Your saying that you are a "critical thinker" is the most erroneous comment since General Custer, who supposedly told his men at Little Bighorn..."Over that hill, I think there are FRIENDLY Indians".

There is a story of James Bartley, a crewman on a whaling vessel, who was swallowed whole by a sperm whale in February 1891. Bartley was able to survive for 15 hours (36 hours by some accounts) in the whale's stomach which contained breathable oxygen. Fellow whalers discovered Bartley while butchering the whale. They washed him off with sea water. His skin was bleached by the whale's stomach acid but he eventually made a full recovery.

Unfortunately for those who would offer this story as proof that the original Jonah story is plausible, it has been thoroughly debunked as a hoax.
