We looked and looked for a way through, but every time we just hit ice and were forced to turn back. What’s more was the outrageous quality of our ship and supplies. Captain Cook was furious with our suppliers when our ship turned out to be extremely poor quality. This, combined with the fact that winter would soon hit, we decided that finding a passage would be highly improbable. Cook had discovered Hawaii and the Sandwich Islands during his earlier voyage, so this was where we headed.
PART A: Explain Mill’s challenge to the teleological argument. (25marks) The teleological argument claims that God designed the world with a purpose. God is often described to be omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent. Mill criticises the idea of the teleological argument, he doesn’t believe that the world is designed by a God because within nature there are cruelty and crimes that are unpunished. Mill argues that if God designed the universe he wouldn’t have created something containing any evil at all it wouldn’t fit in with his description.
However, many other factors played a role in the demise of the Parliament such as the fact that they were ill-organised, the lack of popular support and their inability to enforce decisions. Frederick William IV was partially responsible for the failure of the Frankfurt Parliament as he was unwilling to accept the ‘crown from the gutter’. William IV was aware that acceptance of the leadership may lead to war with Austria. Austria had no wish to see a united Germany and wanted to keep it weak and divided in order to dominate. Frederick William shared this view and was unwilling to potentially cause a war with such a powerful state.
This lead to Conservatives losing the election because many Christians were outraged and humanist sentiment was lowering in the country due to the way Gladstone spoke of the foreign policy, and Disraeli was in no state to argue back, so the public just followed what Gladstone said. Disraeli was unable to defend himself. The pamphlets Gladstone produced as a result of the Eastern Crisis further contributed to loss of support for the Conservatives. This is because Disraeli had previously
Many people felt that Germany had received a very harsh deal in the Treaty of Versailles and they resented the government for signing it and agreeing to its conditions. They were especially angry at the ‘war guilt clause’ which stated tat Germany was fully responsible for the war and had to pay reparations of £6600. The Weimar Republic faced violent uprisings from various groups, not to mention devastating economic problems. Germany between 1918 and 1919 was in chaos. People were starving, the Kaiser had fled to Holland and people hated the government for signing the armistice in November 1918 - they called them the November criminals.
The Whites believed that after killing an enemy it was disrespectful and unlucky to touch a dead enemy. Whereas the Indians believed that scalping an enemy would shame them and would not be allowed into the afterlife, so could not have revenge in the afterlife. Another difference in warfare was the Whites would have long wars and campaigns until the enemy was vanquished or a peace treaty was signed. Indian wars would be different. They wouldn’t go to war as a
An example of these was the non importation movement. In this movement, Americans stopped buying goods from the British goods as a protest against stamp tax. This action was not defiant in nature and did not call for punishment from the British government. On the contrary, it put a lot of pressure on the government and forced it to react by repealing the stamp act (Greene & Pole, 2004). Violent reactions were, therefore, not effective as they received violent reaction from the government and did not bring the desired change to the colonists.
Lastly, Congress also had a problem with the spaniards clue to the facts spain did not want anyone to comw to the westward of the land because that was spains trading system.And due to congress being weak they surrendered. The main cause of the problem was the agreement that led to many conflicts. These problems harmed congress when going against Britain because they had no troops to defend them. 2. How effective was congress under the Articles of Confederation at dealing with the problem in your case study?
The Revolt of 1857 was much more than a mere product of sepoy discontent. It was in reality a product of the character and policies of colonial rule, of the accumulated grievances of the people against the Company's administration and of their dislike for the foreign regime. For over a century, as the British had been conquering the country bit by bit, popular discontent and hatred against foreign rule was gaining strength among the different sections of Indian society. It was this discontent that burst forth into a mighty popular revolt. Perhaps the most important cause of the popular discontent was the economic exploitation of the country by the British and the complete destruction of its traditional economic fabric; this both impoverished the vast mass of peasants, artisans and handicraftsmen as also a large number of traditional zamindars and chiefs.
That thought pattern is rooted in sin and rebellion because the gospel message is centered on repentance of sin and accepting Jesus as Lord. It is not centered on people living as they like and expecting God to adjust his precepts to us in that spiritual state. 2. This culture has become so morally loose until morality is almost non-existent. To live a moral life according to the gospel message is perceived as being too restrictive to a large number of the populace.
