    God is great, GLORY TO HIS NAME!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Jon
    What happen to the man and woman God created in Genesis 1:27?
  • Dan
    It is kind of amazing to compare this with the Prose and Poetic Eddas where the brothers Odin, Vili and Ve killed the giant Ymir and created the world from his bones, the oceans from his blood and the sky above from his skull. The first man and woman, were created from two trees and called Ask and Embla. From them sprang the races of man. Almost identical storyline, just a more colorful version
