Damn it. So any suggestions on a new topic?

Thank you for pointing that out. I don't know if it makes a difference, but what about the general argument about the legalization of marijuana? FDA regulations would definitely be mentioned, but it could also open more employment opportunities, right?

I need to get the right sources and stuff, but the stupid stoners all over the world makes the sources unreliable. Damn cannabis forums. *shakes fist angrily*

Could you maybe generalise it more? To something like Marijuanas role in society? Or is that too broad?

I dont know how it works in the US, but we have classifications for drugs, maybe you could write about getting it reclassed.

What about doing it on some aspect of student rights? You should be able to find lots of stuff.

- Do you agree with Humes (ex. intelligent design)?

So far I'm thinking that the four arguments are all amongst empiricism (?): "intelligent design"-- the world as a "perfect machine", fideism, the problem of evil, and maybe the ontological idea. I don't even actually know. Haha.

Now that I think about it.... I guess I'm struggling with this.

By the way, thank you for your help!
I don't know why I said four arguments, it's quite markedly three All three arguments do argue the same, very basic message, but only Cleanthes argues empiricism. Both Demea and Philo (Philo considerably better) state that God's nature is beyond human comprehension, and we can therefore never know this nature through the medium of reason. Cleanthes contradicts this view, and states that reason is the only way in which you'll know it.
Cleanthes bases his belief on empirical theism on intelligent design, and Philo is used as the sceptic to raise Humes own objections to the argument from design. When he gets down to Gods moral attributes in the last bit (if I remember rightly... it might be before the end) he cites evil in nature as evidence against God being 'infinitely' anything.

When discussing opinions, I'd go for the intelligent design argument if I were you because it's the most obvious thing to focus on - there's a lot of material there for you to use. Philo's argument for fideism is probably the best argument in the text - but it's used more as a conclusion as an arguing point, so you couldn't express a contradictory argument (... I don't think, unless you want to free style without referencing the text )

Not too sure whether this actually helped at all, but if you have any more questions on this I'll have a bash at answering them

^ EDIT.....

I changed my topic to euthanasia and its pros and cons. It's such a typical argumentative paper, but seeing that my paper is officially due in... 12 hours... I guess I have no other choice. I must say that euthanasia has a stronger debate in comparison to marijuana. I have to tie Thomas Jefferson in with my paper and his belief in freedom. Yeah. I write in this thread often, but I guess it's because I lack the academic support in my life.

I'm sure you're exaggerating and knew it all anyway!

I'd so rather write a paper on euthanasia than marijuana use me thinks, it's a bit more black and white.

P.s. If someone in here's fluent in/pretty good at French I could probably do with some help on my next assignment. Yes, I've had to resort to begging in my blog for help in the past

Good luck DG.

This thread and the discussions make my hurt. I'm so not cut out for academics.



Well done do all those in college/Uni.

Do any doctors or med students have any advice for learning anatomy?

I'm trying to nail vertebrate anatomy at the moment but I get flummoxed with recalling all the elements, I am willing to try flash cards, software etc.

I'd recommend a model if its at all possible. I always find things easier to learn if I can physically see them.

A model is a good idea, I agree. That way you can do a self test and label the parts as you attempt to memorize them. That's what my professor recommended I do when I had Biology and it worked really well.
