Genesis, Chapter 27

Old Worlds Isaac’s other years stretch as he continued to live honestly and quietly with God. He did not record the lessons he learned.

Human Fundamentalism

I got into an argument with a (self proclaimed) Christian who didn’t want his holy books questioned. Does he think You fit in a book? I got into an argument with an (self proclaimed) Atheist who didn’t want his learned men questioned. Don’t they demand to be questioned? I’m finally starting to see why, no […]

Age of Cities Despite Noah’s bitter end, and the first wars between fear and power, her art spread. A new age dawned.

Genesis, Chapter 9

Rainbow Covenant Noah told the survivors: “We have survived a terrible disaster. What will you do with this gift? Go back to your petty squabbles?

Genesis, Chapter 7

The Flooding Great storms gave strength to an illusion that the glaciers played no role in raising an infinite sea. The soil began to drown.
