Search Engine Tutorial 2

Most Popular Search Engines

Google
This is one of the best search engines out there. You don't have to deal with the advertising or search directories that other search engines include. Google lists your search hits according to what sites are the most popular and most visited. There's also an 'I'm Feeling Lucky' search option. You click on the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button and conduct your search as normal except it takes you directly to the first site on the list. Apparently the first site that Google gives you is the best site. This isn't always true but it can save you time if you know exactly what it is you're looking for.

Yahoo
Yahoo was one of the earliest search engines on the net. It hasn't continued to be the best though. You can't do advanced searches to limit the amount of hits your search will receive like most other search engines. Yahoo's site is also a place where you can shop, check your horoscope, email and the day's weather forecast. Yahoo also has a great subject directory.

Excite
Your search results are sorted not by how popular the sites are but by which sites match your keywords the best. However, Excite's site is really cluttered. If you can find the search tool sandwiched between advertising, news and more advertising, then it will do the job. You can search for images here as well, so that's an added bonus.

MSN
Like so many of the other search engines, MSN has tons of shopping options. It also has the top news headlines, a link to your Hotmail account and lots more. The actual search tool is located on the far right of the page, so it's easier to use and locate than Excite's.

AltaVista
AltaVista updates its database (that's where your search results come from) daily. They have over 31 million Web sites in their database, so you're bound to find what you're looking for. It's also a really neat and tidy site. It offers a subject directory, news and ad links - all clutter free.

Maybe you clarified this on another page, page but AlphaT do you believe it's possible the flood really did happen but could've been local? Unrung, do you think there's any merit to the flood being local? And also Alpha, does that mean you don't think Noah actually existed?  Another question I want to pose to both of you, and anyone else, is what do you think the moral of the story is? And is the power of that moral diminished if the flood isn't historically accurate? -Just wanna throw this out there, my response to Alpha is going to take a while. My opening statement was indeed 3 pages long in Microsoft Word, but my friend's is a whopping 9 pages. I don't really have the time at the moment, but I'll be getting around to it as soon as I can.- But I can answer your question. :) What I gather from the text, Jolly, is the idea of the whole earth being subject to judgment, and this point is repeated throughout the story. Chapter 6:11-13 stresses the notion. "Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, 'I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth.'" There is no way of getting around this, the story clearly indicated that God meant to destroy all life on the face of the earth. What would be the point of a localized flood anyway? God said all life was corrupted, so how was purging this one little region somewhere in the Middle East going to cleanse the entire earth? Why would Noah even have to make an ark, why not just take a hike out of the area where God was going to bring the tiny flood? Creationists typically believe that the ark was built over a period of roughly 60 years. This would have been ample time for Noah and his family to just get out of dodge and settle down somewhere else! So you have to either take the story at face value, or you have to reject it altogether. And I would point out that Noah and his son Shem are found in the Messianic lineage, as we read in Luke 3:36. So if you believe the lineage of Christ to be accurate, then you have to accept that Noah was a real man who really walked the earth. This evidence might not persuade an atheist of the flood, but I think it ought to mean something to the Christian. Not to mention, both Jesus and his disciples refer to Noah's flood in the New Testament. You also asked what I think the moral of the story is. I think it attests to God's righteousness, that he punished the wicked for turning their back on Him and doing evil all the time, it attests to God's mercy and love, that he spared the righteous from destruction, even if it was only one family, and it attests to God's reliability, as He never fails to meet His promises.
