    Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species. In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time. More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. "This conclusion...

    “The Gospel in the Garden” (Genesis 3:8-15) Did you know you have an adversary out to get you? A very strong adversary, too strong for you to handle on your own? You do. He’s out to get you, to destroy you, body and soul. And you would be powerless to overcome him on your own. You need help--big help, the kind only God can provide. Or else you would be lost, damned and condemned forever. You need this help day by day, every day, for your enemy will never give up on trying to take you down. But the good...

    'Since the Torah is the basic fabric of reality it cannot be hidden forever'! Scientists are coming closer and closer to the Bible, as more evidence arises of its accuracy, according to a report in Breaking Israel News. Science now supports the biblical account of the first man and woman in that it recognizes “Mitrochondrial Eve” and “Y-Chromosomal Adams,” the report said. BIN reports end times expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston describes the developing scientific view as “signal of redemption.” “During the exile there was great Hester Panim – a hiding of God’s face,” he told BIN. “As a result the...
  • Why Are Humans Unique and Superior to All Other Animals?

    Modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are not just incrementally superior to any other hominid or animal; we’re qualitatively different, both as the only known technologically-intelligent species and by virtue of dozens of unique abilities. It is not a claim but a demonstrable fact that anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are vastly superior to every other form of life and, for whatever reason, all the genetic mutations that make us unique and confer over 40 traits and behaviors that result in evolutionary advantages over every other animal, occurred within a short period of time, within just one genus, and nowhere...

    There are, of course, many different representations of Progressivism: the literature of Upton Sinclair, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, the history of Charles Beard, the educational system of John Dewey. In politics and political thought, the movement is associated with political leaders such as Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt and thinkers such as Herbert Croly and Charles Merriam. While the Progressives differed in their assessment of the problems and how to resolve them, they generally shared in common the view that government at every level must be actively involved in these reforms. The existing constitutional system was outdated and...

    Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so...

    4.4 billion years ago, the Earth was in what is called the ‘Hadean Eon’. This time period is poorly understood, because there is no rock record dating from that time. This is where the zircon mineral grains come in. ... In a sense, these zircon grains are the missing pages. Zircon’s chemical name is zirconium silicate, and it’s found almost everywhere in the Earth’s crust. This study focuses on what’s called detrital zircon, which is formed in igneous rocks, but then survives over time until deposited in sedimentary rocks. Zircon grains are typically very small, about 0.1 to 0.3 mm...

    How did the waters of Noah’s Flood drain off the continents? by Mike Oard Many ask: “If Noah’s Flood really covered the whole earth, then where did the water go?” This question has a simple answer, and once we understand what happened and how, we can see the reality of the biblical Flood all around the world. As the ocean basins sank, thousands of metres of sediment washed off the continents, forming the continental margin. The floodwater is in the oceans Actually, the Bible tells us where the water went. By Day 150 of the Flood catastrophe the floodwaters had...

    Pope Francis is decrying "ideological colonization" of gender ideology. In an interview conducted in late July, published Thursday by the Vatican, the Pope slammed the indoctrination of children by educational institutions. "In Europe, America, Latin America, Africa, and in some countries of Asia, there are genuine forms of ideological colonization taking place," the pontiff claimed, responding to a question from Bp. Christopher Zadarko of Koszalin-Kolobrzeg. And one of these — I will call it clearly by its name — is [the ideology of] 'gender.' Today children — children! — are taught in school that everyone can choose his or her...

    August 9, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Italian Bishop Nunzio Galantino, a personal appointee of the pope and a prelate who has been extolled as the “prototypical ‘Pope Francis bishop,’” is coming under criticism after delivering a homily to young people at World Youth Day in which he rewrote the story of God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. While the clear meaning of the text is to emphasize God’s hatred of sin, in the bishop’s telling the message of the story is about Abraham’s willingness to emphasize “positive possibilities” and "signs of hope" despite the “misdeeds” of the people of Sodom. It’s...

    For most of 2016, astronomers have been viewing a ball of hot gas billions of light years away that is radiating the energy of hundreds of billions of suns. At its heart is an object a little larger than 10 miles across. And astronomers are not entirely sure what it is. If, as they suspect, the gas ball is the result of a supernova, then it’s the most powerful supernova ever seen. Most astronomers today believe that one of the plausible reasons we have yet to detect intelligent life in the universe is due to the deadly effects of local...

    Why is Original Sin Called the “Sin of Adam”? Msgr. Charles Pope • July 21, 2016 • Original sin is that first sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, committed when they ate the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen 3:1-7). And while it clearly involved both of them, Scripture and Tradition refer to it formally as the “Sin of Adam” or “Adam’s Sin,” not the “Sin of Adam and Eve.” It is also described as coming to us “through one man,” not “through a man and a woman.”...

    From a reader: “I'm a little confused about where you are going with Genesis... Can you give me some hint of where you are going and the purpose of all of this?” Response: My concern is that Genesis be understood at the deepest possible level since the material there is foundational to the whole canon. Genesis should not be forced into a modern mold. We should make the effort to understand what this material meant to the archaic peoples for whom this divine revelation was sacred. One of the best ways to do this is to apply the tools of...

    Genesis 3 is so revealing on how the devil tempts us to make wrong decisions. As a result we disobey God and thus, harm our our selves. He Strikes Up a Conversation"Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?," said the serpent to the woman? You see, how craft and deceiving he is? He didn't approach her with a scary look you see in movies, telling her about his evil intentions. Instead, he struck up a very casual conversation with Eve, where nothing seemed apparently wrong. Be careful of this. The devil is very...

    The Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other North American Indians all speak of giant men who once lived and roamed in the territories of their forefathers. All over what is now the U.S. are traditions of these ancient giants. Over 1000 accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have reportedly been unearthed from ancient burial sites over a two-hundred-year period in North America. Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian ethnology reports have carefully documented this. These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast with strange anatomic anomalies...

    Modern Archaeology and Genesis by Brian Thomas, M.S. * Evidence for Creation With so many loud voices in our culture asserting that Genesis is a myth, one would think archaeologists have uncovered clear evidence that refutes it. On the contrary, some incredible archaeological finds confirm key events in Genesis. In the 1970s, archaeologists discovered tablets made before 2000 B.C. at Ebla in northern Syria. Among them were found creation tablets1 that say, “Lord of heaven and earth: / The earth was not, you created it; / The light of day was not, you created it.”2 Cylinder seals are tiny stone...
