Transcript of ToK: Do Aliens Exist

Do Aliens Exist?
Knowledge Claim 2:
Knowledge Issue 2
Knowledge Issue 1:
DO ALIENS EXIST?
Knowledge Claim 1:
Knowledge Claim 2:
Knowledge Claims:
1. Aliens do exist
2. Aliens do not exist
Real World Application: This question is relevant to the situation today because knowing whether there is other intelligent life in our universe will affect our understanding of all the things that we see and do everyday.
It's a question that everyone wonders about.

KNOWLEDGE ISSUES:
1. How does society determine who to trust?
2. How does society determine what is real?
People should trust observers, some scientist, and historians who believe in aliens:

TT: Coherence because people use logic to determine that they should believe observers who have had first person experience and scientists or historians who are well-educated in their fields.

WOK: Reason, Emotion

PIE: Fails public because not everyone has access to the scientists, historians, and people who claim to have observed aliens or the information that these people have.
Fails independent because many religious beliefs may influence who one considers trustworthy.
Fails eternal because the people who are considered honest and the information about this topic may change and has not always been the same.
People should believe scientists and other people who do not believe in aliens.

TT: Pragmatic for some knowers they feel that these people are honest or they feel that aliens don't exist. And coherence for other knowers because they have observed or used logic to find that aliens don't exist which adheres to what these scientists and certain people claim.

WOK: Emotion, Reason

PIE: Fails public because not everyone is capable of attaining information on this subject matter, and because people do not have access to scientists or people who don't believe in aliens therefore they cannot chose to trust them or not.
Fails independent due to religious beliefs affecting whether or not to trust these people or whether or not aliens exist
Fails eternal because the situation of this topic may not have been the same and may change, also, the opinions of the knowers may change or may not have always been this way.

Knowledge Claims:
1. People should trust observers, certain scientists, and historians who think aliens exist.
2. People should trust scientists and other people who claim that aliens don't exist.
Compare and Contrast: Knowledge Issue 1:Knowledge Claim 1: Observers, some scienCompare and Contrast: Knowledge Issue 1:tist, some historians, people who hear from others, and people who feel that other intelligent life exists
Knowledge Claim 2: Other scientists, many other people in the public, people who have not seen any evidence, people who doubt that other intelligent life could exist
Knowledge Claim 1:
Aliens do Exist: Observers, some scientist, some historians, people who hear from others, and people who feel that other intelligent life exists
TT: Different for the different Community of Knowers:
Observers: Correspondence
Scientists, people who hear from others: Coherence
People who feel that aliens exist: Pragmatic
WOK: Different for the different Community of Knowers:
Observers: Sense Perception
Scientists, people who hear from others: Reason and language
People who feel that aliens exist: Emotion
PIE: Not an universal belief:
Not everyone has access, not everyone has seen aliens
Some religions may believe in extraterrestrials
May not always be the same, may not have been the same earlier
Aliens do not exist: Other scientists, many other people in the public, people who have not seen any evidence, people who doubt that other intelligent life could exist.
TT: Coherence, people have not seen so they don't believe
WOK: Reason, Sense Perception (lack thereof), Emotion
PIE: Not a universal belief
Not public because not everyone has access to information and not everyone is a witness
Not independent, some religions may believe or not believe in the existence of aliens
Not eternal, may not be the same in the future and may not have been the same in the past
Compare and Contrast: Knowledge Issue 1:
Compare: Both knowledge claims share the same ways of knowing being pragmatic and coherence,
Also share almost the same community of knowers and
Both believe that there is concrete evidence whether or not aliens exist

Contrast: Both community of knowers have different interpretations on the subject matter and how they're reasoning is deduced
Knowledge claim 2's community of knowers uses science to deduce if aliens exist or not whereas claim one's use sense perception and base they're deduction of past beliefs

Community of Knowers:
Compare and Contrast: Knowledge Issue 2:
Compare:
Certain knowers base their beliefs on logic (coherence) for both knowledge claims.
Certain people's way of knowing for both claims are reason and emotion
Both knowledge claims are not universal beliefs

Contrast:
The people who believe the claims to be true because of reason base their logic on different information.
Some people believe claim 2 to be true because of sense perception.
Not everyone has seen or has the same information to base their beliefs on
