Subject: LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
thousands of years ago, there were so many misunderstandings about the earth, one thought was that the earth was carried on the back of a giant called ATLAS, another belief was that the earth was supported by 7 or 12 pillars, another popular belief was that the earth was carried on the back of a giant fish that swam in the oceans of eternity, but one of the prophets of ancient ISRAEL wrote the following words ....." he (the lord) hangs the earth on NOTHING ...a ray of light in all that darkness......... job/26-7
He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangs the earth on nothing.

It would be a nice touch if you were to include the Book Chapter and Verse of your quotes.

Yes but it should be noted that it was Job speaking out of ignorance, which he later admits,
26 Then Job replied:
7 He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;
he suspends the earth over nothing.

42 Then Job replied to the Lord:
2 “I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,
things too wonderful for me to know

And God answered him,
Job 38 4-6
4 “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set,
or who laid its cornerstone—

It's as if God is saying that God laid a foundation and cornerstone, and usually these are laid on some solid surface, but really God did not say where or on what God laid the foundation and cornerstone. So much is left to the interpretation of the reader, and here is where the trouble starts because every reader will bring in his own bias to the interpretation of the verse. The builder will say that obviously a foundation must be set on something solid, but the mystic will say that a foundation could be floating in space and will be the solid surface on which to build.

QUOTE THE DOC:

Subject: Soul on the move
STARJADE: In my entire professional career I have never encountered a more severe case of Egodystonic Homosexuality. In DSM-IV-TR it is defined as the condition of being distressed about an inability to be aroused by the opposite sex. There is a sustained pattern of same-sex arousal that the person explicitly states has been unwanted and persistently distressing. The condition is frequently accompanied by feelings of loneliness, shame, anxiety, and depression. In DSM-IV-TR it is categorized as a SEXUAL DISORDER NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED. Case closed.
