a. Various views on the world have different explanations for what prime reality is. In religion, particularly in Christianity, the prime reality is God. However, naturalism considers that the term relates to eternal matter. In addition, in this belief, God does not exist at all. Postmodernism defines prime reality in a similar way that naturalists do. My worldviews on natural reality correspond to those of postmodernists.
b. The nature of the world around Christianity is the creation of God. It is the tangible aspect of living, unlike the prime reality. However, my view of the world considers other factors. The nature of the world is everything that surrounds a person, yet, it was not created by God.
c. A human being can be analyzed from multiple points of view. Firstly, biologically we are a part of nature around us. Secondly, we are thinking creatures that can make rational decisions. This is the primary factor that distinguishes us from animals. Finally, human beings cannot exist without the social environment around them. Therefore we are social beings that need to be surrounded by other people to exist.
d. People regard the concept of death considering their beliefs. For example, in Christianity, a person has a soul that continues living after the body has died. Scientific approaches regard the issue from the biological perspective. When a person dies, his or her body seizes to function. Although there is very little that humans know about death and other aspects of life, my worldview corresponds with the scientific point of view.
e. From a rational point of view, people have been collecting knowledge throughout their history. Although much of the information can be interpreted in different ways, there are some facts that cannot be altered. Scientists, for example, base their knowledge on research utilizing methods that allow them to view a phenomenon repeatedly. This will enable them to assume that certain things are factual and present proof of it. Although even in the scientific community, some theories are refuted, the method allows people to test the knowledge.
f. People base their knowledge on what is right and what is wrong on various factors. Firstly, people have created laws to identify the boundaries of what can and can not be done. However, the legal rules can be regarded as a consequence that followed the understanding. Many individuals use ethics to identify whether the choices they make regarding their life and people they know are right. Some people adhere to their religious beliefs to guide them through the process. In my opinion, regardless of the approach a person uses, the basic principles of what is right and what is not are similar. Additionally, they are based on the knowledge that humankind has collected throughout its history.
g. The meaning of human history can be regarded from different viewpoints. In postmodernism, history is considered to be a showcase of the power of one culture over another (Lash, 2016). Alternatively, it can be used as a reference for future generations to consider the good and the bad things that have happened.
