Explain how misleading reasoning is used to influence others.
Which one of these topics interest you, “is the sample known?, is the sample sufficient? and is the sample representative?” and explain how you would come up with a reliable sample for obtaining peoples’ opinions.

InterCommTeam answers:

It’s using logic in such a way that it deliberately causes you to reach an incorrect conclusion.

I don’t understand your supplementary question.

Daniel asks…

How did Satan use a snake to lure Eve into false reasoning, regarding Life & Knowledge?

Even though we cannot see them, evil spirit creatures do exist.(you can feel the wind but you can’t see it) The Bible relates that an invisible spirit person used a serpent, much as a ventriloquist uses a dummy, to communicate with the first woman, Eve, and led her to rebel against God. (Genesis 3:1-5) The Bible identifies this spirit person as “the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth.” (Revelation 12:9) That one, Satan, succeeded in enticing other angels into rebellion. (Jude 6) These wicked angels became demons, enemies of God.

“Spirit of Python.” In Philippi, Macedonia, Paul met a servant girl who was possessed by “a demon of divination,” literally, “a spirit of python” (Gr., pneu′ma py′tho‧na; Ac 16:16). “Python” was the name of the mythical snake that guarded the temple and oracle of Delphi, Greece. The word py′thon came to refer to a person who could foretell the future and also to the spirit that spoke through that one. Although later used to denote a ventriloquist, here in Acts it is used to describe a demon who enabled a young girl to practice the art of prediction.

The Bible shows that demons have the power to influence humans. (Luke 8:26-34) It is no wonder, then, that God’s Law says: “There should not be found in you anyone . . . who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead. For everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12) What are the risks of ignoring this law?

Linda asks…


Here are the rules for the prompts:

Respond to both prompts, using a maximum of 1,000 words total.
You may allocate the word count as you wish. If you choose to respond to one prompt at greater length, we suggest your shorter answer be no less than 250 words.
Stay within the word limit as closely as you can. A little over — 1,012 words, for example — is fine.

Okay, now that the rules are out of the way, PROMPT ONE:

“Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.”

here is what I came up with:

My dreams and hopes have been most influenced by two things: my religion and my family. My religion is Islam, and it has always played a large role in my life. I’ve always been fascinated by Islam and have always wanted to know as much as I could about it. Realizing the lack of knowledge people in my community have about Islam has only made me more determined to learn about it. Growing up, I have come across many people, Muslims as well as non-Muslims, who misunderstood Islam. The Muslim community around me is very small and there seems to be a lack of knowledge within the people. Since I was a child I have wanted to teach people about what Islam really is because I’ve seen people misleading others because they twisted things around for their own personal gain.
I wish to use the knowledge I would gain to be a teacher myself. My dream is to be a teach Islamic studies so I can have studied what I want, and make money from it too. Money is not my only reason for wanting to study Islam in school, but I do want to start a family some day and I would need to be able to take care of my wife and children. I’d need to give them a nice safe place to live, unlike where I grew up. I would need to have a way to support them, to give them a nice house in a good community to live in, food to eat, clothes to wear, a nice, reliable car to drive, and be able to give them the things they want as well so that they could live happy lives.
I wouldn’t want my children growing up in the same type of neighborhood I grew up in. I don’t want any children of mine having the same type of childhood I had. And being educated in my religion, I pray, would prevent me from making the same mistakes my parents made that lead to the marital issues between that later caused their divorce. I’d hate for my kids to live the way I live right now. Misery and depression is something I want to keep away from my family. And part of my religion is to do the best I can for my family, to give them the best that I can and I intend to follow that rule.
I want to be a good example to my children, something that would be quite hard to do if I didn’t properly care for my family. Looking back on my childhood, I see that my parents were not the type of examples they should have been. As a child, I always thought my family was perfectly happy, but now I see just how miserable my childhood was. Marital issues between my parents caused a great deal of problems for my siblings and I. Their relationship with each other was ruining their relationships with us children.
There were no good influences in the house and there certainly weren’t any outside. I was lost when I finally realized the real condition of my family. I began to think I was destined for sadness and pain my entire life and so I stopped caring. I no longer cared for anything, and so everything in my life began to suffer for it, including my grades. Fortunately, I was able to get myself back together in time and am now working on a better future for myself. With all the pain and sorrow of the past, I am even more determined to to reach my dreams.


Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?

