The book of Genesis, "is not literal".

So..

There is NO NEED, to try and explain it.

It is "teaching stories".

The literal stuff, starts in the book of Exodus.

With the Moses and Pharaoh story.

The "Ark"

Is actually

COMMONLY thought of

As Jesus.

Note, the wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah%27s_Ark

Quote.

Interpretations of the ark narrative played an important role in early Christian doctrine. St. Hippolytus of Rome (d. 235) sought to demonstrate that "the Ark was a symbol of the Christ who was expected", stating that the vessel had its door on the east side – the direction from which Christ would appear at the Second Coming.

End quote.

So, the Ark

Is Jesus.

In fact, my name, even says it.

Mark

i.e. Mark the Ark.

I must admit, I am a diabetic, and Mark is right. Cinnamon really does help regulate my blood sugar. No matter what I eat for breakfast, it almost always get cinnamon (my usual morning meal is oatmeal with cinnamon and tofu mixed in, with some fruit on the side). I also use cinnamon alot in other stuff just as an excuse to eat more of it.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Excellent quote mining from wiki regarding Hippolytus. Shakira teaches you well. In that same paragraph it notes "On a more practical plane, Hippolytus explained that the lowest of the three decks was for wild beasts, the middle for birds and domestic animals, and the top level for humans, and that male animals were separated from the females by sharp stakes so that there would be no breeding on board."

If Hippolytus believed it was allegory only he wouldn't have gone into such detail. But then you really aren't interested in facts since within your unbalanced mind, facts are unnecessary and inconvenient to your delusion.

You are also off-topic anyway since this thread is about cheese.

It looks like the 2013 world cheese championship is coming up. Here are the results from 2012 to get you saliva glands going: World Championship of Cheese

Yes.

Oatmeal, with "cinnamon added".

Is listed as a "treatment for diabetes".

In the last paragraph of

http://thenewholybible.org/the_composition_of_manna.htm

"As to the composition of the miracle health food "Manna", the cure for obesity and diabetes".

Quote:

**Cinnamon and ginger work by effecting your insulin sensitivity. In reality, cinnamon makes you fat, ginger makes you skinny, and they both taste good. It is your choice. However, if you feel that you or your children are already at your ideal weight, you would probably not want to add either of these ingredients.

Note, for diabetics however, cinnamon happens to be a particular boon to helping reverse most of the effects of that disease. (And you can use it without making yourself too fat, it just lowers your high blood sugar levels to a more normal range, not generally "too low", causing food cravings.) In the case of a diabetic, cinnamon would be by far the best thing for you. And you can confirm that by doing a little research using the two keywords "cinnamon diabetes", cinnamon has a miracle reversing effect on diabetes that you should explore and be well aware of. For a diabetic, a daily cinnamon flavored manna porridge can practically cure you. The cure for diabetes? Hmm.. For some people, the simple answer is yes. Studies show that daily cinnamon usage lowers your high blood sugar levels by about 25%, and if that cures you? That cures you. And all diabetics can now have more minimal symptoms, probably no symptoms at all. FYI.
