A list of the six parts of Aristotle's Greek tragedy "Aristotle's Tragic Plot Structure"—click to view a larger version Hamartia is first described in the subject of literary criticism by Aristotle in his Poetics.
Its mass is estimated to be 6,,,, tons. The distance from the earth to the moon ismiles; while the distance to the sun is 93, miles. The sun has a diameter ofmiles, and a masstimes that of the earth. Distances now become so great that we will find it so cumbersome to use the measure of a mile that it is necessary to construct a more practical unit which is called a light year.
Light travels at the speed ofmiles per second generally referred to as m. Page 42 The sun is eight light minutes away. A light year, then, means the distance light will travel in one year, or 5,, miles. Our solar system has a diameter of light minutes; but the galaxy of which it is a very small part has a diameter oflight years!
If in each of these thousand million galaxies there are, as astronomers believe,million stars, then in the entire universe there are some million million million ,,, stars. On a clear night as many as 2, stars can be seen with the naked eye by a person standing at one spot. The total number of stars visible in the entire sky is estimated at about 6, By the one-inch telescope, somestars can be observed.
With the one-hundred-inch telescope about 1,, stars. However, with the two-hundred-inch telescope nearly one billion galaxies are brought within observation, which includes objects as far away as two billion light years.
Very recently the frontiers of space have been pushed even farther back by Dr. He has found five quasars, that is, quasi-stellar radio noise sources that are farther from the earth than any other known object.
The most distant of these five quasars is labeled 3C Therefore, it was created such that the light from the stars would shine for us to see them, as if He wanted us to have a peak into His majesty, creative mind, and power. There is no reason to believe that the universe is expanding since it is infinite.
Only our ability to observe it is expanding. Thus I believe in a "young earth" and young universe, created with inherent age. The concept of the age of our earth, as well as the age of the universe, has in our century undergone as great changes as conceptions of the size of this universe.
Hardly more than forty years ago, the age of our earth was estimated to be about one hundred million years. Thirty years ago this figure was extended from to million years.
It is now generally acknowledged that this earth is from 4. Within this very decade it was generally thought that life originated on the earth at least two billion years ago.
In an international research team at the University of California, in Berkeley, found life-produced molecules in rocks from the Soudan formation of Minnesota that are estimated to be 4 billion years old.
The age of the universe has been variously estimated. In Sandage calculated it to be somewhere between thirteen to twenty billion years. There is nothing in the initial accounts of creation in the Bible, nor in the later numerous references to this great theme, that can be interpreted as in direct contradiction to such estimates of enormous time periods.
In fact, poetic language as it is, even the Hebrews themselves would seem to have considered the earth to have a great age, when they spoke of "the everlasting hills" Gen. Note also the phrase "the ancient mountains" in the Blessing of Moses Deut.
There is no need in a work such as this to enter into the complicated subject of how this universe of ours came into existence. The theories held by different competent authorities testify to the inability of contemporary scientists to agree on any one theory attempting to explain the origin of this vast universe.
Smart, the Regius Professor of Astronomy in the University of Glasgow, in his authoritative work, The Origin of the Earth, enumerates the following different theories, held with equal convictions by astronomers Page 44 and physicists today.
And then he is forced to conclude that "all the theories proposed to date as to the mechanism by which the Solar System has come into being failed to carry conviction.
Milne, the late Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics in the University of Oxford, who concludes his work with the simple statement "I do most fervently believe that this universe was created by Almighty God.CELTIC DEITIES. The gods and goddesses, or deities of the Celts are known from a variety of sources, these include written Celtic mythology, ancient places of worship, statues, engravings, cult objects and place or personal names.
Phèdre (originally Phèdre et Hippolyte) is a French dramatic tragedy in five acts written in alexandrine verse by Jean Racine, first performed in at the theatre of the Hôtel de Bourgogne in Paris.
The Iliad is an epic poem in dactylic hexameters, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set in the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of Ilium by a coalition of Greek states, it tells of the battles and e. The first man came out of the earth, a material creature.
The second man came from Heaven and was the Lord himself. For the life of this world men are made like the material man; but for the life that is to come they are made like the one from Heaven. Theseus was a Greek hero known for his defeat of the Minotaur, though he defeated many other foes and won many other battles.
In this lesson, you'll learn all about Theseus, including his birth. If you're a fan of the culture and/or literature of Ancient Greece, then this book is pretty much a must-read.
It has five of the greatest surviving Greek tragedies from three of the most famous playwrights of the ancient world.
