How the Etruscans practised their religion

The Etruscans were a very religious people. Their chief gods were Tinia, Uni, Minrva, the trio worshipped by the ancient Romans later under the names of Jove, Juno and Minerva. Only some of the Etruscan gods had the power to launch thunderbolts. Tinia was one of the more powerful of the divinities.

Religious ceremonies were conducted by priests who formed a very powerful class of Etruscan society. These priests were the only persons permitted to divine or guess the will of the gods and to tell the future. They did this in various ways; by examining the entrails of sacrificed animals; by bird watching; by observing lightning and other weather phenomena ; and the ebbing and flowing of streams.

Of all the entrails the liver was studied with greatest care. A bronze model of a liver found at the city of Piacenza is divided into forty-five areas. each with the name of a presiding deity written in it. The priests who studied birds traced the will of gods from the way bird flew, cried and ate. The sign seen by these priests who known as auguries which could be either bad or good.

The Etruscan religion comprised a complicated set of beliefs and ceremonies for every act in public life. The laws relating to the foundation of the city were particularly strict.

The Etruscans believed, especially in their early days, that when they died they passed on to another life similar to the one in this world. They provided the dead with many objects of everyday life and the statues on the tombs depict people sitting at table with guests or playing music, singing or even hunting.

How King Hammurabi became famous

King Hammurabi ruler of Babylonia, is remembered in many documents as a great lawmaker and warrior. He reigned for some forty years from about 1792 to 1750 B.C., and made his capital into a city of great splendour.

By using both force and diplomacy Hammurabi extended his rule gradually over all Mesopotamia. His code of laws was a great achievement and gives us an insight into how justice was administered in Assyria and Babylonia.

Hammurabi was also great soldier and a ruthless leader with a fiery temperament. He loved war but as soon as he had unified his realm he devoted himself to peaceful pursuits and brought great wealth to the nation. His court was frequented by artists, scholars and philosophers. Babylonia became a land of beautiful palaces and buildings such as the temple of god Marduk which Hammurabi had constructed.

How justice was administered in Babylonia

We know exactly all the 282 laws in which King Hammurabi included the entire legal traditions of his day because they were found on a stele ( stone slab) discovered at Susa in 1901 and now preserved in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The laws were written on the slab in a writing known as cuneiform. The slab also has a fine piece of sculpture depicting Samas, the god of justice, looking into the eyes of King Hammurabi as if to inspire him.

Babylonian society was divided into three distinct classes; the patricians, the plebeians and the slaves. Justice depended on the class to which person belonged. For example an article in Hammurabi’s legal code said ; If a patrician takes the eye of another patrician, one of his eyes also shall be taken. If he breaks the bone of another patrician, one of his bones too shall be broken.”

If, however the person hurt was a plebeian matters were different. The law said, ” If a patrician takes the eyes or breaks a bone of a plebeian , he will pay a mine of silver.’ Of course the penalty was smaller if the slaves was involved.

These laws seem very unfair to us today but the penalties inflicted are midway between the brutality of the Assyrian laws and the comparative leniency of the Hittites. We must remember that in social conditions of Hammurabi’s day such laws were needed to curb the vices and passions of the Babylonians.

Hammurabi died but his dynasty or family continued to rule for another 150 years although it never reached the same peak of glory as it had in his day.

How the people of Assyria and Babylonia wrote

The people of Mesopotamia that is the Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians, created a system of writing that was quite different from that used in Egypt. The difference was because the people of Mesopotamia used clay to write instead of papyrus as in Egypt.

It is difficult to make curved lines on clay with a stylus so the Mesopotamians invented a handwriting based on straight lines that resembled nails or wedges. For this reason, their handwriting was known as ‘cuneiform’ a word meaning ‘wedge-shaped’. Cuneiform was later used on other materials such as stone or metal. This writing was ideographic as in Egypt, and used pictures instead of words.

How the Carthaginians practised trade

The Carthaginians had the reputation of being dishonest and thieving but this does not not seem to be borne out by accounts written by Herodotus, the ancient historian. According to him, the Carthaginians would leave their goods on the seashore along the coast of Africa and would then retire to their ships and wait until the natives came along to inspect the goods. The natives looked at the goods and left a quantity of gold behind. The Carthaginians would then gather up the gold and value it. If they did not think it was enough, they would leave it there and withdraw gain. Then the natives would come back and add more gold. If this was enough the Carthaginians would take it away and leave the goods behind.

