Adam the Story Term Paper



According to the Old Testament as found in the Holy Bible (King James Version), Adam was the name of the first human being ever to live on the earth following its creation by God. In the Hebrew Scriptures, the word adam may be a reference to the Hebrew word adom which means red-hued clay of the earth, with the word adamah meaning "earth." In Genesis 2:7, we find the first instance where God the creator brings Adam to life by blowing into his nostrils the breath of life ("And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living….

Adam and Eve in Genesis vs. the Koran: Comparison Research Paper

… Adam and Eve: Koran and Genesis

The story of Adam and Eve appear both in the Holy Quran and Bible but there are some significant differences. Even though the story is basically the same, the differences lie in the way it is told and the description assigned to each character. We find after our analysis that the story that appears in Koran is far stronger and more respectful to God and Adam and Eve than the version we find in Bible. Some of the main comparison points are discussed below

The role of Eve

In the story as it appears in Genesis, Eve is assigned all the blame. She is considered a weak person who is befooled by the serpent as she is tempted to…. [read more]

Adam Smith: The Economic and Political Visionary Term Paper

… Adam Smith: The Economic and Political Visionary

Adam Smith (1723-1790), was a professor of moral philosophy at Glasgow

University and a visionary economic political theorist who pioneered a capitalist theory that was to become known as laissez fair economics. His most influential written works were an Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, which he authored in 1776, fittingly, the same year as the birth of the United States, where his approach to economics was to be embraced and implemented more extensively than any other nation.

In some respects, later critics would suggest that Smith's economic philosophy was fundamentally inconsistent with his other views, most specifically, with his moral philosophy as expressed in his earlier work, the Theory of the Moral…. [read more]

Evolution in Before Adam Jack Term Paper

… I graduated last of my class. I cared more for atheletics and... more for billiards."

The antagonist in the story is an atavist of another kind. Red-Eye is a huge ape-like creature in the dream. He pursues the narrator's proto-human counterpart, Big-Tooth, and bears more of a resemblance to the now-defunct tree-dwelling species than to the cave-dwellers he lives with and who defer to his strength. Red-Eye is an outsider in his own right, and in this way mirrors the narrator. Accordingly, the conflict in the novella - both the textual conflict between Big-Tooth and Red-Eye, and the subtextual conflict between the alienated narrator and his world - is, clearly, a conflict between atavists and normals. It is a conflict rooted in evolution.

The other…. [read more]

Patch Adams Film Review Film Review

… ¶ … Patch Adams

In the 1998 film Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams as Hunter "Patch" Adams and directed by Tom Shadyac, the viewer is treated to a wide variety of chaos set within a contemporary hospital, where Dr. Adams uses humor as a way of communicating and relating to his patients. Most of this chaos is based upon Adam's philosophy that laughter is the best medicine and as a caring doctor "will do almost anything to make his patients laugh, even if it means risking his own career" ("Patch Adams Story," Internet).

As part of the film's plot, there are several factors related to this chaos. First of all, Dr. Adams is up against a very rigid health care system that does not tolerate…. [read more]

Willa Cather and Henry Adams Term Paper

… In his family, creativity wasn't important since no one understood the real worth of a true artist. Henry also realized that apart from his family, almost the entire America in the 19th century was more interested in monetary worth of a person than his artistic values. But he believed that it is only when money was forgotten as a major concern that an artist could achieve his goals.

Henry firmly maintained that a person who follows his dreams is the one who is usually remembered for the longest time. He felt that it was therefore important for an artist to pay close attention to his work and always try to produce his best work without being concerned about money or fame.

Henry chose to give…. [read more]

Sight, Through the Children's Gate Essay

… The title of the book itself "Through the Children's Gate" although referring to the park entrance also implies relooking at life as children do, looking at event in a fresh innocentway. He tries to see situations around him with a new eye and with the clarity and eagerness like a child. Gopniks daughter Olivia for example is fascinated by dogs something that most adults are bored by, "Olivia, was happily occupied at the window, dog-spotting. 'Dog!' "Dog!' came the occasional shout… She is endlessly excited, then wildly agitated whenever she spots one, which, given the density of dogs on Upper East Side streets, she does, predictably, twice a moment. (59).

Gopnik, in the meantime, contrast this child's view with his adult skeptical interpretation of the…. [read more]

Hitchhiker's Guide Douglas Adam's Comic Book Report

… 67), unknowingly forecasting the development of the iPod Touch.

Dent and Prefect travel through space by hitchhiking, picked up by spacecraft within the improbable nanosecond during which contact could possibly occur. They travel from planet to planet in a "nothingth of a second," making their travel faster than the speed of light, given the distances over which they traverse. Although this mode of travel has been theoretical supported by the theory of special relativity, it has obviously never been done except within the pages of books such as Adams's. In reality, it seems as improbable as Adams' physics of improbability.

