      Last night, while I lay thinking here, some Whatifs crawled inside my ear...

        ...and pranced and partied all night long
        and sang their same old Whatif song:
        Whatif I'm dumb in school?
        Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
        Whatif I get beat up?
        Whatif there's poison in my cup?
        Whatif I start to cry?
        Whatif I get sick and die?
        Whatif I flunk that test?
        Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
        Whatif nobody likes me?

        Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
        Whatif I don't grow taller?
        Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
        Whatif the fish won't bite?
        Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
        Whatif they start a war?
        Whatif my parents get divorced?
        Whatif the bus is late?
        Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
        Whatif I tear my pants?
        Whatif I never learn to dance?
        Everything seems well, and then
        the nighttime Whatifs strike again!

        Since societies were naturally prone to put their smartest people in charge of the central bank, central banks also quickly doubled as centers of learning. See our article on Temples - The beginning of human societies.

        These things are obviously alluded to by Luke as he writes that Gabriel was sent to Mary of Nazareth to tell her about her imminent pregnancy in the sixth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy in the sixth month of the year (Luke 1:26, 1:36). Both parents of John the Baptist had been outstanding members of the priestly tribe of Levi and father Zacharias even held priestly office.

        In obvious contrast, Joseph was a technician or assembler — no, not a carpenter; see our article on the noun τεκτων (tekton) — of the family of David of Judah. David's most enduring legacy was one of scholarship and wisdom...Solomon started building the temple in the spring month Ziv and concluded it in the autumn month Bul, six months (and seven years) later (1 Kings 6:37-38).

        But a perspective drawn from the sun itself allows a view upon every local position possible. The great library of scientific theory provides that heliacal perspective: all scientific truths are true all the time for anyone, irrespective of the observer's personal perspective and location or even mood.

        (The thief in the night)
        And the darkness could not bring it down
        The Word of God is not a religious phenomenon but a cosmological one, initially supernatural (as its most rudimentary form necessarily supersedes all of creation) but paranatural is its fullness. It's the summary of whatever brings forth, maintains and describes the whole of physical reality

        Mankind's most pressing endeavor is to learn what works and what doesn't, and that and only that is what the Bible writers were concerned with (1 Thessalonians 5:21). Knowledge of what works leads to prosperity, peace and reverence for nature, for man and ultimately the Creator. Ignorance of what works leads to enormous losses of energy, wealth and hope.

        "The author of humanity's origin story had Adam "name" the creatures God had made (Genesis 2:19), which is an enormously insightful way of indicating the beginning of humanity's conceptual thought. Language and thus conceptual thought is what truly sets humanity apart from the animal world, and prior to the invention of the name there was no major discernable difference between humans and animals."

        "The Hebrew word for name is שם (shem), and its unusual plural form is שמות (shemot). The more common plural would be שמים (shemayim), the word for "heavens." Also note the striking similarity with the verb νεμω (nemo), meaning to deal out, dispense or parcel out. Its derived noun νομος (nomos) is the common Greek word for law, or תורה (torah) in Hebrew.
