Human clustering in coastal areas The coastal zone has gained a solid reputation as a place vocated for recreational activities and this is generally related to the presence of the sea. The relationship, however, does not appear univocal or simple: the sea can be perceived as a hostile element by humans and the more general question of whether the presence of the shore is in itself a favourable, repulsive, or irrelevant factor to settlement is a debatable point, at least for pre-industrial societies. Back in the early part of the 19th century, Friedrich Hegel regarded oceans and rivers as unifying elements rather than dividing ones, thus implying a trend towards the concentration of human settlements along them. 'The sea', he wrote, 'stimulates 1 courage and conquest, as well as profit and plunder', although he realized that this did not equally apply to all maritime peoples. In Hegel's view, different approaches to the sea were mainly the results of cultural factors and, in fact, he recognized that some people living in coastal areas perceive the sea as a dangerous and alien place and the shore as aftnis terrae.

The Christian response to the Celebration of Purim is one of thanksgiving, for if Esther did not stand up and speak up and stop the genocide of the Jewish people, our Jesus the Hebrew Messiah (Yahushua HaMashiach) would not have been born (Esther 9:29-32). This Celebration was established so that the Feast of Purim would be celebrated and remembered throughout all future Jewish generations as a memorial to the Jewish people and how they were miraculously saved from the evil plot of a bitter, evil man who was a hater of the Jews, his name is Haman. The story is found in the Old Testament in the Book of Esther, also known in Hebrew as "the Scroll" (Megillah). The Book of Esther tells the story of a Jewish girl who became queen of Persia (Iran) and stopped a Jewish genocide of her people. This story is the core of the Jewish Festival of Purim. Paul said in Colossians 2:16-17 that the Jewish feasts and celebrations were actually a shadow of the things to come through Jesus Christ, the Hebrew Messiah.
