There are only a few things Iâ€™ve learned from taking this class, but the few things I learned are worth much more than anything else I have ever learned in all the classes that I have taken at Meramec. With each of the topics that I wrote about, I gained a least a little something from each question. The question on how should one live made me think of what was really important in my life, having a loving family or making a large amount of money. The Star Trek paper intrigued me concerning the many aspects of choosing the â€œrightâ€ decision. The â€œDoes Science Tell the Whole Truthâ€ paper did not interest me at all. I donâ€™t think I gained much from that section just because I donâ€™t care about every little detail of why something happens, so I wouldnâ€™t be interested if science really did explain the truth. â€œWho Am I - What Am Iâ€ was very interesting in that scientists donâ€™t know the exact answer, so it was fun for me to think of different ways I thought the mind and body interact and how they are two extremely different things. The one question that blew me away when I actually thought deeply of my answer was, â€œIs There a God.â€ It really got to me because right now in my life Iâ€™m at a crossroads trying to make a decision not necessarily if I think there is a God or if I believe in Him, but if I truly trust Him. That question provoked my thinking, if I am really as close to God as I want to be.
The question on how should one live got me thinking mostly of education and family. I think Iâ€™d rather be educated because I know I would have a career that I would love if I continue college and get a degree. Also with more education I would be able to gain more money to live a comfortably without worrying about my ability to pay a simple, needed bill (electricity). In my life, I need people that love me to support me so I would definitely need a loving, supportive family that I can lean on during tough times.
