Christianity Christianity is an Abrahamic religion that began as a Jewish sect in the mid-1st century.[9][10] Originating in the Levant region of the Middle East, it quickly spread to Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt. It grew in size and influence over a few centuries, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire, replacing other forms of religion practiced under Roman rule.[11] During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, and adherents were gained in the Middle East, North Africa, Ethiopia and parts of India.[12][13] Following the Age of Discovery, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization.[14][15][16] Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.[17][18][19][20][21] Beliefs Creeds Its main points include: Ten Commandments These are quotes from Deuteronomy 6:4 and Leviticus 19:18.

The Amazing Zeppelin Bend and Grapple Hitch knots Skytopia > Articles > The Amazing Zeppelin Bend and Grapple Hitch (article created 05/11/2006) Ever wanted to yank a bad tooth out, or extend a bungee rope so you can dangle further down a cliff face? How about escaping from the top floor of a high security prison by tying bed sheets together? Well if you answered an affirmative "yes" to one or more of the above, then you'll want to use some kind of a knot. "Which one?" There are hundreds or perhaps thousands of documented knots. "How many do I need to know for 99% of purposes?" Oh perhaps three or four for the average person (one or two which you already know). "Okay what's the deal with this site?" Well for starters, you'll learn how to tie just two knots, one of which is a 'hitch' I discovered (named "Grapple Hitch") and is probably better than MOST ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE, and the other is called - the Zeppelin Bend, which is almost without a doubt the best way to tie two ropes or rope ends together there is. Not a lot! Yessum boss!
