The headline says it all, so I won’t delay you in getting to this superb Prager U. video by Prof. Sean McDowell of Biola University.
South African diver Rainer Schimpf shares something with the biblical Jonah that few, if any, other people ever have — Schimpf was swallowed whole by a huge whale, then spit out, and lived to tell about it.
In fact, it was all caught on video. Faithwire has this incredible story, via Barcroft Animals.
