Evolution of Civilization
St. Gregory's Episcopal Church in the past year has had a simply extraordinary exploration
under the broad umbrella "The Evolution of Religious Thought".
The table below is part of the information from the lecture and PowerPoint presentation on April 18.
This is fascinating for many of us, but we do have Western and Christian biases.
To help us get past that I've added Muhammad and
the Arab engineer Al-Jazari, who lived in what is now modern Turkey in the 13th century.
Let's see what we can do to better recognize evolution other than our own.
For now, instead of calling it "other", let's call it "Eastern".
If others start helping with this, we can
improve the presentation.
At present we're helped by the links to Wikipedia in this table, but there's lots more we can do.
