    ‘God knows the ethical decisions we will make.’ Discuss.
    ‘The biblical concept of miracles leads to belief in a God who cares more for some than for others.' Discuss
    ‘If God knows what we are going to do he has no right to reward the good and punish the wicked.’ Discuss.

    Could someone please do a little plan for me for these questions? Would be greatly helpful

    Yes I've got the questions for ethics only
    January 2013:-
    1. Critically assess the claim that conscience is a reliable guide to ethical decision making
    2. "Following the example of virtuous people is the most useful aspect of Virtue Ethics." Discuss
    3. Critically assess the view that businesses have a moral duty to put their consumer first
    4. "Religious approaches to sexual ethics are more helpful than secular approaches." Discuss

    Just wondering if you guys would follow a similar plan for the question:
    "The verification principle offers no real challenge to religious belief." If not, what would you suggest? Thankyou

    Plan-
    Intro

    P1) Strong verficationisim
    Analyse using statement (strengths/weaknesses)
    Support/argue against:
    Perhaps using symbols to see religious language as meaningful

    P2) Weak verficationisim
    Analyse using statement (strengths/weaknesses)
    Support/argue against:
    Support from ayers example of mountains or science and argue against using language games

    P3) offer alternative of falsificationisim as better
    Analyse
    Support/argue against

    Conclusion- sum up all points and conclude that verficationisim does offer some challenge to religious belief however it is wrong to compare scientific statements with religious statements because they are not facts and perhaps should be seen as symbolic rather than literal. Therefore perhaps if wanting to use a better approach against religious language we should consider this problem and resolve it.

    That sounds about right to me, however I prefer to conclude essays on verification/falsification with the idea that they cannot stand up to their own beliefs - the very principle "a statement only had meaning if it can be verified" cannot itself be verified, and I this, I think, is the fatal flaw with the principles and it therefore cannot challenge anything, religious or otherwise.

    Otherwise, that sounds good to me! Different forms of verification, offer alternatives and conclude.

    Very likely topics: Free Will, Meta Ethics, Environmental Ethics

    Likely topics: Business ethics OR Sexual Ethics. It will be one or the other, definitely not both.

    Unlikely topic: Conscience
