21st Century: Query 159 (James Watson)

“We’re not all equal, it’s simply not true. That isn’t science.


~ James Watson, an American molecular biologist, geneticist and zoologist. In 1953, he co-authored with Francis Crick the academic paper proposing the double helix structure of the DNAmolecule. He courted controversy when he insisted early on that, genetically speaking, Whites, on average, have higher I.Q.s than Blacks. In a 1 January 2019 New York Times article, Watson doubled down on his assertion of genetic inequality: “If the difference exists, we have to ask ourselves, how can we try and make it better?” He added, “And there’s a difference on the average between blacks and whites on I.Q. tests. I would say the difference is, it’s genetic.”
While some anecdotal studies show that Blacks perform less well in school and in other situations than Whites, what causes other than genetics might be true?

While his comments, in 2020, are definitely controversial, in what context is Watson defining the term “equal”?

Even as he …

Part 1: Query 253

Qu. Whether as credit became current, and this raised the value of land, the security must not of course rise?

21st Century: Query 158 (Dorothea Dix)

“Why not, when it can be done without exposure or expense, let me rescue some of America’s miserable children from vice and guilt?”


~ Dorothea Dixwas an American advocate on behalf of the indigent mentally ill who, through a vigorous and sustained program of lobbying state legislatures and the United States Congress, created the first generation of American mental asylums.
How might we apply this concept to the foreign-born children now being held in modern day concentration camps?



Part 1: Query 252

Qu. Whether mismanagement, prodigal living, hazards by trade, which often affect private banks, are equally to be apprehended in a public one?

21st Century: Query 157 (Charlemagne or Charles the Great)

“To have another language is to possess a second soul.”


~ Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, was King of the Franks from 768, King of the Lombards from 774, and Emperor of the Romans from 800 to 813, when he effectively turned the crown over to his son Louis the Pious, king of Aquitaine.
How might this statement ring true?

Are multi-lingual speakers innately more intelligent than mono-lingual speakers? Why or why not?

Should U.S. schools be required to teach a second language to all students, beginning in Kindergarten? Why or why not?

If so, what second language should they learn?

What seems to hold the U.S. back in the teaching of foreign languages?

21st Century: Query 156 (Benjamin Franklin and Donald Trump)

“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain – and most fools do.”


~ Benjamin Franklinwas an American polymath and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Franklin was a leading writer, printer, political philosopher, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. As an inventor, he is known for the lightning rod, bifocals, and the Franklin stove, among other inventions. He founded many civic organizations, including the Library Company, Philadelphia’s first fire department and the University of Pennsylvania.

In 2018 Donald Trump seemed to prove Franklin’s truism when he said, “I would give myself an A+” and “You know, I was dealt a lot of bad hands.” On the ridiculous scale of 1-10, 10 being the most foolish, how would you rate these two Donald Trump quotes? Why?


Part 1: Query 251

Qu. Whether the public can become bankrupt so long as the notes are issued on good security?

21st Century: Query 155 (Rene Descartes)

“In order to improve the mind, we ought less to learn, than to contemplate.”

One of the most notable intellectual figures of the Dutch Golden Age, Descartes is also widely regarded as one of the founders of modern philosophy.

What is the difference between “learning” and “contemplating”?

Based on his assertion, is Descartes advocating for less formal schooling? Why or why not?



Part 1: Query 250

21st Century: Query 154 (Robert Bunsen)

21st Century: Query 153 (Maxim Gorky)

Ideologically a Marxist, Davis was a member of the Communist Party USA until 1991, after which she joined the breakaway Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism. She is the author of over ten books on class, feminism, and the U.S. prison system.

The Serenity Prayer God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.

21st Century: Query 148 (Grover Cleveland)

~ Grover Cleveland, an American politician and lawyer, was the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, the only president in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office (1885–1889 and 1893–1897). He won the popular vote for three presidential elections—in 1884, 1888, and 1892—and was one of two Democrats (with Woodrow Wilson) to be elected president during the era of Republican political domination dating from 1861 to 1933.
How might this statement no longer be true?

Name a leader, past or present, who represents the best or worst of Cleveland’s assertion.

Explain why you have selected this specific leader for analysis.



21st Century: Query 147 (St. Patrick)

“The most High approveth not the gifts of the wicked.”


~ Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the “Apostle of Ireland,” he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, the other patron saints being Brigit of Kildare and Columba. He is venerated in the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Lutheran Churches, and the Old Catholic Church, and in the Eastern Orthodox Church as equal-to-the-apostles and Enlightener of Ireland.
How may Evangelicals, in 2020, reconcile this sentiment to their absolute support of a rogue and amoral president?

How can our current religious leaders change how we allow such evil to prevail?

How have we begun to see cracks in the absolute Evangelical support of our current President

Part 1: Query 243

He is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” for his pivotal role in drafting and promoting the Constitution of the United States and the United States Bill of Rights. He co-wrote The Federalist Papers, co-founded the Democratic-Republican Party, and served as the fifth United States secretary of State from 1801 to 1809.
If our leaders routinely abuse their power, why or why not should ordinary citizens abuse their liberty?
