Human beings and their storytelling mind, sometimes, through imagination and exaggeration, move beyond the obvious signs of an event and its consequences, completely removing or devoiding it of its original meaning, dissociating it from daily life, and turning it into a tool to justify their attitudes and beliefs. One of the bitterest examples of this, in human history, is about the way the story of the prophet Job and the cause of his suffering and illness, along with its treatment, have been reported.
