Martha Ballard We as a society are fortunate. We have the luxury of advanced technology to include: computers, telephones, video teleconferencing equipment, cellular phones, beepers, and hospitals with the latest gadgets and gizmos. Our technology is available only because of documented historical accounts. Our idea of work is having to get in our vehicles and driving to our destination and sometimes sitting behind a desk all day to push paper; the worst any of us suffers is a traffic jam here

First Stand Many issues plague the world today. Questions arrive about how people should live, who should control the most power, and many other questions that Americans have spent all their lives trying to answer. This isn't an essay where I try to answer all those questions, but how I stand on certain issues like war, wealth, social status, education and finally technology. All those issues get even larger where even more questions arise. Those 3 sections are Political, Social, and Economical

God Since the time of Epicurus to the present, many people have had certain beliefs in myths and in the Gods. Epicurus presents his philosophy pertaining to these convictions. In his reasoning, he derives a definition of mythology and of the Gods contradicting to much of popular thought. Many people depend on mythology when they need an explanation for a phenomenon. Epicurus rationalizes that mythology is unchangeable and dogmatic, for ?when one accepts one theory and rejects another which is e

Such a question may at first seem unanswerable because there are so many different kinds of unpleasant situations into which we humans can get ourselves. In one word, however, the real culprit is probably ignorance.

Philosophy Originated From The Greek Language. It Is Made Up Of Two Wo
Philosophy originated from the Greek language. It is made up of two words: philein which means to love and sophia which means wisdom. There are three fundamental questions in the field of philosophy which are referred to as the Existential Concerns. What can I know?, What ought I to do?, What is the meaning of life and my place in the universe? These complex questions are discussed in the basic areas of philosophy. Epistemology is the theory of knowledge. The major question in this ar

I always knew he loved me. He never let me forget it either. I remember the first time we met. It was in high school, I was about 14 years old, and he was a senior. I was practicing with the cheerleading squad after school when I saw him. He jumped from a window about five feet above the ground. I think he did it t

Missionary Work Of Early Missionaries Like Paul, Barnabas, And Timothy
Missionary work of early missionaries like Paul, Barnabas, and Timothy, was different from the missionary work of missionaries in the Dark Ages, such as Patrick and Boniface. These differences arose because of the differences in political, religious, and cultural environments. It made the missionaries different by making them adapt to the customs and environment of the area. One main area of difference was the way the gospel was preached. The early missionaries worked in different political, re

I hope to answer this question, the process of cloning, the positive and negative aspects, ethical aspects, and an authors view of cloning all the way back from the 1940's. The basics however, are the first part. The process of cloning is invo

In Order To Elaborate On The Subject Of Religion We Must Look Deeply I
In order to elaborate on the subject of religion we must look deeply into its origin and true meaning. Where do we get all laws and standards of living? Religion is a very broad and difficult thing to decode. There are so many different beliefs and laws that cultures abide by, startrting at any one subject would lead me right back to the question, where does our worship derive from?

Inner states of being manifested outwardly in The Scarlet Letter People often times try to cover up their interior in order to hide something that is not to that persons liking. However, this inward state of being always winds up working its way to a persons exterior, and thus, letting everyone know of their respective sins. This is a recurring theme in Nathaniel Hawthorne's, The Scarlet Letter. Names like Chillingworth and Dimmesdale let the reader know how, in reality, these characters are, b

Many Americans wanted to bring about an end to it but were unable to come up with a workable plan. Slavery in America stems well back to when the new wor

We listened only to classical music, which we hated probably because it was Dad. We did not like him too much, he was different. I had no idea until after he was murdered that he was gay.