Some of the science in Hitchhiker is accurate, or nearly so. Dent's alien friend is from a small planet "six hundred light-years away in the…. [read more]

Civil War Awakening Is Adam Book Report

… United under the general rubric of a sense of persecution, the secessionists hastily created a faux nation -- a confederacy of states -- based on its economic clout and commitment to inhuman methods of achieving that economic supremacy. White supremacy is indeed an ancillary undercurrent of Goodheart's 1861. Although the author does not dwell too long on matters related to race, class, and power in the antebellum United States, Goodheart cannot help but trace the evolution of Union sentiment to one that was almost universally ambivalent towards slavery towards one that was adamantly opposed to it. In fact, this is one of the central features of the awakening the nation experienced. Were it not for the shots heard at Fort Sumter, and were it not…. [read more]

Exodus Catastrophes Term Paper

… Exodus

Catastrophes have been present in the history of the world from time immemorial and there have been catastrophes both in the solar system as well as in the Earth and ancient history is replete with the various catastrophes caused by maybe dragons or Gods wielding thunderbolts or any other such weapons; the most popular themes for such works being that of destruction and creation which is full of cosmic imagery and magical happenings.

Over the past few hundreds of years, the subject of the Exodus has generated a great amount of literature on the subject and many do understand the fact that the Exodus is in fact a Late Bronze Age event, dated probably the ca.1560 to 1200, although there are others who state…. [read more]

Adam Bede, George Eliot Uses Term Paper

… She may even have lost herself - for in the end she seems to have been reduced to something less than fully human, although not something that is in any way natural. She has none of the grace of the natural world that is so important in this novel - as well as in other Romantic works. She has become some sort of living ghost, some broken, preternatural thing.

We see the essential destruction of this character in this description of the fate of her child; in this passage we see how Eliot has irrevocably marked her as being unable to act as a moral agent in this story. Her inability to serve as a force of good - or even evil - marks her…. [read more]

Adam and Eve Essay

… Creation Myths

The mystery of man's origins fuels him to create a reasonable explanation of his existence. Unfortunately, the complexities of life leave man wondering and without a very good explanation. The use of myth to help man and his struggles in existence aids him and his ability to navigate his world. The creation of mankind holds many clues to its existence and through symbols and art this understanding may be fully understood by the attributes of the human psyche that transcend conscious thought.

The purpose of this essay is to explore the idea of creation myths, or origin stories, to identify the main themes that serve as inspiration and guidance to current culture and day-to-day living. This essay will compare the creation story found…. [read more]

Nick Adams Stories by Ernest Term Paper

… Hemingway's alter-ego has come a long way when "Big Two-Hearted Hearted River" was completed. Nick, contrary to his naive personality in "Indian," has evolved to become somewhat similar to Henry Thoreau, isolating himself from the urban landscape of human society into the 'primitive' and natural environment of the forest. Where once he was an individual trying to fathom the importance of life (and death) in the world, Nick in "Two-Hearted River" achieves understanding and wisdom through nature. As he traveled into the town of Seney, Hemingway symbolically illustrates to his readers Nick's journey as the character's gradual retreat from human society, with his back facing civilization and forward ahead, is Nature awaiting him (209-210).

A there was something mysterious and homelike. Nick was happy... He…. [read more]

Ansel Adams' Farm Land: Photography Essay

…  As a leader of the Sierra Club, Adams strongly supported conservation and resigned from the Club when it compromised on a plan to urbanize Yosemite on Tioga Road. Just as he showed in “Farm workers and Mt. Williamson” in 1943, Adams was adamant that landscape be preserved in its pristine condition (Turnage).

Preservation of Rural America in Ansel Adams' Photography

The preservation of rural America, however, was not something that could last—at least not in the idealized form that Adams captured and presented to the world. Whatever sentimental satisfaction one could get from vintage photographs of rural America, whether it was Hine’s photo of child beet farmers, or Adams’ photo of adult farmers worker at the foothills of a mountain, was gone by the time….

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night With Milton Term Paper

… 194) before God.

Theme of World Order and Balance:

In Twelfth Night we are shown that disorder is a threat to society and that a happy peaceful existence depends on social order, and ultimately world order. This theme is demonstrated in many instances. When the play opens, Orsino's life is in disorder, citing "excess" and "appetite":

If music be the food of love, play on,

Give me excess of it, that suffering,

The appetite may sicken and so die.

That strain again, it had a dying fall.

O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound

That breathes upon a bank of violets,

Stealing and giving odor. Enough, no more,

"Tis not so sweet now as it was before. (1, 1, 1-8).

