To begin, it took 40 people to write the Bible. Moses was 40 years in Egypt, 40 years in the desert, and 40 years in the wilderness . He was on Mount Sinai twice with God for 40 days and 40 nights.

About babarahs

I was born with an Inquiring Mind and I love all things weird. Weird like UFO'S-Mysticism-Ancient Beings-Really ODD stuff found in the Bible. I do not believe in the reality that has been handed down to me. I believe there is only one Reality....Consciousness. I was also born with a great spiritual desire ...which does NOT include any religion or their beliefs.
