Religion 25 Final Exam

Would God enjoy a game of Bingo? Yahtzee? Battleship? Texas Hold’em? Would God enjoy the lottery?

Just a random (rhetorical) thought.

Anyway, determine which questions have been randomly assigned to you. Do only the questions you’ve been assigned. Your grade will not exceed 100%. Mwaahahaa.

    We just ate take-out from Kin’s, and my fortune cookie only had 5 numbers and a bonus 6th in this order: 6 18 25 36 41, 14. and the proverb “You have the ability to analyze and solve any problem.”

    I have mere faith that every cookie will have six unique numbers from 1-49.

    I have enough remaining cookies for everyone in class and dare not open any others.

    What if the numbers are not for a 6/49 type draw? Could it be something else? Can we cope?

    Oh, if anyone wants to write all 49 questions if their “fortune” gives them a bad vibe, they probably should.

    Hanging your fate in your faith in a chosen few is yours to decide.

    Take out
    54. (___/2) With whom would Plato be more comfortable – Indo-Europeans or Semites?
    I think we should take out the last whatever questions, because we basically know all the first ones already.

  3. farkashingston

    I think that question #55 should be removed because we already have a comparing and contrasting question between Plato and Aristotle so we don’t really need another one between Plato and St. Augustine

  4. farkashingston

    We should keep question #45 because it is worth alot of marks and it is easy to get all 6 marks.

    What is the difference between the Indo-European and Semite origins?

    Indo-Europeans: believed in many gods and life was a continuous circle
    (Hinduism, Buddhism)
    Semites: believed in one God and life is a line with a beginning and end
    (Christianity, Judaism, Islam)

  5. chandersen

    We should keep all of the questions that were on our first quiz. The questions that should definetly be taken off are 41, 45, 47, 52, 55, and 57.

  6. machehade

    10. 18. 38. 49. I think these are the questions we should eliminate. I don’t really think we should take out all the new ones and all the easy ones as suggested above.

  7. msommer

    We should make a forum page and each post a couple of questions and answers. The first 49 on the forum should be the ones used on the test. That way we can all go to the forum to study for the test, rather then spending time reading the book and finding new answers.

  8. Mr. D. Sader Post author

    The questions I keep should be questions of lasting value. The point value means nothing, I just want you to have a better sense of which questions are absolutely trivial.

    Examples dropped: “How many hours was the middle ages?” Trivial, although relevant to the course of history and general relativity theory, I guess. Dropped. “When is Sophie’s birthday?” Absolutely trivial, definitely dropped.

    Examples added: Zelliott’s question about the origin of evil. Not so trivial. This question should be a source of quibbling for ever. Added.

    Logic about “easy marks” should be ignored.

    Logic about “first come first served” should not influence a decision.

    Panic? Deal with it. You already know every question on the final. Hardly grounds to start a revolt.

    Focus only on recognizing questions of value, recommend I delete questions of an absolutely trivial nature.
