This whole ARC thing has been bugging me for awhile. Now, I realize you didn't say it John, but you're quoting someone. Regardless of how you look at the Bible or Torah; as fiction or as a map of what your life should be about, according to Judaic-Christian books Noah was helped. If there was more than one "thing" building the Arc, as the Judeo-Christian books describe, then we're talking about apples to apples, not apples to oranges. We may be talking about super-size apples to mere Braeburns. But there was more than one man involved in creating the Arc, and I don't have to quote Genesis for anyone to know what I mean. (Yes, years of religious education with the old testament has made me pretty savvy in that department.)

My subnote is that today I filled out an online application with a recruiter. After the obligatory "What are your best work skills?" and "What are your worst work skills?" came "What are your career goals."

I wrote that I had already fulfilled my career goals. I do what I love, I'm a writer, designer and editor. I've published books you can buy in Barnes & Noble in fiction and nonfiction. I make good money. I have "achieved" all my career goals. I know, I know, I *did* put the quotes around achieved. Is it so wrong to be happy with where one is career-wise and admit it? Am I doomed? As a sidenote to this subnote (my gosh it's late!) they had a typo on their website. If you want to know more, email me privately, I don't want to state the faux pas in a public forum.
