  1. Hey all, I was hoping someone could enlighten me regarding the correct way of structuring a ToK presentation. So my real life situation is a theft where the victim blames the misfortune on black magic (superstition) My KQ is: How reliable are faith(superstition) and emotion as sources of knowledge/ways of knowing. I was wondering if this is too generic? Also I am in a group of three so I guessed it would be good to have a broad perspective. Basically it goes like this: Why is faith 'bad' (believing without evidence, dogmatism) Why is emotion 'bad' (obscures judgement, confirmation bias) Why is reason better (scientific evidence, logical) Counter arguments: Why is faith 'good' Why is emotion 'good' Why is faith 'bad' Is this a correct approach ? Also I am thinking of including some videos and maybe interactive elements to keep the audience awake. Regards, Haseeb
  2. My RLS is a police violence in Louisiana that caused a death of an innocent man named Alton Sterling and KQ is To what extent can we trust the authority figures. I'm really confused with what my claims and counterclaims could be, and what evidence i could use to support my claims concerning FAITH AND HISTORY ?
  3. My TOK presentation is tomorrow. My partner and I want to focus on the different perceptions of body art, such as tattoos, body piercings and hair being dyed. This is a controversial issue among different religions and cultures. Today, some people are rejected from getting a job once they show up in a job interview with arm tattoos. Others are simply asked to conceal them during work hours, but is this a suppression of self-expression? Our Knowledge Question would be: How does perception help shape our values of art? HOWEVER, according to our TOK teacher, this idea does not go under the AOK Art, since “art is permanent, tattoos are not….” So if this is not considered to go under Art, which AOK would this go under? We also want to focus on Ethics, and Perception and Reasom as a WOK. Heres a brief outline of what Im trying to explain: Cultural Perspectives on Tattoos Japan: tattoos associated with yakuza (japanese mafia), people with tattoos not allowed in public bath houses or asked to conceal them Hawaii: Originated in polynesia, hula dancers have alot of tattoos, socially accepted Religious Perspectives on Tattoos Christianity: First of all, making marks on the skin is mentioned in several verses. Lev. 19:28, "‘You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead, nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord." Hinduism: The marking of the forehead is encouraged as it enhances spiritual well-being and is one of the chakras on the body. Many Hindu women tattoo their faces with dots especially around the chin and eyes to ward off evil and enhance their beauty. The local regional tribes use tattoos to distinguish between certain clans and ethnic groups. Generation Perspectives on Tattoos Older generation: bad, criminal associated, underground society Younger generation: accepted, fashionable, self expression, human right
  4. I'm doing a TOK presentation, about the Theory of Evolution, and I, obviously, need to relate it to TOK. So I was wondering why people did/did not believe in the Theory of Evolution. There is two types of arguments, the classic arguments, and the others ( Why people think differently) which I have assiociated with those ways of knowing: Reason, Intuition and faith So, could you answer the question which is in the Topic Title, and give reasons why?
  5. Hello! I'm doing my TOK presentation in a month with the KI: ''How can reason be used to justify religious beliefs''? I was wondering if the general debate, between science and religion (atheists coming to believers and asking them to prove this or that) an RLS? Thanks in advance, ibsurviving.
