controversial issue debated by the two sides is the creation of everything in the universe, from stars and planets to plants and people. Christians use the Bible, specifically the book of Genesis, to support their belief of creation, while scientists support their ideas with observational data and mathematical calculations.

The Old Testament and the Bible itself has been studied extensively for centuries. Archeologists and Scholars have labored and pondered over texts trying to decipher its clues. It does not matter how many times the Old Testament has been studied there will always be something new to learn about it or the history surrounding it. In the book Reading the Old Testament: an Introduction, the author Lawrence Boadt presents us with a few different authors of the Old Testament that used different names for

enormous explosion, now called “The Big Bang Theory.” That is nothing but a theory. It has not been proven that it is true. As simple as it is for us to believe in air, without air we would not be here. Id it was not for god, we would not have a universe to live in. Other reasons to believe in our creator is that all of the aspects of how earth was created are just theories, there has to be some God that created it all. We are not mistakes made by a cell from the big bang, from monkeys, animals or any

Placher states that to understand how the Bible is true we need to first accept its genres, recognize its attitudes toward historical details, and consider the social context of the language in which it was written.

God and Allah are one God and both religions believe in one God. Religion plays a big part in a every day life, it helps us during hard times
Amistadthe Movie Amistad Being an African American male, I have been told somewhat the story about slavery. I mean of course I have been told of the Martin Luther Kings, the Malcolm Xs, and the Rosa Parks and the many struggles and life threatening obstacles they went through for all blacks to become free from opression. Before watching the movie Amistad, I never really knew of the boat rides, the chaining of women and men together and putting boulders at the end of the ropes and throwing
most challenging things I discovered this semester include: Most books written in the New Testament do not have known authors, instead the author attached to most books stem from tradition Within each book, the reader is given a picture of Jesus.
