- Cancer Treatment - 1,837 words
Cancer Treatment There are many ways to treat cancer. In fact, when you enter "cancer treatments" into any web browser you will find millions of web sites on how to treat cancer. Some examples of these treatments are chemotherapy, oxygen therapy, vitamin D therapy, food therapy, immunotherapy, and many others. Certain types of therapies go with certain types of cancers. For example, vitamin D therapy goes with breast cancer and immunotherapy goes with colon cancer. Cancer has taken the lives of millions of people and I believe it is important to inform people of what treatments are circulating in the medical profession. The human genome project's goal is to map and sequence the tens of thous ...

- Creation Science As Pseudoscience - 1,040 words
Creation Science As Pseudoscience In every civilization throughout history, man has searched for the explanation to his existence. In ancient societys people created origin myths. Every civilization had a unique myth. Some myths involved gods and others involved nature. Sometime around one thousand B.C. the longest standing creation myth was popularized. This creation myth is still in practice today, almost three thousand years later. The myth I am referring to is the Genesis recollection in the bible. In the early 1800s scientists carried out many experiments in the attempt to give scientific proof to the Genesis account. In 1859 when Charles Darwin published his Origin of Species theory, t ...

- Creationism - 1,390 words
Creationism Creationism is a religious metaphysical theory about the origin of the universe. It is not a scientific theory. Technically, creationism is not necessarily connected to any particular religion. It simply requires a belief in a Creator. Millions of Christians and non-Christians believe there is a Creator of the universe and that scientific theories such as the the theory of evolution do not conflict with belief in a Creator. However, fundamentalist Christians such as Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell, have co-opted the term 'creationism' and it is now difficult to refer to creationism without being understood as referring to fundamentalist Christians who (a) take the stories in Gene ...

- Environmental Education Standard Conflict - 1,587 words
Environmental Education Standard - Conflict The Key to Life or Death: An Environmental Education Standard Joe woke up one morning and looked out his window. What he saw startled him: a barren landscape, a desolate land for miles, and the absence of vegetation. He got up, rubbed his eyes, and thought what he witnessed was all part of a dream. Joe walked outside, only to be thrown back by the horrendous smell of toxic chemicals, heat generated from the greenhouse effect and gruesome after effects of acid rain. There are rusted and eroded cars lying around; millions of dead ants scour the baked topsoil. His final thought, before he radioactively melted, how did this all happen? Life on earth co ...

- In My Short Life On This Planet I Have Come To Question Things That Many Take Upon Blind Faith We All Know That We Must Some - 1,204 words
In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a supposed omnipotent being. Yet, there are a few of us humans who tend to question the why's and wherefore's that society puts forth to us. We question the existence of God, or the creation of mankind rather than blindly accepting faith ...

- Jesus The Christ - 409 words
Jesus The Christ The healings, the miracles and all the claims without susceptible evidence are a matter of what you wish to believe. The Jesus of the Catholic faith was a man that was special and worshipped at his birth by wise men. He was the Son of God, the lord Christ, his name Jesus the word of life. His job on earth was to announce god's love to all people. He was Jesus of the suffering savior. In Mark's gospel he is a true messiah, but a messiah who will come in glory only after he has suffered and sacrificed his life for his people. We can compare the historical image of Jesus, which is based on the scientific facts to the Jesus described by the gospels. The latest image of Jesus is ...

- Legacy From The Middle Ages - 406 words
Legacy from the Middle ages Many cultural advancements were made during the Dark Ages which lasted between 500AD and 1000AD. Culture can be divided into five distinct categories such as religion/philosophy, government, science, art/architecture and language/literature. During the Middle ages, there was a great advancement in theology and many of today's finest universities were built such as the Oxford University and some others in Paris and Rome. In the early 20th century, many other universities were built using the First universities as a base. Oxford University still exists, as one of the most respected school in the world. There were also a lot of religious conflicts mainly between Musl ...

- Philosophy - 1,612 words
Philosophy When I was born, I did not know the difference between right and wrong. Now, I do. The word philosophy means the love of knowledge. One type of knowledge is propter quid, which ask the question why or how. In this paper, I will demonstrate how Socrates, Hume and Aristotle, three well known philosophers, would explain how I acquired this knowledge in relation to the principles of right and wrong. Socrates is the first philosopher, I will discuss. Since Socrates did not write anything down, Socrates thinking is told through his student, Plato, who wrote his teachers thoughts. Socrates is an idealist who believes that things are in born. Therefor he believed that before we are born o ...

- Philosophy Of Religion - 1,176 words
Philosophy Of Religion Philosophy of Religion, by David Elton Trueblood is an attempt to fathom not religion as a whole, but the thought processes that are the basis of modern religious thought. The book makes no attempt to explain any individual religious preferences or motifs, only to gauge the reasons for religion in its entirety. While Trueblood doesn't pass judgment on other religions, his personal beliefs are apparent. He is a Protestant Christian, and has been writing books on religion since 1935. Philosophy of Religion is in the spirit of his other books, such as The Logic of Belief which merely serves to explain why persons believe what they do believe. 1957, the year of publication ...

- Religion, Fact Or Fiction - 968 words
Religion, Fact Or Fiction The human mind is easily convinced on what the eyes tell the mind. If you see something in front of yourself, you might have an easier time believing, than if one was to tell a story. Religion is a story that has been told for thousands of years, and not till technology has ripened have scientists disproved many beliefs. It is now that mankind lets religion restrain the mind from portraying the truth about life. Some people claim that science does not have all of the answers when it comes to the business of life. They are right. Science is less a body of facts than it is is a method of establishing claims about the universe. Claims, which can be tested and measured, ...

- Science Analysis - 1,547 words
Science Analysis The late 19th and 20th centuries have seen advances in technology and scientific understanding the likes of which have not been seen before in such a short amount of time in known Human history. In the last hundred and fifty years science has advanced so much that one would barely recognize the lifestyle of Humans before all these technological wonders. In fact, if the scientists and thinkers of pre-industrial society had had a glimpse of the technology available to the average early 21st century man they would probably surely think some sort of sorcery was involved and would not believe for one moment that all these technological innovations were based on concepts of the go ...

- Teilhard De Chardin Place Of Man In The Universe - 1,361 words
Teilhard De Chardin - Place Of Man In The Universe Before the world was made, he chose us, chose us in Christ, to be holy and spotless, and to live through love in his presence, determining that we should become his adopted sons, through Jesus Christ. (Eph. I, 4-5). These powerful words of St. Paul in his first letter to the Ephesians, I think, best characterize the spirit of Teilhard the Chardin, his idea of man and man's place in the universe, and of the common goals of humanity. Just imagine somebody Somebody, whose whole life was a continuous prayer to God, a prayer, in which he constantly asked to break through the seal of traditional authority and common ignorance, and explore the dept ...

- Western Medicines Impact On The Traditional Beliefs Of The Kaliai - 993 words
Western Medicine's Impact On The Traditional Beliefs Of The Kaliai The people of the Kandoka village, located in Papua New Guinea, have quite a unique way of life that differs from that of Western civilization in several ways. They are essentially a simple society based on subsistence horticulture and occasional hunting. With a population of approximately four hundred people, the Kandoka village is the largest of the five coastal villages of Lusi-Kaliai speakers. Travel between these different communities is achieved by foot or sea and usually requires a substantial amount of time. This can be quite problematic in cases of medical emergency. Although a registered nurse is located at an Aid P ...
