The Religions of India What is it? Where did it spread? Look here Background Siddartha Gautama Life of priviledge Why is there suffering in the world? TheMain Principles The Four Noble Truths The Noble Eightfold Path The Middle Way Theravada Buddhism spread... Theravada Buddhism states that only the most dedicated seekers will achieve Nirvana Mahayana Buddhism also spread from Tibet... Mahayana Buddhism was more approachable for ordinary people who began to diefy the Buddha... Buddhism gradually split
into two distinct sects It's influence declined in India
since Hinduism simply absorbed it
into its existing pantheon. While it owes its roots to Hinduism,
Buddhism is radically different
in three main ways: Tied to Hindu religious beliefs Each caste was a different species of being
affected by the law of Karma The belief that upward mobilty occured after death
insured social order during life. 1. No extremes
2. No caste
3. No God(s) -No physical pain to achieve union with the cosmos -Must devote oneself to the "middle way" -achieving moksha can be achieved in a lifetime -Anyone can do it -It's self explanatory isn't it? ...to Korea & Japan ...to Southeast Asia & Sri Lanka ...in Tibet Unit one: How do we know what we know? So....my first question is "where did humans originate?" There are two answers that we'll
study in this unit: Answer #1: The religious answer Answer #2: The scientific answer The creation story Enuma Elish Rig Veda Genesis The Silmarillion 2001:A Space Odyssey Unit 2: What is the neolithic revolution and why is it so revolutionary? Darwin Hominids Culture 1. Charles Darwin & Alfred Russel Wallace formulated the modern theory of biological evolution of the species. Similar species were related to one another NOT created separately. demonstrated the method how small differences were transmitted from generation to generation. 2. Darwin published his finding in 1859. The books was called "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection" Challenged humakind's conception of life on Earth. Stated that the pressure for an organism to compete, survice, and reproduce created a "natural selection" or Survival of the fittest" 3. In 1871, Darwin publiushed his book :The Descent of Man" and extended his argument to the evolution of Humans Thus, the search for the
"Missing Link" began. In 1856, workers found bones in the Neander Valley in Germany. In 1863, Thomas Henry Huxley argued that these fossils were the "Missing Link"
The bones were called Homo Neanderthalensis But they were not the "missing link" as dicoveries were made from Indonesia to Africa. Ardipithecus Ramidus
Homo Sapiens Discovered in 1994, it is the oldest complete fossil yet found.
It pushes the date of a common ancestor back to 10 million ya.
It was bipedal & disproves the "shrinking forrest theory" Homo Habilis apparently eveolved while Australopithecus Robustus & Australopithecus Afarensis died out. Why? AH&R: 2010-2011 Multiple Gods Marduk slays the rebel leader Humans grow from blood of slain gods Violent There are two versions Who cares? Dismembered giant Purusha Reinforces the caste system One, all powerful God created everything Humans are in his image Fiction One, all powerful God created the word and first beings The first beings (Ainur) created humans A film & a book Humans evolved from apes The Monolith triggered the evolution complex social structure
art The Neolithic revolution Mesopotamia Nile valley Harappan it means Agriculture! the basic flow chart is: Nomadic to agricultural village to towns to cities to city sate to empire. video on the neolithic revolution

Sets the pattern for the development of civilization other civilizations Agriculture + people= city
city+ walls= security
security+ lost of people = creativity
creativity= the tenents of civilization government Trade Trade leads to social hierarchy, writing.
writing leads to laws and religion differed from Mesopotamia How? can't decipher writing so not much is know
for certain. Can infer though. Examples?
