This week's assignment was to simply begin adding information to the wiki site. Explain what you added and why you added it. Then, for the sake of conversation, reply to at least one other person's post.
I added Muhammed because he started the Islam religion, which became very popular in the classical period and is now the second most popular religion in the world.
Also because of Islam and Muhammad's prophecy it was brought to attention of its possible appeal and sense of unity, making it so that many more people wanted to join its community. Later establishing empires based on their faith.
i added information on Buddhism, because I think Buddhism is very interesting religion and was worshiped by lots of people in the Classical Period.

I added information about the Latin language because although it is not spoken (widely), it is still studied and learned by numerous people.
I added Daoism because i believe it helped form China. It added naturalistic, peaceful insights of the world rather than militaristic and political views. Without it China would probably be a very violent, cruel nation.
I added Cyrus because he was the first known person to attempt to conquer the world. He came close too.
I added some info about the Hindu religious texts; the Vedas. I thought this was important to add because unlike most religions, Hinduism doest just have one main script. I thought it was interesting.
I added the Han Dynasty because someone had already put the Zhou Dynasty. And I thought the Han Dynasty was an important part of China in the Classical Period because the Han Dynasty perfected the bureaucracy.
I added a summary about Augustus Caesar because after his great-uncle's death he stepped forward as Rome's future. As the first emperor he paved the way for the empire and established boundaries never seen before in the world.
I added Shi Huangdi because he was the very first emperor and the basis for many things.
I added the idea/ belief of Dharma because it relates to Buddhism. In Classical India it was like law, and a basic guide to their religious path.
I added Ashoka because Octavius/Augustus was taken. I shall respond to another's post once someone posts something on here that is worthy of my attention.
i love your reason chris, my reason is similar to yours.
Oh, and I thought that Augustus meant sacred one, not revered one, but the information that I learned from Rome: Power and Glory and the time that I spent at Hadrian's wall might be outdated…
that is some great stuff chris..i think you'll do something great someday
I added Buddha because he created one of the world's largest religions, and Buddhism had a great impact on societies in later periods of the world.
I agree with the statement you made. They apply that and hinduism to their lives(caste system). So, yeah mhelton your right about that.
I was going to do Buddha! Thanks. But I guess that's what I get for procrastinating. You know what?…
PROCRASTERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!… Tommorow
I think I liked Buddha's history the most. The fact that he was a rich prince and was willing to give everything up to learn.
I even give people Buddhas on their birthdays because I like him so much. Does that make me weird?
I added Jesus Christ to the list because he had a big influence on Christianity and Christianity’s teachings during the Classical Period.
He didnt only have an influence in the classical period, but also today. Great choice.
I wish we had a like button….wait….this isn't facebook. haha! I like your comment. Plus, Jesus had twelve followers called disiples who were with always with him as he taught God's word. At Passover, 50 days after Jesus' crusifiction, Jesus spoke unto them saying the Holy Spirit would be with them and that he would always be with them. And with Jesus' guidance through the Holy Spirit the disiples create the first church. It's a great story. You should look into it.
nice! again the like button would be awesome here! p.s.-I would cry 2. Spiritual moments are awesome! I'm just saying. At the camp were there mostly girls or a mix between boys and girls. Cause it would be explainable if there were more girls than boys. We cry alot when we have spiritual moments….TRUST ME I kno! For 4 years I was in this sorority group at church and we're awesome friends and we cry alot during spiritual moments or when someone is going through a rough time………………….and I'm talking about girls crying…..wow…LoLz!
I added Confucius and Confucianism because they both had lasting impacts on China.
i added doaism legalism and confucianism they were the first religions of china
