    been and are currently being developed. One group of theories contends that the value of this energy must be constant, meaning the acceleration is ubiquitous and isotropic across the universe. Contrarily, scalar field theories deem that the values are anisotropic, or the acceleration is variant throughout the universe; this suggests the idea that there may be some sort of fifth field or force producing the effect (Dynamics…

    The cosmological argument aims to study the nature and order of the universe. “‘The world cannot come from nothing’. The idea here is that the existence of the universe demands a cause, reason, or explanation.” (Davis, 1993) It is also known as the first cause argument. The argument states that we can infer the existence of God from the universe. It is an a posteriori argument which starts at experience. Cosmological arguments are made from the viewpoint of observation. The cosmological…

    The existence of God has been debated throughout history. There are many arguments for the existence of God but there are two commonly-accepted arguments among theists: the cosmological argument and the teleological argument also known as the argument from design. In his article entitled “On Being an Atheist”, H.J. McCloskey attempts to refute each of these arguments. His stated purpose in the article is to provide reasons for atheism and to show that it is more comforting to be an atheist than…

    The argument for God’s existence has remained a constant topic of conversation, and at the head of much controversy. An argument attempting to prove the existence of God can be found through the Cosmological Argument, known also by its informal name as the “first cause argument”. The argument raises the issue of a first cause and where all things in the universe originated. This issue serves importance by highlighting conflicts humanity faces when questioning the origin of all things, and…

    God’s existence has been a key topic of debate over the past couple of centuries. People argue either way very strongly, and many are not open to hearing the other side. When this topic is argued, there are two main arguments, the cosmological and teleological argument. In this article, “On Being an Atheist”, H.J. McCloskey argues against each of these views. He believes that without sure “proof” of God, we need to totally pitch the idea that God exists. If this were the case, many…

    although a force is needed to start movement, it can continue without outside interference, contradicting Aristotle and Aquinas' ideas that motion needed constant force. The cause argument, on the other hand, contradicts itself without the help of modern science. In saying that every single event has a cause outside itself, it rules out the possibility of there being an 'uncaused cause', as only one of these things can exist at one time, which shows the unsound nature of its conclusion. The…

    The purpose of this lab is to solve for the equilibrium constant of a reaction between iron (iii) ions and thiocyanate ions. The lab is divided into two parts: one section recording absorbance of reference solutions and the other part for the absorbance of test solutions. The reference solutions were created through the mixing of excess iron (iii) nitrate (Fe(NO3)3) with a known concentration of potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) in order to push the reaction to completion; the initial concentration…
