The prompted word for this weeks Theme Thursday is enduring. Had to check up the meaning of this word, enduring, and as most words it means more than one thing. Mrsupole is absoloutely right, there are lots and lots around me that is enduring or has endured through time and I think I just found the right picture to illustrate it.
The earth itself is the most enduring although through time influenced by both forces of nature, people and animals.
Once upon a time there was ever a time when all people on earth thought the earth was flat. Galileo Galilei was condemned to house arrest for entertaining the notion that the earth revolved around the sun, and denounced as an heretic. Now we know this heresy is true, beyond a shadow of a doubt. Since man came into the world, science is a permanent phenomenon, even if the scientific findings have changed over time.
Today, there are millions of people living on earth. Communication is the key that makes it possible for so many people to interact, through images, words and speech. I think everyone saw that my picture depicts a globe.
But it is not just a glob, it is a decoration on a bookcase. Thanks to literature, we know more about our history than we had done if literature did not exist. Praised be he who invented the art of printing.
