emotions: “disc of sunlight.” Jed’s language is tremendously lyrical and clique : “sunlight falling on you,” sharing the codes of an archetypal love letter. His lyrical language is divinely expressed within an incessant romantic atmosphere: “you were last night in the rain, across the road from me, with unspoken love between us.” Joe’s ‘love’ is so strong that it heightens Jed’s senses: “I see with such clarity, in
James Turrell James Turrell is undoubtedly a great artist, but a discerning scientist as well. He transfers his observations and researches based on studies as a perceptual psychology and a psychology of official perception to a world of art. His favorite material is a light, which is a main subject of majority of his works. Using the light as a source of artistic experiences, James Turrell pays our attention to a meaning of light, about which a modern human does not remember. Formerly the light was identified with gods, was a source of life fully determining a rhythm of day.
For the people who believes in god Occam’s razor works in favor of their theories, because if god makes the existence of the universe that is the best hypothesis for people who believe in god. Scientists use Occam’s in scientific experiments, they use it in evolution and biology. Scientist accepts the simplest possible theoretical explanation for existing data. Occam’s razor is all about cutting out crazy theories. Science tends to prefer the simplest explanation that is consistent with the data available at a given time.
He uses this reference to introduce how guys enjoy tinkering. This approach to expressing a point is found to spark interest in the read because when you think of guys you know, or if you are a guy, tinkering is a relatable typical occurrence. Granted that the use of a dramatic example such as this is an incredible leap of faith in regards of offensive writing, but it seems as if this way of thinking resonates in a manor that brings even the most brilliant of scientists on a normal level. The evidence of these national events and its relation to “guyness” is questionable, but Barry reassures the reader by stating “ Every statement of fact you will read in this book is either based on actual laboratory tests, or else I made it up” (414). This is an interesting form of support for an argument fact and fiction being used to back up the main point.
Peer reviews were difficult for me, because I do not think of myself as a very critical person, but the course overall was very helpful. The first, and my personal favorite would be the explanatory essay. I enjoy reading, and I liked the fact that I could reflect on the book as a whole, giving my thoughts on the events as they were unfolding. The more I wrote, the more defined my opinions became, and the more confident my writing grew. Where I stated, “I believe this novel was Bronte’s life work, masterpiece, and what she felt about this world in general,” is a prime example of my explanation of the novel.
