The Truth Project: The Search of Truth

- Why do we believe what we believe. This question is rarely asked of anyone directly. We live in a culture where the “why” is superseded by the “what”. “What do you believe?” has always been a popular topic for discussion. However, when a believer is no longer faced with the ‘what’ and instead challenged by a ‘why,’ lines begin to blur and minds start to blank. What can we possibly offer in response and from where can we derive our answers. Isaiah 6 gives us the solution: we must gaze into the face of God....   [tags: culture, why, what, jounrey, exposes]

Expert Opinions In Search of Knowledge

- Einstein once said: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” So let’s start answering the question by breaking it down.

And opinions, via the Princeton dictionary, are defined as “a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty.” The question now reads: How much do the personal beliefs or judgments of experienced people, in one area, matter in the se...   [tags: Einstein, Research, KNowledge]

Gilead: Opposition is Futile

- The Republic of Gilead’s power comes from a violent control of its citizen’s actions. Gilead, replacing the Constitution with “the overweening patriarchal principles of Genesis,” uses force and intimidation to inspire people’s natural tendency of self-preservation and uses it to control them (Stimpson 764). They enforce compliance through fear and create a society of suspicion and anxiety. The government’s unadulterated control is evident in the atmosphere of Gilead. The people of Gilead are censored, their actions, emotions, and knowledge is not under their management....   [tags: Moral Immunity, Brainwashing]

Search Engines

- What does make you frustrated the most, when you look at a set of inconclusive results from a search engine. For most people it is the irrelevancy of the result; but sometimes it is the unimportance and trivialness of the result. Let’s look at this problem from another angle. How does the result influence us. “Influential search,” is about searching for information that is most likely to make us take an action. If we are looking for a gadget and see one that is recommended by Steve Jobs -and is not an Apple product; no conflict of interest- we probably find it very appealing....   [tags: Information Technology ]

The Search for Wisdom

- The Search for Wisdom Wisdom, as defined in the dictionary, is "the sum of learning through the ages; knowledge". Plato's Socrates indicates that wisdom is the acknowledgement of ignorance. This statement may be hard to prove as true. If a deaf and dumb man came to realize that he knew nothing, because he is not able to learn it, does this make him wise. I do not believe so. Then, if a prominent professor who has studied for years and has learned many things, comes to believe that he is ignorant to the true ways of the world, does that make him wise....   [tags: essays research papers]

Karl Popper : The Search For Extraterrestrial Life

- Karl Popper questions if the search for extraterrestrial life can be called science or not. According to him, in order for anything to be considered science it must be falsifiable and for that it has to have a test that can falsify it. Karl Popper says that the criteria for science is its falsifiability, or refutability, or testability. Considering Popper’s argument, it can be seen clearly that the search for Extraterrestrial life is actually not science because we can only try to find if life exists and not if life doesn’t exist, so we can’t find evidence that could falsify life anywhere on the Universe....   [tags: Scientific method, Falsifiability, Life, Earth]
