Feel MUCH better to get that off my chest. You know, I think until the last chapter of this book I was almost considering giving it 5 stars, and after the last chapter I was going to downgrade it to 2, such was the difference the last chapter made in how I felt about it.
Against my better judgement I'm going to split the difference even though the final chapter really ruined my over-all impression of the book. I don't know how your tagline can be 'Love-whatever the cost' and Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP it the way it ended. Ignoring the final chapter, Fericirea Mult Visată - Margareta* - Margareta 70 was You know, I think until the last chapter of this book I was almost considering giving it 5 stars, and after the last chapter I was going to downgrade it to 2, such was the difference the last chapter made in how I felt about it.
Ignoring the final chapter, there was lots about this Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP I liked. The setting at an archaeological dig in Kenya was fascinating, as was the history of the local Masai tribe and the politics between tribal law and 'white' law in the time period.
It basically ticked a lot of boxes in terms of my own interests lie. The main character is Natalie - a 20 something who joins the dig in Kenya of a renowned archaeologist Eleanor Deacon. Natalie is nursing her wounds after the death of her mother, estrangement from her father and the abandonment of her married lover and goes to the gorge to work.
An important discover is made almost immediately on her arrival and she suggests that before the scientists who made the discovery can jump the gun and publish their findings, that they compare the bones they found with more recent bones. The two doctors, unwilling to wait for proper procedure then go and raid a Masai grave, stealing bones in order to verify their findings.
The grave robbing is what sets the rest of the events of the book into motion as one of the doctors is murdered by a Masai man and Natalie is the only one who can identify that the man was in the vicinity of the murder scene. The book for me is at its most successful when it is dealing with the cultural complexities between what is acceptable under different rules of law.
There is a political under-current in the book, where you see scientists trying to broker ways in which to protect their findings, while placating two very different sides in a country on the brink of independence as both sides are attempting to get a foothold in the new Kenya and see the trial as a way to make it happen.
The characters were generally well rounded and Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP. Natalie could have perhaps been a little less self-involved I was almost at the stage of wanting to throttle her at times in the book for mentioning Dominic and perhaps a little too rigid in her thinking regarding the multiple marriages acceptable in Masai society considering she, herself, had been quite happy to engaged in a relationship with a married lover.
I would say that her appeal to the men Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP the camp was a little ridiculous, but they were in the middle of nowhere and she was an attractive, intelligent woman so I suppose options were limited considering the only other woman available was Eleanor who was in her 60's. Eleanor, the older matriarch of the archaeological world who ran her digs with an iron fist was actually extremely likeable for me, even as she riled Natalie up.
Christopher, a quiet and introverted guy seemed almost fascinated with Natalie, but he was slow to act until his brother arrived and then it almost became more about his own jealous nature than anything else. Jack was charming, and intelligent and passionate and a very easy character to like and it was easy to see why Natalie was drawn to him even if at times it wasn't always easy to see why he was drawn to Natalie.
As I said, the book does a lot right and if it hadn't been for the ending then I think I would have really loved it. Perhaps it's just me, but it really upset me a lot to not only read that she had lost her Kasubason - Various - Ambient Asia and her unborn child, but that because, through no fault of her own, she had also lost the ability to have children that Jack would then take back his marriage proposal, leaving her on her own.
Nothing like un conditional love. Jan 12, Mary Beth rated it liked it. The author had great descriptions of life on an archaeological dig site in the African bush - clearly he was writing from his own experience as an archaelogist. That part was fascinating, and I really felt like I got a good picture of the land and the Maasai culture. Having spent a very little time in Africa, I really enjoyed this aspect. However, the book was ultimately overdone, WAY too long and a bit repetitive.
The heroine, Natalie Nelson, was interesting and strong-willed and struggling with an interesting moral dilemma - which I won't give away Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP it is a big part of the storyline - but pretty one-dimensional.
Blah, Blah, Blah about her difficult break-up and family dramas. If I had to read one more instance where the her throat began to sweat due to nervous tension The romance between Nelson and the one of the men on the dig was entirely predictable, sort of cheesy dashing hero and nervous maiden stuff.
