    Both have value.

    If we value either above God and His ways, our future is very dark.

    God is real. 

    Well, let us first see that the Bible is a book of truth.

    Number 1: Are the Jews are real people? If you answer, "Yes", then move to question #2.

    Number 2: Why the Jews are called "Jews"?

    If you don't know, look to the Bible where the Jews are called Jews because they descended from the tribe of Judah.

    Genesis 29:35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah…KJV

    Look and see if there is any other answer. There isn't any acceptable answer for the truth is accepted by the world.

    Number 3: Now that the Jews are real people and they are in the Bible, ask yourself why Jews don't take Jesus as Lord and Savior and why they don't believe Jesus is the Messiah?

    If you don't know, the answer is that the Jews holy text, the Tanakh/Old Testament was written before the coming of Jesus.

    This helps provide proof that the whole Bible (Old Testament/New Testament) were not written at the same time.

    Now if we know that the Old Testament and the New Testament were not written at the same time, then the prophecies and foreshadowings of the Old Testament could not have been made up. Rather, they were made in advance and fulfilled later on.

    The fulfilled prophecies and foreshadowings are THE ULTIMATE PROOF of GOD.

    What are some prophecies and foreshadowings given by God in the Tanakh/Old Testament that have come to be fulfilled, you may ask.

    Now let's look at the Tanakh/Old Testament foreshadowings/prophecies concerning Jesus.

    1) Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem---Micah 5:2

    2) the King/Messiah was to bring salvation was to ride into Jerusalem on an ***, upon a colt, the foal of an ***-----Zechariah 9:9

    3) the price of Jesus' betrayal was told to be 30 pieces of silver, told who would end up with the money (the potter), and where the silver would be cast (the house of the Lord-----Zechariah 11:13

    4) that the hands and feet would be pierced-----Psalm 22:16

    5) that He would be born of a virgin---Isaiah 7:14

    6) that He would be pierced for our transgressions---Isaiah 53:5

    7) that He would die with wicked, be assigned a rich man's grave, though He had done no violence or said anything deceitful---Isaiah 53:9

    One foreshadowing fulfilled by Jesus is the Passover Lamb.

    The Passover lamb died on the 14th of Nisan. Its' blood was placed on the door frames of the Israelites homes to protect the Israelites from the angel of death and the plague of the first born males. Those that had faith that the blood of the lamb would save them (the Israelites) were protected from physical death. The Egyptians, who did not have faith in the blood, physically died. No bones were to be broken on the Passover lamb.

    Jesus, the true Passover Lamb, died on the 14th of Nisan. Those who have faith in the blood of Jesus to save them will be not face spiritual death.  Those who do not believe will suffer spiritual death/eternal torment in the lake of fire. No bones were broken on Jesus.One foreshadowing you may not have known of is the names of the first ten descendants/genealogy of Jesus found in Genesis chapter 5.

    Look at the genealogy from Adam to Noah.In our Bible, we read the Hebrew names.

    What are the translated meaning of these names?

    Now let's put it all together:

    Hebrew name--------Translated meaning

    Adam--------------------Man

    Seth----------------------Appointed

    Enosh--------------------Mortal

    Kenan--------------------Sorrow

    Mahalalel---------------The Blessed God

    Jared---------------------Shall come down

    Enoch---------------------Teaching

    Methuselah-------------His death shall bring

    Lamech-------------------The Despairing

    Noah------------------------Rest or comfort.

    The resulting message/foreshadowing is:

    Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.

    There is the good news of Jesus in the genealogy from Adam to Noah.

    So there is proof that Jesus is the Son of God from the Tanakh/Old Testament which was written hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus.

    One fulfilled prophecy that was recently fulfilled was the Isaiah 9:10 prophecy that the best-selling book the Harbinger was about.

    This prophecy was fulfilled by Tom Daschle and John Edwards after the 9/11 attack.Tom Daschle video can be seen at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukYiWd3T9skJohn

    You have been given things to ponder.The only reasonable response is that the Bible is God's gift to mankind to show us what God wants from us and how he expects us to act and what the future is.God wants us to know that Jesus/Yeshua is the Son of God and is the Savior of the world.No one can get eternal life/heavenly life without faith in Jesus and repentance of our sinful ways.We are all sinners and unless we have faith in Jesus, his blood cannot pay the penalty for our sins. The result is an eternal existence without God and his blessings. It is pure torment.Give your life to God from whom all blessings flow.

    Hebrews 11:6---But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. MKJV

    Ethics are translators of the nature to form sciences. Or ethics are the interface for us to communicate with the nature. That is both are important and missing one missing all.

    Both have value - like asking which is more valuable - a screw driver or a wrench.

    No to both. When science appears unethical, it is not science.

    Question approaches the either-or fallacy.  Avoid the fallacy by considering that science may have 55% value, 45% value (or vice versa).

    A second fallacy:  fallacy of equivocation re magisteria of "value":  the most value in science and engineering is in the measured control of atomic phenomena.  The most valuable of ethics is in the humane and spiritual development traditions.  The softer sciences are more iffy in either clear value direction, as there are many biases in psychology and sociology that are neither particular control-able nor classically based.

    Presumably your instructor is posing the question primarily to help you consider what you value--air conditioning or kindness, etc.  The two are not mutually exclusive, nor should they be.  As Mr. Einstein summarized, "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."  (This insight moves awareness beyond the "subjective-objective" false dichotomy.)

  • Ethics is something which people come to believe. They believe there is a right and a wrong in situations which affect other lives. If you see something done to another life you develop an opinion inside yourself, a judgment. In the development of a system which reflects the judgments made in such situations we may come to understand more abstract notions which generalise over many cases, and brought together these become the definition of good and bad from which we may infer the value of situations which have not even happened. 

    Ethical development consists of the construction and reconstruction of our ethical schemes. Such as which serves best. We may never know “the” right or “the” wrong, but what we have will be a near good substitute. 

    An ethical science is one which never stops to reassess itself in the light of this ever changing world. It is humble in the view that it is of service even if it is not some ultimate truth. 

    Science is a part of good ethics and ethics is a part of good science.

    That depends entirely on who you ask and what they have to gain or lose from putting one above the other. Ultimately, however, it's similar to asking whether breathing or eating is more important for long-term survival. Both are necessary.