Exile From the Garden of Eden Is Not a Curse Upon Humankind Research Paper

… Garden of Eden

Biblical folklore has provided the foundation for many contentious arguments regarding its meaning and subsequent purpose. Many pundits and religious practitioners have varying views as to the underlying meaning of the occurrences within the bible. This debate has been waged for many centuries spawning various religious beliefs in its wake. The overall umbrella of Christianity has now fragmented into various systems, practices and beliefs. It is because of this fragmentation that honest and open debate has occurred. One such debate is centered on the story of Adam and Eve. Many practitioners of Christianity recall the creation of Adam and Eve subsequently followed by their exile. Many believe this exile to be a curse upon mankind, in which all civilization must bear. However,…. [read more]

Evidence (Select Quotes, Pages?) Essay

… Nevertheless, Misrilal was genuinely in love with her, despite his mother's perception that it was a temporary infatuation of his young age. He tried to ensure a better future for her and their unborn child, but was sent away. Their separation was painful for both of them. The young man hoped that his mother would take care of his lover, whereas Dhowli feared a grim fate. And where the young Misra was dreaming of opening a store and providing for them all, Dhowli was coming to terms with her future as a prostitute, a public whore forced to leave home, her mother and her baby.

Overall, however tragic, the love idea in Dhowli is true and real and the affection was pure and heartfelt by…. [read more]

Account Studying the Characters Term Paper

… Milton's epic poems carry a strong spiritual undertone wherein he stresses the need for a strong will and the consequences of succumbing to ephemeral attractions. In both the epic poems under discussion feminine charms ultimately proved to be destructive. It has a blinding effect, which hides the truth from the untruth. For example both Samson and Adam are overcome by their attachments to women and fall victim to their sensual weaknesses.

Conclusion comparison between Jesus and the other two characters 'Samson' and 'Adam' of the epic poems is purely out of place. Jesus though he is born on earth, personifies the wisdom of god in all its unsullied purity. (The Son of God). The vital difference between them is that the birth of Jesus is…. [read more]

Paradise Lost in His Epic Poem Essay

… Paradise Lost

In his epic poem Paradise Lost, John Milton characterizes Satan in such a way that William Blake actually suggested that Milton was "of the Devil's party without knowing it." This is because in Blake's view, Satan was actually the true protagonist of Paradise Lost, as Milton presents him as a far more relatable and sympathetic character than one might believe. Although Milton's Paradise Lost is undoubtedly written from a Christian perspective, and thus implicitly marks Satan as villain and adversary, a close inspection of Milton's treatment of Satan reveals that he is far more complicated of a character than usually believed. In particular, Satan's speech in Book I presents him as a noble, compassionate character acting in defiance of an oppressive, restrictive God.…. [read more]

Blackest Bird Opens on July Book Report

… The killer supposedly dumps Mary Rogers' limp frame into the Hudson River on July 26, 1841 at midnight. "Make no mistake," the narrator begins, "the task at hand affects him deeply," (Rose 11). Rose tries to engender sympathy with the murderer, painting him as a man who is "not entirely cold-blooded," (11). The real-life murder of Mary Rogers did indeed take place in July of 1841, although the exact time of the murder and of the body disposal are not known exactly. Rose does a close enough job describing the setting: a sweltering summer in pre-air conditioning New York City. The real-life Mary Rogers was known as the "beautiful cigar girl," or the "beautiful Seegar girl," as it was sometimes put colloquially ("Who Killed Mary…. [read more]

Earth Religion and Homosexuality Essay

… She said that, "I am not condemning the homosexuals to hell I in no way am God and neither is any other human being who passes this kind of judgment. The salvation of anyone is among them and God moreover He is the one who knows what is in our hearts. I do believe that this is not the way that the relationships were intended by Him but what are those people suppose to do who have been born this way? We all have done things that aren't according to our religious teachings. I have been promiscuous but I have asked God to help in changing my mindset and guide me in the right direction."

In conclusion it can be said that what people belief…. [read more]

International Trade Ever Since Adam Term Paper

… Privatization, deregulation, and economic reform became the buzzword around the world, resulting in accelerated transfer of assets, revenues, and power from elected governments to corporations. Let us now look at the negative effects of free international trade and globalization over the last few years.

How International Free Trade Policies Favor Big Corporations

Free trade policies are perceived by many to favor big business interests. Consider the following examples:


The WTO rules forbid a citizen of a third world country to copy a compact disc made in a developed country without paying a fee to the company that sells the compact disc. However, the WTO rules allow a company from the same developed country to make compact discs in a third world country despite the…. [read more]

Lottery" by Shirley Jackson Term Paper

… Nebeker (1974) explains Jackson's use of name symbolism:

"Martin," Bobby's surname, derives from a Middle English word signifying ape or monkey. This juxtaposed with "Harry Jones" (in all its commonness) and "Dickie Delacroix" (of-the-cross) urges us to an awareness of the Hairy Ape within us all, veneered by a Christianity as perverted as "Delacroix," vulgarized to "Dellacroy" by the villagers. Horribly, at the end of the story, it will be Mrs. Delacroix, warm and friendly in her natural state, who will select a stone "so large she had to pick it up with both hands" and will encourage her friends to follow suit.

