- This Theory Of The Universe Is Based On The Ideas Of A Caveman, Named That Lived - 1,286 words
This theory of the universe is based on the ideas of a caveman, named that lived many thousands of years before the birth of Christ. His observations were made only through the use of his body, for there were no tools to aid him in his findings. His findings were based on his observations and the accepted views of the world during his lifetime. This is what he had to say: The earth was the center of the universe. This is an absolute, indisputable fact because it is obvious that the moon, sun, and other heavanly objects travel in paths around the earth. This is true, to the fact that certain objects appear in different parts of the sky at different times during either day or night. The shape ...

... in numerous altercations as children. Not as bullies but rather as fighters, the type of person who would not back down once attacked or hurt. This seemed like a strange connection between the type of job and a similarity in childhood activities, because significantly less than a third of school populations engage in fights on a regular basis. This seems to point at a genetic capacity for violence and aggression. More informally, Gwynne Dyer has felt, through his experiences as a soldier, his genes at work as he says; Aggression is certainly part of our genetic makeup, and necessarily so, but the normal human beings quota of aggression will not cause him to kill acquaintances, let alone ...

- Modern Music - 1,591 words
Modern Music Music has been around for thousands and thousands of years. The caveman had originally started some type of sounds in which branched off into the music that we listen to today. This prehistoric music was started by the cavemen in order for them to express themselves, and the others who listened were affected in the same way that people are affected by music today. For example, if someone is upset they will listen to something that will get them into a better mood, perhaps something mellow or soft. If they are happy, they will listen to something that is more energetic, and so on. After I interviewed four people--friends and family--I found out what type of music they listened to ...

- Odyssey Themes - 1,954 words
Odyssey Themes When Homer wove the characters of The Odyssey into a story, he undoubtedly left room for interpretation of their actions. The characters, most of whom are dynamic, colorful, and three dimensional, are used by Homer to give a fun but truthful commentary on the Ancient Greeks and their way of life. The actions of one figure, the man-eating monster named Skylla, are particularly interesting when viewed in the context of the rest of the story. Though her contribution to the plot is minor, Skylla's actions are important in that they are characteristic of several themes found throughout the poem. These themes include the role of the female in Odysseus's struggle, the hunger (figurat ...

- Origin Of Heiroglyphics - 1,116 words
Origin of Heiroglyphics Origin of Heiroglyphics Ancient Egypt conjures up thoughts of a great civilization, one very advanced for its time. The Ancient Egyptians invented all different forms of literature, including poetry and short stories, and they were extremely advanced as far as art, medicine, science, and religion went.

The origin of these hieroglyphics seems to also to be misunderstood by many people.

Sociology 01 Gender Roles Essay Question #5 When analyzing gender roles in our age today, we are less likely to see the striking differences in the characteristics of men and women as they were portrayed let's say thirty years ago. However, a strong sense of Androcentricity still remains in not only our society but is stronger than ever in other societies around the world. From the beginning of time, from what we've learned in textbooks, television, and other sources of media, of course, the male figure has always been portrayed as powerful, the decision-maker, and the head of the household. When we think of prehistoric times, for instance, I could almost bet that mental picture of a caveman ...
