The Cold War Era Works Cited Missing The late 1940s to the mid 1980s the American society saw what could quite possibly be titled the biggest technological effect on society. This era, The Cold War, was a period in which fear of attack or invasion and a need to be superior reigned in the American society. It led to the development of space technology, during the Space Race, communication systems, and military technology in what has been appropriately deemed the Arms Race. On October 4, 1957  a huge change concerning technology in society occurred. On this date, the United Soviet Socialists Republic (USSR) launched Sputnik into outer space.
. In movies like Space Cowboys and Armageddon, show the shooting up of rockets into space as a glorious experience. One of the most recognized visions of space culture is this romantic ideal of space being the final frontier. This romantic ideal connects to neo-global-colonialism, being able to conquer and colonized space, which gives Americans the acumen that they are the Super world power that imposes domination. For example, in Tom Wolfe’s book the Right Stuff, shows astronauts as womanizer, intrepid men, who are battling and trying to conquer the final frontier, in the space race against Soviet Union.
God has made everything for purpose we cannot do what we want because God has given brains to humans, which makes them unique which leads to think different, act and react different. Having everyone equal looks incredible in planning and it would in no way work out that way. If the rule was allowed to force handicaps on the naturally talented, how could society ever make developments? (“The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law.
However before that, I will define some keywords that will be essential in my approach. I have defined accepted as gaining the approval of society and authority, discarded as being completely rejected or forgotten, today as being the present and tomorrow the future. Now, considering the first issue raised by the statement; to what extent is the statement correct in depicting the nature of science in general? I find it as a rather pessimistic view of the nature of scientific theories. It may be true that the history of science shows that many of what we considered as mature knowledge 100 years ago were to a certain extent false.
The argument of God’s omniscient and human free will has gone for thousands of years, the core of this argument is if God was claimed to be all-knowing, hence in possession of infallible foreknowledge of human actions, therefore, humans should not have free will. The concept of God is all-knowing and human have free will is inherently contradictory, therefore, they cannot coexist. This argument implicated predestination and often resonated with the dilemma of determinism, because God was supposed to have given mankind free will. In order to understand God’s omniscience, we must distinguish the important difference between human foreknowledge and divine foreknowledge, which the former is the contingent true, and the latter is the necessary true. Human beliefs are contingent true, because it could happen to be true and it could also have been false.

We would still be stuck on a “flat” world. In the same way, Evolutionists today are clinging to the outdated beliefs of what Darwin could see, with his limited vision of the earth. It was a logical conclusion at the time, since they could not see what our technology allows us to see today. But now that we are beginning to plainly see the evidence of a round earth, we must embrace and discover a new theory of life.
This essay is supposed to be on “contested meaning,” an argument over what is the true meaning of something, of someone. The only problem with that is that meaning is just something that humans make up. All of this “meaning” that humans talk about is just a bunch of connections that we have made through knowledge of other connections we have made. If we step far enough back in time we can take the example of an non-sentient creature. This creature has been imbued with some patterns that their ancestors have seen to not change throughout generations, and we have given these the name of instincts.
Philosophers, however, cannot prove that such a value exists. Singer in his work attempts to give a point of inquiry to this, but quickly concludes that it is almost impossible to state that animals don’t register pain or pleasure in the same ways that a human registers the feelings. Basically, since each species has the ability to feel pain and pleasure it is impossible to separate the human species from all other kinds due to that basic fact. Which means Singer disproved a theory before the evidence could be provided or created to support its basis in the first place. This means that there is no concrete argument that defeats

However, keep in mind that, even if we accept life is sacred, it is not clear what the best expression of that belief is. That is, if we accept that "life is sacred" it is not clear what action is then recommended. For one, we can't possibly mean by "life is sacred" that the life of e.g., a rational, self-conscious being must always be preserved no matter what.
However, this sentiment conveys perhaps the single most compelling argument for why an anthropocentric approach to environmental ethics is in fact, the most justified. It is the instinct of all living beings to prioritize oneself and ensure a future for those to come (Acari, 2017). Though this justification for protecting the natural world might seem selfish or short-sighted, it is in fact, the nature of all life to preserve self-interests. In response to the counterclaim that plants and animals should be regarded with natural rights like humans, Blackstone would rebut that these beings are incapable of “free and rational thought” (Desjardins, 103). This is most likely in part due to his purely anthropocentric perspective that human life alone is worth consideration.
