WE NEVER HAD A PET AT HOME. Once my dad brought a puppy in our house but my mom gave it to my uncle because of the mess it created so I didn’t have that much interest on it. However, this year 2010, my professor in philosophy gave me an assignment to collect 100 true statements about pets and I’ve discovered amazing facts about them that made me want to have a pet of my own.

OTHERS THINK LIFE is so unfair,
They are always asking why and how,
It’s not easy to live and to travel far.
Achieving ones goal take times somehow.

The Death of Jose Rizal: Ambeth Ocampo’s version

Editor’s note: The following is the article written by today’s most famous Filipino historian Ambeth R. Ocampo on Jose Rizal’s death. Simply entitled, “The Death of Jose Rizal,” this historical piece by the current head of the National Historical Institute (of the Philippines) could be deemed refreshing and controversial, as it offers several unpopular and unorthodox accounts of what (presumably) transpired on the day of Rizal’s execution. For one thing, it virtually proclaims that Rizal refused to kiss the crucifix before he was executed, thereby negating the claim of other historians (like Zaide) that the national hero even asked for this Catholic sacramental. Happy reading!
… Although he was walking to his death, eyewitnesses describe Rizal as serene – a bit pale, not because of fear of his fate, but because he had not had any breakfast. All he had been given were three hard-boiled eggs, which he took to a corner of his prison cell, saying, “This is for the rats; let them have a fiesta, too.” Then he left his cell ...


Science & Ethics compared: Are There Proofs in Ethics too?

BECAUSE SCIENCE IS, or is supposedly, empirical or verifiable, it seems to provide our paradigm of objectivity. And in comparing ethics to science, “ethics seems to lack the features that make science so compelling” (James Rachels,The Elements of Moral Philosophy: 1999).

          In fact, many assert that there are no proofs in ethics. While we can prove that the world is round and that two plus two equals five, we cannot, they say, prove that abortion is right or wrong. So the “No-Proof Argument” as outlined by Rachels goes like this:


Are there ‘moral facts’?

THE FAMOUS SCOTTISH PHILOSOPHER David Hume (1711-1776) claimed that if we examine wicked actions—“willful murder, for instance”—we will find nomatter of fact” corresponding to the wickedness. This view, which was adopted by many contemporary evolutionists and atheists like Richard Dawkins, suggests that the universe, apart from our attitudes, contains no such [moral] facts.


Emotivism Analyzed: Moral judgment is backed by reason

EMOTIVISM IS THE THEORY IN ETHICS that states that moral judgments do not state any fact at all but are mere expressions of one’s attitude used to influence people’s attitudes and conduct.
          Nonetheless, ethicist James Rachels in his bookThe Elements of Moral Philosophy (USA:McGraw-Hill College, 3rd ed., 1999) proved very well that a moral judgment or any kind of value judgment must be supported by good reasons ...