Jackson's use of symbolism in the names chosen for the characters in the story is apparent and provocative. Furthermore, "Old Man Warner"…. [read more]

Secrets in the Text Essay

… Just to being more life and reality to his text, Gopnik also uses poems of other writers. A poem that was written by Auden has specifically been mentioned because it predicts the events of 9/11.

His idea of using the poem in this book is summarized in the sentence of this chapter that reads "follow our authentic self-interest, which means being in touch with the reality of what is not actually possible in the world" (Gopnik 130).

The way that this book explains the aftermath of the event of 9/11, it makes it a hopeful one. Even though the text has been shadowed by fear and anxiety, Gopnik makes sure that he depicts the people of New York as being very brave.

For me, the…. [read more]

Intertextuality / Little Red Riding Essay

… When Kohlver asks "who the hell are you?" she responds inviting him to understand her allegorically: "I am every little girl you ever watched, touched, hurt, screwed, killed" (Hard Candy 2005).

Nonetheless it is worth noting the way in which Hard Candy does resemble the ur-text versions of the Red Riding Hood story, despite being a postmodern intertextual work. It is worth noting that, like Perrault's version of "Little Red Riding Hood," Hard Candy is a strongly moralistic film. Perrault, of course, makes his fairy tales into safe reading for children by means of attaching a moralistic way of reading to the text already. He tells the story, then he gives the moral. For Little Red Riding Hood, Perrault offers the following moral:

Civilizations Term Paper

… The political and military dominance that Roman Empire achieved over conquered states was dependent on the geographical advantages it had in attacking other states while defending itself through improvisation in natural barriers. The Roman Empire was established on the foundations laid by Greeks and thus it was Greek use of symbols and things that influenced the Roman more than any other factor. Vast expansion of the Empire was due to the diverse geographical location but this also caused the fall of empire as the geographical stretch spread too far (Adams et al. 2012, 5-50).

Beaux Strategem by George Farquhar Essay

… In this case the play was during the late 17th century in Great Britain. So the colors of the costumes were very muted with petticoats and wigs. The choice of costume for Dorian with her scenes with Mrs. Sullivan were well done.

Lighting is often overlooked in plays but it truly does help in setting the tone of a scene. Most of the scenes are fairly dark with a dark background and maybe some candles lit or light shining mainly on the characters. I found it with the comedic components of the play, the extra lighting helped breathe a sense of joy. I really liked that.

The sound/score helped just like the lighting by adding anticipation, suspense, almost prepping the audience for what was to…. [read more]

Amazon's Cloud Computing (Aws, EC2) Essay

… A further 26% of the respondents stated they were waiting for market maturity in order to adopt the cloud strategy formally. The survey also reported that for the respondents who had been using cloud-based solutions they had been doing so for an average of 20 months which showed that the industry is still young but has great potential for growth. The results stated that scalability and reduction in costs were the primary drivers for cloud usage while innovation and agility were also quickly emerging as a key factor in the adoption of cloud computing. It also emerged that IT companies view cloud computing as a means for effectively implementing new applications quickly while keeping up with the pace of application backlogs and the demands of….

Paradise Lost, Book I Analysis Essay

… He begins to construct an agenda against God to not only continue to disobey (in response to the shame and harsh treatment they have been subjected to), but to also sow evil wherever God attempts to create good and to sabotage God's every plan. His ultimate wish is to anger God and prove that he is superior. At Line 255 he vows to make "a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n." At Line 263, this king of the rebel angels states, "Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heav'n." Satan knows of God's intended creation called man and puts forth that the war against heaven will be waged on earth against God's beloved creation, mankind.

The demons in Book I are depicted as…. [read more]

Psychosocial Dynamics of Twelve Angry Case Study

… Certainly the jurors are bound to an either-or situation that is bounded by their ability to cooperate or their insistence on competition. As with other conflict resolution situations, the strongest solutions can be achieved through a balance of these dynamics. Nevertheless, the position of the jurors in act one is fundamentally competitive (there has been no real negotiation at that point) and their position at the end of the film is fundamentally cooperative -- but it is grounded in their opposition and competition. The not guilty verdict was reached on the basis of the jurors agreeing to disagree -- the disagreement itself a hallmark of their inability to conclude that the defendant was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Judgment bias. As the jury proceeds to…. [read more]
