Civilization is often used as a synonym for the broader term "background" in both popular and academic circles. No, if we are speaking along racial lines, in which instance they should be identified as Israelites. Cultural Historian Morris Berman suggests in Dark Ages America: the End of Empire that in the corporate consumerist United States, the very factors that once propelled it to greatness―extreme individualism, territorial and economic expansion, and the pursuit of material wealth―have pushed the United States across a critical threshold where collapse is inevitable.

I remonstrated against this arrangement as we stopped to rest. The perspective is that of the lands that surround the Muslim world or of the times that preceded its formation. These are drawings in the earth of geometric shapes, animals, birds, and fish that can be fully recognized only from the air. Even today the world is dealing with the consequences of wars past and present, as well as the tragic effects of anti-personnel mines and the use of frightful chemical and biological weapons.

Do a Rita's contralto laugh rang out loud, bitter, and contemptuous; and I heard Ortega's distracted screaming as if under torture. ``It hurts! Pitonyak's Pyramid Page __ This page about Egyptian pyramids is something sort of different. "...you will be asked to estimate the cost of building a pyramid using modern materials and ancient methods. Just past our solar system�s � frost line ,� the largest planet and first gas giant, Jupiter, formed.� In our solar system�s early days, smaller agglomerations of mass, called planetesimals, swarmed.� Those that began their lives inside the frost line were rocky, and those outside the frost line were generally comprised of lighter elements.� Those planetesimals bombarded the forming planets and increased their mass.� Other planetesimals were ejected from the solar system as the gravity of the Sun and planets whipped them around.� Today�s solar system provides mute evidence of that bombardment, as all rocky planets and moons are heavily cratered.� Earth�s geological processes have removed most evidence of that bombardment, but other rocky bodies have preserved the evidence.� It is thought that the bombardment of Earth by the planetesimals comprised of lighter elements provided the materials for Earth�s oceans and atmosphere.� Venus and Mars were also bombarded with the lighter elements and may have plentiful water long ago, but only Earth retained its water.� The biggest colli sion between Earth and its neighbors may well have created the Moon, and although the currently prevailing hypothesis has plenty of problems, the other hypotheses have more.� Moon rocks obtained by NASA�s Apollo missions show that the oldest parts of the Moon�s surface are about the same age as Earth .� Today�s p revailing scientific theories consider stars to be the observable universe�s energy centers.� According to today�s theories, 95% of the universe is not observable, as about 70% is dark energy and 25% is dark matter .� At this time, dark energy and dark matter have never been observed.� Any theory that relies on unobserved phenomena is going to be highly provisional, and I consider it unlikely that the prevailing cosmological theories a century from now will much resemble those of today.� The scale of the universe, from its largest to smallest objects, is truly difficult to imagine, and this animation can help provide some perspective.

As with Spartans, Macedonians, and other contemporary cultures, military prowess was greatly honored, in that �might makes right� Roman world.� Rome began battling its neighbors early and often, in wars of both offense and defense.� Its strategies and tactics borrowed from the Greeks, and it expanded its control over the Italian Peninsula.� Other than an invasion and sack of Rome around 390 BCE by Celts, Rome was usually on the winning side.� The bountiful forests in the vicinity allowed Rome to rebuild after it was sacked and burned. �Even when Rome lost, such as against the Greek Pyrrhus in 280 BCE, he remarked that he could not withstand another �victory� like that, and that comment immortalized him.

The regions of North Africa, Southwest Asia, and Central Asia are known collectively as the Middle East. A rich and culturally-vibrant civilization, its sudden disappearance from the annals of history have puzzled scholars for years. Some 15 percent of the population identifies itself with several Protestant groups. Neither party deals unfairly by the other: for they themselves never touch the gold till it comes up to the worth of their goods, nor do the natives ever carry off the goods until the gold has been taken away."
