  • Why do half of Britons not believe in evolution?

    The Examiner ^ | 07/31/2014 | Ken Ammi
    The info which follows dates to 2009 AD and may be the most recent stats.Indeed, as reported by the UK’s Guardian; Half of Britons do not believe in evolution, survey finds (Riazat Butt, February 1, 2009 AD) and Teach both evolution and creationism say 54% of Britons (Jessica Shepherd, October 25, 2009 AD). Thus half do not believe in it and more than half believe that both views should be taught.Keep in mind that while the UK does have RE (religious education) in public schools; it is a very, very, very secular society which is saturated with Darwinism. Logically,...

    The Royal Air Force could be called in to bring back UK citizens infected with the deadly Ebola disease from West Africa. David Cameron has said that Ebola outbreak is a ‘very serious threat’ to the UK and the foreign secretary, Philip Hammond, is preparing to chair an emergency meeting today on how to tighten Britain’s defences against the virus. Major Thomas Fletcher, of the Royal Army Medical Corps said it was likely the meeting would discuss putting the military on alert to ‘repatriate’ Britons infected with the disease. The Royal Air Force’s Infection Prevention Control Team is likely to...

    A shocking video from a major traffic artery in London shows Islamist protesters blocking the route in a loud protest which included the waving of an Al Qaeda flag. The footage was taken last week in Blackwell Tunnel - a major traffic route which runs underneath the River Thames in Britain's capital city, leaving motorists temporarily trapped in the tunnel. Anti-Semitism has spiked sharply in the UK during the past few weeks, as clashes between the IDF and terrorists in Gaza prompted anti-Israel groups to mobilize en-masse. Earlier this month the Community Security Trust (CST), which monitors anti-Semitism in the...

    THE parents of a boy aged four were horrified when a “mark of the Devil” appeared on his chest. Sharon Lewis and Robby Jones spotted the cross-hair imprint as they got son Samuel ready for bed. The sinister sign is proving a devil to explain. The imprint has baffled his parents, teachers and even the family's GP. Shocked Sharon, 37, of Market Drayton, Shrops, said yesterday: “It’s a nightmare. Some people have said it’s the Symbol of Mammon — the sign of the Devil’s first born — which has been very upsetting.

    To say that that the First World War was the greatest cataclysm in human history since the fall of the Roman Empire is to put it mildly. The war destroyed so many good things and killed so many good people that civilization has not recovered and probably never will. Long after it officially ended, it continued to cause millions of deaths and tragedies, most obviously during its encore performance of 1939-45. But it did not stop even then. Many of its worst consequences came during official periods of peace and are unknown or forgotten, or remain unconnected with it in...

    Leading British Muslim preachers have strongly condemned the Islamist militant group ISIS in an online video published this week aimed at deterring young British Muslims from fighting in Iraq and Syria. Their denunciation of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and its self-proclaimed "caliphate" is considered to be the highest-profile kickback thus far from Muslim leaders in Britain to the extremist Islamist group that has taken control of large swathes of Northern and Western Iraq and Eastern Syria. The British Imams appearing in the video described ISIS insurgents as “corrupt, evil, viscous cowboys and terrorists.” They said their...

    CHRISTIANS should be encouraged to marry Muslims as a way of tackling Islamophobia, a senior peer claimed today. Lord Scott, a former Supreme Court Judge, cited his own family - in which two of his four children married Muslims - as an example of how interfaith families can thrive.

He said: “Of my two sons one has become a Muslim and of my two daughters one of those...

    LONDON - America owes much of its freedom to its British heritage. But today, Britain is losing its freedom. Many Americans were stunned when British authorities arrested Liberty Great Britain party leader Paul Weston in April for publicly reciting Winston Churchill's criticism of Islam. The calendar might say it's 2014, but in Britain it's starting to feel like George Orwell's "1984" because "Big Brother" has decided that certain things can no longer be said. Arrested over Churchill Weston quoted from Winston Churchill's book, The River War, in which he wrote: "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its...

    People will be more likely to support fracking if they have a direct commercial interest in the extraction of shale oil and gas beneath their land, Mayor of London says. British households should be given ownership of the oil and gas beneath their homes so that they have a commercial interest in supporting fracking, Boris Johnson has said. The Mayor of London said that the law should be changed so that “mineral rights” belonged to the landowner, rather than the Crown. Currently, the Government grants licences to companies to explore for and produce oil and gas, while the owners of...

Payhembury School in Devon was criticised in its 2010 Ofsted report because all of the pupils attending the school are White and because the school is situated in an all White area.

Now schools in the UK are increasingly becoming the battleground of a war between radical Islam and the hopeless, dhimmi British "authorities", if this is the right term to use in the face of limp-wristed inaction.

    University of East Anglia ^ | June 18, 2014 | Press Release
    Scientists at the University of East Anglia have made a breakthrough in the race to solve antibiotic resistance. New research published today in the journal Nature reveals an Achilles’ heel in the defensive barrier which surrounds drug-resistant bacterial cells. The findings pave the way for a new wave of drugs that kill superbugs by bringing down their defensive walls rather than attacking the bacteria itself. It means that in future, bacteria may not develop drug-resistance at all. The discovery doesn’t come a moment too soon. The World Health Organization has warned that antibiotic-resistance in bacteria is spreading globally, causing severe...

    Politicians are so busy squabbling over extremism that they are failing to tackle it. Shortly after midnight on Tuesday, the Home Office website published a letter from the Home Secretary, Theresa May, to the Education Secretary, Michael Gove. In it, Mrs May asked some rude questions about why his department had not acted earlier to investigate accusations of Islamist infiltration of schools in Birmingham. This was heat-of-the-night stuff. One government department is not supposed to publish its attacks on another. The error was tacitly acknowledged: on Thursday afternoon, the letter was taken down from the website.

