Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Universal breaches are usually not a good thing. Evaran and the gang deal with an event that changes Earth’s history. While investigating it, they come across the mention of a cosmic artifact. No one seems to know where it is or what it does other than it existed at one point. One problem is that the cosmic artifact has been linked to the Gothlics, a brutal group that delights in torturing and killing anything they can get their hands on. They appear and mutilate everything, then disappear without a trace. Another issue is that something has punched a hole in the universe. The Eight, a group of Palisin energy beings who oversee a federation with over a million civilizations, offer Murukhan, a half-Palisin alien, and his team the chance to join up with the gang to stop the Gothlics’ threat and find the cosmic artifact.

Book excerpt: Four months after the sudden death of his wife Karen, Rick Hunter still harbors resentment toward God in particular and Christianity in general. All the questions that bothered him about the life of Christ and how the Christian churches accumulated, selected, and dispersed that information resurfaced. He has always felt that the church forced their version on the people, but Karen’s faith and his love for her suppressed those thoughts. He leaves his successful family-owned financial business to link up with virtually unknown archeologists Ron Conner and LB, seeking proof that God exists. An old British sea captain completes the core team. Ron has exceptional wealth and amazing competitors. Rick joins the team, moving to a South American dig site near the boundaries of Venezuela, Guyana, and Brazil, where they discover two important artifacts. Then Ron obtains an ancient scroll from Magdala, Israel, that leads them to a dangerous underwater excavation off Santorini Island, Greece. The artifact found off Santorini splits the team. LB and Rick are sent to Ephesus, Turkey, while Ron and the captain travel to Liangzhu, China. LB and Rick find the Ephesus Stone and encounter a most unusual girl in the House of the Virgin Mary. The girl directs them to Abydos, Egypt, where she disappears, and then the Ephesus Stone is stolen. Four people are murdered as they pursue the stone in Cairo, Luxor, and Saqqâra. Next, they have to run for their lives through the streets of Cairo before recovering the stone and rejoining the rest of the team in China, where a meeting of competitors and other interested people gather to view the artifacts and their undecipherable writings. Subsequently, the artifacts are transformed into The Agglomerate with a clear message to all. Universal demand to scrutinize The Agglomerate is immense. Rick’s only trip accompanying the icon is to Erio, the most feared planet in this part of the Milky Way galaxy. This is done at the personal request of Lanth, who is the only known person from Erio. An attempt to detain LB, Rick, and The Agglomerate is averted at the last second. However, unintentionally they leave the impression that Rick must have a very special relationship with God. As The Agglomerate makes its way through the galaxy to various civilizations that are pondering the question of God’s existence, it’s apparent that some things may never change. Many are convinced The Agglomerate proves God’s presence while others believe it is a fraud. Other books by the author are the following: The Coalition, Gone, and Stringer 969.

Book Age Determination of Young Rocks and Artifacts

Download or read Age Determination of Young Rocks and Artifacts PDF, written by Günther A. Wagner and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 1998-04-16 with total page 466 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Dating the Quaternary, which covers approximately the last 2 million years, has experienced considerable progress over the past few decades. On the one hand, this resulted from the necessity to obtain a valid age concept for this period which had seen tremendous environmental changes and the advent of the genus Homo. On the other hand, instrumental improvements, such as the introduction of highly sensitive analytical techniques, gave rise to physical and chemical innovations in the field of dating. This rapid methodological development is still in full progress. The broad spectrum of chronometric methods applicable to young rocks and artifacts also becomes increasingly intricate to the specialist. Hence, it is my goal to present a comprehensive, state-of-the-art sum mary of these methods. This book is essentially designed as an aid for scientists who feel a demand for dating tasks falling into this period, i. e., Quaternary geologists and archaeologists in the broadest sense. Since it has been developed from a course of lectures for students of geological and archaeological sciences, held at the University of Heidelberg, it certainly shall serve as an introduction for students of these disciplines.

Book excerpt: This volume presents the impressive range of scholarly affinities, approaches, and subjects that characterize today's word and image studies. The essays, a selection of papers first presented in 2005 at the seventh international conference of the International Association of Word and Image Studies/Association Internationale pour l'Étude des Rapports entre Texte et Image that took place in Philadelphia, are case studies of the diverse configurations of the textual and the iconic. “Elective affinities” — a notion originally borrowed by Goethe for his 1809 novel of the same title from eighteenth-century chemistry — here refers to the active role of the two partners in the relationship of the pictorial and the verbal. Following the experimental modalities opened up by Goethe, the present volume is divided into three sections, which explore, respectively, how words and images can merge in harmony, engage in conflicts and contestations, and, finally, interact in an experimental way that self-consciously tests the boundaries and relations among verbal and visual arts. New perspectives on word and image relationships emerge, in periods, national traditions, works, and materials as different as (among many others) an installation by Marcel Duchamp and the manual accompanying it; the impact of artificial light sources on literature and art; nineteenth-century British illustrations of Native Americans; the contemporary comic book; a seventeenth-century Italian devotional manuscript uniting text, image, and music; Chinese body and performance art..

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The eighteenth-century Scottish empiricist David Hume has been regarded as a notorious enemy of religion. Still, his discussion of religion is systematic, sophisticated, and sustained. Focusing mainly on two of Hume’s works, the relatively neglected Natural History of Religion and the more widely read Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, Keith Yandell analyzes Hume’s treatment of a subject that he described as "a riddle, an enigma, an inexplicable mystery." In so doing, he explores the relationships between Hume’s philosophy of religion and his general philosophy. Hume’s "evidentialism," applied to religion, can be summed up by saying that it is unreasonable to accept a religious belief unless one has evidence for it. Since it is also Hume’s view that there is no evidence for any religious belief, he concludes that no one is ever reasonable in accepting a religious belief. Yandell examines the explanations that Hume gave for such acceptance in Natural History of Religion. Addressing the Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, he compares Hume’s views to those of such authors as Herbert of Cherbury and Bishop Joseph Butler, traces changes in Hume’s theory of meaning, and discusses the ontological and cosmological arguments and Hume’s treatment of the problem of evil. Yandell then considers other lesser known writings by Hume that are relevant to his philosophy of religion.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This lavishly illustrated volume is the first major global history of ornament from the Middle Ages to today. Crossing historical and geographical boundaries in unprecedented ways and considering the role of ornament in both art and architecture, Histories of Ornament offers a nuanced examination that integrates medieval, Renaissance, baroque, and modern Euroamerican traditions with their Islamic, Indian, Chinese, and Mesoamerican counterparts. At a time when ornament has re-emerged in architectural practice and is a topic of growing interest to art and architectural historians, the book reveals how the long history of ornament illuminates its global resurgence today. Organized by thematic sections on the significance, influence, and role of ornament, the book addresses ornament's current revival in architecture, its historiography and theories, its transcontinental mobility in medieval and early modern Europe and the Middle East, and its place in the context of industrialization and modernism. Throughout, Histories of Ornament emphasizes the portability and politics of ornament, figuration versus abstraction, cross-cultural dialogues, and the constant negotiation of local and global traditions. Featuring original essays by more than two dozen scholars from around the world, this authoritative and wide-ranging book provides an indispensable reference on the histories of ornament in a global context.
