Euthanasia
Euthanasia In recent years, Euthanasia has become a very heated debate. It is a Greek word that means easy death but the controversy surrounding it is just the opposite. Whether the issue is refusing prolonged life mechanically, assisting suicide, or active euthanasia, we eventually confront our socity's fears toward death itself. Above others, our culture breeds fear and dread of aging and dying. It is not easy for most of the western world to see death as an inevitable part of life. However,

Impeachment Of The President Of The USA
Impeachment of the President of the USA In the hallways of the Smithsonian, two moralists are debating the impeachment of the President of the United States of America, Mr. William Jefferson Clinton. One is clearly Anti-Clinton (AC) the other, a Democrat (DC), is not so much for him as he is for the rational and pragmatic application of moral principles. AC (expectedly): The President should be impeached. DC (no less expectedly) ; But, surely, even you are not trying to imply that he has comm

And while that is not a particularly pleasant thought, it is nonetheless an description of the typical American omnivore who survives on the consumption of Big Macs and steak fajitas. But there are individuals who do not follow this American norm and have altered their diets so that they do not cons

The Necklace Compared To The Star
The Necklace Compared to The Star The story The Star , which was written in 1970?s, is trying to say that we need to understand the truth of our fate rather than put on blinders and quit refusing everything else that we don?t want to see.

The Joy Luck Club Question: In the Joy Luck Club , Amy Tan touches on an obscure, little discussed issue: the divergence of Chinese culture through American children born of Chinese immigrant parents. With close reference to at least two stories in the book, discuss the truth of this statement. To a certain extent, I agree with this statement. A person?s environment in which he/she grows up is a large factor in moulding his/her thinking, character and behaviour. Going by their titles and genes,

Critical Thinking
Critical Thinking
Introduction Are critical thinking and decision making related to one another? Are they inseparable, or are they only brought together by those who see the value of doing so? Critical thinking is generally viewed as a process which will yield an outcome (a decision, belief, or action) as a result of careful thought, consideration and evaluation. It is thought to exist on the other side of the continuum of impulse and has a tendency to correspond with the value and/or importance of the outcome be
Greater Grace
Greater Grace
I grew up in a fundamentalist Baptist Church. We were not the most fundamentalist of the various Baptist Churches in the city. Actually we prided ourselves on our ?moderation?. After all, we allowed our preacher to wear colored shirts in the pulpit! While we talked a lot about grace, we had no idea how to live out grace.

Dialect Journal …It will do away the force of the argument that God cursed Ham, and therefore American Slavery is right. (19) AIM- he compares the cursing to slavery Purpose- Douglass uses the same reasoning of Noah's punishment on Ham's descendants as to why the descendants of Africa are slaves. He uses this to help justify racism and prejudices. If the lineal descendants of Ham are alone to be scripturally enslaved; it is certain that slavery at the south must soon become unscriptural.
