Section 10 group 3 summary 9/8/14 Author: David Cuthbertson
Today we talked in our section about the reasoning for religion, or say the questioning of it, along with the question, "Can someone truly be happy if they don't understand sadness?" we also discussed if a wise man could be ignorant. Religion in many ways can be a moral code, a reasoning point, a study, or even a coping mechanism. Weather you need it to tell you what to do in life, or to give hope to those with assurance of an afterlife, it is their choice. For our second notion, happiness only comes with the understanding of sadness. the opinion of happiness to someone can mean something completely different to the happiness of another. without sadness, we would have no other feeling to compare to happy, thus never allowing us to define happiness and sadness. thirdly, depending on the person, it is true that a wise man can be ignorant. To prove a point if he/she ever uses their accolades as an add on to an argument, they are ignorant. indulging in ones intellectual pride is one of the best examples of wise ignorance I can give.
