Default GJL in Powerboat Magazine

Nice article on George Linder in Powerboat's newest issue. Matt Trulio did a nice job...... He got everything correct except Linder's age...( He's at least 3500 years old )

Oh yeah..... I almost forgot, there's also a Fountain biography in the same issue. I especially liked the picture of him in his tunnel boat days. Those are the eyes I remember. Say what you will about his ego and self promotion, the little one man fillibuster was fearless and could flat drive a race boat!

The antediluvian period
Creationists such as William Whiston (A New Theory of the Earth 1696) and Henry Morris (The Genesis Flood 1961) typically describe the antediluvian period as follows:

People lived much longer than people today, typically between 700-950 years, as reported in the Genealogies of Genesis;
The Earth contained many more people than the Earth contained in 1696. Whiston calculated that as many as 500 million humans may have been born in the antediluvian period, based on assumptions about lifespans and fertility rates;
There were no clouds or rain. Instead, the Earth was watered by mists which rose from the Earth. (Another interpretation is that the Earth was covered completely by a global cloud layer; the upper "waters" mentioned in the Creation. This is commonly called the Vapor canopy theory.)
The Bible speaks of this era as being a time of great wickedness. There were Gibborim (giants) in the earth in those days as well as Nephilim, some translations identify the two as one and the same. These giants were the offspring of the "sons of God" (Hebrew Bney Ha-elohim') (See Gen. 6:2), sometimes interpreted as angels, who descended from the heavens to beget them with mortal women. The Gibborim were unusually powerful; Genesis calls them "heroes of old, men of renown;" (Enoshi Ha Shem). The antediluvian period ended when God sent the Flood to wipe out all life except Noah, his family, and the animals they took with them. Nevertheless, the Nephilim (literally meaning 'fallen ones', from the Hebrew root n-f-l 'to fall') reappear much later in the Biblical narrative, in Numbers 13:31-33.

Yes That is correct...I remember him clearly during the Autumn games when he always won the ox tossing contests. Linder also was quite renowned as he was quite good at virgin squeezing. Sadly, you and I had to be content as simple scribes and pillagers.... and sharing an occasional virgin, after they were cooked of course.
