Myth or Science Throughout history there have been many attempts to explain the origin and workings of our universe. Most every culture has their own cosmogony. Nearly every individual has his or her own idea of what our universe is. During our modern era of advanced scientific knowledge, we feel that we have a good grasp on how the universe works. We have our Chemistry and Physics, along with Mathematics, to examine the universe with. Any person educated in these fields will tell you that they

Take the story of The Bicentennial Man by Isaac Asimov, written in 1976, when most of the population didní

The first is the individual object complete in itself. It is the final uncha