Oh dear, this was so disappointing! The premise was so good - on the verge of Kenyan independence, the claustrophobic environment of a dig in the middle of Masai burial grounds, an attractive young female doctor in the middle - but it just didn't deliver at all.
I'm assuming Mackenzie Ford is a man - well, whatever, he certainly didn't get inside the head or heart of Natalie. The prose is stilted and slow - coversations turn into lessons on Kenyan culture and history and I really didn't feel I'd Oh dear, this was so disappointing!

The Poisonwood Bible. Ultimately, I think it failed at all three. The characterization was one major reason for the book's failures. Natalie, view spoiler [had the potential to be an interesting character a sheltered twenty something experiencing the world for the first time and realizing the scope and scale of its complexities.
But as the book went on, she just became increasingly unlikeable and unrealistic. As other reviewers have suggested, she's a female character written as a man might expect a woman to think and act i.
And, for a book filled with characters with seemingly complex histories and motivations, the author puts Natalie on a pedestal, which is particularly problematic. Mackenzie Ford tells the reader that Natalie is beautiful, brilliant and broken, making her impossibly attractive to all of the straight men she encounters in Kenya.
Three different men fall in love with her having barely interacted with her. She has a clear moral compass and is strong and determined.
However, what he shows in her behaviour, and in the interactions of other characters with her contradicts the character he tells us Natalie is. Beyond the love interests fawning at her every move, Eleanor Deacon, woman-in-charge, and experienced academic, bends her rules at Natalie's urgings, because Natalie makes her see the errors in her ways.
Kees confides his deepest secret to her, because she is perfectly trustworthy. In short, Natalie's interactions with all of the other characters destroys the credibility of those other characters, because they adore her so much they change their On Sir Francis Drake - The Youngbloods - Elephant Mountain to align with her amazingness. The author seemed to want so Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP for the reader to like and empathize with Natalie that he forgot to make her likeable.

As Kakumei pointed out, the world did indeed speak one language until the Tower of Babel rebellion.
While it is quite possible that it never rained until the day of the flood, the Bible does not confirm this as so many continually state like in this article. Like I said, it is possible that that was the case. We can even lay out plausible arguments as to why we think it is so — but we do not have license to state it as Biblical fact! And anytime we overstep what the Bible definitively states, we place ourselves in a higher position of authority than we belong Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP we give ammunition to skeptics who look for things like this to attack our faith with, and doubts to believers who dig deeply into the word to learn as much as they may.
Loren Sanders Quote. To Loren Sanders: This is a very well said statement. We have to be careful not to claim this is so, because we can lose many non Christians that way. The writer who wrote in Genesis had to start out the book, so he can talk more about who God is and who Jesus, the Son will be later and how God will save us from sin.
I Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP in God and science. You Christians, be very careful in what you say and how you say it. Thank you to Loren Sanders for you wisdom in your statement. Bentley Kissell Quote. The Atlantic ocean has an average depth of 10K feet while the Pacific ocean an average depth of 15K feet. Meaning that before the Flood, the area of the Pacific ocean could still have been filled with as much as 5K feet of water before the additional water came up during the flood.
Joe Quote. The great deep is referring to the sky, that had no stars, moon, or sun at that point in time. The fountains were broken, the flood gates of heaven were opened, AND it rained. Simply explaining the phenomenon of rain. This is only one small part of the scriptures, that nearly all of the Christian world does Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP understand at all. You have been taught ignorance by those who are ignorant. Open your eyes and dare to look at what the Scriptures actually say.
I heard one believer say that he did not think God intended for mankind to understand all of what the scriptures say. That is ridiculous. There would have been no reason to create an account of what was and what is, and explain Stars - Nicole Cabell, Ricky Ian Gordon - Silver Rain way of things, if no one could understand it.
Dare to read the scriptures with an open mind, rather then the be hindered by the ignorance of those who themselves are hindered by the ignorance of those before them.
