Revisions (Stargate SG-1)

Although this is not an episode from The Twilight Zone, it functions like one. I think this was by far the most significant of the worldview videos we watched and discussed in our Worldview and Apologetics class.

Linkpeople2

This assignment is based on the Stargate SG-1 episode Revisions (season 7 episode 5).

[WHERE TO WATCH THESE VIDEOS]

  1. How accurate do you think your memories are? (Write at least one sentence.)
  2. How do you know for sure an evil alien or demon is not altering your memories? (This is a question a philosopher named Rene Descartes brought up hundreds of years ago.) Answer this question from your own point of view. (Write at least one sentence.)
  3. What is the video’s answer to the question above? (Write at least one sentence; skip this one if you didn’t watch the video.)
  4. What are some other ways we could be fooled about the things we remember? Make a list of at least three ways.
  5. Can you trust our memory to show you that your memory are accurate? Why or why not? (Write at least one sentence.)

  7. In the show, how do the people in the dome find out their memories have not been accurate? (Write at least one sentence; skip this one if you didn’t watch the video.)
  8. How is the dome people’s problem similar to the problem many people in the world have today? Who tells them what they should think about truth? How do they know what is true?

  11. What is the most reliable way that this person communicates with us? (Write at least one sentence.)
  12. What form does that message take for Christians? (If it is a book, what is the title of the book?) (Write at least one sentence. Give at least one Bible reference to support your answer, and paraphrase the passage or write down at least two verses from it. Explain how the passage supports your answer.)

  15. How is this like the way non-believers sometimes view Christians? (Write at least one sentence. Give at least one Bible reference to support your answer, and paraphrase the passage or write down at least two verses from it. Explain how the passage supports your answer.
