Sometimes it's good to be a little weird

Business II: Business Opportunity

Businesses have been around for years and years. We hear of different professions all throughout history. Farming, Doctors, carpentry, and many more.

But now a days you almost need a website to have your business go places, but it also has to be practically set up, with user friendly set up. This is why web design intrigued me I think it would be a business you could be in for quite a while.

Western Civilization: Medea

Whenever we are trying to find out about ancient culture the best way is to read their writings. That’s why we are looking at Euripides play, Medea. We are looking at it to view in Greek culture.

In Greek culture women were kind of viewed as servants in the marriage. Jason, Medea’s husband, abandons his wife for another woman everybody sees it as normal. If Medea would have done this she would have been killed.

But you also have to keep in mind that this isn’t how it was everywhere in Greek culture.

Western Literature: Genesis vs. Theogony

Genesis is the first book in the Bible. It’s where we learn a lot about God and what He represents. We learn that He is a loving God. Quite a bit of what Christians believe is based on the book of Genesis.

Christians believe in one God, a loving God that cares for his children.

The Greek gods are very unpredictable. And there were soo many of them! There were gods of wind, mountains, and oceans. Gods of sickness and health. So many different gods.

In Genesis we learn that God loves His children. The Greek gods had no reason to love you.

The Greek gods fought. And would punish you for anything. The only reason to worship them was so they wouldn’t kill you.

The main difference between God and the Greek gods is that God is a loving kind Father who loves his children. And the Greek gods didn’t create you and they weren’t loving. They would kill you at the drop of a hat.

 

Biology: Why Are More Men Color Blind?

So, females have two chromosomes called X. Even if one of these has color blindness potential, a female will most likely not be colorblind, if the second chromosome is not colorblind. This is because the X without colorblindness tends to be more dominant.

But since she has the colorblindness trait, she can pass it to her son.This means he will be colorblind, because men have XY chromosomes and Y chromosomes hold very little genetic traits.

The only way for a female to be color blind is if her father is colorblind and her mother caries the colorblindness traits.

Western Civilization: Persian Wars and Peloponnesian

The year is 499BC and the Greeks are rising up a against Persia. Athens sends ships and Persia emerges in victory. Still bitter about it, King Darius goes seeking revenge on the Greeks.

In 490BC Persia rose against the Greeks. The Athenians run to Sparta for help, but they are in the middle of a religious ceremony so they deny help. When they arrive after their ceremony is over the war is also over.

In the recovery from the Persian Wars, some people decided that they needed allies. So Sparta got her allies and they called themselves the Peloponnesian League. Athens also got allies and they called themselves the Delion Legue.

In the Delion League some city-states were giving money to Athens to make a good navy. But after a while they noticed that a lot of expensive things were being done in Athens and none of it had to do with the navy. So they decided they didn’t want to be part of this force anymore. However Athens forced them to stay.

Even with this, Athens was becoming pretty powerful which concerned Sparta. So they went to war.

In 431BC the Peloponnesian War began. The war went on and on and on. Until finally in 404BC Sparta landed the final blow and the Delion League was dissolved.

Western Literature: Biblical Material

Ethics is all throughout the Bible, and what we live by now is mostly based on the  Bible. Even most Atheist know this. The basics of what we live by come from the Bible.

One of the commandments is thou shalt not lie: this is used in courts all throughout the world. Everybody wants to hear the truth. People have based careers on truth for centuries. Lawyers, police, and judges have put the seeking of truth into their careers.

All the commandments are ethics to live by.

Honor thy father and mother is something that every parent expects their child. Parents often demand respect from their children: and way back centuries ago this was a huge thing! Your heritage and the way you treated your parents was a major deal!

Now thou shalt not kill is something that has affected people alllll throughout history literally since the beginning of time, Cain and Abel is the first case of though shalt not kill. Almost every country for thousands of years has had a No Murder policy. America it’s self still has capital punishment. In the Bible if you murder you’ll get a major punishment.

Thou shalt not steal has influenced the way many countries set up their laws.

All of the things I just wrote to you are from the Bible, and every single last one of these have greatly contributed to history. Whether people like it or not, God is everywhere you look.

Business II: Accounting

Ok. All business owners who love doing book work stand up. Chances are 1 in 10 of you stood up, because honest hour who likes accounting? Accounting aka book work is something a business owner who loves talking to customers is forced to sit down and do every now and then.

When he/she does sit down and do book work he’s forced to look at all the money he spent and hopefully gained in that period of time.

But there is a way you can have updates all the time on your accounting and it’s accrual accounting. You’re still going to have to see all the money you spend but instead of seeing it in big clumps every now and then you have to keep closer track of the money you spend, which is way better in the long run.

Western Civilization: Aristotle and Sparta

I think Aristotle was a significant figure because he introduced a new way of thinking to the culture. He showed that even if you don’t believe like everybody else, you can still be someone who loves knowledge. Even though Aristotle believed differently than Plato that doesn’t mean they hated each other, and think we can learn something from that.

Sparta was a very rigorous place to live. At age 7! 7! the boys left home to start military training. If they stole they got beat for being caught, not for stealing. The girls were constantly doing sports. This was all very rigorous and I personally wouldn’t want to live there.

Western Literature: Ethics and Sanctions

Proverbs is parents talking to their son telling him how to be a good man. A man of morals.

” For that they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. Buy whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:29-33

Here they are saying that they didn’t listen to knowledge and since they didn’t they will suffer the consequences. This is displaying the difference between what ethics: morals; would give you and what happens when you don’t listen, which is sanctions.

” My Son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledg of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:1-6

They are saying that if you do this series of faith steps you’ll receive wisdom. Wisdom will create morals within you, which will create eithics.

” My Son, forget not my laws; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and learn not unto thine own understand” Proverbs 3:1-5

       This is a father offering his son morals to follow, which is what ever father wants to give his son.

Proverbs is full of good advice and wisdom. It’s one of my favorite books in the Bible.
