How Does The Starving Time Of The Colonists Relate To The Hebrews Exodus - 477 words
Many things in history can be connected to one another. The Starving Time of the colonists and the Hebrews Exodus are two examples that relate so clearly. Their relation can be expressed through religious beliefs of the two or through the roles of the groups involved. The two specifically relate to each other through religious means. While the Hebrews were escaping the Egyptian army, they were cornered next to the Red Sea. At this point, God split the sea and allowed the Hebrew people to pass through. When the Egyptians reached the same point, the sea, again, converged upon itself. The flight of the Hebrews from the Egyptian control was known as the Exodus. This miraculous moment for the Heb ...

X Mexicos Exodus - 1,844 words
The problems created by waves of illegal immigrants leaving Mexico for the United States are very real. Every succeeding year sees an increase in the amount of those caught while trying to cross. One must ask why does such a wealthy developing country, with mineral resources and oil reserves, and a population of nearly 100 million people and a rich culture dating back to the 1500s, need to have economic and social difficulties that force such a large exodus every year? And why does the established government of Mexico seem incapable of solving this issue? Border agents called Federal Prevention Police have proved inadequate in stopping the flow of Mexicans going north. The 700 lawmen posted ...

Freedom And Slavery In The Book Of Exodus - 706 words
The book of Exodus is mainly about a liberator named Moses. Moses became one of the first liberators in the history of man. He was able to eventually free the slaves that were being used as slaves to build monumental building in the land of Egypt. I think that it is part of the human condition for people to want to be free. They want to have free will, as well as basic freedom and rights. This has always been the case throughout history. There has been slavery throughout history, and there have been people who thought that there should not be slavery. In the case of Moses it was his people, the Israelites who were being enslaved. It is part of the human condition to naturally assume that you ...

On the other side you have the pro-choice viewpoint, they believe that women have the right and freedom to decide whether and when to have children; they argue that pregnancy can result from contraceptive failure or other factors out of a womans control. When pregnancy does occur pro-choice individuals believe that the most moral decision possible must be determined according to each situation, and that in some cases greater injustice would result if abortion were not an option. If legal abortions were not available, some pro-choice supporters say, back-alley shops and do-it-yourself techniques, with their many health risks, as well as the birt ...

Tattoos - 963 words
Tattooing has been around much longer than most people think. Most people envision natives, with tribal tattoos, or sleazy parlors on the wrong side of the tracks filled with bikers and sailors, but that's not even close to where it started. Scientists found a man, "the ice man", said to be the oldest man ever found intact that dated to the prehistoric era, and he had tattoos. And there were also the Egyptians who were masterful tattooists. Usually only the upper class, priests and priestesses had tattoos. The women wore tattoos on their bellies to ensure fertility, and many of the priestesses were heavily tattooed, especially on the face. In the years of the Roman Empire tattooing was almos ...

Mccarthyism In The Crucible - 1,849 words
In The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, the madness of the Salem witch trials is explored in great detail. There is more to the play than the witch trials, though. The Crucible was composed during a time when a similar hysteria was sweeping through America. A virtually unkown senator by the name of Joseph McCarthy was propelled into infamy when while at a speaking engagement at thee Republican Womens Club of Wheeling, West Virginia he charged 205 persons in the U.S. State Department of being members of the Communist Party (Martine 8). Fear caused the American people to succumb to the preposterous charges brought forth by McCarthy displaying resemblances to that of the Salem community in 1 ...

A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings - 1,239 words
Sometimes it takes a different perspective for someone to see the reality of how things are handled, and Marquezs insights into the way "Mainstream Religion" has dragged God and Christianity through the mud to the point of non-recognition. This is illustrated by Pelayo and Elisendas not even seeing the wings in the beginning. My end goal here is to bring out this wonderful storys points and compare them to mainstream religions fallacies. The description of the weather when the Angel is found very vividly paints a picture of the mood in Pelayos house that day. "The world had been sad since Tuesday." Is the text, while Elisenda had been nursing a sick child that they feared might die. The sea ...

Homer Comparison And Contrast Of The Gods In Homers Epics With The God Of The Hebrews - 1,505 words
Tucker 1 Comparison and Contrast of the gods in Homers epics with the God of the Hebrews There are many similarities and differences between the Greek gods and the Hebrew God. These similarities and differences are revealed in the character and functionality of the gods. The revelation of similarities and differences can also be seen in mans relationship to his god or gods. Homer was instrumental in documenting the oral traditions of the Greek gods in his poetry. Moses, the Hebrew leader, is attributed with documenting what he witnessed from God in the Torah. The Greek and Hebrew belief systems were established for the purposes of explaining the world we live in, the phenomenon in nature, an ...

... man. This did not occur suddenly. The Romans conquered the Greeks and adopted much of the Greek mythology adding their own embellishments to the traditions. History reveals that the Romans also abandoned these adopted traditions for Christianity. Christianity takes the Hebrew tradition and adds a second chapter so to speak. The Hebrews do not accept this Christian theology but both share the same original traditions. The Hebrew God passed down to man standards for righteous living. The Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20 are the first written standards of living righteous passed from God to man. The remainder of the book of Exodus reveals numerous other standards that God required from m ...

