Question 1 Some of the notable advantages of SETI are: It helps in detecting astronomical phenomena and not only the artificial signals from extra-terrestrial sources. The universe is likely to benefit from the interstellar exchange for humans rather than for human interlocutors. SETI also signals human maturation as a species, as people guide their search strategies by both cosmocentric and intergenerational ethics. Question 2 One of the major projects of the SETI is the Galaxy Zoo: Hubble which is the latest version of the original zooniverse project. The primary goal of this project is to help astronomers figure out how galaxies form and evolve through classification of their shape. All interested parties who want to participate in this project have to run a program called SETI@ home which uses the computer when it is idle to process data and look for radio telescope signals around the world and analyze the signals for signs of intelligent life (Silvertown, 2009). Question 3 Audubon’s Christmas bird count is the...

Evolution and Intelligent Design

Question 1 Despite the differences in the creation and the evolution theory, they all try to explain the origin of the earth and the life in it. While the evolution theory was developed and is provided by scientists, the creation theory is provided in the sacred books such as the Bible.  Some of the various evidence for evolution include: Ancient organism remains – mainly found by Sir Charles down, these remains show the existence of an early life in the old world. Fossil layers – fossil layers often form the sedimentary rocks. The similarities among the living organisms – this similarity are a clear indication that living organisms came from a few common ancestors and changed to adapt to their new environments(Skinner, 2015). Similarities of embryos – embryos of many different kinds of animals look very similar, and it is often difficult to tell them apart. Question 2 Various disciplines such as biology, astronomy, physics and cosmology clearly show the existence of intelligent...

The tensions between science and culture extend far beyond disputes over evolution.

Topic 1: question 1 Most are the times that culture and science do not agree on several issues and the only way forward is to find a compromise between the two given the fact that they are both important to the human race. In the first case, I feel like the local tribes should be given a chance to bury the remains of their ancestors widely referred to as Kennewick Man primarily because culture is so dear to the Indians and it is a sign of respect to the ancestors. The bones should be reburied by the concerned tribes. On the other hand, I feel that it is not necessarily important to return some of the artifacts and bones to their original countries, mainly because by being preserved in other countries, opens a door and a platform for other cultures and people to understand the culture of that particular region. Question 2 Some of the criteria that should be added to ensure that...
