Genesis 1:1-31 (King James Version)

In the beginning God created * the heaven and the earth. 

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 

And God said , Let there be light: and there was light.  

And God saw * the light, that it was good: and God divided * the light from the darkness. 

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.  And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said , Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.   

And God said , Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together  unto one place, and let the dry land appear : and it was so. 
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas and God saw that it was good. 
11 And God said , Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.  
14 And God said , Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.  
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.  
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,  
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.  
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.  
20 And God said , Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth , which the waters brought forth abundantly , after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  
22 And God blessed them, saying , Be fruitful , and multiply , and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.  
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.   
24 And God said , Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.  
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 
26 And God said , Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth,and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful , and multiply , and replenish the earth, and subdue it : and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 
29 And God said , Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life *, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 
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.Bible VersionsKJVGenesis2The Book of Genesis

Genesis 2:1-25 (King James Version)  
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished , and all the host
 of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made ; 
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
  3.And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he 
had rested from all his work which God created and made.  
4. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they
 were created , in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

  1. 5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grewfor the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;and man became a living soul.8And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed .9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food;the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted , and became into four heads.11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.And the fourth river is Euphrates.15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keepit.16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying , Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat :17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereofthou shalt surely die .18And the LORD God said , It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought themunto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field;but for Adam therewas not found an help meet for him.21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept : and he took one of his ribs, and closedup the flesh instead thereof;22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.23And Adam said , This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed .
  2. Genesis 3 (King James Version)  

    1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made . And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said , Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said , Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die .4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die :5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened , and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes,and a tree to be desired to make one wise , she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat , and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat .7And the eyes of them both were opened , and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together , and made themselves aprons.8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?10And he said , I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid , because I was naked; and I hid myself .11And he said , Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat ?12And the man said , The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree,and I did eat .13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done ? And the woman said , The serpent beguiled me , and I did eat .14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go , and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.16Unto the woman he said , I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.17And unto Adam he said , Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee , saying , Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken : for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return .20And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them .22And the LORD God said , Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat , and live for ever:23Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken .24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way , to keep the way of the tree of life.

  • Genesis 4 (King James Version)And Adam knew * Eve his wife; and she conceived , and bare * Cain, and said ,

    I have gottenman from the LORD. 2. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, 

    but Cain was a tiller of the ground.3And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offeringunto the LORD.
    4And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD hadrespect unto Abel and to his offering:5But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect . And Cain was very wroth , and hiscountenance fell .6And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth ? and why is thy countenance fallen ?7If thou doest well , shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well , sin lieth at the door.And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.8And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, thatCain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him .9And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said , I know not: Am I mybrother's keeper ?10And he said , What hast thou done ? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from theground.11And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;12When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.13And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear .14Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I behid ; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass , that every one that findeth me shall slay me .15And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.16And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.17And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived , and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.18And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael and Methusael begat Lamech.19And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of theother Zillah.20And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.21And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.22And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.23And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.24If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.25And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew .26And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

    From Adam to Noah

    1This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likenessof God made he him;2Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the daywhen they were created .3And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after hisimage; and called his name Seth:4And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begatsons and daughters:5And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died .6And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:7And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons anddaughters:8And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve * years: and he died .9And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:10And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen * years, and begat sonsand daughters:11And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died .12And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel:13And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sonsand daughters:14And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died .


  • 15And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:16And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sonsand daughters:17And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred * ninety and five years: and he died .18And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:19And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:20And all the days of Jared were nine hundred * sixty and two years: and he died .21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:22And Enoch walked with God after he begat * Methuselah three hundred years, and begatsons and daughters:23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred * sixty and five years:24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.25And Methuselah lived an hundred * eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:26And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred * eighty and two years, andbegat sons and daughters:27And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred * sixty and nine years: and he died .28And Lamech lived an hundred * eighty and two years, and begat a son:29And he called his name Noah, saying , This same shall comfort us concerning our work andtoil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed .30And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred * ninety and five years, and begatsons and daughters:31And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred * seventy and seven years: and he died .32And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
    1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters wereborn unto them,2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wivesof all which they chose .3And the LORD said , My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh * : yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God camein unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty menwhich were of old, men of renown.5And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imaginationof the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.7And the LORD said , I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; bothman, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I havemade them.8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, andNoah walked with God.10And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt ; for all flesh had corrupted hisway upon the earth.13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled withviolence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.14Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it withinand without with pitch.15And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundredcubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.16window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.17And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die .

    149.6 million kilometers (1 AU), though the distance varies

    as the Earth moves from perihelion in January to aphelion

    in July.[27]  At this average distance, light travels from the 

    Sun to Earth in about 8 minutes and 19 seconds.

