However, most people failed to interpret the messages that God sent to His people may be due to our feeble state of mind and the culture we are living in. Most of the messages that God sends to His people do not have any problem and are very accurate. However, the problem lies with the Prophet him/herself who fails to interpret and deliver the message as intended. Most of the prophecies are in form of poems, songs, and figures, which are difficult to interpret.

...Hooks, Talking Back and Female One of the primary messages in Bell Hooks' essay "Talking Back" is the concept that talking back or responding in any way other than submission to authority figures meant she was daring to disagree or express an opinion as if she were an equal to the person she is talking with. This was always considered inappropriate because she was a woman and women were not supposed to have any authority. This idea is seen in many of the things we've read this semester as it is expressed by several female authors including Bell Hooks, Maya Angelou, Gwendolyn Brooks and Kate Chopin. Bell Hooks starts off the discussion by blatantly writing about women's lack of authority... Bell Hooks,...

(Bueche, 1980) Robert Hooke, a British physicist, was the first to report on the relation between the force exerted on a spring and its deformation. He defined the relation as “the extension is proportional to the force”. If a weight, W = mg, is hung from one end of an ordinary spring, causing it to stretch a distance x, then an equal and opposite force, F, is created in the spring which opposes the pull of the weight.
