White is not right


This world we live in has another name - under the Sun. I am sure you've noticed the term used in the Bible and in other literature. What you may not be aware of is that in some languages, Twi for instance, the term for the world is wiase, which literally translates as Under the Sun. From this interpretation the expression under the sun as used in the Bible probably has no allegoric or poetic meaning. It literally means the world.