    12-21-2012 Pastor Arnold Murray showing of Genesis 1 which on my DVR was cut

     to 8 minutes and 3 seconds during an Emergency Broadcast Alert

     Adding that show to the things I learned from Arlington Man and what science

     knows about the katabole. I felt like it was an inspiration and gift, especially if after

     learning about the 3 ages, you still have any doubts as to the science of his argument.  

    I feel led to share this knowledge with the world, as it is razor sharp & brings up history 

    that is not taught openly in the world.  1492 (World is not flat anymore, First Conclave for a Pope &

    all of the Jews are kicked out of Spain and Spaniards make their way to San Miguel - San Diego. 

    It does cut both ways, as science seeks to explain the truth, yet leaves out the biblical truth proving

    that indeed, God has foretold us all things.  Shocker # 1.  The earth is a lot older than 6,000 

    years, and the BIBLE AGREES The First 3 verses of our bible reveal that all of us lived before, 

    what happened to cause the end of earth age.  (Spain Created the El Camino Royal  - 

    The Royal Road and created the California Mission System)

    Arlington Man - Channel Islands

     National Park Oct 16, 2012 – The 

    following was written by Dr. John R. 

    Johnson, Curator of Anthropology at 

    the Santa Barbara Museum of

     Natural History. 

    The bible teaches that our earth is
    millions of years old, the  thus
    world is much older than 6000 years,
    taught by Christian Pastors World Wide. 

    Eve did not eat an apple, sons of light
    and sons of darkness, the reasons,
    the plan and the details are below. 
    Open and unfold the word of GOD... 

    Discover, we all have lived before. 
    If you have doubts on the 3 Earth Ages, the Overthrow - Katabole.

    What does it all mean?  There is more than enough proof to know the Katabole has happened,
    it seems around the year 13,000 BC. These 3 verses of our bible have more information in 
    them than nearly the rest of the book.  We will have had 3 world - heaven ages, and as of 12-25-2012
    are in the second earth age.  

    12-21-2012 was the next great "Feareligion" super lie to crack the faith of believers around the world.

    Yet, its beautiful that as the Mayans taught to watch for the 8 minutes of pure energy to flow down,

    sat in the sun that day, soaked it up and then later that night found this 2 hour show.  

    That night I flipped on my TV and the 12-21 Shepherds Chapel show on my DVR, cut off at 8 minutes

    and 3 seconds. I feel God wanted me to find out the truth, as the new

    ancient aliens season @ 9 pm  began 12-21-2012

    This is after pushing the 12-21-2012 fear - "End if the world or the return of the Serpent God"

    theories.  It opens with Pyramids of the world, energy theories, followed up by America Unearthed.

    Which shows Paleo & Mayan Pyramids in Georgia, I feel leaving out the 3 earth ages which

    leads to confusion.

    They attempt to explain how the first earth age ended, offer proof in the earth and basically prove

    the teachings of Pastor Arnold.  This one began with Paleo Indians living in the Channel Islands

    11,000 years ago.  The Chumash.  There are a lot of questions that have been raised, as we also learn

    the oldest 10 commandments are in America...  Sun Kings of Oklahoma. Bat Creek Stone. Cherokee... 

    Anastasi - Hopi - Basque.... 


    Chumash Wilderness - This is the sign is posted near Mt Abel on the start of the Peak to Peak hike to Mount Pinos. 

    Ironically all of which back up the book and the teachings of Pastor Arnold Murray as he digs into each word,
    and opening the door to seeing what happened, discerning the truth one word at a time.   What does it all mean.
    There is more than enough proof the Katabole has happened, and why.

  • Haku! and welcome to Chumash Indian life.

    The Chumash Indian homeland lies along the coast of California, between Malibu and Paso Robles, as well as on the Northern Channel Islands. Before the Mission Period, the Chumash lived in 150 independent villages with a total population of about 18,000 people. In different parts of the region, people spoke different but related languages.

    The area was first settled about 13,000 years ago. Over time, the population increased and the people adapted their lifeways to the local environment. Villages along the coastline, on the islands and in the interior had access to different resources, which they traded with one another.

    This trade was made possible in part by the seagoing plank canoe, or tomol, which was invented about 2,000 years ago. In addition to the plank canoe, the Chumash are known for their fine basketry, their mysterious cave paintings and their money made from shells.

    Today, there are still many people who can trace their ancestry back to these historic Chumash communities. Now you can learn more about how the Chumash people once lived, what customs they practiced, how they made money and what kinds of food they ate.

