Many people have different ideas on how are on the earth and how it all came about. The Christians believe God created all things. From day one God created the heavens the earth, the human race, marriage, salvation, faith, government and the covenant. I believe all of this is true and practice the Christian faith. I was raised in this faith and all of my family before me was raised in the same faith.
My view on same sex marriage is different from the worldview of it today. I was taught that people who like the same sex is wrong and they were going to hell. I was taught the reason god destroyed Earth the first time was due to moral values being ignored and men laying with men. God created marriage one man and one woman to go out and reproduce. I have not yet to guess what would have happened to the human race if God wanted to have same sex marriage there would be no human race left. I am very sure that God is very upset with our country which is supposed to be one under and passing laws to marry the same sex is wrong. I support the one man one woman marriage completely as does my family.
Since I was a small child I have been taught about Gods love, grace, rules, and wrath. God taught us how to conduct our weeks, work six days a week and take the seventh day for rest. God also made twenty four hours in each day to complete our tasks. The Seventh Day Adventist church has church on Saturday which they state is the seventh day our culture has many churches that worship very differently. Many ways of Religion has caused many problems throughout our time. Many civilizations and other people in our own society believe in evolution that we are not created by god. First what does evolution mean? Evolution is the change of inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. This is all man, plants, animals, and all other living things. Human…...

...David Brooks, who is the author of text 1, is undoubtedly of the opinion that wealth won’t make you happy. He actually describes anyone who would accept a severe personal blow in exchange for professional gain is: “…absolutely crazy.” He argues that if you are engaged in a happy marriage, then professional setbacks are much easier to endure whilst being reasonably happy, but no matter how many career triumphs you attain they will never feel satisfactory if you are in an unhappy marriage. He describes the relation between happiness and income as complicated, as there in poor nations who grow to become middle-class nations is an increase in overall happiness but with further economic ascent the effect on general happiness is greatly diminished, if it even exists. He bases this in research conducted by the Brookings Institute. It states that USA has become much richer over the past 50 years and has become a very unequal country but neither this growth in overall wealth nor the vast differentiation in income social classes in-between has had an effect on the general happiness of the country. Text 2 takes quite a different approach, looking at which way of spending your money gives most happiness. Stephanie Rosenbloom, the author of the text, emphasizes that using your money on experiences e.g. vacations or cooking-classes will produce a longer lasting happiness than the purchasing of materialistic things. The main reason for this being that experiences nearly always engages......

...of the Four David Artists Through out the years there were many great artists who created many great works of art, but only four Italian artists really stick out for creating the same piece all with different points of views. These artists were Donatello, Verrocchio, Michelangelo, and Bernini, all of who created a David sculpture. Each one very unique and different. These four artists all stand out in there own individual ways. David who was supposed to be the second king of Israel, killed Goliath with just a sling and a single stone. The story of David and Goliath goes something like this, according to the bible in 1 Samuel 17. “The Philistine army gathered for war against the Israelites. The two armies faced each other on opposite sides of a valley. A Philistine giant named Goliath, would come out in armor and challenge the Israelites to war. The King of Israel who at that time was Saul, and his whole army were scared of Goliath. David who was the youngest son of Jesse, was sent to battle for one simple task, to bring his father back news of his brothers. While there, David heard Goliath shouting and saw the fear that had began to show in the men of Israel. David volunteered himself to fight Goliath, it took sometime for Saul to agree, but finally he gave in. Dressed in his simple tunic, carrying only his staff, slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David approached Goliath. The giant cursed at him, making horrible threats and insults. David said to......

David Foster

...New York Times five years ago: “David Foster Wallace, whose prodigiously observant, exuberantly plotted, grammatically and etymologically challenging, philosophically probing and culturally hyper-contemporary novels, stories and essays made him an heir to modern virtuosos like Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo, an experimental contemporary of William T. Vollmann, Mark Leyner and Nicholson Baker and a clear influence on younger tour-de-force stylists like Dave Eggers and Jonathan Safran Foer, died on Friday at his home in Claremont, Calif. He was 46.” It’s not your conventional obituary. No, it has a literary style befitting the writer we lost on September 12, 2008. And five years after DFW’s death, we might want to pause and revisit his many stories and essays still available on the web. To mark this mournful occasion, we’ve updated and expanded our list, 30 Free Essays & Stories by David Foster Wallace on the Web, which features some timely and memorable pieces – “9/11: The View From the Midwest,” “Consider the Lobster,” and Federer as Religious Experience,” just to name just a few.

