Give two reasons that the invention of the cotton gin served to increase the differences between the South and the rest of the nation.
When Eli Whitney first invented the cotton gin, the demand for cotton in the textile mills in the North immediately increased, so the south started planting much more cotton. Because of the cotton gin, the South decided that they don't need to build any factories like the North. To make the process even faster, they started buying and using more slavery. And the North strongly disagreed with the South about the slavery issue and caused an enormous gap between the North and South.
Compare and contrast Unitarianism and transcendentalism.
The only similarities that Unitarianism and transcendentalism has is that both philosophies are wrong and both religions denies the miraculous. Unitarianism does not believe in Trinity and the fact that Christ is God. To them, Jesus was just a great religious teacher in the Biblical time. They also believe that Jesus never died on the cross to pay for our sin. They teach that man just needs to live simple and right to please God. The transcendentalism philosophy is more liberal and un-Biblical than Unitarianism is. This teaches that all men are good and are able to become perfect. Transcendentalism also says that God already lives inside every person.
