It is therefore not surprising that the grounding for this notion has been the subject of heavy debate. Taking central stage in the history of this debate are Hume and Kant and their examinations of the concept have been very influential. I will attempt to show how they unfold their different conceptions of cause and effect and how the two compare to each other. A note on Terminology: While Hume and Kant discuss more or less the same subject matter they do as most philosophers, discuss it in their own (or that most native to them) terminology. For sake of clarity I shall utilise the concepts of each in their respective sections.
The basic concept of religion and morality, especially divine command theory, is very simple: what God commands is good, therefore only do that. However, things begin to complicate when we begin to answer questions, such as ‘why are Gods commands intrinsically good?’. The Euthyphro dilemma outlines the problems with asserting the goodness of God. In the great philosopher Plato’s text, ‘The Last Days of Socrates’, Socrates questions Euthyphro over the piety of the Gods. Which follows on from which?
Colonialists place "...the book of God's Word over the book of God's Works, and theology over psychology." (Entwistle, 2010, p. 145). Neutral parties keep psychology and theology separate for fear that one will contaminate the other. And then there are Allies, those who believe that both psychology and theology belong to God and that "all truth is God's truth". They believe in total integration and know and respect the two books of God.
This discussion of rhetoric and writing was such a significant contribution to the topic that it is still being taught today. Socrates discusses the relationship of good speeches and bad speeches in respect to the persuasiveness of the speech. He does this by acknowledging that what makes a good agreement or speech is the layout of it.
Therefore, man is obligated to repent and put his faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and bear good fruit or face the righteous judgement of God. In Romans 1:20, Paul reveals that the natural world testifies to a supernatural cause. According to the scientific evidence, nature itself had a beginning. As Dr. Frank Turek points out, the supernatural cause that created nature must be spaceless (Because it created space), timeless (Because it created time), immaterial (Because it created matter), powerful (Because it created out of nothing), intelligent (Because the creation event and the universe was precisely designed), and personal (Because it made a choice to convert a state of nothing into something; impersonal forces don’t make choices). This evidence is consistent with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Paul eluded to this when he said that God’s invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature is clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom.1:20).
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.
BUSI520: Integration of Faith and Learning: Character Jennifer L. Johnson Liberty University Dr. Coleen James August 23, 2014 One of the virtues that can be found within the pages of the Bible is that of having a firm, yet godly character. When one examines a business, it should also have a firm character. Romans 12:2 is a verse that supports this point. “Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is- his good, pleasing, and perfect will.” Paul was speaking about how as Christians, we should not strive to follow the mold of society, but rather follow the will of the Lord.
The ethical issues that are at the discretion of the statistician can thus be addressed from a Christian worldview. For instance, one of the ethical issues is the ownership of data and the disclosure of private information regarding the client and the data collected. This ethical issue can be approached using the golden rule of “do unto others as you would have done to you” or loving ones neighbor as yourself (Moreland and Craig, 2003). Another ethical issue that arises with the practice of statistics is the concept of chance and probability. This can be addressed with the Christian worldview that scientific truth is not something that is predetermined and instead adapts itself to interpretation and human requirements (Geertsema,
Ashley Guerrero November 30, 2009 The Matrix and Multiraciality “What is real?” is the main question behind the 1999 movie The Matrix. The plot talks about how everything anyone knows is an illusion and that the human race is controlled by machines that have created a virtual world humans see and recognize as real. The protagonist is Neo, a computer hacker living within the matrix unaware of its existence until Morpheus offers him a choice to leave the ignorance and see the matrix for what it really is. In their way are the Agents, computer programs that enforce the matrix’s control over the human race and try to shut down anything that could be a threat which in this case are Morpheus and Neo. What does this have to do with multiraciality?
