There are basically 2 opposing sources of explanation concerning the appearance of human beings on Earth: science vs religion, or evolution vs creationism. In this post I would like to share an alternative explanation that is called the ancient aliens theory or ancient astronaut theory.
There are so many ancient flood stories from around the world similar to the story of Noah. Actually there are not only 15 flood myths but there are hundreds! However in this post I will only be sharing 15 representatives of these (compacted) flood stories from the 5 major religions, i.e. JudeoChristianity – Islam religions, that is of course: the story of Noah, from Hindu religion and Buddhist “religion”. Then we will continue with flood myths from the representatives of the 5 “continents” i.e. Middle East (ancient Mesopotamian areas and ancient Egypt), Europe (ancient Greece and Scandinavia/Norse mythologies), MesoAmerica, Asia (ancient China), Africa and Australia/Pacific.
Easter is one the most important holidays in Christianity. It is a festival to celebrate Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death by crucifixion. Today, many Christians go to the “sunrise services” in church on Easter Sunday, followed by Easter brunch with cakes, and children hunt for Easter bunny eggs. But what is the true origin of Easter? Is it truly a religious practice commanded by Jesus in the Bible or is it an ancient pagan tradition? What is the connection between Jesus’ resurrection, Easter bunnies and decorated eggs?
Buddhism beliefs are taught by Siddharta Gautama or more popularly known as the Buddha. Most historians date the beginning of Buddhism at around 5th century BCE in India. It has been argued that Buddhism is not a religion but “merely” a philosophy since it does not command its followers to worship to a supernatural being. However, for the sake of our religious comparison study, throughout this site it will be categorized in the religious group. In this article we will be covering the following topics about Buddhism beliefs:
- History of Buddhism
- The Main Teachings of Buddhism
- The Sacred Texts of Buddhism
- The Buddhas
- Buddha Maitreya
