Apollo's temple
« on: December 27, 2011, 04:54:20 PM »
Who has interest in history and philosophy knows about the ancient Apollo's temple in Delphi and the Delphi Oracle. That's the place where according to Ancient Greek Religion God Apollo has killed Python. It was considered as the Center of the Universe always guarded by Python. The Apollo through the Oracle has said: "Man, Know Thyself, and you shall know the Universe and the Gods".

Dear ramana,

Delphi's oracle is famous for one more thing.  When learned people had doubts about their philosophical conclusions, even
ordinary Greek citizens whenever they had some disputes, used to go to this Temple and ask for the God's judgement as to
which view among the disputants is correct. Delphi used to give its judgement!
