- It is on this article, universally consented to by all mankind, that the Deist builds his church, and here he rests. Whenever we step aside from this article, by mixing it with articles of human invention, we wander into a labyrinth of uncertainty and fable, and become exposed to every kind of imposition by pretenders to revelation.
- Evolution vs. Christianity The concept of evolution has caused such a great deal of controversy. This controversy is between evolution, and its belief of creation; and Christianity, and its belief of creation. Evolution is summed as being the “doctrine of change (Ross 24).
- In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Christian belief encountered significant opposition. Until then, most of the world shared the belief of the ?Medieval world view? that not only was the earth positioned at the center of the universe, but that God was all knowing, all powerful and all good.
- One of the most important dichotomies that make us stop to think is religion and science A dichotomy that started in the renaissance, a period when people started questioning, looking to other horizons, other than religion Before this period the church held back all previous writings that compromised the power of the church Knowledge in science was set free Now people learned and questioned biology, astronomy, medicine, physics, chemistry, and also the views of early Christianity then rejected by the church were released
- St. Thomas More is probably one of the most respected figures of the late Renaissance era. Catholics and Non-Catholics alike look to More at least on a literary level. Therefore, what better way is there to honor his greatest work than by writing about it? However, we must also keep in mind that Utopia is his (Thomas More’s) most misunderstood writing (Campbell 25).
- however Darwin’s findings marked a revolution of thought and social upheaval unprecedented in Western consciousness challenging not only the scientific community, but the prominent religious institution as well.

- My first reading of Nathaniel Hawthorne s Young Goodman Brown gave the impression that he was trying to portray a central character’s loss of faith and spiritual tragedy. Rereading, however, reveals a more complex set of ideas. There were revelations that neither fully condemn nor condone the constructed dicing of good and evil that he utilizes over the course of Goodman Brown’s journey.
- We are all children of God, yet so much diversity, change and contention are showing in the Christian religion today. Which church is true? As we look upon the handfuls of choices given before us the choice is in every citizen. Yet, the denomination chosen comes with consequences and verbal abuse from all the other churches that were not chosen.
- Abortion in today’s society has become very political. You are either pro-choice or pro-life, and there doesn’t seem to be a happy medium. As we look at abortion and research its history, should it remain legal in the United States, or should it be outlawed to reduce the ever growing rate of abortion.
- The agnostic argues that, unless you are omniscient, you cannot say for sure that there are no gods. However, the Atheist believes there are no gods, and most atheists are quite certain. How can the Atheist say there are no gods, without claiming infinite knowledge?
- A fact is something that is supported by clear and incontrovertible evidence. For example, the Grand Canyon cuts through layers of different kinds of rock, such as the Coconino sandstone, Hermit Shale, and Redwall limestone.
- In the first century AD, the Roman Emperor Vespasian decided that Rome needed a stadium that would not only satisfy the crowds, but also convince the magnitude that Rome had become a power to be reckoned with. He wanted them to know that Rome now again had strong and unquestionable power in the world after the strong and bitter civil war it had recently gone through.
- I know the assignment was to deal with a certain aspect of terrorism, but I can’t seem to keep my opinions based on one kind without comparing it to other acts of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in Webster’s New World Dictionary as, “to use force or threats to intimidate, etc.
- But others argue in favor of continuing human cloning research, of continuing to clone human embryos and perhaps cloning adult humans in the future. Some arguments in favor of human cloning might include the fact that cloned human embryos would make research into genetics and genetically related diseases, and their treatments or preventions, much easier and cheaper.
- Have you ever wondered what life at school would be like without ?freedom?? In myopinion I think it would be horrid. Think about it. If we had no freedom we wouldn?t be able to do the things we love most, or choose what friends we hang out with. The freedoms we have now we all take for granted.
- One of the most hotly debated topics going on now is the one concerning the ethics of assisted suicide and euthanasia. Nowadays with all the progress that the medical profession has gained, people who are terminally ill have more options, and there have been continued efforts to give them the “right to die” when they choose this option.
- Caribbean history comprises of a long and tumultuous colonial past. Guyana and Trinidad both have a rich cultural past, however, it is a history that has been marred by it’s own people its adopted natives. Much of both countries’ history has been soiled: First by the race issues created by the Europeans then secondly by petty jealousies each race, East Indian and African, had towards each other.
- Sola Fide, or the salvation by faith alone, has become the basis for the Protestant faith. When Luther split from the Catholic Church in 1517, his new doctrine was based on five key principles: 1) grace and sovereignty of God, 2) faith, 3) scripture as the word of faith, 4) the church as the fellowship of saints and the priesthood of all believers, and 5) the fallibility of man and his institutions.
