Science has an overwhelming way of trying to find a reason for anything and everything that occurs on, under and over the surface of the earth. If a thing cannot be explained by science then it is either dubbed as superstition or coincidence. One such mystery churned out after years of inhabiting this earth is the Bermuda triangle. For years, it has baffled scientists worldwide and evaded any logical explanation for its existence other than perhaps as a symbol of Nature’s superiority over mankind. In the past 100 years over 1000 lives have been claimed by the Bermuda triangle.
In general, there are similar ethical beliefs amongst Christians due to Judaism being the only root of Christian ethics. In general Christian ethics is deontological and authoritarian and what is deemed right or wrong is based on belief in God. The ethics of Christianity is based on the holy bible, which is a library of books that expresses Christian faith. As the bible was written over a long period of time and includes many different teachings and morals, there is no overall biblical morality that can be chosen therefore different denominations choose different parts of the bible to support their beliefs. For instance in Genesis it says that ‘God breathed the breath of man into Adam’s nostrils’ and from this Roman Catholics can argue that as God has given life, only he can take it away so things such as abortion, euthanasia and murder are absolute wrongs.

Often I think what wonderful carvings never came to birth because he died. How many jokes are missing from the world, and how many homing pigeons untouched by his hands? He shaped the world. He did things to the world. The world was bankrupted of ten million fine actions the night he passed on.” This quote really spoke to me because of all the science fiction in this book Ray really brought out the realism in this quote.
On page 53 they tell of locusts coming: "At first, a fairly small swarm came...soon it covered half the sky, and the solid mass was not broken by tiny eyes of light like shining star dust. It was a tremendous sight". The Igbo actually look at the locusts as a source of food, and therefore a very innocent occurrence while in reality the locusts spread disease and can destroy their crops. I believe this a is a metaphor for the fact that the Igbo people allowed the white people to swarm over their society without retaliation when in the end the white people only led to their cultures eventual destruction. The destruction of their culture was the reason that Okonkwo killed himself,
Critics, especially the clergy from the animal hospitals and injection clinics had to inject vaccinations into someone else.

He named the supposed single land mass on Earth “Pangaea”, meaning All-earth. “Scientists still do not appear to understand sufficiently that all earth sciences must contribute evidence toward unveiling the state of our planet in earlier times, and that the truth of the matter can only be reached by combing all this evidence (Wegener, 1915)”. Continental drift was a theory that became the precursor to plate tectonics. Wegener held a Ph.D. in astronomy; he worked as a professor of meteorology. He had always been interested in geophysics, developing fields of meteorology, and climatology.

Navarro III ABTH – PS/Sophomore THE INERRANCY AND INFALLIBILITY OF THE BIBLE INTRODUCTION Followers of many religions believe that their own sacred texts are inerrant and infallible. This is particularly true within the conservative wings of the world's major religions. For example: * Fundamentalist and other Evangelical Protestants generally believe the entire Bible to be inerrant and infallible. Their belief in inerrancy is based, in part, on 2 Timothy 3:16 which states that the Scriptures are "God-breathed." * Muslims generally believe the Qur'an to be dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel, with words that came from Allah.
