In Gilgamesh, the event that led to the flood was simply the gods were annoyed of the people due to their noise. This shows how little the gods cared about the people. Also, this is more of a selfish act than an act of kindness. In Genesis, the reason for god replenishing the earth with a flood was because the people were immoral. This exposes that god was more worried about his people than the Sumerian gods.
They were Chrysalids. They would not give in to change. In John Wyndham’s novel, The Chrysalids, the Waknuks, the Sealanders, and the Fringes people all had different philosophies. The “stand-still” philosophies of the Waknuks, and the “move-on” philosophies of the Sealanders caused destruction of families, emotions, and even lives, leaving the Fringes people tied up inside of this tangled web. The Fringes people were known as deviations, those that were born anything other than what God created man to look like.
They lived totally different lifestyles than other countries did in their time. They had a different view of life and different beliefs that people today would think is weird. The Igbo have a religion, gender roles, and social structure unique to them. The Igbo religion is similar to Christianity that believes in one Supreme God called Chukwu. Chukwu means “the greater high god.” They believed that Chukwu created other minor gods which they prayed to.
Rachel Kay How accurate is it to say Frederick William IV was responsible for the failure of the Frankfurt Parliament? The Frankfurt Parliament was established to create freedom of press, German citizenship for all, fair taxation, equality of political rights and to create a unified Germany. However, countries like Austria greatly opposed it. Frederick William IV could be seen as responsible for the failure of the Frankfurt Parliament because he refused to accept any form of leadership and made it clear he distrusted the ‘gentlemen of Frankfurt’. However, many other factors played a role in the demise of the Parliament such as the fact that they were ill-organised, the lack of popular support and their inability to enforce decisions.
If the integrity of the Pope is lost then the Church gets a bad reputation. There was also anti-clericalism in Germany. Priests were given enormous amounts of power, as they were the only ones who could perform the sacraments, which guaranteed salvation. They were sometimes badly educated and occasionally even illiterate, which meant that they could not help their people spiritually. Simony, nepotism, pluralism,
However one fact remains, both individuals went against the church by defying both it's legitimacy and power as well as it’s power, but as aforementioned, for very different purposes, but in both cases resulted in earning the title of heretic. Another area in which contrast could be seen between the two “heretics” was what one could call the outcome of their heretic practices against the church. In the case of Martin Luther he was excommunicated and sought after, but even more significantly he never recanted for his work nor apologized for it or for his clear contradiction against the Church. While on the other hand, Galileo recanted all his works, and suffered only a sentence of house arrest as a result. Each man although both suffered the burden of the title of being a heretic, each earned the infamous title through different manners, and each suffered contrasting consequences as a result of what was regarded as heretical practices.
The Last Judgment caused a big dispute between Cardinal Carafa and Michelangelo. It became a big deal because Michelangelo was accused of immorality and vulgarism because it had naked people with their genitals in evidence. It was mostly made a big deal because the image is in a church of Christianity. So then a censorship campaign was organized by Carafa to remove the frescoes. The genitalia in the fresco were covered twenty-four years later.
Zoroastrianism was considered a dualistic religion as it had to do with the fight between Spenta Mainyu and Angra Mainyu. This is very similar to the concept of Christianity in the battle between God and Satan or good and evil. The basis of the dilemma between good and evil in Christianity and Zoroastrianism are similar as well. In Christianity the contention between God and Satan is supposed to have began after Lucifer was expelled from Heaven after disobeying God, leading to the fight between both. In Ahura Mazda, the contention between Spenta Mainyu and Angra Mainyu developed because Angra Mainyu wanted to have control over everything.
There Are No Such Things as Miracles The subject about miracles is strongly opinionated, there are a lot of assumptions, theories and happenings that can lead a person to believing whether miracles do or don’t happen. It all relies on the person’s belief and what they follow. A miracle is usually defined by ‘unexplainable events that break the laws of nature’. There are different types of miracles that most of us have probably heard about, for example, miracles of healing, exorcism, resurrection and nature. The belief in a miracle can come from either experiencing them or religious reasons and explanations.
There’s even a term coined “moralistic atheists”. These are the atheist who offended people think that they lack morality by giving up God. It seems Atheists find moral value within the natural world and beings that it possesses, and to respond to the vulnerabilities and capacities in others. The Pope attacked Marxism for opposing religion "as a kind of idealistic illusion to be fought with the most suitable means and methods according to circumstances of time and place, in order to eliminate it from society and from man's very heart." He said atheism" is the ideology of 'the death of man.'
