The Story of Noah's Ark jesse In Judeo-Christian mythology, one of the best recognized stories from the Old Testament is the story of Noah and the Ark, and how they survived God's great flood. This story is a common one throughout many mid-east cultures, both past and present. The most notable of these is in the ancient Mesopotamian mythology, with the story of Utnapishtim and his story of survival of the gods wrath. Though both are telling what is assumed to be a tale of the same event, there a

Literature comes in many forms. When embarking on a story?s beginning the author?s choice of narration is more than just a simple decision of first or third person. They must consider which will be a more effective window into the lives and souls of the characters and how that choice will affect the reader. Often times committing to one style will limit the ways in which the author can weave their story. This problem did not go un-noticed by Mary Shelley when she set out to write her masterpiece

One notable exception is Dianic Wicca, which worships the Goddess exclusively and only women are admitted to the covens. The Triple Goddess refers t
