    Design Argument. Right 8 Marks = 4 related reasons.
    1. William Paley likened the world to a watch, because it contains so many parts fitting together, every part has a purpose, this means something as complicated as the world requires a designer this may lead people to a belief in God if they think they may be the designer who created the world and gave each individual component a purpose.
    2. The World is to complex to just have 'occurred' it requires someone to make sure every single part fits together, this would required the presence of a designer, this may make people believe in God if they believe he's the designer.
    3. The only way something such as the world could have been created is by something greater, as some people believe this is a God, this would make other people searching for a purpose to believe it would be God.
    4. Everything has to have a cause and Thomas Aquinas believed if you revert back to the 'first cause' that this was God, this would make people believe in God while searching for a purpose because God caused them to be there for a given purpose


    (Note: 4 isn't a design argument point, but the cosmological, needed a fourth potential idea)

    Thanks you soo much. That was really helpful :hugs:

    We are a Christian country because one greedy ******* wanted to tell his wife to do one :sigh: - it shouldn't mean that it is forced down our throats. How many 'Christians' actually believe in God? That's a good question (as a hell of a lot of our country are misrepresented in the census - I'm not Christian but according to my dad I am :facepalm:)

    The education does need redoing - it needs to be done in a way so every religion gets an equal amount of focus, atheism and lack of religion needs addressed equally and needs to be done in a way which doesn't make it look like the authors of the textbooks aren't sneering at atheists (which at least one of mine is). They should also just completely change the exam question to being -"do you agree?*



    *YOUR HONEST OPINION MAY NOT BE VALID IN THIS SITUATION IF YOU'RE ATHEIST"
    My "Education needs Re-doing" isn't just for Education, we're mad, with the extensive exams etc. few other countries do this.
    There are Four types of Christian:
    1. "Christian By Record" E.g. Me: according to school/CENSUS Records, they are of this religion, not necessarily true.
    2. "I'm Christian" Christians - Believe God and Jesus therefore Christian, no knowledge about the 35,000 branches within Christianity, quite a lot of people
    3. "Selective Christians" People who follow the 'good bits' of the Bible (that I agree with - Commandments etc.) and possibly some of the bad stuff (homosexuality is wrong). Go to church etc.
    4. Literalists: Believe every word. Rare in Britain, more in 'Bible-Belt America'. Are either Gullible or stupid

    And I agree, I have my religion, they have theirs, leave it at that

    That sucks!! We don't even do option blocks here for GCSE or A-Level to begin with, what happens is they see all applications and see how many students want to do what and what their combinations are; they then start trying to construct their timetables from there. I am for example now choosing to do
    French
    Spanish
    History
    Maths
    GCSE Latin (gonna ask to drop Computing at interview)

    and just because 3 people want to do French and Spanish the entire lower sixth is having it's lessons structured around those two lessons being compatible with each other, which I really love my MFL department for. Miss Lane and Miss Johnson I love you <3
    As far as I've been told they literally just don't have the money to run a German class for like 2/3 people.

    French only got 2 applications I hear :mmm:

    1 is about how every single part fits together perfectly which is very difficult to achieve naturally 2 is more about how it's just so many components and the sheer complexity

    Ooh... I get it! What are challenges to the design argument?
    - watch is mechanical and Earth is organic so they can't be likened and compared?
    - result of evolution, not a planning intelligence?
    - wrong to talk about design because there is no fixed design - Universe is expanding. (This one is from textbook and sounds sooo poopy)

    Yeah we get way too many exams and courseworks etc. - when you count up the hours it's unreal - 45hrs in IT, Around 40 hours total invested in language coursework prep and time spend doing them, 12 hours of history, like 30 hours of geography and then all of the english ones and then there is the unreal amount of exams we get. We get way too much.

    Yeah I wish that it would just be more black and white - that or make it so every person has to sign off on their religion individually in the household rather than let your parents just say what you are - when it's not the case.

    Wow that's surprising! - why so few applications?

    Our lessons will be really full but I already know who is teaching me for French and Spanish :woo: <3. I'm so happy it's not different teachers as I like my current ones as they are insanely good.

    the guilt eats me C!!! Everyone at school always calls me an idiot for not taking drama and some say they're really surprised I don't do it. I could've been getting A's in Drama. *sobs*

    Haha draw Brad pitt! I warn you though... Don't add his beard!
