Science, Philosophy and Belief in God

This paper will defend that “Descartes gave God so much power in his philosophical system that without God the entire system would collapse, which proves the he was a religious philosopher as well as a strong supporter of science.” He uses the logical deduction to argue for the existence of God, claiming that to erase all doubt, he must examine the reality of the existence of God, and “... must examine likewise whether He can be a deceiver...”, two truths without which he does not see that he can “ever be certain of anything.” (Descartes Meditation 3, paragraph 4). He uses the idea of God bein ...

Critical Thinking and Emotions

There are two approaches: critical thinking or intuition and emotions. The matrix of Ethical Lens Environment suggests four different ways of understanding the personality. The analysis of the lens gave the ground to claim that, at some point of view, I prefer rights and responsibility. Therefore, I can use my core values: rationality and autonomy. Rationality helps in reasoning while determining my duties as universal rules that each person should follow. Very often, I value autonomy over equality. The evidence that protection of the other’s rights has no use and is not so precious so can ...

The Development of Nursing Research

The research is undertaken primarily to generate nursing knowledge. The purpose may be to fill in knowledge gaps in response to changes in the health care environment or to provide opportunities for training and gaining some valuable experience in the research. For example, the government conducted research on the state of nursing education in the 1940s to ensure the supply of proficient nurses needed during the 2nd World War. The current focus of nursing research on evidence-based practice is spurred by reforms strengthening accountability in the health care sector. However, research activity ...

The Eco Friendly Printing Ink

In traditional practice, since the early 1960s, petroleum has been used in the production of printing ink despite its adverse effects to the environment. Petroleum-based inks are widely used due to the fact that they have quicker drying time than other natural and artificial pigments that are also available; these inks improve the overall productivity through enabling printers to run and perform faster, and they have high efficiency in printing as the work is much accurate, precise and presentable as explained by Larsen. In spite of the many benefits of petroleum-based inks, they are major ...

The Genetic Engineering

Psychological Consideration and Sociological Effects of Genetic Engineering The greatest controversy concerning the use of biomedical engineering technology, especially in cloning, is the risk posed to the health of the potential babies. According to tests conducted on animals, biomedical babies have a tendency to die during organogenesis in the womb or shortly after birth. Although this is not clearly understood, it has left scientists and various religions wondering whether it is worth trying in the first place if the products do not seem to survive anyway. In some instances, these babies w ...

The Left Brain versus Right Brain

The Left Brain Versus Right Brain and its impacts on learning The human brain is a complicated organ, which controls all the activities of the body. Its complexity is as a result of direct consequence of the natural and biological evolution that plays a significant role in the morphological structure and divisions. According to Barbara (1982), the human brain is divided into two different parts; the left and right hemispheres, which execute separate functions but with twin working relationships. These two halves are connected together by the corpus collosum. Zdenek (1983) inferred that the ...

The One-Child Policy in China

The one-child policy was established in 1979 by Deng Xiaoping, the Chinese communist leader, who aimed to limit the uncontrolled growth of Chinese population in order to alleviate the struggle for scarce resources. Despite the fact that the policy was supposed to be temporary, it continued twenty five years after its endorsement. Although, the main goal of the policy was reached and 300 million births had been prevented, it seems that the one-child policy has more drawbacks than advantages. On the one hand, one child families have many economic benefits. A “one-child glory certificate” offers ...

Chinese Immigration to the USA

It is obvious that people always look for a better life. They believe that they can find it abroad. Therefore, migration became immensely popular in the nineteenth century, when everyone was tempted by the famous “American dream” concept, and came to the USA to find better job opportunities, social liberty, and get other benefits. People of different nationalities migrated to the country, but the number of immigrants from China and Ireland was the biggest. Since they were representatives of different civilizations, there were many considerable differences in their way of migration. With the ...
