Do UFOs Exist? I have gathered many sources and have come to the conclusion that UFOs do exist. Sightings of unusual aerial phenomena date back to ancient times, but only after 1947, have UFOs been widely discussed because of publication world wide. Many things support this concept such as sightings, crop circles, encounters, and abductions. At least 90% of UFO sightings can be identified as conventional objects, Although time consuming investigations are necessary for such identification. The

Great Expectations: God's Law vs. Human Law In his book Great Expectations, the problematic nature of moral judgement and justice that stems from a conflict between God's law and human law is one of several topical themes that Charles Dickens addresses. This paradox regularly surfaces in his treatment of plot and setting, and is more subtlety illustrated in his use of character. To facilitate the reader's awareness of such a conflict, the narrator often uses language that has Christian connotat

James Joyces A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a novel of com
James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a novel of complex themes developed through frequent allusions to classical mythology. The myth of Daedalus and Icarus serves as a structuring element in the novel, uniting the central themes of individual rebellion and discovery, producing a work of literature that illuminates the motivations of an artist, and the development of his individual philosophy. James Joyce chose the name Stephen Dedalus to link his hero with the mythical Greek

While human societies have traditionally been organized according to complex, multi-membered class hierarchies, the demise of feudalism effected by the French Revolu

The Demon Within
The Demon Within
The Demon Within Othello is Shakespeare’s most complete tragedy. It is filled, in my opinion, with some of the strongest characters in all of Shakespeare’s plays. Othello, the play’s main character, is a cultured Moor, nevertheless insecure and hiding behind a facade of Venetian values and customs. He manages to assimilate into Western European society by denying his background and winning the hearts of the masses (and their daughters) with his tales of victory and strife. He is even appointed

Historians have attempted to discover universal constants of human nature, a bond that forms from continent to continent, human being to human being. Is there a constant quality that all peoples posses, and is reflected in all civilizations? Indeed, it is extremely difficult to make generalizations about centuries of modern history. To say that something

Every year at the end of October and the beginning of November an ancient tradition is still celebrated on the second of November.

This coincides with the Christian All Saints Day, and All Souls Day, November 1st and 2nd. People who have died in the past year are remembered, and their pictures are placed on family alt

Jesus taught through parables. Although parables could be hard for people to grasp, Jesus truly wanted them to understand his teachings. The Parable of The Sower (Luke 8:4-8) is a story that uses a unique approach to convey a strong message. Jesus spoke of a farmer who planted seeds. Some of these seeds scattered onto the ground, where birds would pick them up. Some seeds fell on rocky ground where they grew, but withered. Some seeds fell on thorns and grew with them, but the thorns eventually

In Shakespeare's Macbeth, the prophecies as foretold by the witches along with Macbeth's vaulting ambition help to entrap Macbeth in circumstances that makes him pursue his aspirations of becoming King. The darkness that is prevalent both in and around the witches sets a tone of evil. This evil, darkness, and ambition is the cause of Macbeth's ultimate destruction. Macbeth's character throughout the entirety of the drama changes from one extreme to the other. In the beginning of the drama Mac

However, in the perception of Okonkwo, the main character in Chinua Achebe's novel, Things Fall Apart, the measure of a man's success is based on two elements, material acquisition and growth, and physical prowess. This is ironic for Okonkwo since his people's typical idea of success seems to be constructed of a complex, strong spiritual culture, seemingly able