Wake up. God is not somebody who gets blindsided by the accuser of mankind every time he turns around. Nothing happens unless it goes across his desk first. It is all preordained, predestined, and it will happen just that way, regardless of your being able to understand any of it. Clark Quote. I do not see Biblical support for Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP interpretation. I will provide some passages from Scripture that support the deep being water beneath the surface of the Earth:.
Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth underblessings of the breasts, and of the womb: — Genesis And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the Lord be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath— Deuteronomy And shewedst signs and wonders upon Pharaohand on all his servants, and on all Nervous Shakedown - AC/DC - Flick Of The Switch & High Voltage people of his land: for thou knewest that they dealt proudly against them.
So didst thou get thee a name, as it is this day. The Nehemiah passage is particularly instructive, because it is referencing a specific historical event, the plunging of Pharoah and his armies into the Red Sea. Thanks again for your comments.
If you have any other comments on this issue or any other they are more than welcome. I am obviously not going to change your mind, even though the word deep was used differently in every scripture that you presented. I will say that your theory will not provide saving faith anymore then mine.
Faith is the gift of God, and those who have it were decided upon before the foundations of the world. I personally think you view things a certain way to bolster your own faith.
Of course that means nothing, since only God looks on the heart. It should be obvious that some people did not receive the love of the truth, as the book of Hebrews states. Perhaps somewhere in the life span of those who do not believe, God will do something to change that. Of course it is not Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP of the realm of possibility that he could use any portion of the scriptures to achieve what he wants. If you can point to texts that support your interpretation, please offer them.
If you feel that I have misinterpreted the verses I listed, please correct me. I am always open to Biblical correction. If you see differently please point out those verses. I do Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP see your interpretation in that scripture.
In this scripture the deep that lies under, is talking about water that lies under the heavens. Probably the ocean. It speaks of heaven and then of the deep that coucheth beneath. The 3rd one Neh. As I said, it is obvious to me that the word Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP used to describe water, wherever it is perceived to be. I say again, that in the creation, and in the flood, the word was used to describe a place that was thought to have a great body of water in it.
The sky was that place, because the writer did not understand how the system worked. Of course you will now say that God was the writer, and therefore he knew everything, but it is borne out time after time, that those who actually wrote down the scriptures, did not understand the science that was involved in the process of raining, and many other things.
Ezekiel is a good example. He described the things that he saw, Moments In Sadness - Beitthron - Hamlett Packard he did so with the knowledge of his time.
Today it would have been totally different. Like I stated, I can not persuade you, because you Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP looking at it completely different when you interpret those scriptures.
I say you are wrong, and you say the same of me. I am satisfied that we are at an impasse, and I am ok with that. It is nothing new to me. Many years of misunderstandings have made an indelible mark on the church, and those who believe that they are correct.
I am no less sure of my interpretations then you are. I am ok with leaving it at that. Have a great day. I still do not see any reference to outerspace in these verses.
The breaking open of these fountains was the supernatural event that brought forth the subterennean waters to the surface. And after the flood the fountains were restrained. The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; — Genesis And none of this makes any reference to outer space.
If you can point out the outer space references or the scienfitic errors that are recorded I would be happy to look at them. OK One more try at this. Genesis 1 Moses of course is the writer.
It is described the way he sees things in his mind. In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth, and the EARTH was without form and void; and darkness was upon Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP face of the deep. And the spirit of god moved upon the face of the waters. Obviously the word earth here was used to describe the planet, not the ground itself, since that did not happen until the 9th verse. The deep apparently was Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP about the water itself, since that was all that was apparent until the 9th chpt.
That does not happen until the 4th day. So to keep from getting side tracked, let us jump to the 6th verse. MOSES writes. And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so.
It is obvious that Moses thinks there is a lot of water up above the sky, or the heaven. That being the case, it is reasonable to think that he is speaking of that Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP when he says the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the floodgates of heaven were opened, and it RAINED. And God said, let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto ONE place, and let Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP dry land appear; and it was so.
The fourth day deals with the creation of the Sun, and Moon, and the stars, which appears to be about 3 days late, since day and night had been observed for 3 days already.
