Justice
Justice When the question is asked Can we live in a just world? In effect it is asking us a variety of things. Can there be justice for all? and Can there be equality for all people?.

Discipleship

Does Science Explain All
Does Science Explain All? In the beginning there was darkness. Then there was light. Then there was consciousness. Then there were questions and then there was religion. Religions sprouted up all over the world as a response to some of humanity's most troubling questions and fears. Why are we here? Where do we come from? Why does the world and nature act as it does? What happens when you die? Religions tended to answer all these questions with stories of gods and goddesses and other supernatural...

Whenever fundamentally different cultures meet, there is often a fear of contamination and loss of self that leads us to discover more abo...

US History
US History For a country as powerful as the United States, there comes a responsibility to protect its allies, neighbors, and supremely itself. However, there are times when this sense of responsibility misleads the U.S. into using force that is excessive or unnecessary. We are walking a fine line of political laissez-faire and obligation to intervene, but add the element of a Lyndon Johnson s obsessive fear of the spread of Castro-style communism (Musicant 363), and consequently, we will find o...

Vikings
Vikings The Viking age has long been associated with unbridled piracy, when freebooters swarmed out of the northlands in their longships to burn and pillage their way across civilized Europe. Modern scholarship provides evidence this is a gross simplification, and that during this period much progress was achieved in terms of Scandinavian art and craftsmanship, marine technology, exploration, and the development of commerce. It seems the Vikings did as much trading as they did raiding. The title...

He has pretty much blocked that experience from his mind. Anyway, it also talks about a man nam...

Generally, college classes aren't that much more difficult than high school courses. The ...

Stephen Crane's The Open Book Determinism Objectivity and Pessimism
Stephen Crane's The Open Book: Determinism, Objectivity, and Pessimism In Stephen Crane's short story The Open Boat, the American literary school of naturalism is used and three of the eight features are most apparent, making this work, in my opinion, a good example of the school of naturalism. These three of the eight features are determinism, objectivity, and pessimism. They show, some more than others, how Stephen Crane viewed the world and the environment around him. Determinism is of co...
