    Alright. Rock and a hard place, right here. We’ve deleted all the questions we can, and we’re picking a new one. Ummmm…How about something about Kingdom of Heaven? Just a thought.

    Aside from that, the new questions are from 27 on, and I thought, well actually Marisa thought, that we should each pick a couple of different questions and find the answer to them, ans then we can all get 100%. Yay!

    So, my one question that Im answering is…#29
    Sophia means wisdom…

    For those who didn’t get the answer for my question last time, hear it is cause I’m such a nice guy.


    What is the difference between the Indo-European and Semite origins?

    Indo-European: they believe in many gods and they believe life is in a circle and is never ending (Buddhism, Hinduism)
    Semite: they believe in one God and they believe life is a line with a beginning and an end (Christianity, Judaism, Islam)

    The religions in parentheses may be important to get the 5th and 6th marks because this question is worth 6 marks.
