I am not a social scientist by training, but I still think it is pretty interesting to think about how much the Earth has shaped the course of human history. I guess that shouldn't be too surprising, since this planet is our home, but I think it can be overlooked. In this lesson we just touched on one small aspect. Think about how much the Oracle at Delphi affected political decisions in ancient Greece. The placement of the Temple of Apollo over a particular type of fault made it all possible. Cool, no?