    Argentina is planning to hijack British oil rigs near the Falkland Islands to stop them drilling in the disputed territory, according to defence sources who say that the country has purchased four new super-tugs to intercept oil platforms. Writing for the Brazilian website Defesanet, analyst Roberto Lopes says it is "not true" that Argentina is only purchasing the tugs to replace older vessels. "These vessels will be used to intercept the British and American oil platforms designated for travel to the Falklands when drilling starts in the Sea Lion oil field," he writes, adding: "the British will not allow oil...

A growing group of overweight activists claim it's OK and healthy to be overweight. Fat activism, as they call it – yes that's a thing now – is about recognising that all bodies are fine. Nowadays, the 'fat movement' is all about challenging prejudices. Except, we should be worried. Accepting obesity...

    One of the standard arguments about Britain’s membership of the European Union is that it’s vital that we stay in because so much of our trade is with other European Union countries. Implicit in this is the claim that this is a result of our being in the EU. The dropping of trade restrictions resulting from the Single Market rules for example. The problem with this argument is that it depends upon an empirical claim: that Britain’s trade with the European Union countries has increased since the foundation of that Single Market. And it turns out that that doesn’t seem...

The event created a catastrophic tsunami, with waves almost half as high as the Statue of Liberty, that battered Britain and other land masses. And now the most accurate computer model ever made of the tsunami suggests that it wiped out the remaining inhabitants of a set of low-lying landmass known as Doggerland off the coast of the UK. A new model by researchers at Imperial College London has revealed the devastating effects of a tsunami caused by a landslide off...

    Today, it has been reported that British state-run hospitals, under the direction of the National Health Service, incinerated dead children lost in abortions and miscarriages in order to heat hospitals. The babies were discarded like so much clinical waste, to be burned. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2014/03/24/nhs-horror-aborted-babies-incinerated-as-clinical-waste-in-uksome-used-to-heat-hospitals-n1813630?utm_source=TopBreakingNewsCarousel&utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=BreakingNewsCarousel Ladies and gentlemen, this is satanic. This is lower than the practices of most Third World countries. They kill children with abandon in Sudan, where government-funded militiamen use guns and slashing weapons to slaughter non-Arabs in the Darfur region. Yet even in Sudan, they do not incinerate the children as fuel. You see, even radical Muslim fanatics...

    London (AFP) - Britons see Russia in a more positive light than the European Union, despite recent tensions with Moscow over Ukraine, according to a poll published on Saturday. Voters in Britain are also equally divided about whether to remain in the 28-member bloc, a subject on which Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum in 2017. The results of the online poll of 20,000 people between 7 and 20 January organised by Conservative party peer Lord Michael Aschcroft were published in Rupert Murdoch's British tabloid The Sun on Sunday. The league table of 27 "liked" countries and institutions...

    Erica Connor's eyes widen as she reads the four-page letter purportedly outlining a plot by Muslim fundamentalists to take over state education. ... Erica has added her own concerns about the Islamisation of state schools in Britain to those of dozens of teachers, classroom assistants and school staff to whom we have talked following widespread reports of the letter in the media. The document — entitled Operation Trojan Horse — originates in Birmingham and was leaked anonymously to a Sunday newspaper. It purports to outline a strategy of identifying schools in Muslim neighbourhoods, ridding them of non-Muslim heads and parachuting...

    It is time for the calls for reparations to the descendants of those who were enslaved by colonial powers via the trans-Atlantic slave trade to bear fruit. The European countries and the United States need to compensate for the injustices suffered by slaves and their families. African-Americans and African-Caribbean intellectuals have been agitating for reparations for many years, but the question as to how the compensation would be calculated and in what form is yet to be answered. Since 1999, the African World Reparations and Repatriation Truth Commission called for the West to pay trillions of dollars to Africa. In...

    CNN has axed Piers Morgan from his prime time interview slot after years of terrible ratings and lacklustre reviews, punctuated by flashes of controversy as the spiky former newspaper editor sparred with celebrities and clashed with US culture. Mr Morgan, the British former editor of the Daily Mirror, styled himself as an outspoken and aggressive critic of US gun legislation, engaged in public spats with potential celebrity guests and was an ubiquitous presence on Twitter, sniping at enemies and stirring up debate. Here are some of his more controversial moments: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) â—Ź It is hard to imagine just what Mr...

    Argentina is preparing for a war either against Britain or Argentines. No one is sure as the country acquires military hardware that includes, jet fighters, anti-aircraft guns and specialized radar. The news came late Saturday night, just a few months before oil drilling begins in the Falkland Islands area. Besieged by runaway inflation, corruption and inefficiency in government as well as being impotent to stop rampant crime, Argentina’s failing President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, seems to be taking a page from history’s playbook. In January she created a new cabinet position, Secretary for the Malvinas, Argentina’s name for the Falklands....

    Human remains dug up from an ancient grave in Oxfordshire add to a growing body of evidence that Britain's fifth-century transition from Roman to Anglo-Saxon was cultural rather than bloody. The traditional historical narrative is one of brutal conquest, with invaders from the North wiping out and replacing the pre-existing population. But a new study, published in the Journal of Archaeological Science, hints at a more peaceful process. Dr Andrew Millard, from Durham University, is one of the study's authors. 'The main controversy over the years has centred on how many Anglo-Saxons came across the North Sea,' he says. 'Was...
