Transcript of TOK

19.6 people out of 46
Denmark has the 4th highest rate
Changes in human behaviour
A common thing these days
"Many of my friends' parents are divorced"

"Social groups effect human behavior"
Counter evidence
To what extent is the methodology in human sciences a reliable tool in determining human behaviour?
Catholic marriages is less than a quarter of those in 1968.(Latin Mass society's figures)
Goode and Gibson
"Marriage is becoming less of a spiritual union and more of a practical commitment."
"Research shows that 65 per cent of marriages no longer involve a religious ceremony."
"Marriage and religion influence various dimensions of life, including physical health and longevity, mental health and happiness, economic well-being, and the raising of children. "
"Religion effects marriage"
Angelo Kersalu, Chanique Adamsson, Louise Astrup Andersen and Pauline Fogh
Qualitative and quantitative.
Understanding human behaviors in certain groups.
"I adapt to my social surroundings"
Statistics and different surveys to estimate and calculate the decline rates of marriages within religions.

Indian religion and the catholic church don't accept divorces. Unless your partner is deceased.
"Let not the wife depart from her husband...let not the husband put away his wife" (1 Corinthians 7:10-11),
"For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth. . . . So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress" (Romans 7:2-3)."
Many protestant church and Islam allow divorce.
The medieval Islamic world the divorce rate higher in the middle east, which generally has low rates of divorce.
Our own quantitative research about their parents' relationship between divorce and religion. The majority is Christian where 5 out of 18 couples had broken up. Compared to Atheism where 5 out of 12 couples are divorced.

Religion helps create couple identity.
"Religion has a very positive effect on family. It has a very positive effect on strengthening marriage and reducing the possibility of divorce." (Brian Hollar of Marymount University)
A study of adults in some european countries found religious affiliation, religious attendance and marriage were all associated with greater happiness and satisfaction in life.
An interfaith relationship is not a dance on roses. In many traditional Jewish homes, if you marry a Christian your family might well disown you.
Katy Ramdya, a Hindu, who are married to a Muslim, says " I think the only way for interfaith couples to make it work is if both or one person in the couple are somewhat indifferent to their faith. "
According to the pew forum on religion and public life, 37% of married adults in the US have spouses from a different religion.
So for every two Jewish women on the look for the perfect Jewish man there is one Jewish woman eyeing a protestant or a Buddhist.
The human science methodology can't be completely reliable.
A survey has been done that as mentioned shows that fewer Catholic people are getting married, but at the same time other studies show that religion has a great effect on a good and lasting marriage.
The surveys aren't very accurate because the researchers only asks a certain amount of people and don't get their full story.
Behaviour changes depending on environment and context.
A group have some amount of individuals. Each individuals will have a role depending on the origin of the group.
One can be in many different groups, and have many different roles.
Human behaviour changes depending on their role and position in the group.
Counter evidence
Our behaviour depends on our beliefs, feelings and thoughts.
As individual people are different.
Our actions is connected to our psychology.
Human studies concluded that group activity both does and doesn't affect human behaviour.
So how can their research and methodology be reliable?
How can they conclude uncertain research?
There is no way of estimating anything, and therefore the statement made earlier cannot be proven, but can be disproven, making it either false or plausible.
Quantitative research gives a generalization of an entire nation, group, culture or religion.
Qualitative research can’t be used for mass data collection, while important information might be left out, and there would be too much irrelevant information.
In the end common terms would be found, though it would just end up being quantitative just within quite a lot of time wasted.
Human scientist can not predict human behavior but only to a certain point, due to people being different. Many affecting factors such as group/peer pressure.
Answer cant be found
Uncertain research
Both ways data
