Religious and Ethical Language Are About Facts. Discuss.

...Religious and Ethical Language are about facts. Discuss. In order to analyse whether language, religious or ethical are about facts it is vital to define facts. According to Honderich a fact can be defined as the worldly correlation of a true proposition, in other words a state of affairs make a statement true or false. There are two main schools of thought as to how ethical and religious language is to be treated. The cognitivists argue that statements about religion and ethics possess truth value, and hence can be known. As such the case such statements can be about facts. For example ‘Hitler is evil’ or ‘God exists’ is knowable in the sense that it corresponds to events that are occurring in the world. This view presents the correspondence theory of truth, which is what has now become to be known as early Wittgenstein’s writings. It argues that statements are true so far as in it paints a picture about the world it must relate to and derive meaning out of. As such the case religious and ethical truths are to be discovered. Ethical naturalists such as F.H. Bradley have argued that ethical language is about facts of the world. It is argued that moral statements which are subjective statements about values can be translated into facts or objective statements of fact. Thus it can be argued that ‘Hitler is evil’ is a true statement on the account that he was responsible for mass murder. This view was challenged by Hume. Hume argued that it is not possible to move......

...epidemic affects half the population. To help end an epidemic battle with obesity we need to find out its leading factors. So many factors lead to obesity it can be a complex combination of lifestyle choices. Many people now a days aren't physically active spending hours in front of their television or computer spending most of the day doing work, school work, or leisure actives. From my own experience I spend about 2 or more hours in front of the television or computer. People who are inactive gain weight due to the fact that they do not burn the calories that they take in from eating and drink. Inactive lifestyle raises other health risk such as heart attack, diabetes, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and many other health problems. “Other reasons for not being active include: relying on cars instead of walking, fewer physical demands at work or at home because of modern technology and conveniences, and lack of physical education classes in schools(NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute). “Our environment doesn't support healthy lifestyle habits; in fact, it encourages obesity” (NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute).

Most of the gyms in neighborhoods are too costly, and people cannot afford them, which then turns them to......

Facts About the Number of Hours Teachers Work

...The Facts About the Number of Hours Teachers Work Overall employment of schoolteachers, K-12, is expected to increase largely the next coming years. Especially with the rise of Special Education teachers, as the baby boomers strut into retirement and the uptick of new age teaching instruction comes to fruition. Outside of the Special Education spectrum, employment of secondary school teachers is expected to grow faster than the average job as well. All that sounds great, especially factoring in the perks of having summers off. But why, with all this information, teachers suffer from a high burn out rate? Despite the belief of increasing jobs and a relatively relaxed job atmosphere, the fact remains that teachers are actually one of the hardest working professions in the country. Outside of the mere eight hours teachers work during the day, the hours spent outside of the classroom is largely overlooked in public perception. Teachers are statistically more likely to work at home, than the majority of other professionals. Further more, teachers are least likely to separate weekends from workdays. Jill Hare states, “Fifty-one percent of teachers worked on an average Sunday, compared with thirty percent of other full-time professionals.” (Hare) Obviously preparing for a week ahead can be stressful, the fact remains that grading papers and planning lessons won’t get themselves done. Another attribute often overlooked by people is the importance of being social as a teacher.......

Ten Facts About Saturn

...TEN FACTS ABOUT SATURN Space exploration began several centuries ago with scientist developing a keen interest in the knowledge of space. There was this desire and curiosity that arose, the desire to know what is there beyond earth. This desire arose from people wanting to know whether there exists another world other than the current one we live in, and whether there is life there in space. The discovery of the planet Uranus in the year 1781 by Sir William Herschel, planet Neptune in the year 1846 by John Couch Adams and Pluto by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in the last century is among the notable discoveries. As a result, governments have invested resources that would be channeled towards space exploration. In October 1957, the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, was launched into space. Later on after four years in April 1961, Russian Lt. Yuri Gagarin orbited the earth. Since then, a series of other space visits occurred aimed at studying beyond earth, the contents and properties. Thus the discovery of planets continued. One of the planets in existence was planet Saturn. It is the sixth planet from the sun. It is also the second largest planet.

This will allow you to perform the treatments in your home using a solution call dialysate to remove wastes and extra fluid from the body. During peritoneal dialysis, the abdominal cavity is filled with a dialysate solution. The excess fluid and toxins in the blood move toward the dialysate, which is drained and replaced periodically.
