    I kinda wondered.... thanks Brum.

    My apologies, Jordan -- I THOUGHT you had more sense than that!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    They might not even ever notice it since 90% of them seem to post in Nat. Sci. 301 all* the time.

    ETA: *Okay most of the time anyway.

    I think that is pretty much the point of the whole discussion.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    What? That there are people out there that won't accept that explanation, so we have to come up with more explanations?

    well to play devil's advocate, it is likely that the figure of speech "four corners of the earth" came from the bible. That doesn't mean it WAS a figure of speech in the bible. Kinda like "the writing on the wall" is a figure of speech but it comes from the book of Daniel chapter 5. We get a lot of figures of speech from the bible

    If you read the OP, it shows that this expression comes much earlier than that. Also, to take it in a wooden literal sense conflicts with many other quotations from the Bible, such as the ones with "circle of the earth" in them.
