Learn about the theory of Creationism with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.Creationism is the name given to the belief that God created the universe and everything in it, including life. In the West, the word is usually associated with the account of creation given in the book of Genesis in the Christian and Jewish bibles, but it can apply equally to the foundation stories of other religions, such as Islam and Hinduism. There are various forms of creationism, each associated with a different interpretation of scripture and with different views about its impact on current scientific thinking. The book of Genesis says that ´´in the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth”, and that the whole world was created in six days. On the sixth day God created Adam and Eve, who were instructed to ´´be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it”. The belief that the first people were created by God in his image is the reason why some creationists dispute an account of human history based on evolution.

Learn about the Seven Wonders of the World with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.2,500 years ago, people began to talk about the wondrous structures they had seen in their travels around the Mediterranean. In 222 B.C., Philo of Byzantium wrote an essay called ´´On the Seven Wonders”. The historian Herodotus had made his list a few hundred years before. But it was Antipater of Sidon, a Greek poet, who brought the Seven Wonders to life in 120 B.C. Antipater lived during the Hellenistic age, when the culture of the ancient Greeks had spread throughout the Mediterranean. Seven was a mystical number to people of this era. And Antipater’s Seven Wonders soon became tourist shrines, much like the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower are today. The various lists which survived mentioned other wonders. This created confusion around the sixteenth century when there was a renewed interest in the ancient world. While the writers of that time generally agreed on six of them, the seventh Wonder was in dispute. It was entirely by chance that the list was finalized in the middle of the sixteenth century. A Dutch artist, Maerten van Heemskerck, made a series of engravings depicting the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. As he had never visited these Wonders, he could only use his imagination to create the images but they remained the general opinion of what the Wonders looked like. This changed more recently, when modern science was able to shed further light on all seven.