印度科学大会超离谱 竟用神话证明千年前发明试管婴儿

论从古籍里找高科技的能力,印度人民可能是全世界最有天赋的:因为他们能从几千年前的神话中找到各种高精尖技术,宣称这是印度最早发明的…据yahoo消息,1月3日当天,第106届印度科学大会在旁遮普邦贾朗达尔开幕,这个虽然名为“科学大会”,但是来自印度各地的学者往年时常在大会上语出惊人,让人以为这是一个民科大会。

今年更是变本加厉,有人在会上引用神话故事,称印度几千年前发明试管婴儿技术,还有人点名质疑爱因斯坦和牛顿理论。其他参会科学家纷纷抨击这些荒谬言论,认为简直丢人。印度总理莫迪主持本次科学大会开幕仪式,并在开幕式演讲中发表“印度将在2022年送3人到太空”的雄心壮志。

但是一些学者睁眼说瞎话的本领让严肃的科学大会成为笑料,理论之奇葩简直可以算是“惊世骇俗”:安得拉大学副校长Rao引用印度神话《摩诃婆罗多》,在会上大言不惭“几千年前,一名母亲诞下100个孩子,这多亏印度发明的干细胞和试管婴儿技术”。接着Rao又引用另一个神话故事,脸不红心不跳地指出,数百年前古印度国王拥有24种飞机,如今他在斯里兰卡地区都还有数条飞机场跑道。

而另一场会议上,另一位学者吹牛的本事更胜一筹,他质疑爱因斯坦和牛顿的科学理论,并吹嘘他的言论比两位科学先贤言论更有说服力。这些言论不仅遭到各大媒体耻笑,同时也受到科学家和主办方严厉抨击。1月6日至1月7日,一些科学家在印度七个城市组织抗议活动,并举着写有“不要把神话和科学混为一谈”的标语,敦促这些吹牛的学者不要让印度成为“笑柄”。

就连科学大会主办方负责人也看不下去,他与这些发表言论者划清界线,并发表声明称“会议上的言论完全站不住脚”。其实此前印度总理莫迪以及一些政府官员也曾公开发表过“神话科学化”言论。如印度象神证明古印度发明了整形手术,以及代数和毕达哥拉斯定理起源于印度等。这类笑话数不胜数,这些官员、科学家全都在印度神话中找来源,把神话内容曲解成高科技发明,这种做法在全世界也只有印度独此一家。

How the American Indians came to know the horse

The Indians who lived in North America had been hunters since time immemorial. They were used to wandering across the vast prairies in pursuit of wild animals. But these Indians only became really nomadic after the coming of the Europeans.

We have often seen on western films how the Indians galloped along bareback on their horses, so it is quite surprising to learn that before the Europeans came in the fifteenth century, no horses had existed in the New World. The horse revolutionized the life of Indians and changed their ways greatly.

Horses were brought to America by the Spanish conquerors and settlers. Some of these animals escaped and began to breed in the wild, multiplying the numerous herds of the prairies and pampas. Soon there were tens of thousands of them throughout the continent. The Indians caught and tamed them and then learned to ride them. It was then that life changed for the Indians. This horse known as the mustang, brought enormous advantages; the Indian tribes could now move more easily from place to place and hunting became more effective and profitable.

声称是全球首个有报纸的国家 韩国拿出「汉字」文物作证

韩国多家媒体1月8日报道,韩国才是世界上首个每天发行报纸的国家。报道发布了被指定为韩国庆尚北道第521号物质文化遗产的“朝报”指出,这是全球第一个每天发行的报纸。报道指出,在朝鲜时代,每天早晨进行国王和大臣们的会议后,会通过“朝报所”发布当天的主要消息。汉阳(朝鲜时代首都)的“高层人士”和各个机关每天都会收到这个朝报。地方官员要在5~10天后才能收到朝报。

考虑到当时的交通情况,应该在发行朝报的工作上投入了不少资金。而朝报也是加强中央和地方联系的重要手段之一。“朝报”一词首次在朝鲜王朝实录1508年3月14日版出现过。15151年朝鲜时任国王曾表示,朝报很早之前就开始发行。虽然韩国人始终相信这个用中文制作的报纸是世界上首个每天发行的报纸,但由于没有实物,1650年德国发行的Einkommende Zeitung被认为是世界上第一个日报。但到了2017年4月,在韩国庆尚北道首次发现了活字印刷的1577年版的“朝报”实物。此后韩国人认为这个报纸比德国的报纸还要早83年,今年1月2日庆尚北道政府就把这个“中文报”指定为物质文化遗产。

中国蝙蝠惊见「新型伊波拉病毒」 可造成致命性出血

新加坡「杜克-NUS医学院」(Duke-NUS Medical School)和中国的研究人员在蝙蝠身上发现一种新的「丝状病毒」(filovirus)。这种传染性病毒会让感染的人严重出血。上述研究指出:这种病毒是在中国的「食果类蝙蝠」(fruit bats)身上被发现。它类似致命的「马堡病毒」(Marburg Virus)和伊波拉病毒(Ebola viruses),后两者曾是肆虐非洲部分地区的出血性病毒。

「丝状病毒」(特别是伊波拉和马堡病毒)能够透过感染人类器官及破坏血管,造成感染者严重发烧以及致命性的出血。 这种病毒因为在大陆云南省的勐腊(Mengla)被发现,因此又被称为「勐腊病毒」,它已构成物种间传染的潜在风险。「杜克-NUS医学院」传染病研究主任王林发(译音,Wang Lin-Fa)教授说,识别出这种病毒,有助于预防伊波拉式的疫情大爆发。

他说:「研究蝙蝠传播丝状病毒的遗传多样性和地理分布,对于风险评估和预防疫情非常重要。因为这类传 染病可以在毫无预警的情况下影响大众,造成破坏性的病毒。」 王林发说,分析显示,勐腊病毒在演化上跟伊波拉和马堡病毒有密切关系。
