I have to write a research paper on a debatable topic for a college class. I have a few ideas in mind but certain constraints may limit my possibilities. I must cite six scholarly sources, and I must include one statistical chart or graph. My first idea for a thesis, was “Free will is an illusion”, and my next, “religious institutions should not be tax exempt”. I really want to do the former but I think it will be difficult to find six appropriate scholarly sources to cite. I thought of the experiment where the neurology of decision-making is observed in MRI, (or PET?) which must be published in journals somewhere, but what else could I possibly include? I also don’t really know what type of sources to look for to support the latter thesis (religious institutions should not be tax exempt). I am studying to be a high school science teacher and I thought a paper on science education in America might be appropriate, but I’m not sure about a thesis. I’m not asking for you to do my research for me, I would just like some ideas or suggestions. Thanks for any help!
Look up Benjamin Libet.
