Phil WilsonI suspect they call them "rays" because in many of these types of images (animal or otherwise) the lines are thought to represent the idea of power, or spirit, radiating out.

Life is no worse than it was 3000 years a go, in fact not near has violet or as scary. . No doctors , no cars no washer and dryers no freezers no tools like ours . No vacuum cleaners , no way to keep food cold or from spoiling. And the list goes on.and on. Medicine like antibiotics no meds for heart or strokes. No blood thiner , noting for hight blood sugar . Thank God he gave some people the brains to make life better than in Bible days . The days of no knowledge. Was a bad time. If you were a woman it was even harder . Many died in child birth that must have been a horrific way to die .Abraham got rich passing his wife off as his sister, Moses was a tyrant , harsh and cold ,He legalized rape and made it marriage . Stold,, hung people,. stoned people for nothing real important.Be headed young men . Killed men,women children, and babies ,old and young he killed them, then he lied and said God told him to do it . If there is a hell Moses should be one of the first in to it. I do not believe in the Devil or hell .it is myth to scare poeple and get control over them i have read the bible from front and to back a lot of times studied it from book to book. Everyone should read the Bible, it is the greatest work of fiction ever written .

Catherine DemosThe US Army Corps of Engineers was leading the cleanup of ordinance around the Pacific (Defense Environmental Remediation Project - Formerly Used Defense Sites). I am dismayed by the volume of ordinance this project recovered - it would be interesting to go back to the records for Marshall and Palau and see what was reported in terms of original cleanup efforts vs actual.
