Hey all,
So I'm preparing to sit my GCSE RS Paper 2 tomorrow (I'm with AQA if that helps), and I was wondering if i was able to use quotations from philosophers. I already know a few quotes from the bible for the exam but in my mocks i used quotations from a few philosophers and got marked for them. Was wondering if i could replicate this in the exam.
Thanks : )

"It is no nation we inhabit, but a language. Make no mistake; our native tongue is our true fatherland." - Emil Cioran (used it in a war 12 marker in the mock and got all 12)
"Facts do not exist, there are only interpretations" - Friedrich Nietzsche
"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than anything on which it is poured" - Mark Twain

Those are the main ones I can think of off the top of my head, but I'll go look over my notes and see what else I have : )

Could you give a quick rundown on each of those quotations and analysis behind them? It'd be pretty interesting to include philosophical arguments in the coming test

Sorry this is so late,
1- You can use it as a non religious argument for war, in defence of ones culture and ethicity
2- Justification for anything tbh, most likely war, no one will know the truth, what is seen as bad by some may be seen as good by others
3- The crime topic, talk about how it is a cause for crime

Again sorry for the late reply, best of luck today : )