    This website includes information about the Chumash people's daily lives, as well as resources archived by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Visit the museum and experience the Chumash people, "the ones who make shell bead money."

    Chumash people Wikipedia  |  Chumash Indians There are a 

    lot of questions that have been raised, as we also learn the why and how....... 

    the Oldest Known 10 Commandments are in America

    1. The Mystery Of The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone or (10 Commandments)

      Albuquerque, and west of Los Lunas, New Mexico, an ancient inscription was carved into the face of a boulder centuries ago. It is the 

      Just some things I found out about Mt Pinos and notes of a hiker that told us a lot about the land... 

    In addition to Mt. Pinos (8831'), there are three other peaks along the broad

    ridge traversed by the Vincent Tumamait Trail -- Sawmill Mountain (8818'), Grouse Mountain (8582'), and Mt. Abel/Cerro Noroeste (8280+'). I've run past the indistinct path to Grouse Mountain numerous times on the way to Mt. Abel, always commenting "someday I have to check that out." Finally, today we did.  On the way to Grouse we did the short detour to the top of Sawmill. 

    Since my last visit the Chumash spirit tower on the peak had grown, no doubt from the 

    many fine days and views enjoyed here.

    This morning the snow-covered mountains of the Southern Sierra could be seen above the haze of the San Joaquin Valley.

    The ascent of Grouse was straightforward. Like Sawmill Mountain, it has two nearly equal height summits. 

    We found a small granite crag northeast of the summit and climbed a short steep route on its west face. 

    It had fun technical moves on mostly good holds, but in running shoes you had to pay attention -- 

    especially on the down climb!  On the way back to Mt. Pinos we stopped by Sheep Camp. The short side

     trip to this idyllic spot is essentially compulsory. It would be easy to spend the afternoon here, listening

     to the wind in the pines and the gurgling of the spring; smelling the sun-warmed pine needles; and

     enjoying the greens, yellows, reds and blues of Summer.

    I always feel a little twinge of regret when leaving Sheep Camp, but it was a great day to be on the move,

    and soon we were back on the trail and enjoying that as well.  Vincent Tumamait Trail

    Mt. Pinos from the Vincent Tumamait Trail 
    Mt. Pinos from the Vincent Tumamait Trail

    There are several options for runs and hikes in the Mt. Pinos area. On the long side is the 25+ mile run from

    the lower McGill trailhead to Mt. Abel (Cerro Noroeste) mentioned in Snow Plant Still Life. Another valley

    to-summit adventure is the approximately 20 mile out & back run/hike to the summit of Mt. Pinos from Three

    Falls Boy Scout Camp in Lockwood Valley.  This day I was looking to escape the heat of the San Fernando Valley, but do

    something a little less ambitious than either of those runs. The North Fork would be too hot, and McGill to Abel too strenuous.

    Instead, I opted for a third alternative, the Vincent Tumamait Trail between Mt. Pinos and Mt. Abel. 

    By doing a short side trip to the spring at Sheep Camp, I could carry one water bottle and keep things simple.

    The route, including the spur to Sheep Camp, works out to be about 14.5 miles, with 3000 ft. or so of elevation

    gain. There's a lot of up and down as the trail works its way along the forested ridge, and past the broad

    summits of Sawmill Mountain and Grouse Mountain.  The trail ends at the Cerro Noroeste road, 

    but it is not difficult to find a way up the steep slope above the road to the summit of Mt. Abel.

    In kayaking there is saying that you "never run the same river twice." The same is true of trails. 

    Each experience on a particular trail is unique. This would be a day of unblemished blue skies and 

    tired legs, the subtle scents of sun-warmed pine needles and Jeffry Pine on the air. A day of bounding 

    deer, Paintbrush reds, and Wallflower yellows. It would be one to contemplate the fallen trees of 

    Cerro Noroeste, the peculiar shape of the Larkspur leaf, the intricacies of the snow plant, and the

    hummingbird flight of the Bee Fly.

    The photograph is a glimpse of Mt. Pinos from the saddle west of the peak. 

    With sufficient snow cover, and the right conditions, I've enjoyed good skiing on these slopes, 

    as well as along the ridge leading to Sawmill and Grouse Mountains. 

    Here's a view of Grouse Mountain from near Mt. Abel.Watch Later

    In the beginning the Earth was Perfect and it became VOID... That was the reason for the words below the book... I feel wrong to take it down, and wrong to leave it up incomplete, but with this warning, these are the DEUT 29.29 things that I have found and am working on the rest of the story. Until then, know Mt Pinos is just one of my favorite places, I was led to find it, and now that I have, I will tell the world about it and the First People that lived there, the CHUMASH.
