Big. White. WHALE! (or- How educated people sometimes miss the obvious)

Lately, the church attenders in our nation have wondered how, if it’s so obvious to people like me that Genesis 1-3 are meant to be read as literal history, that so many people with college degrees have decided that it is merely a literary device meant to teach a spiritual lesson and not real history. It is something of a quandary, and I think I can clear it all up by having you ponder one facet of literary history: Moby Dick.

    Are you aware that the Beluga featured in your video – is not a true whale – is not particularly large, and – is not the great albino sperm whale that Captain Ahab pursued?? 😳

    • Thank you for your insight, but I happen to know that the Beluga featured in my video self identifies as a big white whale, and we are very open minded and progressive about our whales around here. Although, while it is true that he is not the whale Captain Ahab pursued in the end, Captain Ahab did mistake him for that whale when he spotted him in line for curly fries at Arby’s once, and it lead to a rather unpleasant confrontation. So he has some idea of what it feels like, even if he is not, as you say THE whale.
      But thank you for your comments.
