What do you feel compelled to prove and to whom do you have to prove it?
I had the lyrics of a song in my head for a long time (not the music mind you, just the lyrics). The concept of the song is about our individual need to prove something. Maybe I'm the only one. I realized, though, at one point of my life, that I stopped trying to prove anything to anyone. (That's the gift of getting older!) I'm looking for things we feel we have to prove to people for my song/poem or whatever it turns out to be. THANKS
I feel compelled to prove to my peers and my elders that my worth is in excess of what they expect of me. If you need to prove anything to anyone, prove that you are a good person and that you can be successful at anything that you choose to do.
With a philosophy like that phtech, you surely have already proved to your peers and elders your worth. "In excess of what they expect of me" is a great line to work in a poem or lyric because of the repitition of "ex". Mind if I use it in some way?
Not a damn thing to no one in particular--------------------!
-the most authentic way to live! Was it always that way for you Jim? That's the way I feel now - well, ALMOST, except for getting my short story made into a movie, my business making money, n writing something of value (I gotta prove that to me)
To prove to myself that I can be a people person. Throughout high school, I kept to myself. It took college for me to actually begin to talk to people and make friends. So I continue to prove to myself that I can be a people person regardless of my lack of experience.

How do you prove anything?!!My conclusion is that NOTHING is really factual or true. NOTHING can be completely proven.......But what say you?

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?

How can one prove the existance of a God, only relying on scripture? How is a passage in the bible supposed to prove anything? It's no different than any of the other claims made throughout history. Why not say that their fact as well?

Do standardized tests determine who will be successful?As a former music teacher I noticed that a week or two before standardized tests all classes/recess were cancelled to cram test ?'s and answers to the test. Does this really prove what kids have learned or how successful they will be in life?
