  • A Comparison Of Early Civilizations - 1,178 words
    A comparison of Early Civilizations A comparison of Early civilizations After reading the articles on early civilization, I've identified several similarities and differences about the people who were from these three cultures. The civilizations in the articles include, the people from Mesopotamia, the Quiche' Indians, a tribe in early Meso-America, and "The book of Genesis" which offers a Christian or biblical explanation of how our own civilization originated. I will tell you about how they believed they came into existence and what they thought they should do to ensure their civilization continued. The three stories offered insight on how the different cultures lived by describing how the ...

  • Ancient Egyptian And Mesopotamian Cultures - 1,548 words
    Ancient Egyptian And Mesopotamian Cultures Ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian Cultures Around the time 4,000-1,000 BC there were two major western civilizations. Those civilizations were the Ancient Egyptians and the Mesopotamians. Many similarities exist between the civilizations of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, as well as many differences. Both Egypt and Mesopotamia were polytheistic, that is, they believed their worlds were ruled by more than one god. Both cultures also believed that they themselves were created for the purpose of serving their gods. Their similarities include the existence of educational systems and codes of law. Their differences are found partly in those similarities, ...

  • Culture Awareness - 1,454 words
    Culture Awareness I was planning to take a leisurely trip this summer, but now I think I'll have to change my plans. Instead I'll probably have to take a crash course in Sensitivity for the Culturally Unaware. Maybe it's because I grew up in Chicago, perhaps the most culturally diverse city in the country. Maybe it's because I have a mulatto niece and nephew. Maybe it's because my cousin's last name is now Hernandez. Maybe it's because my wife's cousin is a Native American. Or maybe it's because we Poles have borne the brunt of more jokes than any other ethnic group, but all this time I thought I was aware of other cultures and the feelings of members of other ethnic groups and minorities.

  • Did God Create Humans Or Did Humans Create God - 656 words
    Did God Create Humans Or Did Humans Create God? Who Made Who Who made who? Did God create humans or did humans create god? At first thought one would of course say God created humans. Man cannot create god! What fool would dare say such a thing! After all the definition of God says that it is the supreme being and the divine creator, not the divine creation. So of course God created man, right? Or shall we dig a little deeper into this question and examine it from the other side? Is God just a figment of mans elaborate imagination? Could it be that God is a mythological tool used by man to manipulate the mind to give explanations to the unexplainable? If this is true then humans created god. ...

  • Gilgamesh Flood Story Vs Genesis Flood Story - 947 words
    Gilgamesh Flood Story Vs. Genesis Flood Story The amazing stories of the great flood that are described in, The Epic of Gilgamesh which is translated by N.K. Sandars and ""The Story of the Flood"" which is the King James version, both stories similarly. Many of the events of each story are very similar in ways and very different in some of them. From reading both stories I concluded that there was a huge flood that took place in that area of the world. Even though the way both stories describe the flood; The Epic of Gilgamesh is more imaginable. I say that because it is more realistic to have rain for six days, six nights than for forty days, forty nights. Both flood stories have a major sim ...

  • Models Of Reality - 1,086 words
    Models Of Reality "In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth" (Gen 1:1). These words, along with the rest in Genesis, and for that matter, the rest of the bible, seem to give a very definite image of our Christian God as an entity clearly different from the humans he creates. Although He may walk and talk with Adam and Eve through the Garden of Eden at the beginning of Genesis, He soon exits the human world to a more ethereal place far off in the heavens. Similarly, the creation stories from the tribal people in the Indian state Orissa seem to hold the same concept that their gods too had at one time or another taken a physical part in the creation of their world, but they also ...

  • Myths Theories - 673 words
    Myth`s Theories There are four basic theories of myth. Those theories are: the rational myth theory, functional myth theory, structural myth theory, and the phsycological myth theory.

  • Prometheus - 521 words
    Prometheus Though long engraved into history, the ancient world of Greece still remains present throughout the cradle of humanity in several ways. It's rich contributions in literature, drama and art have shaped even modern civilizations. Through the characters in the Greek myths, morals and standards that remain to dominate society are presented to us. These figures in mythology appeared as gods, goddesses, heroes, and even mortals, who teach not just through their triumphs but also through their less honorable moments. One of the most noble of these characters, was Prometheus. Prometheus was a Titan (or elder god) who could often see into the future. He first enters mythological tales when ...

