“Then it dawned on me, Fear is not real. The only place fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future, it is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist, that is near insanity. Now do not misunderstand me, Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story, and that day, mine changed.”
That is a quote from Cypher (Will Smith) talking to his son Kitai (Jaden Smith) after their crash landing on the planet where the ship broke in two, leaving the only working beacon in the tail of the ship some 100 kilometers away from

Original Creation of the Earth (The Big Bang vs. Six-Day Creation)
TANITKA C. SMITH
December 3, 2012
The Big-Bang Theory, accepted widely by atheists and many scientists, simply says this: between 10 and 20 billion years ago a “bang” or explosion occurred from a single point in nothingness and with the scattering of googles of atoms, the earth came into being. An eruption of sorts occurred, haphazardly distributing the smallest particles of matter that miraculously adjoined themselves to create living, breathing organisms and every other object on the earth. Every word of the Bible is true. Every day, creation

As an alien who has landed on planet Earth, I would have to base the criteria on what my location is. The first thing is to observe the area that I am in as it may be different than other parts of the world. To some, religion consists of explanations of existence (or ultimate meaning) based on supernatural assumptions and including statements about the nature of the supernatural, which may specify methods or procedures for exchanging with the supernatural. In using the term supernatural, this is explained as somewhat mysterious forces or

Religious Life Of Planet Earth
Discuss the criteria you will employ to determine if people on earth are religious-in other words, what does religion look like?
People long to make sense of life; to find the key that will unlocks its mysteries and enable them to understand themselves and their place within the universe. Faced with their own fragility and death, they seek courage and comfort. Longing to develop and create, they seek inspiration. In this human quest for meaning, some take to philosophy, others to the creative arts, and others- in fact the majority of humankind-take to some form of religion. Almost every aspect of life can become the raw material out of which a religious

Life and humanity’s real essence is such a complex topic to cover. To try to do so in a book would imply a carefully thought over work and its extension would obviously not be short. There is a very large amount of aspects, each with a singular characteristic or particularity, that the person in question to develop the topic has to have a very good way of conveying the message in order for the public (in this case, the readers) to fully comprehend.

Dizolvarea URSS are o influență decisivă asupra țările est-europene, ca România, care renunță la sistemul comunist și se îndreaptă spre înfăptuirea reformelor democratice.

summary of the three (3) current competing theories of the origin of life on Earth: It arrived from an extraterrestrial source; it originated as a heterotroph; it originated as an autotroph.
Scientists to this day do not know how life came about on Earth. Yet, they continue to study many kinds of evidence and continue their research. At present there are three competing theories one how life on Earth came about.
Life arrived here from an extraterrestrial source. Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius popularized the idea of panspermia in the early nineties; the concept that life arose outside the Earth and that living things were transported to Earth to seed the planet with life

Radiocarbon Dating: Faith of Fact
Archeologist and other scientists have used many different dating methods to establish the age of the earth and things on the earth. One of the dating methods that has been used is radiocarbon dating, also known as Carbon-14 dating. Radiocarbon dating is a prejudiced method that can be used to prove the desired outcome. Like many other methods, radiocarbon dating is inconsistent and constantly changing. The root of a scientist’s belief must come from a more stable foundation. Although, Old-earth and young-earth scientists agree on carbon-14 half-life

Earth Day, Then and Now
Thirty Years ago, 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. Fifth Avenue in New York City was closed to automobiles as 100,000 people joined in concerts, lectures, and street theater. More than 2,000 colleges and universities across America paused their anti-war protests to rally instead against pollution and population growth. Even Congress recessed, acknowledging that the environment was now on a political par with motherhood. Since that first Earth Day, the celebrations have only gotten bigger, if somewhat less dramatic: The organizers of Earth Day 2000, to be held April 22, expect 500 million people around the globe to

Religion refers to a set of beliefs of people regarding the cause, the character and the purpose of the universe, containing moral codes that govern the behaviors of human beings. It can also be termed to as a set of human beliefs and practices that are agreed upon a group of people (Haught, 1990). There are many religions in planet earth such as Christian religion, Islam religion, Buddhism and Hinduism. All these religions are different in terms of what they believe and practice. These disparities cause conflicts among the religions as each religion believes that it is the best.

The Earth is also like a greenhouse. During the day Earth’s surface warms up in the sunlight. At night, the surface cool, releasing the heat back into the air. But some of the heat is trapped by gas like carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. These gases, called greenhouse gases, work like the glass walls and the roof and keep the earth warm. This is global warming and it is making the earth dangerous planet.
Unfortunately, we are making the earth too hot. We are using oil, gas and coal for running cars, buses, trains, planes, power stations and so on. These fuels have carbon in them. This carbon and other gases trap the heat in the atmosphere and do not allow the earth to cool

Human activities occurring every day have had colossal damage to our planet Earth from the past, and these activities are perpetual. The infinity aspect of these perverse human doings implies continuous damage to the Earth. These activities include air pollution as a result of industrial emissions, water pollution caused by industrial waste products, noise pollution, and soil pollution. These damages yield adverse effects such as global warming, climate change, and loss of marine life among many aggravating effects of environmental damage.

concept of reality (Gregory and Giancola 382). The concept of reality focuses on the biblical fact that women were the last people to come to earth. Based on this assertion, eco-feminist argues that it is prudent for women to discover their reality on earth. This is because of the social devastation created by males based on religion. For instance, males in the society perceive religion as a concept of their own consciousness because of the biblical record that males came on earth before females.

