Fish Or Whale?

May 20

Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

(Jonah 1:17) KJV

For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth,

(Matthew 12:40) KJV

Was Jonah in the belly of a fish or a whale? Is this a contradiction in scripture? Unbelievers hoot with delight at contradictions in scripture because a whale isn’t a fish. Or is it?

Great Whales

May 19

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

(Genesis 1:21) KJV

The reptile/mammal transition isn’t evolution, there’s no passage of heritable traits from generation to generation, it’s abiogenesis.

The New “Scientific Knowledge”

May 18

Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.

(Lamentations 4:3) KJV

A new definition of “scientific knowledge” is necessary for the post-Hawking popular science (SciPop) Trekkie generation.

“Anecdotal evidence combined with probability means its a reasonable assumption.”

The Fish’s Belly

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

(Jonah 2:1-2) KJV

Jonah woke up in a dark, cramped, smelly, moist place not knowing where he was. He’d been resurrected after a harrowing experience in the interior of the Earth. That’s not the only thing that’s odd about this verse.

Spherogenetic Systematics

So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

(Ezekiel 38:20) KJV

In the book of Jonah it’s said that the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. In the book of Matthew, Jesus describes Jonah spending three days and three nights in the belly of a whale. Is this a problem?

Women are from Heaven

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

(Revelation 12:1) NKJV

Given that creation took six days at the end of which God stopped creating, and given that his creative process moved sequentially from sphere to sphere (firmasphere > hydrosphere and atmosphere > biosphere) we can conclude that the creating was completed in each sphere before proceeding to the next.

Behemoth

June 1

“Behold, Behemoth,
which I made as I made you;
he eats grass like an ox.
Behold, his strength in his loins,
and his power in the muscles of his belly.
He makes his tail stiff like a cedar;
the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
His bones are tubes of bronze,
his limbs like bars of iron.

“He is the first of the works of God;
let him who made him bring near his sword!
For the mountains yield food for him
where all the wild beasts play.
Under the lotus plants he lies,
in the shelter of the reeds and in the marsh.
For his shade the lotus trees cover him;
the willows of the brook surround him.
Behold, if the river is turbulent he is not frightened;
he is confident though Jordan rushes against his mouth.
Can one take him by his eyes,
or pierce his nose with a snare?

(Job 40:15-24) ESV

Dinosaurs are classified into two main types based on hip structure: Ornithischia and Saurischia. Hip structure relates to their origin in Hydrosphere vs. Atmosphere.

Behemoth

Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

(Job 40:15-24) KJV

For many years dinosaurs have been classified into two main types based on their hip structure: Ornithischia and Saurischia. Hip structure relates specifically to the different origins of Hydrosphere and Atmosphere.
