In the year 350,000 B.C., refugee scientists from Mars landed on Earth as their world was already begin to die. They landed on a small island
that was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When they had landed, they began to build a base and a small city so they could recreate their
civilization. By there on Earth, they realized that they need a slave race to help with buildings of cities and the mining of metals and minerals.
A team of the Martian scientists flew to the continent of Africa to find indigineous people to be this slave race of theirs, but the only race of people
at the time were Homo Erectus. The scientists captured a few hundred of these natives and thus began to experiment on them, and with these experiments came
a new race of men, called Homo Atlantea. Over the years, this new race saw their creators as gods, and some of the scientists would interbreed with
the new of race of humanity and were also worshipped as demigods. 310,000 years had passed, a

You who test the mettle of our hearts

Your gentle kiss awakens my rebirth.

Question after question flooded his processor as he emptily stared into the glass, seeing only a human man staring back.

Aboard the Normandy, it was night and all the lights and sounds in the almost empty ship seemed muffled. As EDI could pretty much handle everything alone, they needed only a few crew members at this time. Jane Shepard loved to go through her ship at this time. Every night she visited the departments and decks, enjoyed the quiet hum until she was exhausted so that her mind had to surrender to her body and she finally could sleep.
How do you sleep, when the survival of all depended on you? Shepard knew the answer. Rarely, restless and full of terrible nightmares. She waited as long as she could, often beyond the limits of exhaustion and then only because it was necessary, because otherwise it would jeo

I never know anymore
I am joyful of this gift
Flashes of these haunting scenes...
Hot air and the laughter of priestesses and dancers
Our sistrums and bracelets chime as we sway
The sand and white buildings against the bright blue sky.
My arms and voice raised...
...singing the songs of tribute and love
Shielding my eyes from the burning sun
Mawat scolding me for not keeping covered
The smell of rich earth and water...
Wonder and peace
Running through the marshes with him
Our bows ready
The taste of wild geese...
Cinnamon skin beneath my lips
Myrrh and lotus fill the air
Mut and The Lady of the East smile upon me
Cool nights as the crescent moon hung...
Where Nut arched above us as we danced in the courtyard

A giant hawk-nosed salmon with the purple splotches of many years rushed forward beneath the school. With a sudden burst of speed he vaulted up and split the sparkling surface with amazing strength. Time slowed to a near stop as the fish rose above the others, his huge pink belly waggling from side to side, sparkling droplets of ice water fanning out around him. Aegia whipped her spear up to get it into position but just couldn't seem to move fast enough. She screamed. The sound crept like a slug up her throat. The fish twisted sideways, flopping and flowing and heaving its brilliant silver flank about until finally it walloped Aegia on the side of the head and sent her crashing backwards, arms reeling for balance, spear flying off into the sky.
Without a word, Atouk's elbow flashed backwards. It caught the guard who had snuck up behind him in the solar plexus and lifted the man up on painful wings into the air. The

Evolution is a property of passed down and copied information that allows it to change over time from mistakes made in copying processes. The information being passed down here in thia situation is obviously genetic information.

But for all his size, and all his strength, he was very, very lonely. People in the nearby villages noticed this, and even made fun of him.
"Look at that goofy Giant!"
"See how he sits there and mopes?"
"How useless he is!"
And he cried, and he wept when people called him names. One day, a young maiden escaping an overeager suitor found herself stuck in a tree. "Help, help!" she called out. "Somebody help me out of this tree!"
The Giant heard what was for him tiny squeaks, and brought his face down to the tree. The maiden screamed in terror as he lifted her up into his palm. "Help, help!" she called out. "The Giant is going to kill me!"
Instead of killing her (which was tempting, for her to assume he would do such a thing was quite rude!), he sat her down on the ground as gently as he could. She stared up at the Giant in awe

When April entered the sewer lair, she found Splinter meditating on the couch in the common room. At the sound of her footsteps he turned and looked up at her as she stood at the top of the stairs. A long, uncomfortable silence filled the room. The soft beeping and chirping of the arcade games only made the silence even louder. There were many questions Splinter wanted to ask her. He wanted to know what happened with the pigeon man, why she had come back alone, where his sons were and what they were doing, and so on. But from her dismal demeanor, her slumped shoulders and downcast eyes, he sensed that those questions would have to wait.
His furry white brows drew together in concern. "You seem tired."
She nodded her head listlessly, eyes focused on the space of floor between her feet.
Picking up his walking stick, he rose from the couch. "Come with me." He turned and walked toward the kitchen.

But what happens when our parents tell us a story to hide the truth?Yoshi's Isle6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
We are all raised being told it is a bad thing to lie. Lying is frowned upon in almost every culture and most subcultures. Stories that hide the truth ARE lies, no matter what the circumstance may be that they were created. It is ultimately better to tell a child the truth than to sugarcoat it with some fantastical piece of fiction. This isnt about keeping face; this is about being an honest person.

Except the ones who are dead

Over each and all oops

And the fighting gets done
And you get shot by guns
For the people who are still alive

I'm being so sincere right now
Even though you broke my heart
And hate me.
Tore my heart to pieces
And protested my most favorite war
As you rallied it hurt 'cause

Now these losses of lives make a wonderful war
And we're making more fives
Just ignore the gore
And so I'm glad you despise me
Think of what our country could be
For the people who are

I can deal with all of it just fine
Maybe you'll find someone else
To help us.

Reflect softly to me
Hiding in the darkness
I can gaze harmlessly
For he is my Moon

And when the world goes to rest,

Dare I look upon the Sun
My wings go ablaze
And my knees buckle beneath me
He has none of it,
And hides me in his veil
