    Thanks so much for this. I have been experiencing a lot of fear, especially about the future, because of one christian in particular obsessing about end time hybrids and underground programmes. As a linguist (but not of biblical hebrew) I find your word studies immensely reassuring. It seems obvious to me, from archaeological studies on the flood, where fossils of humans and other artefacts similar to what we have today, are so much larger, that before the flood, humans must have been so much larger because creation scientists postulate that the earth’s atmosphere and pressure was so much more different then. It seems logical to me that after the flood, the conditions changed and humans gradually became smaller and had shorter life spans. I am relieved to find this website. Kind regards.
