o explain why it’s difficult for people to come to agreement on certain  things complexity of evidence lot of complexity of what counts as a reason for  promoting a religious, political, philosophical, etc. belief variety of life experience people live different lives and have different perceptions  and conclusions on certain things makes it difficult for people to come to agreement  because they come from different cultures necessity of weighing evidence differently people are going to weigh evidence differently based on  their life experiences and the significance of certain  things because of these judgments no one should appeal to these views in political society we are supposed to be reasonable, meaning that we are to  try and come to a general consensus o I understand that because they have different theories they are not  unreasonable if I am being reasonable and seek fair terms of cooperation I should not  appeal to the different reasons in one’s political life o because other people may reject them o philosophical, political and cultural values o I cant expect people to agree with me you will most likely have these burdens of judgment in science even though  there’s agreement and general consensus in research o it is reasonable, therefore, to agree that you can come to general  agreements in other aspects of life scientists will likely weigh the evidence differently historical examples where appealing to theories have advanced the cause of  justice o abolition, civil rights appealed to religion quite often what is wrong with appealing to what’s true o why do we only appeal to things that we believe are reasonable and  that reasonable people accept

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
