, good luck and left to monitor from above To annciet humans, maybe they felt like they had done something wrong and had to take the blame for be kicked out of their home And we now have the beginnings for Genesis. People were created, they were relocated, and as most humans do, they blamed themselves for being abandoned on Earth Maybe the story of surviving in the whale was just a way of saying no matter what he did to avoid doing what he was supposed to, he ended up having to do it anyways.. How many times have we felt swallowed by a whale in life and had no choice but to do what we've sworn we'd never do? I swore I'd never do public speaking I now teach in a bachelors program part time and in person LOL.So many people take the bible literal. Yes, many of you are right, it is written by humans by human influence. Divinely inspired or not, it contains anectdotal and metaphorical ways of life. I asked a Catholic sister once Do you think Job ever existed? Her response was: I don't know. Does it matter? In all reality does it matter that the stories happened exactly, word for word as stated? Some things maybe it does, the story of Christ matters significantly. However, even there I had a baptist minister tell me, hey, each of the gospels was written from a different point of view.Each person notices different things that the other doesn't notice or pick up on at all. Yes, it could be contradiction, at the same time, it could be simply how they perceived things based on their point of view. Maybe Noah's ark was a small merchant boat, that survived a large overland flood in a small remote area of Turkey. Remembering these people don't know how big the whole world is Mayb they meant, their bubble of the world was flooded My bubble of Fargo is pretty small. I can't possibly perceive things across the globe Maybe Noah's statement of the whole world was more of the few hundred miles I travel annually to sell my goods flooded. We want concrete facts. And I hate to say this, but, there's a saying The victorious are the writers and creators of history. How many documents from fallen civilizations do we have? We can't even determine what happened to civilizations that just seemingly vanished Atlantians (if they existed), Aztecs, Incas, etc. History is cruel, and forgetful of those absorbed by other societies and cultures. We have little facts about much of our world Science can prove very little about much of our existence. Heck we don't even know what half our brains are used for or do We're still uncovering our own genetics Why do we demand such scientific fact from a 2000 year old document, when, we can't even cure the common cold? If we applied our standards for the bible to live up to, to our scientists, our research endeavors, and our societies, we'd have a much better world! For now we have to accept that much of life, our world, and the bible is uncertain, unprovable, and maybe even, unknowable If someone can scientifically prove to me exactly what is at the edge of the universe, or how do we know where the universe ends? Or is there an end to the universe? And that there is nothing out there in the entire universe showing affection to Humanity. Maybe we're just God's pets, but, I'd rather be his pet than an animal that he shoos away because we keep biting him.

I have tried clinique's line and up until that point, it was the best thing that wrkoed for my acne. It made my acne decrease but it never got rid of all of it. I used the Tea Tree Oil line for two months. It made my skin tone a lot better, it made my redness decrease, it made my skin super soft. But it didn't clear my acne. And it made me sad haha I really wanted this stuff to work. If you hve skin like mine, I suggest going to see a Dermatologist. Thats what I did after this. She told me
