Latini 2 Marc Latini Professor Eckert 10/23/17 Mid-term Exam India’s social structure has always been based on their religion, Hinduism, and has been for hundreds of years as it is considered the oldest surviving religion in the world today. Hinduism first began around 1500 BC and has had a vast effect on Indian life ever since. Hinduism started to change the way people thought about the world and inspired Hindu’s to have new beliefs on the world itself. The main belief that people associate directly to Hinduism is their belief of reincarnation or Samsara. Hinduism is a polytheistic religion meaning they worship multiple gods.
But in the three big monotheistic religions, they believe that it was God himself who created the universe. This is stated in the first book of the old testament, the book of Genesis. When we look at the differences between Hinduism and Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; we can see there are some major differences. Hinduism is a pantheistic and polytheistic religion where Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are all monotheistic religions. Judaism is the first religion to teach the monotheistic point of view.
Hakor in Wikipedia Hakor, or Akoris, was the Pharaoh of Egypt from 393 BC to 380 BC. Hakor overthrew his predecessor Psammuthes and falsely proclaimed himself to be the grandson of Nepherites I, founder of the 29th Dynasty, on his monuments in order to legitimise his kingship.

Reign - Early in his reign, Hakor revolted against his overlord, the Persian King Artaxerxes. In 390 BC, he concluded a tripartite alliance with Evagoras, king of Cyprus, and Athens.

So, what is overlooked by most apologists when they trying to identify Dhul Qaranyn and they state that the story in Quran is not based on legendary stories of Alexander III of Macedonia. Instead, they say it 's based entirely on legendary stories of Alexander. Also, they state that the Qur 'an story of Dhul Qaranyn parallels a Syriac legend where Alexander is portrayed as a monotheistic king. The mutual influence and interdependence of the Alexander stories of Pahlavī, Syriac, and Koranic Arabic traditions on Alexander of Macedon finally gave rise to the Islamic (and mainly Persian) myth, story, or rather tale about Iskandar/Sikandar Dhū 'l- Qarnayn, a larger than life character and a mythical hero, who combines the traits of Alexander the Great with the features of an Islamic prophetic figure, who paved the way for the spread of Islam. Moreover, the Islamic poets and scholars of Persian language into their Iranian history, integrate Alexander as one of their greatest Shahanshahs or Kings of all
The pinnacle of Scheler’s development of a Christianity philosophy comes in his explanation in the origins and enactment of the philosophy of Christian love. Scheler describes this love as “a love which makes it seem frightful that only some should be ‘good’, while the others are ‘bad’ and reprobate”. By saying this, Scheler means that the love of a Christian not only values goodness and virtue within oneself, but that the love extends so far onto the other person that it desires that he or she be good and virtuous, also. Scheler describes this as a “sense of solidarity” with the other person, and says that “in this affection for the sinners I find no ressentiment”. This is a consequence of the new Christian philosophy that love transcends the material value of the person and instead treasures their inherent worth.

Because of explosive population growth, Pew Research suggests that Muslims, the followers of Islam, will outnumber Christians by the year 2060, with Islam displacing Christianity as the largest monotheistic religion in the world. Islam translated means “submission.” Muslims live their lives in submission to the will of their god, Allah, who is the same God of the Christian and Jewish faiths.

One of the most well known pieces of architecture from this kingdom is the Step Pyramid. This was the first building in history to be completely made out of dressed stone (Cole 28). The Step Pyramid at its peak is at a height of two hundred feet (Cole 28). It was constructed by Imhotep for his pharaoh Djoser, and it was Djoser’s final resting place (Cole 28).