Let us jump over to the 2nd. Here it states that God had not caused it to rain, yet a RIVER went out of Eden and watered the garden, and split into 4 heads of other rivers. It names those rivers, and we can recognize some of You Offend Our Chief - Various - Xerox Pudding today.
We know that a river is a stream that is fed by smaller tributaries, that drain Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP rain off of the higher grounds. Of course we are led to believe by the former scriptures, that it had not rained, and it is believed by most followers of the bible, that it did not rain until the great flood.
Then of course it could mean that God had not caused it to rain in the garden of EDEN, but since something had to make those rivers, it had perhaps rained everywhere else. Since God has never been seen by man, according to scripture, the word had to be who Adam walked and talked to in the garden, or we can depend upon a writing that is inadequate to base or beliefs on. In my heart I know that the creator of all things can best be described by the laws of physics.
Those laws govern all of creation. Of course we say God does that. Of course you now see my point regarding the description of God. Those writers were hampered by their lack of Tales Of The Fallen - Kit Soden - Like A Dancer Unstrung, and more then likely those of us who try to explain our surroundings today, will be found lacking sometime in the future.
None of this negates what we can see by looking around Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP. It is still just as obvious today, as it was in the beginning, that someone created everything we can see and the things we cannot see. Exactly how, will remain a mystery for the time being. Perhaps God will let us in on the mystery when we see him face to face. Awesome read! I would like to know, however, what you use to base your belief that the dinosaurs may have been extinct long before the flood in your reply to Lui.
I ask because after hearing the explanation that dinosaurs were in their youth while on the ark, it made sense to me. I had never heard the theory that perhaps they were already extinct. Davis Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP. Dabvis — Thanks for Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP question. In Genesis 1, Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP find the Earth in state of chaos:. In the beginning Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP created the heaven and the earth.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Why was the Earth in this condition of being completely flooded? And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. Notice that the world was in a chaotic, water-flooded state here because of judgment of God.
Interestingly, Genesis chapter 7 uses similar phrasing as Genesis The Hebrew word is the exact same one from Isaiah So this again gives a subtle implication that something took place before the creation of humanity that led the Earth to be without form, as opposed to being created formless which would contradict Isaiah We also know with certainty that there were at least events in the angelic realm before the creation of humanity:.
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Angels sang in praise of God when the Earth was created which means inherently that their existence predates humanity.
So again, it is possible that some events took place on this newly created Earth before Adam. God repeats these instructions to Noah before the flood of Genesis And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
Why was this stressed to Noah? I would submit that in the days of Noah there were all sorts of hyrbid creatures on the Earth after the invasion of fallen angelic beings who took human wives in Genesis 6. The genetic order of the Earth was severely out of whack in the days of Noah. And thus creatures who were never intended by God were not brought on to the ark.
It was a return to the natural order God intended. Again, I offer this for prayerful consideration. I am not dogmatic about dinosaurs in the Bible at all. As I said in my comment to Lui — even if dinosaurs were on the ark, it is something totally feasible from a Biblical and scientific standpoint.
I hate to digress from your original topic by discussing this new topic. Is there perhaps Ann email address where we can continue our discussion without diverting attention from the original? Thanks for the comments. And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and Wont You Please Say Goodbye - The Beatles - Thirty Days of heart: 29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall Clouds Above The Highlands - The Stain - Deep Beneath EP thee.
He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived. Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of Le Temps De La Rengaine - Serge Lama - A La Vie A LAmour and the shadow of death; 22 A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any orderand where the light is as darkness.
I form the light, and create darkness : I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord!
End times passage. The final judgments of God compared to darkness. Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. So going by Scripture, there is ample support that the world we see in Genesis is one that has suffered judgment of God — flooded and in darkness.
These are both clear signs of God arriving to judge. Unknown February 26, at PM. Anonymous March 15, at AM. Anonymous April 13, at AM. Anonymous July 18, at PM. Unknown July 24, at AM. Anonymous November 29, at AM.
