Transcript of Theory Of Knowledge: Is Knowledge truth or What we accept

KNOWLEDGE
Is KNOWLEDGE TRUTH or what we ACCEPT
Knowledge Issue
For years we have acknowledge the connection between science vs pseudoscience.
Cause we all know that at one point in time the world is believe to be flat
Now we know it's
Yet by all of the previous believer. The knowledge claim hurt them as what they believe in for years was questioned. Opening the door for denial even though it might be the truth
Look at Galileo he was vilified
his defense for the theory of heliocentric. Despite the theory of Geocentric, was the theory supported by the church at the time. Even to the extent in which he was put into house arrest.Due to disagreement with the church and other scholar
Yet this is something seen time and time again
Just ask.
Georg Cantor
John Anthony West
And many more brilliant discoverer
Definition of Knowledge
All That a person know
R
O
U
N
D
Now here's the dilemma
-oxford dictionary
BUT
Knowledge more precisely
Belief
Known to be true
JUSTIFIED Validly
and more
Theory of Knowledge by Nicholas Alchin
Knowledge is a door for us to understand the world, move forward, create innovation and transform the world. As the truth gives the best understanding.
Yet through all these real life situation. There is a slow process for a knowledge to remove itself from being a "belief" into a knowledge despite enough justification. If at all it is accepted.
Time in which events happen due to the knowledge itself and the belief that follows it
Such as Allan Savory, who admitted that his previous belief that cattle herds were the cause of desertification turns out to be the solution of the problem.
Before
After
To What Extent Does ignorance affect what knowledge is?
So ignorance itself inhibits the progress of the world and causes gigantic problem that is difficult to be ratified.
However what about?
The inverse
The comfort coming from the knowledge is far greater than the truth from the knowledge itself?
Such as:
HALLEY COMET
At One Point These Theory were pseudoscience
RELIGION
HISTORY
Moments of a story
On the knowledge claim of an existence of god
Derren Brown the magician once said
" If I believe that father Christmas exist
it's not up to you to prove that he
doesn't it's up to me to come up with really good evidence to back such an extraordinary claim"
Most Of Them Believe in GOD
What are the common aspect within religion?
A single perfect entity
Yet someone/something who we can't prove of its existence.
We need a solution for our problem to keep up at ease, to watch us for our morals.

Therefore we believe in a greater power
Since we can't prove its existence and therefore unable to justify his/her/it's presence. Does that mean that we should stop having faith in faith itself?
Despite not being their in a physical presence the idea of a higher being itself has change the world positively
Does that justify that knowledge shouldn't necessarily be the truth but what we accept?
That means justifying the bias that is brought by the knowledge is beneficial in some cases.
However the KEYword is IN SOME CASES
R.L.S: Butler act
In 1925 in Tennessee a law was passed prohibiting the teaching of theory of evolution because it contradicted creationism/bible. Leading to the infamous "monkey trial".
Heliocentric
In Hebrew for the Jews:HaShem
In Islamic religion: Allah
Sikh Religion: Hari
HELIOCENTRIC
Geocentric
Here we see the two pitfall in the identification of knowledge
Ignorance
Transferred Ignorance
Justification
When we reflect to ourselves there is a few knowledge we can't justify
So we turn into authority for an answer
RELIGION
Let's return to the R.L.S
When authority influences what is knowledge can result in catastrophe
wasn't this the foundation of the holocaust
Conclusion
Knowledge should have an authority that dictates whether or not an information is a knowledge.
However when a belief is known as a knowledge. It should be believed with a grained of doubt ?
As knowledge at any given point in time can be proven to be false.
NEWS
Harm of tobacco
RLS: 60 minutes (Audi 500)
In November 1986, the show aired an episode
detailing the unintended acceleration of the
Audi 5000. Which massively hurt the sales of
Audi who struggle to recoup it despite the
report being false
There is some absolute truth. Such as the Sun traveling from the West to the East.


Yet how do we justify all knowledge to be absolute
Propaganda
It paints the picture that the government wants the people to believe. It forces the people to believe even though it might not be true.
