Noahic Promises - or Why the Orthodox pray that even Satan might be forgiven

People. There is a reptile that bears the entire spectrum of visible light running from head to tail. Listen to me. These creatures are essentially rainbows creeping along the ground. Incredible.

This raises more questions than it answers. Perhaps you wouldn't mind preempting some of my questions with a brief explanation.

Does this help at all? And if not that, than what about this? The latter is what I saw in the woods last week. The little guys are everywhere! and simply amazing! I've seen them before, but never so many and never so close.

James Jordan somewhere mentions that the Hebrew word for "serpent" connotes gems and color; that the serpent was a fascinating creature; and that even nowadays reptiles can coruscate or variegate. Look at the colors of the day gecko. Even when I've gone to the desert with my herpetologist friend, the Mojave green shimmers.

I love them there skinks. Used to chase 'em...er, I mean, study 'em all the time when I lived in Florida.
