Many Christians believe that the first sin, caused by Eve, is why women have pregnancy pains, why men have to labor, and why people have to die, with no eternal life. The new founding’s made by scientist and philosophers thought that there could be other “realistic” reasons on why things like such happened. The Enlightenment Era was revolutionary because the people were finally finding their voices. Instead of basing their day to day lives off of religion, they grew a curiosity for intellect. Certain people who were Deist believed that there was a God and that he created all life, but He was not involved in every little thing that transpired in their daily operations.
The age of enlightenment was a philosophical peak in history that set a course for the rest of time. Many different ideas were brought about that shaped the way we live to this day, especially here in the states. Two philosophers in particular affected the United States of America; Thomas Hobbes and Tom Locke. Both of these philosophers pasts formed their philosophy and the ideas they had, which affected the government of their time, and our government today. Hobbes and Locke had very different upbringings and backgrounds, which led them to having very different points of view on life.
Once adopted in 1780, the Massachusetts constitution could be changed only by another specially called constitutional convention. This procedure was later imitated in the drafting and ratification of the federal Constitution. In the British, a constitution was not a written document, but rather an accumulation of laws, customs, and precedents. Americans invented something different. The documents they drafted were contracts that defined the powers of government, as did the old colonial charters, but they drew their authority from the people, not from the royal seal of a distant king.
Advancements and Achievements of Early American Civilizations Modern culture has been greatly shaped and influenced by past civilizations. Ancient civilizations took the first steps to many of the advancements we have today. Although many of them are often overlooked, these civilizations made groundbreaking advancements in language, writing systems, agriculture, math, and architecture. Between 300 and 1500 AD, the Mayan, the Incan, and the Aztec civilizations existed In the Americas. Although they had significant differences, these ancient civilizations shared common ground in that they were all very advanced for their time periods, and that they each made their own developments and accomplishments that set them apart from each other and from
At that time congress had no real power because of the Articles of Confederation the US had adopted in 1777. Congress had to rely on contributions from the existing states. Needing and knowing that a change was needed the delegates from different states met to form a new plan of action. One that would give congress more power, equal representation for each state, form a new structure of government and the way it would run to benefit the United States of America. This is why the convention of 1778 was announced, during this convention two different plans were presented.
In the decades following the Civil War as the United States was changing from a primarily agricultural to an industrialized nation the American intellectual landscapes was changing in equally important ways. New ideas in the worlds of literature, science and philosophy were having great impact on intellectual and artistic endeavors and theses ideas were not just influencing the social elites but also America’s growing mass of ordinary, literate citizens. This influence would set in motion a change in mass direction for the United States. There are many important events that occurred during the Gilded Age.

The 13 colonies created the New Jersey Plan and the Virginia Plan to protect their rights again, but these two Plans had not been assembly into the
Time travel is a concept that most people only believe to exist in works of pure science fiction, but it may be a reality within the next generation. It is possible that if we travel close to the speed of light, we can travel forward in time; however, today 's technology has not provided us with a way to get back home. The fastest object created by man has gone 164,700 miles per hour or 45.75 miles per second (The Fastest Man-Made Objects, 2018). That is only 0.002 percent the speed of light, which would only send you into the future 2 milliseconds if you were on the ship for a whole day. The only plausible way to go back in time, is to open up a wormhole to the point that you would like to travel back to, travel into the future, make the other end of the wormhole travel at the speed of light.
