Hammurabi’s code I think was in fact just. The laws that Hammurabi got from the gods did protect the weak as stated they would in the Epilogue of the Code. Examples are shown in other paragraphs how the laws did protect the weak.

Back then you didn 't need a medical license and they didn 't exist, so you had to cut off their hands if they did a bad job for it was the only way to stop them.
For example, after Nat Turner’s rebellious act against the whites many still thought that slavery should be abolished. Even though they saw Turner’s actions as pure evil they still wanted to get rid of such an immoral violent system as slavery. Not only because it was immoral but because it also brought up the chances that slaves could only put up with so much of it until they would seek for vengeance. I don’t believe Stephan B. Oates was trying to perpetuate a racial divide in the legacy of Nat Turner at all. What he was trying to do by writing the book The Fires of Jubilee was to accurately tell how the events occurred.
Medicine influenced the ancient Mayan society by forcing the ancient Mayans to believe in the limited treatments that were available to them. Much of Mayan medicine was reliant on spiritual chants because of their lack of in-depth research, however they did use plant extracts to cure certain ailments; relying on the color of the plant to determine what it could cure. Today, we know that the color of the plant means very little about its healing properties which shows us how the Mayans had to trust their remedies because they had no other options.

The Ancient Egyptians possessed great knowledge of the human anatomy and the natural world.

Many Ancient Egyptian Priests were also doctors as many cures also involved blessing or prayers. Other doctors were scribes and given titles of "chief doctor and scribe of the word of God.” 1 Doctors had their own hierarchy, there were “basic doctors, senior doctors, inspectors, overseers and masters of physicians and the Chief of Physicians.” 1 The Royal palace doctors had their own specialized hierarchy. The degree of specialization among Ancient Egyptian physicians was quite remarkable

Moore states that “the word Negro is so saturated with filth, so polluted with the white man 's stereotypes, that there is nothing to be done but to get rid of it." He prefered the word "Afro-American" because of its "correctness, exactness, even elegance." He believed the adoption of the word will force European-Americans to reevaluate black people in terms of their history and culture. Afro-American was first used as an adjective in 1853 in a publication in Windsor, Ontario, Voice of the Fugitive. But the world did not know that the prefix “Afro” exist, but America knew the word as the popular 1970 's hairstyle that Blacks would

I wanted to have a research about Apollo because I thought he would give us a lesson.
