Well, I don't know how to feel at this point. There are many people who create a wide series of claims and supply it with facts and evidence, and in this case, it has occurred. Though I associate logic with evidence and facts, I cannot share my opinion on the topic. Since my whole life has existed in "this very place" I am implicitly obligated to believe that it is not a simulation. Therefore, I fail to answer the question of whether life is real or fake based on this particular context, as it is far too complex.

The Book of Job is different from other stories in the Old Testament that we have read in several aspects. First off, the suffering of Job comes as an excessive test formed by Satan. Unlike the story of Abraham, God was testing Abraham's loyalty, and it was his own choice. As for the story of Job, he only did it as a way of leisure/"a bet with Satan". He puts him through what is arguably the worst scenario from all of the stories we read in the Old Testament. He takes away virtually everything in Job's possession to see the results. After torturing Job, God rewards him for entertaining him, which is similar to almost every single story in which someone disobeys or obeys God. In the story of Abraham, God tries to take away his son as a result to test his loyalty, but God stops that. In Job, it is the same story, except God takes away everything in his possession. In the story of Adam and Eve, they disobey God, and as a result God punishes them.

|By completing this assignment, my view of God has slightly changed. Previously, I saw him as a perfect figure who has no emotion, despite classifying as an atheist. When God realizes and acknowledges the wickedness of humanity, he experiences sorrow towards his creatures and grieves himself to his heart, which demonstrates his emotions. Though outside of that thought, the story of Genesis follows with all my beliefs perfectly.|

Throughout most cultures, a flood story/myth is present. Some are more similar to others, and some vary greatly. As for the story of Deucalion and Gilgamesh, they are somewhat similar. Both cultures were polytheistic, or they believed in multiple gods. In the flood tale of Gilgamesh, the gods had flooded the world due to their disruptive behavior. As for the story of Deucalion, the leader of the gods, Zeus, flooded the world because of the wickedness of humanity, which is largely different. The gods in the story of Gilgamesh did it because of selfishness, to "shut up" humankind, but Zeus did it for the greater good in order to rid the world of its wickedness. Both of the stories had someone who was alerted ahead of he time of the event, in Gilgamesh being Utnapshtim, and in the story of Deucalion, well, clearly Deucalion. After the flood, both survived the flood, but went in two very different paths.