Here’s what I came up with:

Two of my best personal qualities have always been my intelligence and my determination. Through the combined use of the two I have been able to overcome many obstacles in my life. With my intelligence I was able to skip the first and third grade, thus having a head start as far as school. However, looking back I find that determination has been the most important of the two. Back when I was in eight grade, troubles at home began effecting my performance in school. I began to lose concern about a number of things because I thought that no matter what I was destined for failure and misery. I believed that it didn’t matter how hard I tried my life would always be filled with disappointments. Once my determination started going away, I became lazier and didn’t care enough to do all of my work on time.
By sophomore year of high school my constant procrastinating caused me to fail quite a few of my classes. I knew I could do better but I didn’t care enough to put a

I suggest you allocate more words to Prompt Two. Also, you can cut out many unnecessary words to increase the number of important points you can make. Here is my humble attempt at simplifying one of your paragraphs:

Sandra asks…

I really need your kind help~Could you help me to polish my composition?

I”m an english learner~ thank you very much!
Topic:People are used to watching disasters and violence in TV programs. What are reasons and what are effects on individual and society as a whole?
TV media has become one of the most pervasive industry inthe word,so it’s standard practice for people to accept the latest disastrous and violent case through TV programme.what we should do is to identity the causes and the implication of this phenomenon.
As far as I am concerned,the causes are manifold.first and foremost,the incidence of diasters and violence is climing at an ever-increasing rate,consequently,the programmes concerning these topics are reported and discussed on TV inevitably.Besides,as the TV media ,which has the characteristic of credibility and vitality ,can better represent the spot of disaster and violence.addtionally,from the angle of the person,more and more people are eager to enhance related knowledge such as how to attempt to avoid and escape from disasters,how to keep away from crimes,etc, which can be satisfied by the TV media.

This phenomenon exert both beneficial and baneful impact on individuals and society as a whole.on one hand,Reporting about the sever penalties on violent criminals can help boost the awareness of complying with laws,and decline the incidence of crimes effectively.Eventually,it contributes to the stability of our society and the societal well-being..

On the other hand,with these cases reported frequently,people may consider the incidence of disasters and violent crimes are hovering ,many have become disturbed and alarmed,as a result,our society is awash with a kind of nervous atmosphere,which will have substancially negative efect on our society’s development.addtionally,the violent scenes abounding in violent cases will mislead the yongersters, who have bluring understanding of right and wrong and are easy to mimic those violent scenes.

To summarize,the causes of this phenomenon are multiple,as for all the influences,I’m convinced that we should strive to seek out the effective ways to minimize the banes of the prolieration and get our TV media better regulated to promot the development of our society.

InterCommTeam answers:

I can’t redo it for you, because you’ve got to learn. Spotted problems include:

number of objects. Eg. Industry vs. Industries. You have a problem with pluralizing.

You need a space after punctuation. Always. An example might be, “Brigham bought it, then he destroyed it. Bonnie destroyed it, then Brigham bought it.

“causes are manifold.” Word choice, a manifold is a part of an engine. Maybe you meant numerous or multifaceted?

Does the media have credibility? Oh, and vitality is an odd word choice here, regardless your beliefs.

Spot of violence? Perhaps you meant spectre or nature?

Clause about media giving valuable safety tips just isn’t a satisfying clincher. Why? It’s obvious. That’s how the news media defends its crass reports on burglers and supposedly dangerous toys.

Baneful? Thesarauses can get you in trouble. I think you used that word right, but nobody’s used that word in a century. Revise.

Phenomene exerts, not exert. Why? It’s still performing the action of exertion.

Severe. Sever is to cut away something. Be careful with like words.

Do sensationalist stories make criminals scared? Do you have a citation for that? As a counter-proof, most pot smokers don’t seem to scared of arrest.

Do kids really mimic the violence of the telly? It’s one of those quandries, or hard to know things. Lots of research in both directions, with people with agendas running off with to shout on TV about immorality.

Mislead the youngsters. No, not in an essay, but maybe in an opinion piece for the local paper. This is a little English nuance, but “youngsters” is very coloquial. Try “younger generations,” “youths” or “impressionable children” instead.

To summarize is too trite/common a closer. Don’t use it. The reader knows a summary is coming, so why tell them?

“banes of the prolieration?” Sorry, but I don’t understand that one bit.

I think you need to work on your syntax and writing style a bit. The rest isn’t bad for an ESL draft, nor is your writing style, but it’s the main thing that gives your writing away and makes it hard to understand. I think it’s just one of those things that comes with time, but you could get a style manual at your local public library.

InterCommTeam answers:

They won’t know the real reason which means they have lack of knowledge and when they don’t have knowledge you can use them so that they will follow your ways because ignorance is the key to power and now will you have power over people who do not know the real reason behind what you present to them is to be true.
