1. Do you think we should respect the beliefs of a racist or sexist person? To a certain extent, i believe that everyone has the right to believe whatever they want. But on that note, if your beliefs are hateful to a part of the community, they should be kept to yourself. People are raised differently, in different time periods, so the way they view things varies from one person to another. Although some beliefs may be unethical, the individual has the right to believe these things. Whether the community should respect these beliefs is based on the evidence and support the individual has to support his belief.
2. Find some examples of beliefs (modern or throughout History) that you think are both misguided and dangerous.
-If you stop working out your muscle will turn to fat
-Twinkies last ridiculously long
-Astrology is scientific
– Bees wont sting you if you dont bother them
3. The video i reflected on is: “IS THERE A REAL YOU? WHAT MAKES YOU YOU?“ Its a weird concept to think about, but what if we were all the same? And there was a list of few things that different us. He states that knowledge shapes physically and mentally, and the resulted outlook makes you who you are. I really liked this video, and i feel as if this guy has some good theories. This really made me think of my own individual difference compared to everyone.
