Math and Religious Knowledge Systems Perception

Mathematics doesn’t necessarily exist. This is because math is a concept which did not exist before humans. Therefore, math does not need to be perceived. But when it is percieved it is used as a tool to refer to concepts of individual knowledge

In math our perceptual systems are highly reliable. Mathematics has a concrete language which is proven and similar across all languages. Therefore, everybody should perceives math in the same way regardless of who they are or their situations. 

However, in other areas of knowledge perception can be much less reliable. As I learned today our brains see, hear and feel what we want them to. Subsequently in areas such as religion and beliefs in many cases are brains can’t be reliable, because your brain producers senses rather than interrupt.


Outline the Role of 1 WOK in 1 AOK

The WOK of emotion can allow us to explore the AOK of ethics. By imagining how you would feel by putting yourself in another place can help you to understand how someone else would feel in a certain situation. This would allow you to know whether or not what is happening to them is ethical.


On the other hand, emotion can have a negative affect on how you perceive ethics. If you have a different emotional action towards a certain topic as another person then you could perceive ethics in a completely different way as them. Subsequently, across the world, there could be millions of perceptions of what ethics is.



Class 2

Everyone is  to his own beliefs, but not his own facts. Do you agree?

My questions:
What distinguishes beliefs and facts?
Can a belief also be a fact?
Can various communities have their own facts and beliefs?

I agree with this statement only partially because I believe that there are many different types of facts. For example their are mathematical and scientific facts. I believe these are concrete and proven facts that people are not entitled to create their own. Therefore, you would not be entitled to say “1+1=3”. However their are also other types of facts: personal emotions, attitudes and perspectives. I  believe it would be factual for me to say “I am sad” as it is an emotional fact which we are all entitled to. I also believe that all people are entitled to their own beliefs because beliefs do not necessarily have to be true.
