Windows Evolution - 1,394 words
It wouldn't be fair to talk about the Windows Operating System without first looking at the origins of the company that developed it. William H. Gates III and Paul Allen founded Microsoft in 1975. They were both only 19 years old. In 1980 International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) chose Microsoft to write the operating system for the IBM PC personal computer, to be introduced the following year. As part of its contract with IBM, Microsoft was permitted to license the operating system to other companies. By 1984 Microsoft had licensed MS-DOS to 200 personal computer manufacturers, making MS-DOS the standard operating system for personal computers. In 1985 Microsoft released Windows, an ...

The Evolution Of Huckleberry Finn - 833 words
It was easier to recognize the traits that Twain was contemptuous of, since the entire book was supposed to satirize society. But there were certain traits that Twain admired, too. (3) Twain showed that he admired morality in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn personified through Huck. We have no real morals, but only artificial onesmorals created and preserved by the forced suppression of natural and healthy instinct.(4) Such instances include his not telling on Jim when he ran away, Huck returning the stolen money to the girls and Huck trying to escape from the King and the Duke after the burial. Twain chooses to have Huck evolve morally in the novel instead of giving him an outstanding se ...

Creationism Vs Evolution - 1,016 words
Evolution is not only improbable but clearly impossible. Extensive evidence against evolution is uncovered with every major scientific discovery. Every evolutionist "fact" can easily be rebuked by creationists. Twelve supposed hominoids have been discovered and presented as supporting evidence to evolution. While in all actuality nine of the twelve supposed hominids are actually extinct species of ape. While the remaining three are completely developed humans. Neanderthals were once considered pre-humans by evolutionists but recent studies have shown that the Neanderthals are completely developed humans (Homo sapiens) suffering from bone diseases caused by vitamin D deficiency. Many textbook ...

Greek Evolution And Its Decline - 755 words
Among all the peoples of the ancient world, one whose culture most clearly exemplified the spirit of Western society was the Greek or Hellenic. No other people had so strong a devotion to freedom or so firm a belief in the nobility of human achievement. The Greeks glorified humanity as the most important creation in the universe and refused to submit to the dictates of priests or despots. The Greek view of the world was predominantly secular and rationalistic; it exalted the spirit of free inquiry and preferred knowledge to faith. With only a limited cultural inheritance from the past upon which to build the Greeks produced intellectual and artistic monuments that have serve ever since as st ...

Creation V Evolution An Educational View - 1,049 words
Creation v. Evolution: An Educational View Many words have been written about the origins of things. Numerous ancient people believed that several powerful gods were responsible for creating human beings (Warburton 12). Another theory is parallel evolution, humans evolving simultaneously in several parts of the world (Allman, 54). The metaphysical assumptions and moral implications demonstrated in aspects of evolution theory have been a source of conflict for over one hundred years. "Pre-Darwinian" biologists based their science on theological assumptions. Science was rooted in religion; its purpose was to prove the existence of God, using as evidence the design and purpose in nature. Darwin ...

Human Evolution - 1,687 words
Human Evolution: the water theory. Elaine Morgan The crucial question about human evolution is why humans differ so strikingly from the African apesdespite their close genetic relationship. Most Darwinists would agree that such differences are usually attributable to differing environmental pressures; and hence that our ancestors at some stage probably occupied a significantly different habitat from the ancestor of the gorilla and the chimpanzee. For the last half-century it has been generally assumed that it was a much drier habitat. Alister Hardy's suggestion in 1960 that it might have been a much wetter one was intuitively and almost unanimously rejected. Primates were said to have an inn ...

These facts would not be predicted. either as part of the inheritance from early arboreal ancestors nor as adaptations to a life on the plains of Africa. One suggested explanation stressed the need of storing energy against possible food shortages, as in hibernating mammals. But the fat in humans is not seasonal, and it is hard to see why natural selection in the hominids would have given priority to food storage in a savanna habitat where speed seems to have been the prime requiremen ...