Neil and David

...Section A Barbour Brown有限公司是一个工程顾问公司,由David Barbour和Neil Brown在14年前建立,位于一个大片农村地区中的主要城镇。最初,该公司仅仅专注于国内的工程项目,例如道路和下水道的铺设,由于当时的私人房屋建设迅速发展。   80年代,Neil和David都为一家在那个城镇中有办事处的大公司(Floyd and Fleming有限公司)工作.David做过分支经理,而Neil,一个有企业家精神的年轻人,参与了结构发展的部分,之后在中东地区工作了两年。1989年Floyd和Fleming公司决定撤除分支办事处并集中经营他们在城市里的工作。   Neil最近从中东地区工作归来,享受了做自己老板的自由和灵活。他和David讨论了合伙继续在那个小镇经营工程咨询服务的可能性。David有在当地工作的经验,他意识到小镇里有足够的小型工程,来维持公司运营。他还有足够的储蓄和资产,可以用于管理买断。Neil同样有国外工作所得的储蓄。有了这些资源,这两个人有足够的资本来买下当时Floyd和Fleming公司的办公室。他们制订了一项经营计划来保证额外用于买断的资金。用来支持这项创业的筹资,从银行贷款和苏格兰发展机构的拨款中获得。以五年内不得在中央地带接受和执行工作为条件,管理买断被同意了。   1990年新的Barbour和Brown工程有限公司开张了。公司团队包括David, Neil和其它两位合格的工程师组成:Jack,一个志存高远的毕业生;James一个30岁却还未获得资格认证的工程师。另外还有两个合格的技师和一个学徒技师   Section B 在接下来的14年中公司稳定地发展,主要集中于核心的国内工程业务。公司通过从事当地的工作来发展,由于Neil和Brown坚信内部投资的原则,他们总是支持当地其它公司的发展。为此他们让当地的承办人,保险经纪人和会计来给他们提供服务。实际上,只要可能,他们推荐John Colbert工程承包公司来从事建设工作已经成了一条不成文的规定。Neil Brown和John Colbert曾经是大学期间的校友并且一直是好朋友。可以依赖John的公司提供的服务,成为了获取合同的一个重要优势,因为这不仅在设计阶段,也在建设阶段增加了该公司保证高质量服务的能力。   该公司的主要目的是提供高质量的服务,因此员工具备最先进的技术尤为重要。 这使得该公司可以尽可能高效地提供高规格设计。员工被激励去升级他们的技能,当他们获取资格认证的时候,会发给奖金。当地的学院被用来培训那些学徒,但是由于培训需求的缺乏,费用正在提高。David想要继续利用那所学院,不仅因为它距离较近,也因为它和工程部门的首脑关系友好。由于这层关系,他不想用其它的学院。他同样很高兴能容易地看到学徒的进步。Neil,另一方面,感觉培训如此昂贵并且有课程不起作用的危险,认为他们应该寻求在中央地带的其它学院。他还认为那些年轻的学徒可能会喜欢去城里进修的机会,这还有可能给予他们鼓励。   2004年公司雇佣了另外两个工程师,四个技师和4个学徒。一个新的城镇旁路的合同和住房建设的持续增加似的公司可以扩大规模。为了支持工程人员,又雇佣了一个员工监督来处理接待,记账和薪水发放的事务。   Section......

...Print Email Download Reference This Send to Kindle Reddit This    [pic] The Life Of King David Religion Essay David was the second king of Israel and a descendant of Abraham. He was the youngest of eight brothers in his family (1Samuel 17:22) and was growing up as a shepherd (Bible Dictionary). He was the father of the well known king Solomon. In New Testament Jesus called as son of David. I am going to tell about David’s life before he became a king; a description of his way of becoming a king of Israel. As a king he was righteous and brave. However, as far as I am concerned, his life before becoming a king was also interesting to know. I have chosen to concentrate particularly on this part of his life, because at that point he seemed to be an ordinary person like an average shepherd, but his great faith and believe in God gave him such a strength and bravery, that he managed to become a famous hero and king in the Biblical story of Israel. The story of David begins in the Bible from the 16th chapter of 1st Samuel. David was the youngest son of Jesse, who was son of Obed. Also here we get information about his anointment by Samuel, who was a prophet before and had set Saul on throne for the United Kingdom. After that, David faced the first trial which defined his future. It was the war with Philistine. Philistines had one unbeatable warrior Goliath whom they sent to fight with any Israelite warrior. The end of their battle would define the winner. Goliath was......

