This is the topic: Some critics have pointed out that religion represents everyone’s ultimate search for the true God. Write an essay in which you support and/or refute this claim.
Choose ONE of the prompts below as the basis for a clear argumentative and critical essay demonstrating your understanding of what we have considered thus far in our Ethics course. The essay should be APA-formatted (include title page and a Reference page) and should have a minimum of five (5) well-developed paragraphs, including the introduction, three substantive body paragraphs, and a thought-provoking conclusion. Include a Reference for your textbook. You should have an explicit thesis statement which states your essential claim. Stay in 3rd-person formal point-of-view (no “I,” “you,” “we”). Provide a meaningful title for the essay, as well, which captures the overall significance of the analysis.
You may include applicable quotes and/or references from the textbook, but you are not expected to use additional references. If you do, you must document appropriately. Proof your essay carefully. Submit your final essay as an APA-formatted Word document into the respective assignment folder. Turnitin.com will scan all essays.
