God once again moved the Red Sea, this time, closing in a killing almost all of the Egyptian army, but Ramses 11 escaped death and walked back to Egypt. (Tiano pg 28) From thence on, Ramses the Great only used paid workers to build Egypt, instead of slaves. From building breathtaking temples and making Egypt’s economy thrive, to being one of the greatest Egyptian war heros, Ramses the Second is truly a fantastic pharaoh. I see why so many people visit Egypt just to go and see one of his amazing builds.

This is why Akhenaten is so remarkable and interesting. Because of this, he didn’t have any achievements that were wide spread. But, when he reigned he changed it so that him and his wife, Nefertiti were the only representatives for Aten on earth. This made the people of Egypt very angry because the new representatives were the only ones with access to the new god Aten. Most of the achievements certainly didn’t last long because after his reign, his son Tutankhamun changed the religion and the art back to its original ways.

Galileo believes in the Bible and that God has supreme authority over the world, but he sees religion and science as two different things. It is not the purpose of the Bible to explain the physical world, it is there to save our souls. He makes three distinguishes: The Bible and Church have all matters of faith. , if any scientific finding if proven to be true but is against the teachings of the Bible, then we have not found the true meaning of the Bible, and anything not proven that is against the Bible must be
Deists still believed that God created everything but compared God to a clock maker. Once God was done with the world, he would step back and let it work on its own. Natural laws allowed everything work, there was no need for an intervention from God. It was not Christianity because it left no room for a miracle, thus doing away with the virgin Mary or Jesus being sent down to earth. Deists saw God as scientific, a non-interfering god.
John Calvin sparked a theological revolution when he introduced the practice of Calvinism during the 14th century. This ideology suggested spiritual predestination: a conclusion that man had already been picked to go to Hell or Heaven before his life had even begun. While only a few are safe from doom, Calvin’s argument established that the majority of mankind comes into this world already wicked. Humans are not born evil, for their brain does not have any type of moral comprehension or cognitive understanding of evil at the beginning. Evil grows as a product of the environment and the choices made by a person to perform wicked acts.

In this essay, I will examine the argument for the Problem of Evil, a possible theodicy against the argument, and reply to the theodicy. First of all, to be clear, the Problem of Evil is an argument that shows that God cannot be either all- powerful, all-knowing, and/or all good.
When one looks at INGSOC as a secular religion, he/she is able to realize that Big Brother is more than just a party leader, but the God of this non-secular religion. Even though Big Brother began as a “mere mortal, [he] could imperceptibly arrogate himself the power of supernatural goodness, the power of the Sacred” (Hunt 156). Meaning that Big Brother was able to transcend the limits of an ordinary man and take on the powers of an immortal deity. In Genesis, the first chapter of the bible, God creates the entire world, from the animals of the wild to mankind. He created “man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them”(2).
Briana Kuykendall spoke at the symposium on Friday on the book, The Transforming Vision. She gave a detailed summary of what exactly the book was about and went into depth about some of the major key points talked about in the book.
