Stereotypes Of Conformity

Good Essays
Between mind and body, we are oneself. We are who we are and we can 't be like everyone else. Many people fall into the trap of conformity. However, even in conformity, every person is different individualistically. We have our own unique characteristics that we develop which makes us who we are. For me, I define self between the standpoints of mind, body, and spirit. I have approached life through my own perception, not by anyone 's doing. Without these three personal aspects, I could not live the same life that I had in the past.

Through the mind, I am able to think how I want to think. I am not trapped to one way of thinking. This way of conformity is depicted very well in Pink Floyd 's music video, "Another Brick

This is a very controversial topic between those who believe and those who don 't. However, as a Christian, my faith in the lord is very important to myself. As I believe in the lord, I resemble my opinions of there is a higher being that has created us. As I am adopted, I was very lucky to come to the United States compared to my original country and be blessed with the parents I have today. I believe this is the lords doing. These belief 's allow me to generate my own opinions on religion and the greater being. When others who are Atheist 's talk about there being no greater being, I like to listen to their reasoning and beliefs. With my mind able to step out into different conversations, I am able to understand how science may prove our existence in life. While this opinion is not my own, I still find it fascinating to learn how science might prove the meaning of life. Now the mind is interacting with my sense of spirituality and holiness. My religion does have an impact on my opinions, however, since my mind is open, I like looking at other religions and their beliefs to constantly change my original opinions. This is very similar to Alain de Botton 's "Atheism 2.0"4. He takes the standard morals of atheism and combines them with various important characteristics from other religions. De Botton does not believe in a higher being, however, enjoys the cultures from many other religions, such as, education, …show more content…
Some may argue that they aren 't related, however, I am open to that opinion and would like to generate a new area that I could possible create new fundamentals to my belief. As a generation, I feel that we shouldn 't have one way of thinking. There are to many conflicts when people submit to conformity. Moving away from conformity and exploring new areas is how we as people move ahead in the world. As time keeps moving along, we need to keep up with

    Lennox uses God to explain all of these phenomenons and because God cannot be falsified by using science, Popper would side with Lennox rather than Dawkins. Kuhn's philosophy is based on the fact that there will always be gaps in the science, but he also believes that these gaps will be filled by someone as the time goes on. As time passes revolutionary stages in science occur and these stages cause a shift in the focus point of science. Once this focus point shifts, it opens the door for new developments in science, because it promotes innovative thinking. With this new found thought process it helps to fill the current blanks in science.…

    The solution to most problems that society is facing day-to-day is not black and white. A gray area is always present which can be perplexing to grasp our thoughts around. Similarly, the question concerning the idea of religion conflicting with science is not a black or white answer but rather a gray area one. Religious faith and scientific understanding, as the two are used to explain both natural and supernatural phenomena on one’s own accord, are not in conflict with each other because it is a personal choice to allow it to contradict or conflict one’s own belief. Religion and science may both appear similar yet confounding simultaneously.…

    This is just one example of the many similarities between these two stories and stories in both science and religion. One nice point Anthony Flew points out in his book is the ideas of Max Planck. Max believed that “both science and religion are fighting a joint battle, a crusade against skepticism and against dogmatism, against unbelief and superstition.” Basically what he is trying to say is that both science and religious faith are going about the same way in what their main purposes are. They are both trying to get rid of disbelief and arrogance and for people to open their minds. Science must root itself in faith that the universe is a rationally methodical entirety of things.…

    Cognitive science of religion provides a venue for a dialogue between science and religion because its conclusions may present fresh interpretations of previously complex theological ideas. Dr. Barret gives two examples of how cognitive science of religion may impact Christian theology in the future. The first, revelation, describes cognitive science of religion’s interpretation of general revelation, God revealing Himself in nature. Dr. Barret theorizes moral codes and mythologies may be part of God’s general revelation. I think it is a common view among Christians that God created an innate moral code within us.…

His life, although fictional, can teach others to be more accepting of various religions and to be peaceful in the name of one’s own religion. Experts have been quite perplexed at the concept of religion. Even the earliest humans had some form of religion, which poses the question, “Why?” One answer to this question is that religion provides humans with the answers to questions that they cannot easily respond to.…