Evolution A Theory - 1,127 words
A basic argument used by creationists is that evolution is "only a theory and cannot be proven." This creationist argument is based on the false assumption that the only way to "prove" evolution is for someone to actually observe large evolutionary changes, for example birds evolving from dinosaurs. Since this can't be accomplished in a few lifetimes, creationists claim that "proving" evolution is impossible. This argument totally ignores the enormous amount of factual data that supports the position that present life forms are descended from primitive ancestors. Whether evolution is true or not depends on a careful and rational examination of the facts. A fact is something that is supported ...

The earth's human population and all present-day species of birds and land animals are all descendants of the Noah's ark survivors. There have been numerous aerial sightings and eyewitness accounts of persons who have actually seen the ark close up on the slopes Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. Constructing a wooden ship the size of the ark in times of antiquity would require an enormous expenditure of labor and materials.

With a few light slams, or the pass of a powerful magnet, it's very existence could be destroyed. Ancient times suggest not only survival of the fittest, but also survival of the smartest. Long ago the dinosaurs went extinct leaving many of the bigger brained mammals the dominant species. Then the larger brained man began using tools to overcome beasts. Through the advancement of technology man created artificial intelligence to help him easily solve complicated problems. Will this intelligence ever becom ...

... nd obscurity. Today, the name of Lamarck is associated merely with a discredited theory of heredity, the "inheritance of acquired traits." However, Charles Darwin, Lyell, Haeckel, and other early evolutionists acknowledged him as a great zoologist and as a forerunner of evolution. Would Lamark have agreed with Darwin? That is the question. Since Lamarck belived that creatures willed themselves to change, he would have felt that the moths felt the need to change. He may have supported natural selction but only in the case that the moths knew that they had to change to survive. Darwin belived that it was a natural process that took place over time, throught many generations. The fossil rec ...

Proof Of Evolution - 1,235 words
Evolution is a fairly simple idea. A broad definition of it is Species change over time. Evolutionary theory is supported by a huge body of evidence, including the fossil record and observation of organisms alive today. That is the reason it is embraced by most mainstream scientists. Theologists, whose arguments are based totally on faith, base their theories on fiction not proven fact. Faith, being belief that isn't based on evidence, is the principal vice of any religion. And who, looking at Northern Ireland or the Middle East, can be confident that faith is not exceedingly dangerous? One of the stories told to the young Muslim suicide bombers is that martyrdom is the quickest way to heave ...

The question then continually rose before my mind and would not be banished, is it credible that if God were now to make a revelation to the Hindoos, would he permit it to be connected with the belief in Vishnu, Siva, &c, as Christianity is connected to the Old Testament. This appeared to me utterly incredible. By further reflecting that the clearest evidence would be r ...

The Evolution Of Democracy - 426 words
Democracy is more a Utopian aspiration rather than a concrete description of any government. A common understanding of democracy, often applied to unworthy situations, is simply that the masses will govern themselves. This understanding was articulated by an Athenian statesman, Pericles, "Our Constitution is named a democracy, because it is in the hands not of the few, but of the many"(Cummings & Wise, 1971, p.20). This idea of democracy was extended through all of the arguments and testaments since its first recognition in Greece. A realistic and attainable view of democracy has more to do with brotherhood than politics. Once the realization that social issues cannot be kept from government ...

I remember the book saying, effective team structure might be as basic and simple as the communication required for the coordinating of activities.

The Evolution of Surfing to what it is Today. Primitive man used surfing in the fifth century AD to facilitate his fishing capabilities and to enhance his religious experiences: now with more time at their disposal, he uses it for different purposes: challenge and recreation, consequently, as society changed, surfing evolved. Early societies that centered on survival used surfing as a means of spiritual and physical survival. Societies that no longer, as a whole, concerned themselves with survival but have more time for recreation modified surfing to encourage it as a pleasure sport. As the society became more affluent, surrounded by more conveniences and technologies, people needed more cha ...
