The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
- Terms Related to the Moving Wall
- Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
- Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
- Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.

Does God Exist?
In this essay I am going to create a balanced argument from over the years which many people have used to base their beliefs on whether or not God exists. Furthermore the topic of God is such an important issue in the past few years due to the Iraq war and recent terrorist attacks. It is of importance because in the Iraq war we have a predominantly White-Christian country occupying a predominantly Middle eastern-Muslim country, each with opposing religious beliefs.

Alerting the senses that the area around them is radioactive. So far no theist has produced an instrument that makes a “Click” or any sort of alert, even through prayer, that God exists. In defiance of needing some sort of alert to prove that God exists, theists say “We can look around at God's creation and have all out senses alerted by nature itself.” This argument is relatively new to the philosopher's world and it has been dubbed 'The Atheists Nightmare'. However it still relies on looking at nature itself as proof that God exists. This argument is based around the idea that a banana carries the characteristics of being created by an intelligent designer, simply because it is the perfect food for a human being. The basis of the argument is that they are five edges around a banana that fit exactly into the contours of the human hand. Which make it easy to grip and will not slip out of your fingers.

When the banana is ripe the skin will turn into it's commonly known yellow colour, and when the banana has become over ripe it turns a black off putting colour. God in his infinite wisdom has also created a convenient “tab” at the top
