I was reading in my history book about Abram. This is a story that I already knew from the Bible, but the history book goes into much more detail. One thing it’s more clear about is why God changed Abram and Sarai’s names. Both Abram and Sarai’s names were connected with the moon-god at the time, named “Sin”. Yahweh changed their names to Abraham and Sarah in order to include the syllable “ah”, the first syllable of the covenant name “Yahweh”.
Whether or not this reason is true, we don’t know, so we are actually writing this article to ask if anybody had ever heard of this before. We always wondered why their names were changed and it seems as if this explanation could be true, but the book offers no real proof, and we’re just wondering if they have any. Does anybody know if this is true?
Also, on a completely unrelated note, it’s fall now, and a lot of people are having bonfires. If you are one of them and like many Americans, are planning on having roasted hot dogs and marshmallows (smores), for your own good, please read the USDA reccomendation on how to roast marshmallows: US Forest Service Asks: How Does Your Marshmallow Roast? Can you believe people actually get paid for writing stuff like this?
And that reminds us of something else, while we’re at it. Ever hear of those little ditties like “Click it or Ticket” or “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”? How’s that for a job? Do you think we could get hired with “Drive 55 or Pay 95″? Yeah – maybe there is some talent to it, huh.
