Kamasutra: An Ancient Knowledge (Part 1 – Introducing The Book)

Kamasutra is a remarkable document, giving us insights into the Indian social and political ethos some 2000 years ago. It’s considered as the worlds oldest treatise on Sex. The writings, paintings, and sculptures (Khajuraho Group of Monuments) in Kamasutra is an important source of information in understanding one of the worlds oldest living civilization.

Haunting Legends: Mae Nak Of Phra Khanong

Enduring folklore of the Thai people that have risen to legendary status in Thailand (probably the whole of ASEAN) is The Legend Of Mae Nak Phra Khanong (actually, it’s Mae Nak ‘of‘ Phra Khanong). A fierce lady ghost that would kill anyone trying to come between her (and her child) and her husband that she dearly loved.

Discovery Of The Americas: Moorish Explorers That Should Be Praised And Celebrated Instead Of Columbus

Western scholars have, by and large, dismissed the assertion that Africans had contact with the Americas long before Columbus. But scholars such as Ivan Van Sertima and Cheikh Anta Diop rejected this in the books They Came Before Columbus (1976) and The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (1974). But they were not alone. Decades before, respected Harvard lecturer Leo Wiener, a Russian-born scholar of Polish-Jewish heritage who was a polyglot skilled in more than 20 languages, noted the African presence in his 1920 book Africa and the Discovery of America.

Indiana Jones’ ‘Temple of the Sun’: The Path to Godliness?

As a child, my first exposure to Indiana Jones was in the franchise’s third installment, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. To say that the film left an impression on me would be an understatement: To this day, I still find myself captivated by bullwhips, zeppelins, and morally-ambiguous, blonde German Frau Doktors [sic]. I could literally write at length about all three of these topics, but today I want to focus on the film’s third act which takes place largely in the fictional(?) Temple of the Sun, which houses that most quintessential of MacGuffins, the Holy Grail.

Unravelling The Oldest Temple In The World: Göbekli Tepe

Religion is something that has always been a key part of man, right from the stone age days to the 21st century modern day age. Temples are places built or set up mainly for people to be able to go there freely and practice their religion in peace and after some in-depth archaeological research, it has been ascertained that the oldest temple in the world is the Göbekli Tepe (which is Turkish for Belly Hill). This ancient site is situated in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey and is not too far from the main city of Sanliurfa. The temple has an approximate height of 50 feet while being about 1000 feet in diameter.
