comment Can we trust the Septuagint?
I agree, it could use a small summary stating that we can't trust the Septuagint due to the overlap between Methuselah surviving the flood.

Interesting point. But I thought that lineage wasn't always direct lineage. So, X begat Y doesn't mean that X was the father of Y, merely the ancestor. Maybe that would be a good question to post. :)

comment Is this correct usage of semi-colon?
"habits do not" actually is a complete sentence. It has both a noun (habits) and a verb (do).

comment what do you call a civilized person?
When you say "civilized", you mean someone who is part of a civilization? Or do you mean someone who uses good manners (as opposed to a savage)?

comment How would an icicle "grow" upwards?
That photo looks like a parking lot. In which case, it would have been a car sitting there, dripping water. The picture may be a bit misleading, since that doesn't look like what you are describing.

comment What is the decree that Pope Gregory IX issued in 1231?
An interesting article titled Decoding The Statutes of Gregory IX for the University of Paris 1231. You might find it interesting, but it doesn't answer the question. It was "Based on the translation from Dana C. Munro, trans., University of Pennsylvania Translations and Reprints, (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1897), Vol. II: No. 3, pp. 7-11", if that helps.

comment Noun for "things that could be improved"
Your example would be "suggestions". However, that's probably not what your looking for. You might try to find a different example.

comment Why does the colour of amethyst fade if exposed to too much light?
"It is well known"... to most people, maybe. I just learned something new! :)
