Origins of Man

I find the statement made by the scientist who claimed that the pyramids were built back in 10,500 B.C. very difficult to believe. He claimed that they were built that long ago, but he and others believe that the first civilization didnt come about until around 3,500 B.C. I have researched and found a continuous chronological order of events which is much more believable than A 7,000 Year Gap in time. Since everything in the Bible has been proven true archeologically and chronologically, I chose it as my source. The Bible states that God told Moses, who wrote the early history of the world, about everything that took place before his time. I am going to write my opinion up until the time of Moses.
By taking the facts and records found in the Bible and doing a little math, God made the first human, Adam, in the year 3900 B.C. This was the beginning of civilization. Adam was a fully intelligent human being with the equivalent brain capacity that we have today.
By using the genealogy found in Genesis there came a man named Noah in 2843 B.C. God had seen nothing but wickedness in the world and He was sorry that he had created everything. But Noah and his family found favor in the eyes of the Lord so God told Noah to build an ark large enough for two of every animal. Noah did what God had commanded him and seven days after he entered the ark the rain began. It rained for forty days and nights during which time everything on the face of the earth was destroyed, including any pyramids, if they had been built before this time. Noah was on the ark for a few days over a year from the time he entered the ark until the waters receded and he and his family stepped onto a mountaintop. The ark had landed on top of Mt. Ararat in 2244 B.C. When many of the animals left, they were not suited to the new climate and many of them died, which most likely included the dinosaurs.
According to legends, folklore, and scripture from many religions, there are records of a great flood in places such as the Middle East, India, China, Australia, southern Asia, the islands of the Pacific, Europe and the Americas.

Essay on Is Man of Steel True to the Superman Legacy?

- ... Opposed to the original Superman in which Superman would be fully developed within the first scene of the movie. In addition to his powers being fully developed, Superman would have already established his arch nemesis as well. This course of action took way to long, and while understanding that the director wanted a firm background of Clark Kent as well as Kal-El this action could have been more upfront. In Man of Steel Clark Kent should have transformed into Superman and shown the world who he really is and his powers that he withholds at a more readily time; similarly to the original comics....   [tags: origins, movie, powers, citizens]

Taoism’s Historical Origins and Leaders Essay

- Taoism is an ancient Chinese religion, a religion of peace focused on universal balance. The religion itself, though generally surviving today, was almost entirely wiped out in ancient times. Taoism’s primary symbol is still visible on the global market in modern times, though it tends to carry somewhat different meanings then it necessarily did previously. An incredibly life-structure oriented religion, it has permeated through society and is more easily understood through analysis of Taoism’s historical origins and leaders, its types and beliefs, ethics, and the modern influences of Taoism on society....   [tags: Historical Origins, Culture]

Essay on The Humorist for the Common Man: James Thurber

- As America was changing during the early twentieth century, so was humor and few writers could easily adapt to this change with success as well as James Thurber did as a cartoonist, journalist, and an author of short stories, fables, fairytales, and plays, Thurber highlighted the problems of everyday life that were often the result of the transition in America from a masculine, frontier society, to an urban, more feminized society (Buckley, New Criterion). He shied away from major problems of the world and instead made his focus “the immemorial stupidities, cruelties and perversities of men that lie at the root of our ills” (Hasley)....   [tags: humor, james thurber, common man]

Origins of Morality Essay

- The moral philosophy that we know and recognize today in the Western world is slave morality, a morality which puts forward ideals of fairness, equality, and democracy. However, many centuries ago during the medieval times, master morality was the norm; a morality that favors those superior in strength, beauty, intelligence, and status.

Essay on Rousseau 's Discourse On The Origins Of Inequality

- Rousseau argues in his Discourse on the Origins of Inequality that inequalities are created by social construction. Naturally, inequalities do not exist, but because man creates boundaries and distinguishes one another, political and moral inequalities are created. Since the 18th century, during Rousseau’s time, the history of inequalities have changed, and ideas of imperialism, racism, and sexism have shifted between then and the 20th century. Private property was a leading cause of inequalities according to Rousseau....   [tags: World War II, Nazi Germany, Slavery, World War I]

Essay on Origins of the Catholic Church in Australia.

- Origins of the Catholic Church in Australia. The first Catholics to come along to Australia, were amongst the first convicts to step foot on the shores of Port Jackson in Sydney. These Catholics were Irish in origin, and brought Catholicism to Australia, although Anglican Ministers were trying to stop the spread of Catholicism in Great Britain and her colonies.

Throughout all of history we see evidence of man's tendencies toward acting violently in response to his emotions - everything from anger, fear, to just plain enjoyment.

Excavations in Mesopotamia have led archaeologists and other scientists to conclude that a flood was so destructive that it made a lasting impression on the population and became a subject for the ancient literature of the period. Also archeologists have found billions fossils in water-deposited sedimentary rock in every elevation, and in almost every part of the world. If there wasnt a world-wide flood this would be an impossible fact to explain.
The descendants of Noahs family multiplied and settled in the area of Babylon where they began to build the Tower of Babel, which was a ziggurat. The Sumerian ziggurat in present-day Iraq could be its remains. God became angry because He told the people to multiply and spread throughout the earth and they hadnt. So He confused their language and scattered them over the face of the earth.
One of Noahs sons, Shem, had a son named Peleg and in Genesis 10:25, it says for in Pelegs days the earth was divided. This could be the great division of the land. Some scientists believe the earth was one great land mass and they call it Pangea. Therefore, we came to have many languages and continents. I might add also that evolutionists have no explanation for the vast number of languages. Since the people were split into small groups, their genetic traits were intensified as they multiplied. That is why we now have different races.
One of Pelegs descendants was Abraham, who settled in the land of Canaan. There he begat Isaac, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jacob had Joseph, who was sold into slavery in Egypt in 1683 B.C. In 1670 B.C., he interpreted the dreams of the Pharaoh and was rewarded with the position of Prime Minister. When the great famine of the dream came true, Egypt had prepared by storing food. During the famine, Josephs brothers came for grain and eventually settled there, and over time formed their own nation. After Joseph died a new Pharaoh called King Tutankhams, came to rule who hadnt known Joseph. He feared the Israelites were greater than the Egyptians, and he reasoned that if the Egyptians went to war, the Israelites could join Egypts enemies and destroy him. So around 1550 B.C., he put the people of Canaan in bondage in Egypt to try and prevent them from multiplying. However, they continued to grow so he increased their labor and made them build more and more cities and structures for him, for over one hundred years.
The Greek historian Herodotus estimated that it took 100,000 men, twenty years to complete the Great Pyramid. So millions of Israelite slaves could have done a tremendous amount of work in one hundred years. The pyramids in Egypt, could have been built with that amount of laborers and in that amount of years. There is more than an adequate time frame for the pyramids to have been built. They had been enslaved for slightly over 100 years when Moses came and led about three million slaves out of Egypt in 1446 B.C. After the exodus, the people settled in the present-day land of Israel. This is where the Bible record begins to mesh with more modern or accepted historical records, and where my explanation concludes.
