The Travels Of Scarmentado by Voltaire I WAS born in Candia, in the year 1600. My father was governor of the city; and I remember that a poet of middling parts, and of a most unmusical ear, whose name was Iro, composed some verses in my praise, in which he made me to descend from Minos in a direct line; but my father being afterwards disgraced, he wrote some other verses, in which he derived my pedigree from no nobler an origin than the amours of Pasiphae and her gallant. This Iro was a most mischievous rogue, and one of the most troublesome fellows in the island. My father sent me at fifteen years of age to prosecute my studies at Rome, There I arrived in full hopes of learning all kinds of truth; for I had hitherto been taught quite the reverse, according to the custom of this lower world from China to the Alps. Monsignor Profondo, to whom I was recommended, was a man of a very singular character, and one of the most terrible scholars in the world.

Other Canaanite languages are Phoenician, Ammonite, Moabite, and Edomite. Etymology[edit]

- Jerusalem Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem, Israel (Enlarge) Jerusalem, by virtue of the number and diversity of people who have held it sacred, may be considered the most holy city in the world. To the Jewish people it is Ir Ha-Kodesh (the Holy City), the Biblical Zion, the City of David, the site of Solomon's Temple, and the eternal capital of the Israelite nation.

鈥極rigin of Speeches鈥 says Edenic language is programmed in our brains October 24, 2009 by arking I recently finished reading The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language, a fascinating book by Edenics scholar Isaac E. Mozeson. Edenics is a linguistics project undertaken to study the original human mother tongue called Edenic, the language given to Adam in the garden of Eden. What did the Knights Templar Do The Knights Templar were created by the pope to escort and protect "tourists" going to the Holy Land, and to fight Muslims there. There were originally only a handful, but there were thousands by the time they were disbanded in the 1300's. They were the first bankers. A person could deposit money at one Templar institution, receive a voucher, and turn it in at any other Templar institution.

Memories of the East Village Art Scene In a strictly hedonistic way, Eileen鈥檚 Reno Bar was integral to the East Village community. A narrow pocket of surrealism on Second Avenue between 11th and 12th, its ceiling surfaced in plastic jade plant鈥攂rown plastic jade plant鈥擡ileen鈥檚 had its flaccid nights of dead-room tone. But most evenings brought a steady influx of pre-op transsexuals, clueless walk-ins, bisexual drug dealers, garrulous drunks with a schizophrenic flair, Ricardo Montalban types from Europe lusting after chicks with dicks, and a few black-humored fags like myself, who much preferred the Reno Bar鈥檚 nightly Halloween party to clocking the aging process in some drippy gay bar. Eileen鈥檚 had the carnal whoop-de-do of a fetish convention. It was also full of crack whores working the track on 11th Street. One Eileen鈥檚 habitu茅 named Joel wore a walrusy mustache and the woebegone, sagging face of the chronically defeated.

Polygamy in the Bible 鈥 Rick Beckman When you think of polygamy, what do you think of? The Mormons? Islam or Muhammad? Maybe you think of Big Love? If you are a Christian, though, I want to give you something else to think of when the subject of polygamy comes up. You see, our minds shouldn鈥檛 be instinctively drawn to the world, its false faiths, and its entertainment, when there are loftier subjects to focus on. A Timeline of World Civilizations for Mythology Mythology seeks to explain the world and thus reflects the culture, events, and history of the societies that create the stories handed down as myths. Egypt鈥檚 Nile River and its cycle of overflowing its banks leaving fertile ground as it receded became the basis for Egyptian religion that demanded that the people help the gods prevent anything from interfering with the cycle. Myths form around the founding of cities, including Athens and Rome 鈥 about 10,000 to 2,500 years ago, respectively 鈥 and the founding of civilizations, including the creation myths passed down in virtually every culture. Chinese and Native American myths account for astrological occurrences as well as for more earth-bound events such as the Toltec invasion of the Mexican city of Teotihuacan in 900 CE.
