The American Bald Eagle

I chose the American bald eagle because it is one of the
fastest and strongest species of eagles. It is the national
symbol. The Congress adopted it as the national symbol in
1782. I think it was adopted as the national bird of the
United States because the Roman soldiers used the eagle
as a symbol of courage and power. In the early 1800's,
Americans called the Bald Eagle, the American eagle. Here
is some of the biology of the Bald Eagle. Bald Eagles do a
very good job at their part in the food web. Bald eagles
also have an interesting name. The scientific name for bald
eagles is Haliaeetus leucocephalus. The family order is
accipitridae and falconiformes. The young of bald eagles
are called eaglets or eyasses. Bald eagles are
warm-blooded and breathe oxygen from the air. A female
will lay 1 to 3 eggs every five years, with at least 1hatching.
Although all Bald Eagles are consumers, none of them eat
plants to get their chemical energy. Some birds in the eagle
community are African fish eagle, Stelleris sea eagle,
white-bellied sea eagle and the palm-nut vulture. Bald
eagles, out of all eagles are carnivores; they eat fish, there is
no such thing as a herbivore or even an omnivore Eagle.

This is due to the continuous control that the Gods exerted on all human beings. The Gods determined their fate and if humans tried to change their destiny and thus their character they were punished. The Gods required justice and never let someone go unpunished.

    Character Influences on Bilbo in The Hobbit Usually in life, once you conquer evil, you become mightier and more confident in yourself. As a result it prepares you for further occurrences with evil. This was the case in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel, The Hobbit. Throughout the novel, Bilbo is greatly affected by the characters and groups he meets. Each character or group increases Bilbo’s confidence and prepares him for the final battle with Smaug.

Since this can\'t be accomplished in a few lifetimes, creationists claim that "proving" evolution is impossible. This argument totally ignores the enor
