FICTION


The devil made a big mistake. Years ago, he branded Shadow's father Abaddon a traitor, guilty of conspiring with the angels and currently tortures him in the lowest circle of Hell. The demon Shadow vows to rescue his father, but has always wondered if the rumors were true. After all, his father did give him Michael the Archangel's short blade before he was dragged off by the devil's army.
Leech has always been picked on and bullied by the other demons. His father is a lowly minor demon in General Cain's armies and has little hope of advancing. Despite his small size, Leech knows he was meant for great things and refuses to let larger demons get in the way of his ambition and hunger for power.
Denied a life of ease and luxury, Lilith trained herself to fight with a single goal in mind: killing her mother. Lilith was raised by the minor demon, Panic, despite the general consensus that she was actually the daughter of the major demon of lust, Vixen. Vixen refuses to acknowledge her and Lilith plans on making her pay for it.
Follow Shadow, Leech, and Lilith on their journey to become minor demons.




The war between the six major demons rages on. Before they can attempt to save Shadow's father, Shadow, Leech, and Lilith must change the course of the battle and fight powerful demons and nephilim. Join Shadow, Leech, and Lilith as they acquire new powers, new allies, and new enemies. Middle Demons incorporates elements from the Bible, Dante's Inferno, mythology, and angelology / demonology into compelling dystopian fiction.











Shadow, Leech, and Lilith join forces with the angels to take on the growing nephilim threat on Earth. Shadow's father, Abaddon, continues to corrupt and destroy the world that both the angels and demons rely on. Changing circumstances reveal that the angels may not be the allies that Shadow had hoped they were and the nephilim may not be their enemies.



Bumalin is a demon-in-training with a pretty good memory and a knack for manipulating those around him. With a tendency to break the rules, Bumalin quickly finds himself with strange new powers and is threatened by other demons and a new, growing threat: the nephilim. This Angels and Demons prequel follows Bumalin before he aided Shadow, Leech, and Lilith.













HISTORY


Many historians in the past have seen Constantine as a secret pagan who used Christianity as a political device or a God-sent Emperor who converted a whole nation to Christianity. Since Constantine's personal beliefs allowed for both paganism and Christianity, he created an Empire of tolerance or a religiously neutral realm (as far as what you wanted to believe). The model set up by Constantine was successfully continued and utilized to keep the Empire together with the notable exceptions of Julian (who tried to move the Empire back to paganism) and Theodosius (who allowed Christians to harass pagans, outlawed many elements of paganism, and eventually had to fight the pagans on the field of battle).


The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw the emergence of a new threat to government and organized society. Privateers and pirates raided along the coast of powerful countries and were, at times, at war with England, France, and Spain. They developed their own system of rules, a code of morality, and a very rough form of government. Pirates were eventually able to organize behind a captain who eventually would become like a governor with judicial power over all the pirates and control over settlements taken by the pirates in raids.


This article explores one of the great Indian's of our time who successfully used the skills he learned at Carlisle to fight for the Indian way of life. His actions and arguments were ultimately responsible for the Indian New Deal and had a very heavy influence on the United States at the time.


This article explores the idea that L'Anse aux Meadows could be the gateway to the Viking Vinland settlement mentioned in the Scandinavian sagas and possibly founded by Leif Ericson. L'Anse aux Meadows is still the only widely accepted evidence of pre-Columbian contact with North America.


The use of intercessory beings in prayer hasn’t always been the normal accepted practice. As Christianity and paganism began to merge under the rule of the Byzantine Empire, many elements that existed within paganism were “Christianized” and adapted for use by the Church. This article will trace a possible origin for the use of intercessory beings in Christian prayer and will use evidence from the scriptures and non-canonical Christian books to weigh the use of intercessory beings against prayer directed specifically to God. Sources include the Book of Tobit, the story of Joseph and Aseneth, the Book of Daniel, the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, and the appearances of the Archangel Gabriel in the New Testament.


This is a brief article that explores the early state of affairs when the Latter-Day Saints (or Mormons) arrived in Utah. The government operated as a theocracy with Brigham Young, the Prophet, acting as the governor. Trace elements of a theocracy linger in the church's structure to this day. The second brief article compares the thoughts and ideas of Gregory Palamas (Eastern Orthodox monk and later an Archbishop) on the subject of God with that of other philosophers. It compares and contrasts the relative strengths and weaknesses of each perspective. Palamas was a monk (and later an Archbishop) in the Eastern Orthodox church.
