  • Agnosticism: What´s An Individual Religion?

    ideals for themselves. Religion, in many cases three main components within itself. First and the most obvious, the history of an individual religion, it’s culture and concepts which are explored within it. Second, the rules or mechanics of religion. Lastly, faith being the core of religion, due to the requirement of it for someone to believe what the individual’s religion is formed around. To show that faith isn’t only required for religiousness, math, seen as a universal truth which itself cannot be proven wrong is ironically derived from faith. Axioms which are the basis of all math cannot be proven right, however we all accept math as true and useful within the world. Euclid’s The Elements provide the postulates which make up all Euclidian geometry, these cannot be quite proven however it is quite hard to argue with; It is possible to draw a straight line between two points. (Fitzpatrick) This is just the first postulate or axiom proposed by Euclid. The fifth postulate which is more questionable says: if a straight line falls across two other straight lines and the internal angles on the same side whose sum is less than two right angles if extended these lines will eventually meet. (Fitzpatrick) Euclid knew this postulate was more questionable, and only elucidated it four times throughout The Elements, evaluating all of his proofs until getting to a point where he could not progress without it. Those who find something like the fifth postulate more questionable or didn’t…

  • Comparison Of Zermelo's Axiom Of Choice

    Axiom of choice was formulated by Zermelo in 1904 and is known as Zermelo’s axiom of choice. This axiom stated that we can choose a member from each set in a collection of nonempty disjoint sets, C (Schechter, 2009). Additionally, according to Janes (2008), there exists a set X which consisting of one element taken from each set belonging to Y given that any nonempty set Y members are pairwise disjoint sets.
