It is generally conceded by ethnologists (i.e., people who study the different races of men) that when races of people hold a strongly developed idea or belief, in common, there must have been an historical incident as the basis of that universal tradition. C.) This account of Creation was discovered in Eridu, twelve miles south of Ur (Columbia, p. This ancient Babylonian inscription reads, “Near Eridu was a garden, in which was a mysterious Sacred Tree, a Tree of Life, planted by the gods, whose roots were deep, while its branches reached to heaven, protected by guardian spirits, and no man enters.” * The Adapa Tablets This account of Creation was discovered on four cuneiform fragments, three from Ashurbanipal's library in Nineveh (c. C.) and the fourth from the archives of the Egyptian Pharaohs Amenhotep III and IV at Amarna in Egypt (c. C.) and refers to the Garden of Eden story (Genesis 3) (Columbia, p. It is so strikingly parallel to the Biblical story of Adam that he (i.e., Adapa) has been called the Babylonian Adam. (Vonnegut had a truly amzing gift for making the reader hate life and be depressed about life.
I embarked upon the ship with my family and kindred. Billy Pilgrim could have been delusional from his experiences from the war.... It could have been meant as simply a good story..could have had brain damage and we are witnessing the results of that brain damage.
the fact that the whole book happens after a tramatic war event shows that he isn't saying "this is how things are...
we can't control it" (as the Tralfamadorians do later); he's actually saying "humans have the ability to control their life, but the damage they do to each other is a choice they indeed make".
(I also like cat's cradle better, but i like it because i think it's more mature, and humorous).
in regards to fatalism, any well read vonnegut fan would say a common theme is his satire of that notion.
Thus, both become theories requiring faith to believe in them. Historians also agree that: * Agriculture began in the Near East (Columbia, p. Billy Pilgrim could have been delusional from his experiences from the war.... It could have been meant as simply a good story..could have had brain damage and we are witnessing the results of that brain damage.
Seeing I choose to trust God over man, my faith is in the Scriptures. Historians agree that HISTORY BEGAN in the Near East (Columbia, p. (Vonnegut had a truly amzing gift for making the reader hate life and be depressed about life.
Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.language, they were only individual pictures, so far as archaeologists have been able to establish.
In a systematic presentation of the evidences in the field of Christian apologetics, it is necessary to review the Babylonian and Egyptian records as they bear upon the text of the Scripture, and illuminate its meaning. Behind the woman is a serpent, standing erect, as if whispering to her. An inch in diameter and engraved on stone, it too is strongly suggestive of the Creation story (Genesis 3). C.) Gilgamesh, the fifth king of the Erech dynasty, which was one of the first Dynasties after the Flood, records for us a conversation he had with a man by the name of Utnapishtim (no doubt a grossly modified name for Noah) (Columbia, p. The following is Utnapishtim's reply to King Gilgamesh:“The assembly of the gods decided to send a DELUGE. )And yet, amazingly, his books also loved to delve into the miseries of life and the abject horror of life.
Early Babylonian inscriptions abound in references to a “tree of life,” from which a man was driven, by the influence of an evil spirit personified in a serpent, and to which he was prevented from returning by guardian angels. Consider the similarity of the two stories, “Adapa, the seed of mankind,” —“the wise man of Eridu,”—“blameless,” —“then he offended the gods,” —“through knowledge,” —then he “became mortal,” —“food of life he ate not,” —“sickness he imposed on the people,” —the gods said, “he shall not rest,” —“they clothed him with a mourning garment.” * The Temptation Seal (dated c. C.) This seal was discovered among ancient Babylonian tablets and refers to the Creation story (Genesis 3). On the right is a man; on the left, a woman, plucking fruit. C.) This seal was discovered twelve miles north of Nineveh. Construct it with six stories, each with seven parts. I saw his writings as being reflective of somebody that has no joy, does not know His creator, and saw like as meaningless, absurd, and useless.
a similiar notion is found in 'cat's cradle' as awful as the notion of armaggedon is, the events a wholly set in motion by human beings.
it's more about freewill, but it is definitely not supporting fatalism (and none of his books do)you say this, that makes me think you are not well read on vonnegut (but are prepared to make very assertive declarations): "(Vonnegut had a truly amzing gift for making the reader hate life and be depressed about life.
I sent out a raven; it alighted, it waded about; it croaked; it did not return. - Early Mexican accounts record for us a legend of a man and his wife and children who were saved in a ship from a Flood, which overwhelmed the earth.- Early Peruvian accounts record for us a legend of a man and a woman who were saved in a box that floated on floodwaters.- Early American Indian accounts record for us legends of between 1,3, and/or 8 people were saved in a boat above the waters on a high mountain.
