The Ends of the World

Reflective Writing: Natural & Scientific Ends

1. One way or another, this world will end someday. In this course, we are contemplating an inevitability. Based on your reading of Kyle Chapter 9 (and perhaps your own background, biases, and assumptions), respond to the following:

a. Setting religion aside for the moment, which scientific end or seems the most plausible? Give a few reasons supporting your choice.

b. How much does your choice above have to do with your own existing interpretive grid (IE, your worldview, your assumptions, etc.)? Consider your upbringing, courses you have taken, “preferences” for The End, amount of perceived knowledge about a given End, or other potential assumptions or biases in your worldview. In other words, how much does your limited knowledge factor into this choice?
