The history of Ethiopia could also be called the history of humanity. The question is not if this history is well documented, but why it is not thought widely in schools. The time necessary to study the tomes that refer to the Nubians as the forbearers of our civilization is enormous. The world owes Ethiopia for its history, astronomy, agriculture and all the other sciences, and John G. Jackson gave ample references to validate this claim. Ethiopia’s history is incredible and a treasure to the world and it is a shame that it has been distorted by the persistent Eurocentrism.

<h2>A Fascinating Guide to Understanding the Ancient Greek Religion with Its Gods, Goddesses, Monsters and Mortals</h2><br />The ancient Greeks were explorers in many ways. They traveled to new places, creating colonies in strange lands far from their original homes. They were survivors. They were honorable thieves. They used their cunning to explore the frontiers of philosophy and they wrested from the chaos of the surrounding wilderness the building blocks of civilization.<br /><br />Though the Greeks were late to the game of writing, what they wrote became an important part of our world’s heritage.<br />Greek heroes taught us many lessons, from Homer’s poetry about war and a warrior’s return home to the tales of Cadmus, Jason, Herakles and even Oedipus.<br /><br />The myths of Greek heroes give us a glimpse beyond the edge of history, into the lives of very real people. How much of their tales are true, we may never know. But this book will present their tales in a new light, hopefully making their experiences a bit more real and perhaps shining a light on what may have really happened behind the distortions of time and generations of misunderstanding.<br /><br />This book is broken into four parts. The first will explore Greek heroes, what they were like and what they accomplished.<br />The second part of the book will tackle Greek religion—the gods and goddesses which establish the backdrop against which Greek legends were formed.<br /><br />In the third part of the book, we take a close look at the myths of Greek monsters. And finally, in the fourth part, we explore the possible meaning behind the literal words of Greek mythology. Early in the written history of ancient Greece, we have the great Athenian lawgiver, Solon. He attempted to tame the unruly beast within the heart of each Greek hero. They were selfish, each and every one of them. But they also had a code of honor that helped them rein in their selfishness. So, we will end the book with Solon, who established laws so unpopular with the wicked that the lawgiver left Athens on an extended vacation so that others would not be able to talk him out of the laws he had handed down. But we will start with the heroes who came before Greek history began.<br /><br /><h2>Just some of the topics covered in this book include</h2><br /><ul><li>Greek Heroes</li><li>Honorable Thieves</li><li>Legends of Pride</li><li>Legend of Cadmus, Founder of Thebes, Greece</li><li>The Illiad</li><li>The Odyssey</li><li>Myths of Wonder</li><li>Cecrops and Dragons</li><li>Greek Religion</li><li>The Burdens of Selfishness and Hubris</li><li>The Ages of Man</li><li>Morals of the Gods</li><li>Zeus Giving Birth to a New Kind of Chaos</li><li>Greek Monsters</li><li>Typhon and Echidna</li><li>Perseus and Cetus</li><li>Herakles and His Labors</li><li>Greek Connection to Civilization</li><li>Foundations of Greek Thought</li><li>And More</li></ul><h2>Download the book now and learn more about Greek mythology</h2>

Customer Reviews
Many of you have been given a shorthand version of Earth’s history so you would not be alarmed. Unfortunately, safety is not in ignorance. The only thing obtained from ignorance is easy acceptance of other half- truths like destruction by human induced Global Warming or other gloom and doom characterizations. Today our children have no understanding of our past so they have great fear of our future Hopefully you now understand how much better it is to believe. This book will hopefully open your eyes to a better understanding of our planet, how we got where we are, some of the dangers we should be aware of, the substantial details that have been eliminated from most students who are eagerly trying to understand this world. One of the things that is sometimes hidden is that not so very long ago, our planet was much larger. One day, while minding its own business, something came along and ripped away ½ of the entire crust from the planet and it could happen again. This was the first of several massive explosions on the Earth we need to track as they affected humans. This book provides you with an expanded awareness of who we got where we are today.

This book deals from about 55 hundred years ago until about 3 thousand years ago. During that time there has been substantial confusion about our history. Some of the areas of confusion include why God Incarnate would come when he did; when did Commode rule the world; who were the Hyksos; when did the Nubians control Egypt, and where did Solomon get all his wealth. Many other answers await the reader.
