This very world the child lives in is viewed differently by an adult. As one grows into an adult, and gains an understanding and knowledge about the world around them, it just seems a little less shiny....   [tags: Persuasive, Philosophy, Personal Experience] 1762 words

Re-Identifying God in Experience - Re-Identifying God in Experience ABSTRACT: If an alleged experience of God can constitute evidence for God’s existence, then it must be possible for God to be a perceptual particular, that is, a substantive, enduring object of perception. Furthermore, if several such experiences are to be cumulative evidence for God’s existence, then it must be possible to reidentify God from experience to experience. I examine both a "conceptual" and an "epistemological" argument against these possibilities that is derived from the work of Richard Gale....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Religious Papers]

A Non-Pacifist Argument Against Capital Punishment - A Non-Pacifist Argument Against Capital Punishment ABSTRACT: In this paper I present a moral argument against capital punishment that does not depend upon the claim that all killing is immoral. The argument is directed primarily against non-philosophers in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Oddly, the moral argument against capital punishment has not been effective in the United States despite the biblical injunction against killing. Religious supporters of the death penalty often invoke a presumed distinction between ‘killing’ and ‘murdering’ and avow that God forbade the latter but not the former....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Papers]

The Education System Must Be Redesigned - During the first three decades of the twentieth century, the progressive era had catapulted curriculum theory into a field of scientific inquiry. Its structure had been differentiated and the curriculum content had been expanded. All changes were created to meet the demands of a newly industrialized and urbanized civilization, and as a result “scientific management” became the guide for the development and implementation of the new curriculum. Franklin Bobbitt, one of the 19th century front-runners of scientific curriculum, stated that if the scientific procedures utilized in factories could increase productivity and efficiency, the same procedures could be used to improve curriculum (Flinders & Thornton, p....   [tags: persuasive] 1410 words

My Personal Experience Learning to Golf - Many people take up Golf thinking that it is easy, after all, how hard can it be to hit a little white ball with a stick. This thinking evaporates the first time they step onto a driving range and attempt to hit that little white ball. Golf is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. My experience with golf began in May of 2005 when friends came to stay with us; my wife informed me that I would have to take Roy, her friend’s husband Golfing. I had not been to a driving range (since I was in my teens) and I had never played golf on a course before....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience] 940 words

High School vs. College: A Personal Experience - High School vs. College During high school, I did not have to study as hard as I do now that I am in college. Usually, I would be able to study the day before the test and score a hundred percent.

Argument From Religious Experience - The Argument from Religious Experience The argument from religious experience is the argument that personal religious experiences can prove God’s existence to those that have them. One can only perceive that which exists, and so God must exist because there are those that have experienced him. While religious experiences themselves can only constitute direct evidence of God’s existence for those fortunate enough to have them, the fact that there are many people who testify to having had such experiences constitutes indirect evidence of God’s existence even to those who have not had such experiences themselves....   [tags: Religion Research Experience Existence] 1291 words

An Investigation into the Recall of Persuasive versus Informative Television Advertisements - Abstract Advertising has a pretty simple role: to persuade consumers to buy the company’s product while creating awareness about it. Advertising spam is on the rise in television primetime. It is becoming easier and easier for consumers to tune out advertisements and not pay attention to the message. So the question is: which advertisements “stick” to the consumers’ minds and actually lead to intent to purchase. This study attempts to analyze this by investigating recall differences between two broad categories of advertisements: “persuasive” and “informative” and eventual purchase intent differences that arise due to the advertisements....   [tags: Advertising]

Understanding My Social Location and Experiences - The intersection of dominant ideologies of race, class, and gender are important in shaping my social location and experiences. By exercising my sociological imagination (Mills, 1959), I will argue how my social location as an Asian American woman with a working class background has worked separately and together to influence how I behave, how others treat and view me, and how I understand the world.