Contridictions In Thomas Paines The Age Of Reason - 1,520 words
Thomas Paine wrote The Age of Reason in 1784. In it he included his views on the religions known throughout the world. For this, he was ridiculed and despised by many in society. Thomas Paine once said that a sermon he heard at the age of eight impressed him with the cruelty inherent in Christianity and made him a rebel forever. It is my opinion that, because of this, he lived the rest of his life never to actually study the Bible or Christianity. Because he was a rebel forever to the Christian religion, he was compelled to write of it in the 11th chapter of his book The Age of Reason, and quite inaccurately at that. I believe that Thomas Paine did not know enough of the Bible to speak again ...

John Smith And John Winthrop - 1,829 words
Life in New England in the early years of America was a chance for people to start over while including in this new way of life the philosophies they believed in. Leaders and prominent men like John Winthrop and John Smith saw America as a place to spread their ideas and make them into a functioning community. These men had different visions of what America was when they arrived there and of what it should become in time. Each of them wanted a type of change to occur in the New World. Winthrop was interested in forming a close community, serving God and avoiding selfishness. Smith saw America as a place to achieve wealth and become financially independent. Smith also emphasizes the importanc ...

Waverly Wray, the XO for Company D of the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment.

Louis Xiv - 527 words
16381715, king of France (16431715), son and successor of King Louis XIII. After his fathers death his mother, Anne of Austria, was regent for Louis, but the real power was wielded by Annes adviser, Cardinal Mazarin. Louis did not take over the government until Mazarins death (1661). By then France was economically exhausted by the Thirty Years War, by the Fronde, and by fiscal abuses. But the centralizing policies of Richelieu and Mazarin had prepared the ground for Louis, under whom absolute monarchy, based on the theory of divine right, reached its height. Louiss reign can be characterized by the remark attributed to him, Ltat, cest moi [I am the state]. Louis continued the nobilitys exem ...

What Is A Homesteader - 845 words
What is a homesteader? Well, a homesteader was a person like you or me. They were not cowboys like many people say. Homesteaders left their homes for a specific reason. These reasons are looked at on page 3. But no matter what their reason, the main thing is they were leaving their homes. They went on a very long and hard journey, and many did not make it to their destination. Homesteaders were people who left their homes. They were people like you or me, not cowboys like movies make them out to be. They could be bankers, farmers, or anyone else who wanted to leave their homes for the west.

Immigration Of The Eastern Dragons - 1,691 words
The latter half of the nineteenth century was an important period in Chinese American history. The story of their migration from their homeland to America to seek riches with their combined strength, knowledge and skills changed the face of Hawaii and the American West. Unfortunately, this dynamic period also saw the rise of racism and paranoia over Chinese competition for jobs. Chinese immigration to the United States in the mid-nineteenth century was only a part of a greater exodus from Southeastern China. By this period in China, the Manchu dynasty was on the decline. Corruption and oppression were on the rise. The taxes of land rights increased causing grief and discontent among the popu ...

Capital Punishment - 1,548 words
The issue of capital punishment has been an ongoing controversy for many centuries. Punishment by death has been in practice since its first appearance in Babylonian writings by Hammurabi dating to 2000 B.C. This form of punishment was later termed as "capital punishment." Abolitionists of capital punishment rely on the eighth amendment for support. Stating that the execution of an inmate regardless of its manner is cruel and unusual punishment. Abolitionists also believe that the punishment is unnecessary and is not cost effective for the American taxpayers. Finally, abolitionists depend on the moral issue of the death penalty to band capital punishment. Capital punishment advocates depend ...

Judaeo Christian - 1,208 words
Psalms, Genesis, and Exodus are three different portions of the bible that I feel serve two different purposes. There are many major differences in the way that Gods relationship with humankind is expressed in Psalms, and the way that it is expressed in Genesis and Exodus. In my paper I intend to go over the differences that I feel are the most important in understanding what Psalms, Genesis, and Exodus add to the bible. In Psalms, the relationship between God and humankind is not one where any physical or verbal interaction takes place. Interaction of the physical or verbal nature does not take place with God or anything that God creates in Psalms. God does not give the humans any rules, co ...

Sometimes I think the people involved in Web businesses have an unfair advantage at this game. After all, I knew that TheStreet.com (TSCM:Nasdaq) uses Exodus (EXDS:Nasdaq) as a host and Kana (KANA:Nasdaq) as a mail-serve technology. I know our tech crew uses an Accrue (ACRU:Nasdaq) database to generate page-view reports. But before you accuse me of having a leg up, I sold most of these stocks long ago. Maybe because I see the inherent flaws in all of them, or because one of the systems went down a bunch of times (they all do), I knew there were flies on these technologies. That jaded me.

While Greek myths and Biblical stories appear to be extremely different, the relationship between Athena and Telemachus (Odyssey) and that between God and Moses (Exodus) are similar in that both Telemachus and Moses were of the chosen family, were reluctant heroes, and were given specific instructions which required travel. Mainly, these two tales differ in that Athena and God chose different ways to speak to Telemachus and Moses, respectively. Both Athena and God had a chosen family in which they demeaned to be their most faithful followers, and therefore, they took the best care of such families. Athena chose Odysseus family. She favored Odysseus throughout his life by giving him several g ...
