  • Ancient Egyptian Architecture Essay

    Although the Abydos Temple isn’t as popular as the Luxor Temple nearby, it has its own unique beauty. The walls of the Abydos Temple are decorated with hieroglyphics each telling a story from ancient times. It was built by Seti 1 of the 19th dynasty, and was principally dedicated to Osiris. The temple was the central point for the pharaoh’s cult worship of Osiris, and also became one of the most important burial centers in ancient Egypt. In the temple of Seti 1 there are no less than seven sanctuaries in the inner temple honoring many other rulers and pharaohs. Nonetheless, the Abydos Temple has many hidden historical events, along with massive structures in dedication to other rulers. It is also very beautiful and magnificent to the eyes, for it is one of the inventive treasures in Ancient Egypt. The next destination is Luxor 's Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. It is a 2 hour 1 minute drive by car from the Abydos…

  • Argumentative Essay On Extraterrestrial Life

    Although the benefits might be rewarding, given the past interactions of different countries, races, and nationalities, I do not believe Earth is able to handle the differences of an alien species. Furthermore, in popular culture, entertainment outlets, such as novels, television, and films, have portrayed alien species as vastly different from human species. In more cases, the alien species ravages Earth in search of resources. This portrayal of aliens is often based on the own human ability to…

Which we aren’t: we’ve proven to ourselves using words and numbers and formulas like the Drake Equation that space is too large and weird and wonderful for just us to exist in it.
