... me Philosophy Quizzes SS.R 5-9, 11-12 In the dialogue, Plato reveals that death is the event that releases the soul from its earthly prison, which is the body. For Plato, the soul is the real self --- and is immortal --- and that death and dying is a means to release the person's true being. It means that the body will decompose at death, but the soul is incapable of doing so. 2. The Katha Upanishad, according to Yama's teaching, is the passenger of the chariot, which is the body (1.3.3-4). This is similar to the ideas found in Phaedrus or Parmenides. The need for self-realization is the reason behind birth, thus the need for a chariot, which is the earthly body. Once one's desires are fulfilled and ...

"Sanctity" is "the condition of being considered sacred or holy, and therefore entitled to respect and reverence" (Encarta Dictionary), or, "sacredness, inviolability" (Oxford Dictionary). In other words, it is the respect of being and infrangibility of right a thing merits by virtue of its sacredness. Sacredness, however, implies awesome veneration, the sort of veneration deserved by what is Divine or what is connected with a deity. Consequently, since qualitativeness is by definition inherent in sanctity and sacredness- proper inviolability , respect, and veneration being of classical and...

... Argument on Mackie's analysis on existence of God Introduction Since the start of western thought, philosophers and other scholars have battled with the issue of the existence of God, particularly in a world engulfed in evil. Numerous prominent philosophers have argued the absurdity of the coexistence of God and evil. Mackie is one such philosopher and his work "The Logical Problem of Evil" speaks clearly to his supposition of the nonexistence of God, primarily due to the presence of evil in the world (Aquinas 625). On the other hand, theists continue to defend the stance that God exists and can, in fact, coexist with evil. Mackie challenged theist notions by seeking to demonstrate the invalidity...

Making use of demonstrative arguments that rely on a couple of carefully chosen analogies, Rowe tries to establish that the existence of horrendous evil and unjustifiable human and animal suffering on the face of the earth can be evidences for the non-existence of God. In the introduction, he raises the question, “do the evils in out world make atheistic belief more reasonable than theistic belief?” (182), and maintains an answer in the affirmative as his major precept for...

These are known as stellar mass black holes. The other type of black holes, and the one that we are concerned more about, is the type which is found in the centers of galaxies, which are otherwise known as “supermassive black holes” (Lovgren, 2005).
