Logic Handout

...Phil 203 - Logic - Handout #1 It is important to be able to distinguish between a valid argument and a sound argument. A valid argument is one in which the conclusion follows necessarily from the premises, such that if the premises are true, the conclusion must also be true. A sound argument is one that is valid and the premisses are true (hence the conclusion is also true). Here is an example of a valid deductive argument with true premises and a true conclusion (notice it is in the form of a syllogism): Premiss 1: If the North won the Civil War, then the slaves were freed. Premiss 2: The North won the Civil War. Conclusion: Therefore, the slaves were freed. But consider this argument: Premiss 1: If the South won the Civil War, then the slaves were freed. Premiss 2: The South won the Civil War. Conclusion: Therefore, the slaves were freed. Here, the argument is valid even though both premises are false and the conclusion is true. It is valid, because if the premises were true, then the conclusion would be true also. The conclusion still follows from the premises. Are the following valid? Premiss 1: All seniors are talented (F) Premiss 2: All talented people are ugly (F) Conclusion: All seniors are ugly (F) Premiss 1: All ugly people are seniors (F) Premiss 2: All seniors are insightful (F) Conclusion: All ugly people are insightful (T) Premiss 1: All ugly......

Current Issues Paper and Class Handout

...Current issues paper and class handout University of Phoenix REL/133 David Bolton 3/17/2015 Shintoism is a native religion of Japan and was once its state religion but over the years that has changed due to many other religions that have moved in. Shinto as a religion is different and more unique than other religions and even though it has fallen from the time of when it was popular it is still being practice. Unlike many religions women have always been a part of Shinto and although it has its ups and down women still practice it with no discrimination. Now this may not answer the question at hand but please allow me to explain why Shinto does not have a lot or any at all common characteristic to other religions. Because Shinto is more than so different than other religions. Because at the heart of Shinto it is more focused on ritual rather than belief. Like other religions there are several things that Shinto does not have like they have no founder, no written documents before the 8th century CE, no list of formalized ethics, no system of dogmatic beliefs or creeds, no inclusive, canonical scripture, and no organized system of theology. The goal of Shinto is to obtain happiness and fulfillment in this life. Shinto considers the best way to do this is by having respect for family, respect for nature, keeping clean in mind and body, and celebrating the harmony between nature and humanity through the Kami. Shinto unlike other religions does not put their......

...Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Plant propagation can also refer to the artificial or natural dispersal of plants. Sexual Reproduction – pollination (plants or trees that have flowers) Asexual Reproduction *Natural *Artificial Natural Methods of Asexual Reproduction Natural methods of asexual reproduction include strategies that plants have developed to self-propagate. Many plants, such as ginger, onion, gladioli, and dahlia, continue to grow from buds that are present on the surface of the stem. In some plants, such as the sweet potato, adventitious roots or runners (stolons) can give rise to new plants . In Bryophyllum and kalanchoe, the leaves have small buds on their margins. When these are detached from the plant, they grow into independent plants; they may also start growing into independent plants if the leaf touches the soil. Some plants can be propagated through cuttings alone. Runners: asexual reproduction A stolon, or runner, is a stem that runs along the ground. At the nodes, it forms adventitious roots and buds that grow into a new plant. Artificial Methods of Asexual Reproduction Artificial methods of asexual reproduction are frequently employed to give rise to new, and sometimes novel, plants. They include grafting, cutting, layering, and micropropagation. Grafting Grafting has long been used to produce novel varieties of roses, citrus species,......
