Darcie Darcie | 8 days ago
The U.S. Supreme Court held for the first time that public school officials may impose some limits on what appears in school-sponsored student publications. The high school paper was published as part of a journalism class. The principal at Hazelwood usually reviewed the school paper before it was published, but in this case he deleted two articles the staff had written. One of the deleted articles covered the issue of student pregnancy and included interviews with three students who had become pregnant while attending school. (There was also an article about several students whose mom had been divorced, however their names were not disclosed in the article.) To keep the students' identity secret the staff used pseudonyms instead of the students' names. The principal said he felt the anonymity of the students was not sufficiently protected and that the girls' discussion of their use or non-use of birth control was inappropriate for some of the younger students.

Darcie Originally Answered: What was the ancient hebrew definition of a day?
One revolution of the earth on its axis. I believe the Biblical account is intended by God to be taken literally; and I accept scripture as infallible. In the KJV OT, starting in Genesis, the word for "day" is yome; it occurs 1422 times in 1250 verses, according to my Bible Software program. There simply isn't space here to post all the pertinent scriptures, demonstrating the consistency of the use of wording in the language. It is a true statement that "yome" can mean a day, a season, or an indeterminate period of time...but it is ALSO true that throughout the OT, whenever "yome" is used WITH either morning OR evening in the same sentence, it is obvious from the context that it is referring to a period of 24 hours; here are a few examples OUTSIDE of Genesis, yet within the Torah (The Torah is simply The Law, or the First 5 books of the Old Testament): Exo 10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts. Exo 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. Exo 19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. Lev 6:20 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer unto the LORD in the day when he is anointed; the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the morning, and half thereof at night. Each of these verses, written in the SAME language, using the very SAME HEBREW WORDS AS USED IN GENESIS, by the SAME author, in the SAME part of the Bible as Genesis, leave NO DOUBT as to a 24 hour day...There are far too many more examples to post; Why would the creation week be the ONLY place that these words represent something DIFFERENT? The strongest structural parallel of Genesis 1 is Numbers 7:10–84. Both are structured accounts, both contain the Hebrew word for day (yôm) with a numeric—indeed both are numbered sequences of days. In Numbers 7, each of the 12 tribes brought an offering on the different days: The one who brought his offering on the first day was Nahshon, son of Amminadab of the tribe of Judah. ...On the second day Nethanel son of Zuar, the leader of Issachar, brought his offering ... On the third day, Eliab son of Helon, the leader of the people of Zebulun, brought his offering. ...On the twelfth day Ahira son of Enan, the leader of the people of Naphtali, brought his offering. ...The parallel is even stronger when we note that Numbers 7 not only has each day ( יוֹם yôm) numbered, but also opens and closes with ‘in the day that’ to refer collectively to all the ordinary days of the sequence. In spite of the use of ‘in the day that’ in verses 10 and 84, no one doubts that the numbered day sequence in Numbers 7 (verses 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, 78) involves anything but ordinary-length days, because these days lack a preposition like ‘in’. This refutes the claim that ‘in the day that’ ( ביום beyôm 23) in Genesis 2:4, summarizing Creation Week, shows that the Genesis 1 days are not normal-length. This is simply a Hebrew idiom for ‘when’ (see NASB, NIV Genesis 2:4 cf. Numbers 7:10, 84). In this structured narrative (Numbers 7) with a sequence of numbered days, no one claims that it is merely a poetic framework for teaching something theological and that it is not history. No one doubts that the days in Numbers 7 are ordinary days, so there is no grammatical basis for denying the same for the Genesis 1 days. That is, Genesis 1 is straightforward history. Hebrew scholars concur that Genesis was written as history. To interpret differently is to use linguistic gymnastics, ignore the rest of the text, and quite preposterous. Why would we pick a few sentences to make exception to common sense? It is very unfortunate in 2010, there are people and entire websites built around attempts to destroy the credibility of the Bible...Most of them attempt it without the slightest idea of what they are really talking about. Now, let's keep talking about this Hebrew language of the OT; there is NO PUNCTUATION in Ancient Hebrew!!??&$#@%* Whenever the writer wished to EMPHASIZE something, using ALL CAPS wasn't an option, neither was underlining or exclamation points....How was it done?? Repetition, repetition, repetition...And 3 times repetition is maximum. This is probably why the Bible says God is Holy, Holy, Holy (Isaiah 6:3). It states in Genesis: Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Gen 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. Gen 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. Gen 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Gen 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Remember, 3 times repetition is maximum in Hebrew, yet in Genesis, "yome" is used with morning AND evening, for ALL 6 days...This is DOUBLE emphasis to the max by using both morning and evening, and repetition SIX TIMES. Such emphasis, clarity, and repetition is used nowhere else in the Old Testament, I'd say God REALLY wants us to get this. There is also sound science to confirm this: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=... This video is about 29 minutes long and presents scientific peer reviewed, court unrefuted evidence of the age of the earth. Of course, this is very inconvenient to atheists/evolutionists. Once we have established creation week as a week in the sense we know of, Sunday thru Saturday, it is simply a matter of math to do the geneaolgies in Genesis 5, 11, and Matthew 1 to realize just how close Bishop Ussher is/was. The begats do NOT have gaps; they're just not all listed in the same chapter. Similarly, some folks wish to relate the days in Genesis to the NEW TESTAMENT reference of 2 Peter 3:8, stating that one day to God is as a thousand years, etc…This is comparing Greek to Hebrew. What bearing does the GREEK language have on Genesis, which is written in Hebrew? I know there is disagreement among mature Christians regarding this; and I gladly concede it is NOT necessary for salvation to agree upon the age of the earth....But it is exciting to me as a Christian to see the Truth of God's Word revealed; and I think it helps us mature as Christians to realize the Bible STARTS OUT with hermeneutic truth. Hermeneutical's first definition is PLAIN or LITERAL, and Genesis' truth is very simple and plain... I would remind skeptic Christians that the word "parable" is used consistently PRIOR TO a parable in the New Testament; and Genesis as a book is NOT classified by scholars as Poetry, it is part of the Torah, or Law. Therefore the poetic use of language such as metaphor, hyperbole, allegory and simile are not used and DO NOT APPLY, as they do in the Poetic books of Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon.

