This story is an example of creatio ex nihilo. It shows how God created everything out of nothing. God is portrayed as being omnipotent because whatever he says basically happens. In the Bible, each time God made something, it would ‘God said’; this shows how powerful he is. Because he used to say it and it would just happen.
Summary The story of “Noah and the Great Flood” (Gn 6-9) takes place outside the Garden of Eden around 2400 BCE. Noah, the ninth-generation descendent of Adam, lived in a time when “The Earth was corrupt before God”. (Gn 6:11) This grieves the God of Israel, so he decides to destroy what he has created, but Noah found favor in the deity’s eyes because Noah “was a righteous man”. (Gn 6:5-7;6:9) The God of Israel tells Noah to build an ark, gives him specific instructions on its design, and instructs him to bring “two of all living creatures” on the ark with him. (Gn 6:14-19) For 40 days it rains; a great flood covers the earth and “everything that moved on earth perished” except for Noah and everyone with him on the ark.
I found the author using poisoning the well fallacies often in this article to get the point of anti-abortions across, for example at one point author states the proposal that would be used to fight abortion-rights in great detail “ …and that a fetus feels pain at 20 weeks” . This ending would appear to any reader as abortion disregarding a human life, of being inhumane. At another point of the article, author gets very descriptive of an abortion procedure “ …..which involves partially removing the fetus and then crushing its skull”, again this paints a picture that says abortion is a cruel and brutal procedure. Yet again author goes on to mention that hundreds of women have come forward to say they were coerced by boyfriends, husbands, and even doctors into having abortion which have caused mental health problems. I believe the author had no need to include this information since it has nothing to do with women rights to have abortion; the given information has more to do with domestic problems instead of women rights and choices.
Jason Hanna English 101-42 Collaborative Exploration Paper April 29, 2008 Abortion What is abortion? Why is it so controversial? What has everyone either choosing a definite side or staying out of it altogether? When does life really start? What is Roe vs. Wade?

Marquis believes that murder deprives the victim of a future. He believes if a fetus is killed, everything that the fetus may have been a part of, whether it be the world, sciences, or the earth, has been ruined. He ties this back to the abortion debate. By believing that killing a fetus is wrong because his or her future has been deprived, we must ask ourselves whether the fetus will even have a future, which Marquis believes the answer to always be yes. However, if we keep pressing this idea to be true, we end up going to some pretty strange places.
9/12/12 English 103 Response 3 In reading “The Women of Roe v. Wade”, by Mary Ann Glendon I notice her strong position on pro-life and anti-abortion. Her thesis is that both court cases, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the Supreme Court made a power grab that went against popular opinion that abortion is terrible under most circumstances; and made the laws against abortion extremely limited. The cases of Roe and Doe are extremely similar except in the fact that Doe hold nearly no regulation won abortion while Roe at least has slight regulation in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Certain aspects of the cases were taken advantage of including the Doe case’s definition of the word health as “well-being.” Glendon thinks that abortion