...Ren November 26, 2012 David The iconic sculptures of David created by both Italian artists, Michelangelo of the High Renaissance and Donatello of the Early Renaissance are similar yet different in several ways. As with most art created during these time periods, the sculptures tell the Bible story from the Old Testament about David and Goliath. In this story, David, an Israelite, battled Goliath, a Philistine, and killed him with a simple slingshot and then David’s own sword allowing for David to claim a victory for the Israelites. The similarities start with the pose. Both the artists show David in a similar pose. Both statues depict David as a warrior. Both figures are standing and are predominately nude. Both sculptures are positioned in a contrapposto pose. Both statues show some form of a soldier’s tools such as the helmet, boots, and sword in Donatello’s piece, and the stones from the sling shot in Michelangelo’s piece. Both likenesses of David depict the concept of humanism in that they both display within their likenesses a sense of “self-contained, even heroic individualism (Sayre, 2012) that perfectly captures the humanist spirit. It is from this point on the sculptures begin to have stark contrasts. Let’s focus first on the physical differences. The bronze David created by Donatello is that of a younger msn or teen age boy. It is definitely more feminine looking or waifish than that of Michelangelo’s work. His statue of David is much more......

Re Essay on Religions

...RE: Poverty "Poverty is defined relative to the standards of living in a society at a specific time. People live in poverty when they are denied an income sufficient for their material needs and when these circumstances exclude them from taking part in activities which are an accepted part of daily life in that society." Scottish Poverty Information Unit. The most commonly used way to measure poverty is based on incomes. A person is considered poor if his or her income level falls below some minimum level necessary to meet basic needs. This minimum level is usually called the "poverty line". What is necessary to satisfy basic needs varies across time and societies. Therefore, poverty lines vary in time and place, and each country uses lines which are appropriate to its level of development, societal norms and values." The World Bank Organisations. These are just a few of the different definitions of poverty from different views. The general definition is ‘the state of being extremely poor’ and/or ‘the state of being inferior in quality or insufficient in amount’. Absolute poverty is defined as the lack of sufficient resources with which to meet basic needs. Relative poverty defines income or resources in relation to the average. At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day. More than 80 percent of the world’s population lives in countries where income differentials are widening. The poorest 40 percent of the world’s population accounts for 5 percent of global......

Essay by David Sedaris ’’Me Talk Pretty One Day’’

...Essay by David Sedaris ’’Me Talk Pretty One Day’’ ’’Me Talk Pretty One Day’’ is an essay written by David Sedaris in 2005. The essay is about David Sedaris himself and his own experiences to learn a foreign language, French. He has some struggles learning it even though Sedaris has taken some French lessons in New York before moving to Paris. But being 41 years old and start all over in school again can be a challenge, especially if you have a strict teacher. Before David Sedaris decided to move to Paris, France, he took a French course in New York, where he lived so that he would not be an absolute beginner when attending the French class in Paris. The first day of school, Sedaris seems excited and it all seems, as he writes, nerve-racking. He already knows that he is expected to perform, which put a definite pressure on him with the French teaching system, ‘’That’s the way they do it here – everyone into the language pool, sink or swim’’. He also does not feel as confident with the French language as the other students, but he realizes that his nervousness is the least of his problems. The teacher of his French course is a very intimidating woman, who seems to have no interest in the students’ well being. She is picking on the students and making fun of their answers, because of their broken French. Their teacher seems very violent, ‘’We soon learned to dodge chalk and protect our heads and stomachs whenever she approached us with a question’’. She does not hit......

Summary of David Bereby's Essay 'It Takes a Tribe"

...Summary of ‘It Takes A Tribe’ by ‘David Berreby’ David Berreby is a research writer, who has deeply observed and analyzed the human nature of association, in his prose ”It Takes A Tribe”. Berreby claims, through his prose, that humans automatically and subconsciously, want and try to become a part of something larger than them (9). Prof. Mahzarin R. Banaji, who led a study about ‘subconscious tribal beliefs’, argues that people act accordingly once divided into groups, even if they know that the divisions are arbitrary and futile (‘It Takes A Tribe’ 10). Many of the surveys and examples presented in Berreby’s article are based on the college life of students. Berreby demonstrates that a college campus breeds competitive spirit and therefore tribalism (9). Berreby also writes that, “A sense of ‘us’ brings with it a sense of ‘them’”. “We may come to believe, that an essential trait separates us from the rest of humanity (them)”, he adds. A person relating to a particular tribe usually begins to dissociate with another tribe (9). Prof. Robert M. Saplosky’s e-mail interview declares, in detail, how the faculty and students of Stanford University are affiliated with layers of social groups, persisting from the university notch right till their chosen majors. They are familiar with their rival groups at each level (‘It takes A tribe’ 9). The embarrassment or discomfort faced to enter a group is directly proportional to the value a member has for that group (Berreby 11). Berreby......
