Beginnings at the Library of Congress. The origins of the Universe, humanity and society as viewed by different cultural and religious traditions; and their attempts to explain it all.
The Talk.Origins Archive presents a more scientific view of physical and biological beginnings.

Nice find. Another goldmine for this sort of thing is pantheon.org's Encyclopedia Mythica. (Not so many pretty pictures though).

plep, I couldn't access the Library of Congress site either yesterday or today...do you think we broke it? The topic looks great, but it may explain the muted reaction to this post.

I still can't reach it, but it's doubtlessly a significant post, and I look forward to a more bandwidth-friendly period.

Thanks in advance, plep, for what will be (assuredly) another great post.

It seems that the LoC site is down. (It was working when I posted this, I assure you). Never mind.

It's up! It's up! Quite appropriate, really. It was worth waiting for. Cheers, plep!

The LoC site (not just this part of it) was, indeed, down from Saturday night until Sunday afternoon. Everything's back up now.