The Hebrew word for day can be thought of just as it is in english... it could mean a day. it could be like when an old man says in my day... it could mean "age" like a long period of time like the day of the dinosaurs, a metaphorical day. The creations didn't JUST happen in one period either day one god separated light and dark, day and night, in day 4 god was still working on this it says he was JUST then working on the Luminaries, moon, stars, sun... so how could it have been a normal 24 hour day for the first 3 days if the sun wasn't around until day 4, and the moon wasn't there either is there even a rotation to the earth yet? it doesn't say... what was there to revolve around before day 4? GOD has been in existence FOREVER he wasn't in a hurry time is NOTHING to him. there's nothig that says god didn't creat a big bang of energy, the bible says he is abundant in dynamic energy. it never says he snapped his finger and the earth had water, snap plants, snap animals snap humans, he could have spent years just on the humming bird ya know? we look at this from a human time table too often. consider that this was written by moses (who wasn't there) most likely he was given this vision in a dream, probably from the view point of a man on earth watching things unfold. so he described it in ways and terms understandable to him.
Darcie Originally Answered: What was the ancient hebrew definition of a day?
The term day (Hb 'yom') generally refers to the period from sunset to sunset. However, like the English word day, it can also refer metaphorically to an undetermined period of time. Also like English day, 'yom' can refer to a period of daylight as in, "During the day". In Genesis however, there are contextual qualifiers. * Number qualifiers - 'first day', 'second day' etc. If you say, 'back in Alexander's day' you are referring to a general period of time. But if you say 'on the first day of Alexander's reign', you are referring to a specific 24hr period. Genesis numbers the days of creation. * Genesis also attributes to the each creation day an evening and morning also qualifying the Genesis days as normal, 24 hour days. So, as "On the morning of the first day of Alexander's reign" would indicate a specific 24 hour period of time, so does Genesis indicate that the days of creation were also specific 24 hour days. There is every reason from the context to assume that the author was talking about a 24 hour day and nothing in the context to indicate anything contrary.

My definition is probably a long way from the text book definition of responsibility. It is: To live in innocence and freedom. To care for our home the Earth and to care for all the living creatures who inhabiit it.

Brandi Originally Answered: Whats your definition of cheating?
Cheating is when you cross a certain line, either physical and sometimes emotional. On an emotional level, it is natural to be attracted to someone, but you can still be in an "emotional affair." It does not mean looking at pictures, checking out the waitress, or thinking a girl/boy is hot. But when u start going out of your way to spend time with them, flirting with them constantly, and saying inappropriate things that's counted as cheating. Usually people think flirting is cheating because flirting leads to cheating. And everyone knows there boundaries when talking to people, even when over the internet. Cyber sex and phone sex, is also cheating.
Brandi Originally Answered: Whats your definition of cheating?
In my marriage, spending time with another person to fill a romantic/intimate void, whether on the net, in person, or on the phone is grounds for cheating. I do not associate with persons of the opposite sex, nor do I keep company that could potentially get me into trouble, i.e. party friends. My husband and I keep common friends (with the exception of a few) but all have been approved by both of us. Marriage is sacred (as is any LTR) and should be held with the highest regard.
