Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.”...God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. God called the space “sky.”...Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.”… Gn 1:6-10

“Everyone has faith in God though everyone does not know it. For everyone has faith in himself and that multiplied to the nth degree is God. The sum total of all that lives is God. We may not be God, but we are of God, even as a little drop of water is of the ocean.” --Mahatma Gandhi