Uniformitariasm holds to the belief that certain processes that are happening today, have happened at the same rate in the past.(1) This has a profound impact on the dating of the Earth. Catastrophists on the other hand believe that there were processes in the past that occurred at rates scales, and intensities greater than possible today. The Catastrophists belief that there was a

Definition : Small pieces of space debris — usually parts of comets or asteroids — that are on a collision course with the Earth are called meteoroids. They become meteors when they enter the Earth's atmosphere. Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, but if they survive the frictional heating and strike the surface of the Earth they are called meteorites.

The world contains seven continents which are all sub-divided up into smaller pieces and those are divided further and so on. Each of these places has its own weather which changes daily and also has its own climate; which is a more permanent season of weather that the region experiences. For years the climate for many places has begun to change and become warmer affecting anything that lives in the area. Some organisms have become endangered and some have died because they haven’t been able to adapt as fast as the rate of climate change. Many believe this to be what’s known as “Global Warming” and others argue that it’s just a coincidence that the earth is on a cycle and it’s at

Ray Bradbury’s Dark They Were and Golden Eyed is about Harry Bittering and his family’s attempt to escape war on earth by building a colony on Mars. This suspense tale shows the effects of the Bittering’s odd new surroundings on Mars. Bradbury’s description of Mars and the Bittering family’s reactions to it give warning that something could go wrong. The atmosphere is one of foreboding and apprehension. Slowly, the circumstances tighten around Harry. The author uses character and plot to express the theme that fear creates resistance to change.

No one ever really stops to look into the history of the origin of time and how it was determined to be divided upon.

Although the number of detected extra-solar planets continues to grow at a steady rate, the frequency is still fairly low. Only a few percent of the stars surveyed so far are known to have planets. Presumably this fraction will continue to rise as search techniques improve and we extend the detections to smaller planets and wider orbits.

My view is that creationism is not a science, it is a belief. Because it is a belief it has no place being taught as a science, and hence does not belong in a science classroom. I will not only show that creationism is wrong, but also that evolution is the only reasonable explanation for the development of life.
There is no physical or scientific evidence that supports the beliefs of creationism, while there is a vast amount of evidence from a wide range of sciences that together point to the evolution over time of life on Earth. The many disciplines of science that have

One well known philosophical dilemma, that causes much of humanity significant grief and frustration towards religious beliefs, is the problem of evil. John Hick explains in his essay, “The Problem of Evil”, that this ‘crisis’ so to speak is based on three characteristics that Christians claim God has. Christians believe that God has infinite knowledge, power and love. The question that is then raised is: Why is life on earth filled with vast amounts of suffering, pain and evil if God has never-ending abilities to embrace those three characteristics?
John Hick provides two answers to this question. He believes that evil is essential to soul making. Hick explains that evil

The Ancient Greeks developed astronomy, which they treated as a branch of mathematics, to a highly sophisticated level. The first geometrical, three-dimensional models to explain the apparent motion of the planets were developed in the 4th century BC by Eudoxus of Cnidus and Callippus of Cyzicus. Their models were based on nested homocentric spheres centered upon the Earth. Their younger contemporary Heraclides Ponticus proposed that the Earth rotates around its axis.

As Children of God we have a duty to help the environment and restore all that God has created. In Genesis 2:15, the Bibles states that, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” We were put on the Earth that God has created to take care of everything He has placed on it in Adams place. We are to do so in His image. Some would argue that humans are more important and we need to worry about our existent before the environment, but that is not the case. By cutting down on pollution

With a picture in the old testament of a God that many would visit to atone for sins now has stepped out of the temple and found rest inside of us.

God and nothing or no one else. Thus, the entire history, present and future of the world everything that happens in our world happens either because He directly causes it, or he consciously allows. Nothing enters into history or even exists outside history that doesn't come under God's complete control. In this paper I will define God’s sovereignty, providing evidence and examples to support this truth. I will demonstrate the sovereignty of God applies in the world today just as it did in the Old Testament “Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places (Psalms 135:6).

The fossil of the ancient reptile mesosaurus was only found in South America and southern Africa. The mesosaurus is a freshwater reptile roughly one meter long and couldn’t have swum in the ocean due to it being a freshwater reptile. Wegener also believed

What is global warming?
Global warming is when the earth heats up (the temperature rises). It happens when greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane) trap heat and light from the sun in the earth’s atmosphere, which increases the temperature. This hurts many people, animals, and plants. Many cannot take the change, so they die.
What is the greenhouse effect?
The greenhouse effect is when the temperature rises because the sun’s heat and light is trapped in the earth’s atmosphere. This is like when heat is trapped in a car. On a very hot day, the car gets hotter when it is out in the parking lot. This is because the heat and light from the sun
