You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not. ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ ‘Has your life brought joy to others?’_by The Bucket List movie
The Bucket List
The Bucket List is a 2007 starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman which follows two terminally ill men on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they “kick the bucket.” which is where the title of the movie comes from. Edward, played by Jack Nicholson, is a multi-billionaire with no family at all, and has lived a fairly selfish life. Carter, played by Morgan Freeman, is a poor auto mechanic, but he has a family that loves him. This scene takes place on their flight from America to Nepal to check off another item from their bucket list…seeing the top of Mt. Everest. During the long, overnight flight, the subject of God and faith comes up.

Background of Stonehenge
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England. Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks.There is little or no direct evidence for the construction techniques used by the Stonehenge builders. Over the years, various authors have suggested that supernatural or anachronistic methods were used, usually asserting that the stones were impossible to move otherwise. However, conventional techniques, using Neolithic technology as basic as shear legs, have been demonstrably effective at moving and placing stones of a similar size. Proposed functions for the site include usage as an astronomical observatory or as a religious site.
Background of The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China in part to protect the Chinese Empire or its prototypical states against intrusions by various nomadic groups or military incursions by various warlike peoples or forces.
