Is it rational to believe in God or other supernatural powers? Are there good epistemic reasons for holding religious convictions, facts that speak for their truth? The empirical evidence would seem to suggest there are not. Posters of St. Christopher do not reduce the number of accidents on passing roads; miraculous cures do not occur more frequently in Lourdes than elsewhere in the world; and prayer provides no more help to us today than burnt offerings did to people of antiquity. As for theological defense, traditional proofs for the existence of God come up short as well. The belief that the principle of sufficient reason implies God's existence is nothing more than a leap of faith. And Darwinâ??s theories explain the origin of species and the complexities of evolution far better than the assumption of an intelligent creator can. Even attempts at theodicy fail in the end. Whoever lets a person suffer to reach some other goal treats people as a means and thus acts immorally. An honest review of the evidence does not speak for the existence of God; quite the contrary. The worldâ??s suffering offers a conclusive argument against it.Veranstaltungshinweis: DEBATTEGibt es Gott?Argumente für und gegen die Existenz Gottes Prof. Dr. Ansgar BeckermannPhilosoph, Universität Bielefeld Prof. Dr. William Lane CraigPhilosoph, Biola University ( USA ) 29. 10. 2015, 19.30 UhrAlte Kongresshalle Theresienhöhe 15, 80339 München Die Debatte wird live und in voller Länge im Internet übertragen: www.cvmd.eu Zum Buch:Ist es rational, an Gott oder andere übernatürliche Kräfte zu glauben? Gibt es gute epistemische Gründe für religiöse Überzeugungen - Umstände, die eindeutig für die Wahrheit dieser Überzeugungen sprechen? Empirisch gesehen offenbar nicht: Christophorus-Plaketten führen nicht zu weniger Unfällen, Heilungen finden in Lourdes nicht häufiger statt als anderswo auf der Welt; und Beten hilft offenbar genau so wenig wie die Brandopfer in der Antike. Auch die traditionellen Gottesbeweise leisten nicht, was sie leisten sollen - unter anderem, weil wir nicht davon ausgehen können, dass das Prinzip vom zureichenden Grund zutrifft, und weil Darwins Evolutionstheorie nicht nur die Entstehung der Arten, sondern auch die vielen Probleme des Evolutionsprozesses besser erklärt als die Annahme, all dies ginge auf einen intelligenten Schöpfer zurück. Schließlich müssen alle Theodizee-Versuche als gescheitert angesehen werden. Wer einen Menschen leiden lässt, um damit irgendein Ziel zu erreichen, behandelt diesen Menschen nur als Mittel und handelt daher unmoralisch. Nüchtern betrachtet gibt es also keine epistemischen Gründe, die für die Existenz Gottes sprechen; aber die Existenz von Leid und Schmerz spricht nach wie vor eindeutig dagegen.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Westphalia is a region in Germany, centred on the cities of Arnsberg, Bielefeld, Bochum, Detmold, Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen, Hagen, Minden and Münster and included in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Westphalia is roughly the region between the rivers Rhine and Weser, located north and south of the Ruhr River. No exact definition of borders can be given, because the name "Westphalia" was applied to several different entities in history. For this reason specifications of area and population are greatly differing. They range between 16,000 and 22,000 km2 (6,200 and 8,500 sq mi) in land area, and between 4.3 million and 8 million inhabitants. There is, however, a general consensus that Münster as well as Bielefeld and Dortmund are part of Westphalia.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: Obituaries in newspapers and magazines are solemn, quiet affairs. But the new media offer a different kind of way of honoring a deceased loved one. You can publish articles, countless picture, interactive guest-books and other gimmicks. But a very popular means of mourning are slideshow obituaries. A few notes concerning terminology are necessary at this point. The term obituary is traditionally used for text-only formats (sometimes including a single picture) that appear in newspapers. The slideshow obituaries of our corpus are structurally as well as content-wise very different from these. Nonetheless, we use have the term as a starting point for our paper and will use it throughout our text. One can argue that a comparison between slideshow obituaries and traditional ones is impossible because of the high discrepancies in structure and content. But our reason for omitting such a comparison is based on the fact that an analysis of this kind would have to rely primarily on linguistic aspects. The numerous pictures in slideshow obituaries would be dealt with very briefly and which does not do justice to the prominent role they play in this particular kind of text. But the 'more' of a slideshow obituary is not only the pictures. Other visuals play an important role, the layout, the hosting website. You have the freedom to use different fonts and font sizes. You can create everything from scratch or fall back on websites that provide design templates. You can add music or a voice message. The content is usually much less limited than that of a traditional obituary. This myriad of design possibilities leads to our hypothesis: we propose that, in slideshow obituaries, the different modalities - especially word and image - cannot be separated from one another. They fulfill inherently different functions and each contributes vital information to the overall product. Following this introduction, there will be a section on online obituaries. It will introduce the concept and give examples of different website providing such a service. Chapter three contains the main part of this paper; the analysis of our small corpus of slideshow obituaries. We will determine the functions of the word and the functions of the image. A comparison of these analyses will support our hypothesis. A conclusion will round off the paper and give an outlook on possible further research.

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, Bielefeld University, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Why was Shakespeare so successful in his times? How come, his plays drew the masses into the theatres? How did he manage to attract all these different groups of people with different backgrounds at the same time? These are the questions I will have in the back of my mind while writing this paper. I will examine one aspect of his style more closely, which I found in hisRomeo and Juliet.In doing so, I hope to give at least some small explanation of the reason of his overwhelming success. It was probably in 1595 when Shakespeare wrote this famous tragedy. He was doing so, living in a society which was leaving the Middle Ages far behind and rapidly growing in complexity. The English society was splitting up into a huge variety of different groups and organisations. The Reformation produced a wealth of new religious groupings. Especially the Puritans were to become very influential in England. The rise of the middle class was taking place under the reign of queen Elizabeth, which was combining artisans, merchants and the more prosperous peasants and was accumulating new resources and capital. The aristocracy was changing: It was opening up for new members, mostly wholesalers who had earned a fortune with the profitable overseas trade. The decline of the ancient system of feudalism was highly advanced, which for the common peasant meant that he wasn't tied to his small piece of soil any longer. He was much more mobile now. Family structures were changing as well. The kin (that is the enlarged family) as the main organising factor was beginning to lose ground to the smaller nuclear family.
