If the sea became three meters deeper, the water would absorb all the carbon dioxide and nitrogen, and no creature could live any longer.

Why am I posting book reviews? Because reading books is time-consuming. No one wants to spend a month or two reading a lousy book. I'll offer here my "two cents" on whatever book I finish.
History of the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides
Why would a Christian want to read this book? First of all, its an exciting book about an exciting event written by an author who was also a participant. This war would go on to leave Hellas in tatters making it easy prey for the
