The original language is fish, not whale. Very large fish have swallowed some big objects. It still takes some faith in the supernatural to believe the Jonah story, but for your bf to dismiss it solely because 'whales only eat plankton' isn't as science based as he thinks.
You absolutely deserve this if you knew his beliefs as well as theirs. His dismissal of their faith is surely not going to win him any points.
To me, the funniest part is that the boyfriend is simply wrong. What he said might suit blue whales, but I highly doubt e.g. killer whales bite grape-sized pieces off of their prey.
Either way, in the original language the Bible was written the word means fish, not whale. A big fish swallowed Jonah. Not a whale. Also, we don't know what kinds of fish they had around back then, plus God can do whatever he wants and can make anything possible. That's the whole reason behind faith, trusting something you can't see and believing in His miracles. Most christians do not "know these stories are made up to get a point across". The Bible is Gods word and everything in it is true. If you're a Christian you believe that. If you're not a Christian then yeah, I see how it's hard to believe if you want science to back up everything.
And dolphins are whales... At least that's the classification I learned. Whales are split between toothed whales (dolphins etc) and... "Bartenwale" in German, google gives me Baleen whales as a translation. A dolphin's a whale, and orca's a dolphin, so logically, an orca's a whale, too?
The bible isn’t God’s word, it’s a bunch of stories written by other men, about events that may or may not have happened exactly as recorded. And the bible as it stands today, is not the true and original book. It has been doctored and censored countless times over the years to suit what ever political or religious agenda the person changing it, has.
LOL...almost all the comments are debating whether or not it was a fish or a whale. Apparently the rest of the story....a man surviving being in the belly of the whale ( fish,orca,whatever) for any real length of time and talking to a "supreme being" who miraculously saves him is completely plausible. :'D
Well, the main reason that's a point of contention is because if it is a whale, there are zero factual cases of a full grown human being swallowed alive- which makes the rest of the myth completely moot. And in the ridiculously unlikely chance that the only whale capable of swallowing something of that size- a sperm whale swallowing a human- the human would be crushed almost immediately once they reached the stomach due to the whale's anatomy.
