The Egyptian Empire will always be remembered because of these things that happened in Egypt. Ancient Egyptian religion wasn’t a monotheistic religion, but a polytheistic religion with rituals and offerings to their god to keep everything in place. The religion would take place in a temple(the pyramids) and the Egyptians would do their sacrifices there. The religion also had “the Egyptians made great efforts to ensure the survival of their souls after death, providing tombs, grave goods, and offerings to preserve the bodies and spirits of the deceased”(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Egyptian_religion).

The upper part of the human body was closest to spirituality, to the world above while the lower part was closer to the earth, to the material world beneath their feet. Māori people were said to descend from two specific gods, Rangi the Sky Father, Heaven and Papa the Earth Mother, Earth3. As descendants, they believed they held quite a close relationship with these celestial beings and therefore their human bodies were seen as the essential link between Rangi and Papa. As Horatio Gordon Robley described in his book titled Māori Tattooing, the head of the person was considered sacred even after death and burial. The head is placed apart and upon visitation of the grave, it is taken out so that the visitor(s) may mourn over their death4.
Introduction The Biblical term peace and its cognates are foundational in the scriptures. It appears 550 times in the Bible. Peace and diversity are woven together as the threads of a tapestry; together giving us a picture of shalom, the way God designed the universe to be. Hence peace is a theme that constantly takes us back to the place of Eden, a place where the Creator and His creation were in shalom. This implies that whenever we have an issue caused by the fall, we need to go back and find out the source, where the cloth tore and sew it again with the right thread and appropriate needle.

Animals are also living creature on the earth, therefore they cannot escape from the fate of hard life during war time.

PART 2 (cont'd) THE HISTORY OF YORUBA The origin of Yoruba is quite controversial. Reverend Samuel Johnson in one of his books, _History of the Yoruba_ (1950) traces the origin of Yoruba to the "East", as a result of the similarities between the cultural practices of the Yorubas and the Egyptians with respect to religion, art and tradition. He revealed that the Yoruba by origin came from the North-Eastern (NE) area of Africa (by variation, probably Egypt, Yemen, Ancient Meroe and Arabia). Because of this, it is believed that Yoruba probably migrated from Egypt to where they are presently at about 2000-1000BC. They finally settled at Ile-ife, after a journey that lasted for years.
