    Claressa Shields made history in Rio as the first U.S. boxer to win back-to-back gold medals. But while the major media outlets praised her historic win, they forgot about her most important personal win. On Monday, the 21-year-old credited God for her success on Good Morning America after ABC anchor Amy Robach referenced her “difficult childhood.” How Shields’ past was difficult, Robach didn’t say. But it’s a story well worth telling. Shields grew up in Flint, Michigan with a father in jail and a mother with drug problems and male “acquaintances” who, Shields said, raped and sexually molested her. Her...

    Our solar system is in a unique area of the universe that's conducive to life, says John Webb and his colleagues at the University of New South Wales, who have carried out intensive study that threatens to turn the world of theoretical physics upside down. The team studied the fine structure in the spectral lines of the light from distant quasars from data from the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile with stunning results that showed that one of the constants of nature --the Alpha appears to be different in different parts of the cosmos, supporting the theory that our...

    SPACE (8/3) reports that a new modeling study indicates that life on Earth may be “premature,” and that the probability of life emerging throughout the universe in the distant future is 1,000 times greater than it is now. Study Lead Author Avi Loeb, with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, stated, “If you ask, ‘When is life most likely to emerge?’ you might naively say, ‘Now.’” He added that despite such inclinations, “we find that the chance of life grows much higher in the distant future.” The scientists conducting the research “determined that the main factor influencing the possible evolution of...

    The day Gil Levin says he detected life on Mars, he was waiting in his lab at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, watching a piece of paper inch out of a printer. Levin snatched the sheet and scrutinized the freshly inked graph. A thin line measuring radioactive carbon crept steadily upward, just as it always did when Levin performed the test with microbes on Earth. But this data came from tens of millions of miles away, where NASA's Viking lander was — for the first time in history — conducting an experiment on the surface of Mars. "Gil, that's life,"...

    It is a city said to be glamorous, historic, scenic, vibrant and charming. Nonetheless, Miami has been named the absolute “worst city to live in,” according to a meticulous new analysis of demographics and other data. Researchers from 24/7 Wall Street, a consumer and financial advisory site, based their conclusions on U.S. Census Bureau statistics from 550 American cities with populations over 65,000. They collected numbers on categories such as crime, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure, and leisure to make their judgments.

    LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Archbishop José Gomez tore apart the “seamless garment” argument that intrinsic evils and social ills are morally equivalent in the Los Angeles archdiocesan newspaper June 3.  Advocates of the “seamless garment” approach to moral issues and social justice, promoted by the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, often use it to suggest a moral equivalency between issues like abortion, poverty, and immigration.  “The hard truth is that not all injustices in the world are ‘equal,’” wrote Gomez. “We can understand this perhaps better about issues in the past than we can with issues in...

    When I was a student in the 1960s almost all scientists believed we are alone in the universe. The search for intelligent life beyond Earth was ridiculed; one might as well have professed an interest in looking for fairies. The focus of skepticism concerned the origin of life, which was widely assumed to have been a chemical fluke of such incredibly low probability it would never have happened twice. “The origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle,” was the way Francis Crick described it, “so many are the conditions which would have had to have...

Daleiden and his group, the Center for Medical Progress, began releasing videos in mid-2015 purporting to show Planned Parenthood officials trying to negotiate prices for aborted fetal tissue. Under federal law, donated human fetal tissue may be used for research, but profiting from its sale is prohibited. Planned Parenthood denied the accusation and called the probe politically motivated. Planned Parenthood said the raid showed Daleiden was "paying...

    For most pro-lifers, the answer to when human life is worthy of protection is clear: at the moment of conception. But some pro-choice protesters at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday gave answers that either do not hold up to any introspection, or are hardly answers at all. Protesters from both sides gathered in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building for oral arguments in a potential landmark abortion case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. The case involves a Texas law that protects women’s health and welfare by requiring abortion clinics to meet the kinds of medical and safety standards...

    There are moments in our national history that have called Americans to bend the arc of history towards justice. Each moment has required exceptional leadership. Today, we commemorate one such leader who illuminated our nation by his courage and dedication to the truth. Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. understood the American potential more fully than it was actualized at the time. He challenged the distorted conventional acceptance of a "separate but equal" citizenry. Instead, he drew upon that promise of our founding that every person is "endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights." Reverend King reminded communities across the...

    When Ben Carson was rising in the polls, Donald Trump was quick to attack the former neurosurgeon for being "pro-abortion not so long ago." The attack was more than a bit hypocritical because Trump himself was "very" pro-abortion not so long ago. In 1999, Tim Russert asked Trump if he would support a ban on "abortion in the third-trimester" or "partial-birth abortion." "No," Trump replied. "I am pro-choice in every respect." Trump explained his views may be the result of his "New York background." Now that Ted Cruz has attacked Trump's "New York values," Trump's views on abortion will be...

In their paper published in the journal Geology, the team describes where the fossilized cells were found, their testing techniques and why their finding is important. Scientists believe that life first came to exist on planet Earth approximately three and a half to four billion years ago, a time called the Archaean aeon, when there was not yet an ozone layer to filer out UV radiation, or oxygen...

    "Spirit-Given Faith Greets the Savior" (Luke 1:39-56) We're coming near the end of Advent, and it's time to greet the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ--not only at Christmas, but also when he comes again. Are you ready? Are you prepared? How will you greet him? Our Gospel reading today shows us how to greet him when he comes. In faith. What does that mean, "in faith"? And where does that faith come from? We'll find that out, too, as the word of the Lord comes to us today, under the theme, "Spirit-Given Faith Greets the Savior." In the Holy...

    In the past I have not watched The Voice, but took a slight interest this year when one of the contestants expressed an interest in the music career of Ricky Skaggs.

A third brother, Okel, died as a young man in the battle for Guadalcanal - WWII. I had no idea the season final for The Voice was on last night when my wife yelled upstairs to let me know Ricky was on. The 4 minute...

The man, his mother, and his lawyers, have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to save the man’s life. His attorney, Joe Nixon, told Breitbart Texas, “A criminal...

    Commenting on how some liberals claim Islam has nothing to do with radical Islamic terrorism, and how the leftist media report on the shooting at a Planned Parenthood office but totally ignore the nearly "60 million" babies killed by abortion since Roe v.

Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and in such films as Walking Tall, Soul Surfer, and God's Not Dead, made his remarks during a Dec. 1 interview with Steve Malzberg on NewsmaxTV.