  • Sumerian Views Of Death - 1,245 words
    Sumerian Views Of Death Civilization is defined as a state that binds people together to transcend tides of family, clan, tribe, and village. (Woolf, H.B., 1974, p.141) By using this definition, one can compare and contrast the many different traits that the Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilizations had. Both The Epic of Gilgamesh and the three Egyptian funerary documents are very good examples of written documents that show these two differences in civilization. The Epic of Gilgamesh is a long narrative poem which shows the many trials set before a young hero. (Andrea, A.; Overfield, J.H., 1998, p.8) This epic was discovered on twelve clay tablets in the remains of a library dated back to the ...

  • The Mythology Of Ancient Egypt - 1,879 words
    The Mythology of Ancient Egypt CREATION Egyptian creation stories tell of several variations of how the world was composed. According to one variation, the ocean was the only thing in existence. Then the sun, Ra, came out of an egg (or a flower in some versions) that appeared on the surface of the water. Ra created four children. They were the gods Shu and Geb and the goddesses Tefnut and Nut. Shu and Tefnut became the air, who stood on Geb, the earth, and held up Nut, who became the sky. Ra ruled over all. It was not uncommon for siblings to have children in ancient Egypt, and Geb and Nut had two sons, Set and Osiris, and two daughters, Isis and Nephthys. Osiris succeeded Ra as the king of ...

The fact of the matter is that Yeats purposefully has more than one interpretation of The Second Coming. He wants the average person to open his or her creative mind and to analyze every influence, language, and imagery to understand the message he is trying to get across. When reading the opening lines of The Second Coming there are two meaning Yeats is trying to portray. In the opening figuration, the center is man, unable as the falconer to no longer maintain control over a turning and turning movement. Man is going through constant chaos that is affecting all of society. I ...

  • The Star - 760 words
    The Star This science fiction story called "The Star" has many religious and spiritual overtones which makes the theme of the story 'There always has to be one to save all" more obvious. From the first to the last sentence the theme was built throughout to be a parallel experience of what has happened to the people before the great flood. Like many great science fiction stories this one shares a great message of hope in the unknown and to be glad that we have been so lucky to survive whatever we were supposed to have survived. This story was written in the late 1970's because of the reference to the Mark VI computer. In the first paragraph there is brief indication of religious symbols such ...

  • Theology Of Love And Hate - 1,069 words
    Theology Of Love And Hate Theology of Love or Hate? "I make seeking my salvation the main business of my life." (editor, Perkins. 103). At the time of the preceding statement, Jonathan Edwards neither had a full understanding of Gods redeeming love or the ability to convey the simplicity of salvation through the love of Jesus Christ. It is improper and unscriptural to imply that an individual must make the quest for eternal life a prolonged and protracted journey. This places the salvation experience, or the eternal life goal, in the same class as it would the lifetime crusade of a physician desiring to help and heal others. Jesus said in the gospel according to St. John 3:16-17 (NIV), "For ...

  • To Help Us With Our Study Of Origins, We Will Use Two Main Sources: The Bible As Gods Direct Revelation Of Life, And Science - 1,160 words
    To help us with our study of origins, we will use two main sources: the Bible as Gods direct revelation of life, and science a way to interpret the Bible using scientific knowledge. In his book Biology Through the Eyes of Faith, R.T. Wright (1989) states: "It is an important conclusion of faith that both science and Scripture are sources of knowledge of Gods works and that, when properly understood, should not lead to conflicts." I agree with this statement, believing that God created the original species. I also uphold a belief that a series of natural processes lead to the formation of other species thereby increasing the diversity of life on earth. By carefully studying both science and ...

  • To His Coy Mistress By Marvell - 604 words
    To His Coy Mistress By Marvell To His Coy Mistress Andrew Marvell wrote his short poem To His Coy Mistress in a certain way to receive the answer that he wanted out of his mistress. Marvell uses meter, imagery, and tone to persuade his lady to further commit in their relationship. This poem has a very strong carpe diem, or seize the day, theme which is conveyed throughout the poem. In general, the meter of the poem is iambic tetrameter. Marvell uses pauses as well as runs one line into the next without a pause to break up the neat pattern that the rhyme scheme of the poem imposes. The first two lines, for example, contain internal pauses that break the tetrameter into shorter units; Had we ...

  • Ufo Fact Or Fiction - 1,313 words
    UFO Fact Or Fiction annon Unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, as they're fondly called, are one of the century's most intriguing and controversial mysteries. Since ancient times, UFOs of all types have been accounted for. More today than ever, hundreds of thinkers, theologians, and scientists have tried to answer why there are or whether there aren't UFOs. According to some, the speculation that UFOs are alien spacecrafts from another world is an absurd and foolish proposal. Others vehemently disagree and assert that extraterrestrial life is not only possible, but such life forms may be superior, technologically advanced beings who visit our Earth regularly. Are these 'flying saucers' a fi ...
