Okay, I am not trying to start any sort of fight but I have a question due to the amazing amount of people I'm friends with on Facebook that refer to Halloween as "The Devil's Birthday"...it's kinda a multi-part question so bear with me, here goes....Are angels created or do they just exist? Like would an Angel have any sort of specific birthdate? If they have a specific birthdate, who is tracking this? Would the "Devils Birthday" be the day he was born/created or when he fell from grace? I know this is a little trivial...but it just got me thinking.
One of the most well-known stories from Greek Mythology is the legend of Prometheus. This powerful Titan ruled over the realm of fire, and in a defiant act passed his sacred knowledge onto humanity (despite Zeus’s orders to keep this knowledge forbidden). This combustible tool allowed our ancestors to survive the cold, bake clay vessels, and clear forests for planting. It literally helped humanityascend from the stone age to a world of culture and technology.
Why and how could ancient people have dragged railway cars sized block of stone and stack them up together to form these amazing constructions? Why is it that we have found thousands of Pyramids scatter across the globe? These structures are truly a global phenomena that have puzzled archeologists for centuries.
Deforestation is a huge global problem, because it destroys animal habitats, deprives indigenous peoples of their traditional livelihoods and contributes to climate change. But if that doesn’t tip the scale for you, here’s yet another downside to be concerned about. Deforestation might have a role in this year’s outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, which already has killed 4,500 people there.
