Part Three: AUTHORITYand/orEVIDENCE/ARGUMENT
When you justify claims, how much do you actually rely on External Authority and Direct
Evidence for every domain? Assign a percentage to each one per domain (Just make an
estimate, so NO decimal points--e.g., 25.2321%!). Make sure both total 100%.

Science is always substantiated by
evidences and facts.
Actions have different motivations; it is
largely relative. Too hard to judge.
Art can be ugly to some, beautiful to
others. Depends on the "evidences."
Morality is a command from God.
But can vary from person to person.
Religion should be a personal spiritual
connection between God and you.
I believe there is no opinion on part 3 because
whether you largely depend on authority or
evidence is an opinion on its own. It is this opinion
that empowers us to believe in what we want to
believe in(authority or evidence) even if this belief is
different from others.
This is a good exercise in understanding our
actions, decisions, and opinions in our day to day
activities. It feels like we're thinking about how our
minds think. This worksheet allows us to study
how we perceive the world around us.
