    Evidence of Eternity in Our Hearts? by Brian Thomas, M.S. * We tend to think that some core in each person will somehow, somewhere live forever. Sociologists have been attempting to track down the source of this belief but so far have not been able to separate it from exposure to religious teaching. Now, a new research tactic reveals that belief in an eternal life apart from our bodies is hardwired into each of us, inadvertently confirming the Bible’s message. Most studies investigating this question ask adult participants about the afterlife, but this new research asked children about prelife—not-yet-born souls....
  • As I see it: Dever's death leaves a void in all law-abiding hearts

    Dear Nancy, I want to thank you for the years of allowing those of us who call Cochise County home to have your husband, Larry, as our sheriff. I first got to know Larry when I came to this newspaper in 1984, a couple of years after the Miracle Valley Shootout, the only title we in the media could come up with. I know he took a lot of heat, which was mostly generated by outsiders who flew in, made accusations, and then flew away. I left in 1987 for a five year period to work at another Wick paper...

    Some of the more than 100 human organs Dr. Michael Berkland was believed to have stashed over the years in a storage facility in Pensacola had been meticulously preserved. Others, like one found in a 32-ounce cup purchased at the Dodge Store in Fort Walton Beach and another stashed in a Glad brand plastic bag, were haphazardly handled. “The various different ways he stored them was very odd,” said Jeff Martin, the chief investigator for the First Judicial Circuit’s Medical Examiner’s Office. Berkland, an associate medical examiner who covered Okaloosa and Walton counties from 1997 to 2003, is believed to...

No matter how long you are married, have children, with parents, best friends, etc.....only GOD knows them in and out. All we know is what we see, hear, and are accustomed to by what we comprehend. But, only GOD knows everything. May we work to edify one anther through looking at each others' actions and words, and trying to help one another to get to the understanding and life of JESUS CHRIST!!

    We started this blog to share the blessings, trials, and news of our journey with our baby, Anna Joy. Her conception was a miracle surprise, and we've known from the start that God has a special purpose for her life. Although it is unknown to us how many days she will be with us here on earth due to two serious congenital heart defects, she has already given us so much joy and has drawn many closer to God through their prayers for our family.

    We have to thank Media Matters for putting us on the scent. They have been publishing articles attacking Fox News for interviewing this candidate or that too many times for their liking. Last week they were concerned over the fact John Kasich has appeared on Fox nine times since announcing his candidacy (on June 1 2009). Similarly, MM complained that in the space of one year, Rand Paul made ’21 appearances’ on Fox. The number is a bit misleading, since when you subtract spots on Fox Business Network or online, it turns out to be 10 appearances on FNC. Still,...

    It's tough being the wife of the most powerful man in the world, just ask Michelle Obama. Carla Bruni, who seemed to reveal her distaste for the First Lady in previous pictures, reveals Michelle's whiny comments in her recent book [Aside: why is a sitting world leader's spouse writing a tell-all? What tawdriness.] Anyway, here's what was allegedly said: Michelle Obama thinks being America's First Lady is ‘hell', Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet book.

    But this time I wouldn’t even consider volunteering to go to Afghanistan because the Obama administration is no longer fighting to win the war. Many of my closest Army friends have deployed to Afghanistan and they confided in me that they would not want to go again because they felt their hands were tied by restrictive rules of engagement (ROE). These highly-trained Special Operations soldiers have a legion of stories about not being allowed to fight as they had been trained. President Obama’s arbitrary July 2011 deadline for U.S. combat forces in Afghanistan to start drawing down weakens our allies’...

    The spill is a disaster for the president and his political philosophy. I don't see how the president's position and popularity can survive the oil spill. This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president's political judgment and instincts.

    Democratic Socialists of America member Dr. Michael Eric Dyson gives an impassioned speech on his “brother” Barack Obama to last weekend’s “We Count! The Black Agenda is the American Agenda” Conference in Chicago, while comrade Cornel West nearly wets himself with excitement. Dyson is a former co-parishioner with Obama of Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, in South Chicago. He claims to have known Barack Obama since 1991. This makes Dyson , along with Dr. Quentin Young, Timuel Black, Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf, Congressman Danny K. Davis, Cornel West , Lou Pardo and possibly Rev. Jim Wallis...

    Gino the gorilla knows the drill. He reaches way up with his left hand and puts his right hand out to the side. When his keeper asks, he pushes his right leg out and presses his left thigh and chest against the crisscrossed bars of his enclosure. He knows that striking this unusual pose — it looks like an upright round of Twister — earns him a treat. He doesn’t know that the ultrasound machine rolled up to the bars will collect information that could help gorillas beyond his Disney’s Animal Kingdom home.

    A brave Brazilian man is fighting for his life — with two beating hearts inside his body. The unnamed 53-year-old is in a stable condition after a 12-hour operation. But doctors at Sao Paulo's Heart Institute fear he only has a 50 percent chance of surviving. The patient has suffered severe lung hypertension that stopped his heart pumping blood around his body. So he was given the new donor organ to prop up his own heart. The "new" heart was placed on the right side of his chest and is linked to his original heart by a vein, arteries of...

Another part of a successful relationship is cooperation between both parties to achieve a common goal. For the Iraqi Army Soldiers of the 6th IA Division, Jan. 14 was a chance to lay the foundation for future success with local Iraqi citizens as the combined forces delivered school supplies to students at...

    WASHINGTON, June 11, 2008 – Servicemembers, veterans and their families going through problems related to deployments can get help from a California-based troop-support organization. Members of the group, called Patriotic Hearts, have developed a plan to help families navigate the sometimes-unexpected issues they may face when a loved one returns from the front lines. The plan involves working with spouses of deployed servicemembers to map out welcome-home parties, helping veterans find jobs, and hosting military marriage-enrichment weekends. “This three-point plan also addresses the needs of the military children, who endure tremendous stresses,” Mark Baird, president of Patriotic Hearts, said....

    MONROVIA, Liberia - One of Liberia's most notorious rebel commanders, known as Gen. Butt Naked, has returned to the nation his troops terrorized to confess, saying he is responsible for 20,000 deaths. The civil war, which killed an estimated 250,000 people in this nation of 3 million, was characterized by the eating of human hearts and soccer matches played with human skulls. Drugged fighters waltzed into battle wearing women's wigs, flowing gowns and carrying dainty purses stolen from civilians. Before he led his fighters into battle, wearing only a pair of lace-up boots, Blahyi said he made a human sacrifice...

    Monrovia - An evangelical pastor described the atrocities he and his men committed during the Liberian civil war, including magical rituals that involved slaughtering children and eating their hearts. Joshua Milton Blahyi spared no details on Tuesday as he told Liberia's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of his years with one of the most feared militias of the war. Dressed in an immaculate suit, Blahyi, 37, said it was for the TRC to decide whether he should be given an amnesty or prosecuted. "I am willing to go to court if necessary," he said. "And I will repeat just what...

    Researchers at the University of Minnesota have turned a "crazy idea" into a potential breakthrough. They removed the lifeblood from a heart - leaving behind a ghostly white shell - then injected new cardiac cells, bringing the organ back from the dead. The federal government wouldn't fund the idea: Grant reviewers said it was implausible. Medical journals wouldn't publish the initial results: Editors doubted them. But Sunday's study in the prestigious Nature Medicine journal is long-awaited validation for the researchers and a promising direction in organ transplantation and the fight against heart disease.
