Consider:

Instructions
SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY and
ETHICS — The Elite (VIPs) vs. The
Masses
Consider:
Who should a society support and champion
The Elite: the champions, the famous, the rich, the
powerful, the people who get things done, who
runs and change society (for better or worse).. In
other words: the fittest (the 1%);
OR
The Masses: the common folks, the multitude, the
profusion, the crowds, including the 51% of
people in America on some sort of social relief.
This questions colors and valuates much of
the decisions we make as a society; it is past time
to identify where we as individuals stand.
This question is the root of:
Republicans vs. Democrats
Bourgeoisie vs. Proletariat
Capitalist vs Socialist
Haves vs. Have-
Nots
“To be is to do”,
-Socrates.
“To do is to be”
‘-Jean-Paul Sartre.
“Do be do be do”.
‘_Frank Sinatra.
(Had to put that in here)
Anyhow, here is the topic you will argue:
Inquiry: Should survival of the fittest be the law
of the land?
Or should a
society support the weak?
REQUIREMENTs:
1,000-2,500 words
MLA-Format
Bulleted-abstract
Cites and works cited
Researched and supported arguments

Write 2-3 paragraphs.

1. Describe how the objects and events in the video are interconnected. How would Paley and other fans of the teleological argument explain all of this? What would they say must have created all of these creatures and caused them to behave this way? Be sure to explain the main parts of the teleological argument. Then, give another example of something in nature that appears to operate according to a design. How does it appear to function according to a plan? Write 2-3 paragraphs. Begin typing your answer below. 

2. Watch the following video:

Describe how Komodo dragons hunt. What would fans of the problem of evil say about this kind of thing happening in nature? Do they think a perfect God would create a world with this sort of event? Be sure to address the main parts of the problem of evil, including its conclusion. Then, share your own example of natural evil. Explain how this part of nature is painful for creatures experiencing it. Then, present an objection to the problem of evil from this course and discuss how this might explain why a perfect God would design a world this way. Do you think this explanation is successful? (Note: You don’t have to agree with the objection or the explanation. This assignment involves thinking about events from the perspective of people who accept or reject the problem of evil.)
