Are humans born with Knowledge?

As the definition says, Knowledge can be defined as facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education.

Within reading the definition we can understand that knowledge is information that we gain over time. Through the years, many Philosophers have tough about this and many of them agree in the same thing, according to them when humans are born, they are born as a ” Black slate” and after it they gain knowledge and ideas through new experiences .

Back in the past they didn’t have the technology to prove this fact, but with the new technologies many neurologist are currently gaining neuroscientific evidence that could validate the belief that we are born with innate knowledge of our world.

In my opinion, even though neurologist are currently gaining neuroscientific evidence, i still think that we are born without knowledge and we learn it through out information and experiences.

TO WHAT EXTENT IS ETHICAL TO ABORT?

The abortion debate asks if it can be morally right to terminate a pregnancy before normal childbirth.

Some people think that abortion is always wrong. Some think that abortion is right when the mother’s life is at risk. Others think that there is a range of circumstances in which abortion is morally acceptable.

Because of this controversial topic, many ethical questions appear

Should abortion be outlawed and treated like the murder of a human person, or remain a legal choice available to all women?

It is wrong to kill innocent human being? Fetuses are innocent human beings?And many other ones.

And many other ones.

would not be ethical to force the birth of children who are unwanted and cannot be cared for. Women who choose to abort when they cannot be good mothers are making the most ethical choice open to them.

There are a range of moral and ethical issues which may arise about unplanned pregnancy
and abortion. it needs to be consider the  woman’s right to make her own
decision about her pregnancy, based on her unique circumstances, in relation to her own
personal values.
I think ethics can be related to abortion, because it is a choice whether to abort or not.
It is related with decision making.

Definition of Abortion =  deliberate removal (or deliberate action to cause the expulsion) of a fetus from the womb of a human female, at the request of or through the agency of the mother, so as in fact to result in the death of the fetus.

To What Extent Should Offensive Language Be Censored?

The leading purpose of language is to be able to have an efficient communication, but through words we also can express our personalities, our emotions and opinions that make us the people we are. the human being is a social animal and speech is very important for growth and well-being, and is fundamental human right. However, does freedom of speech extend to offensive language? Whether offensive language should be censored or not is a popular debate worldwide.

In the actual society most of the people of a certain age are more likely to swear. this age tends to be from 17 to 34. This is usually because most of the teens and adults are constantly in stress, so basically the way they stress out is normally via swears. Also some studies have show that 58% of the people who swear tend to be more honest.

Swearing can have good social implication. A person’s way of talking reveals much about him or her, and is crucial in lending us an impression of that person.

Censoring offensive language seems unnecessary, especially as we see a marked rise in interest even for R-rated movies. This is not surprising, since most people are rarely ever ‘offended’ by ‘offensive’ language.

My personal belief is that ‘offensive’ language should not be censored.
