  25. At the end of this question is a link to the Chronology folder. PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THE LINK IN THIS WINDOW.  OPEN IT IN A NEW WINDOW SO THAT YOU CAN USE THE GLOSSARY TOOL OVER THERE AND INPUT YOUR ANSWERS HERE. It also appears on the Course Homepage under Tools.  HOVER over the link, RIGHT CLICK, select OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW.  Then in the new window type CONTROL F, a word-search box appears. Type “energy” in the box, use the arrows to search up and down for entries about energy.  Read them.  They are very brief.   Come back to this assignment and Explain where energy comes from, how old it is, and how it got to be in a material form on Earth. Link

Is there a difference between the “dark ages” of North Korea and that “dark age thinking” of Utahns? The scientific term for this phenomena is provincialism. Try to answer this question by using examples around you. Who around you uses Dark Age thinking?
