    "...I’d urge you to read a fascinating article in this Sunday’s New York Times. It turns out that America’s less religious citizens are far more likely to believe in things such as ghosts and UFOs than people who attend church. The author, psychology professor Clay Routledge, locates this phenomenon in the quest for meaning..."For instance, my colleagues and I recently published a series of studies in the journal Motivation and Emotion demonstrating that the link between low religiosity and belief in advanced alien visitors is at least partly explained by the pursuit of meaning. The less religious participants were, we...

    The entire debate about what it means to be "Muslim" and shariah-compliant might be solved with a quick lesson in Arabic grammar. This is because the word "Muslim" contains in its Arabic meaning its own definition.

    President Obama took a break from saving the icebergs to weigh in on what he believes to be the true meaning of Christmas – loving tiny trees. The president, along with the first lady, delivered their homage to foliage during an appearance on a television program recognizing the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas." "For half a century, people of all ages have gathered around the tv to watch Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang teach us the true meaning of Christmas," Mrs. Obama said during a taping of ABC's "It's Your 50th Christmas, Charlie...
  • The Meaning of Six hundred and Sixty Six (666)

    10/18/2014 8:14:08 AM PDT · by do the dhue · 144 replies
    666 has meaning behind it. John the Revelator was Hebrew. He would have known that each Hebrew letter of the alphabet (which is a number too) has a meaning and/or symbol to it. In the scripture it was written as six hundred and sixty six. Not 666. I find the meaning of this is to be "in the end times, a head will emerge, Satan (snake), and will hook people into sin(disbelief in my book). Allow me to show you how it works by viewing this: I believe that the letters used to write six hundred and sixty six would...

    Some of you know that I write the Question and Answer Column for Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly. I like doing that as it imposes a kind of disciplined writing on me, where I must answer questions very briefly, in about 400 words or less.A question recently came in about a topic that I have not written much about here on the Blog. I’d like to reproduce the question and answer here in order to include the concept in my blog compendium and also to encourage you, if you do not read my column in the Sunday Visitor to know about...

    Dear friends and relatives, How are you? I HOPE YOU HAD TIME TO PRAY in silence before Baby Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament so as to celebrate Christmas for the One WHOSE BIRTHDAY we celebrate and not for all the other motives and desires that we have allowed our secular world in recent years to instill into our heads and hearts. How many of our children have been spoiled in waiting for presents at Christmas and have not learned from their parents that Christmas is a time to bring to this divine Baby presents of prayers, sacrifices and adoration?...

    Here is the link to my original post, yes I think I was the 1st. I have a CPA friend that is a self taught biblical scholar. He believes we grow into the meaning of our names, and always wants to know what you named the baby. So one day (10/15/2008 ) I did what he does and research the meaning of "someones" name :-).This is what I came up with.... Sarah : Princess (in Hebrew)... Louise : Renowned Fighter.... Heath : From the Outer Lands... Palin : Who will serve at the table….. So... She is: The Princess,...

    Transparency? Ha! (Big Government) President Barack Obama has won praise from the media — and from himself — for putting the White House visitor logs online. Yet the visitor logs may hide more than they reveal. The White House is still holding back “tens of thousands” of visitor logs, according to congressional testimony last week by Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, who also added that “the Obama administration is less transparent than the Bush administration.” We also know that some of the most important presidential visitors don’t even walk into the White House. The administration meets K Street lobbyists...

    Moonbeam, Gandolph, Honey, Melody, John…There are three specific names a man is given in his life. These names will have an effect on him. If he maintains his name and does not change it, a man can affect the aura of his name and what it comes to mean.The first name a man is given is his last name. The name he inherits, his family name. It is said that the best inheritance a person can leave is a good family name. To keep one’s family name untarnished should be the goal of all good sons. To make it stand...

    First I admit that I took the meaning of her name from another thread and expanded and documented it a bit, but it is truly very interesting. You entered: SarahThere are 5 letters in your name.Those 5 letters total to 20There are 2 vowels and 3 consonants in your name. What your first name means: Muslim Female Variant of Sara: Pure. Happy. Hebrew Female Princess. In the Bible, Sarah was the wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac. Her name was originally Sarai (quarrelsome), but God commanded that her name be changed to Sarah before the birth of her son. Biblical...

    "I am sorry, that with reverence I did not entertain thee as thou art" By Yervand Kochar At an early stage movies, and arts in general, were not, yet, divided into entertainment and pure art. Art for its own sake is a relatively new and in a way conventional concept. I can't imagine Leonardo DaVinci thinking about whether he should entertain or create something of an eternal value. He did what he felt doing in tune with the sensibilities of his time and people.Great art is always entertaining butentertainment, even great entertainment,cannot be art. In other words, Chaplin was entertaining...

Among the scholars mentioned were Donald Freeman, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Mark Turner, Daniel Dennett, and Noam Chomsky.... Instead, Chodat referred the audience to the works of radical atheist and Brights Movement member Dennett, who is listed on the site as one of the movement’s “enthusiastic...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2007 – Janet Southby has been a driving force behind the Walter Reed Society since the group’s beginning in 1996. The Walter Reed Society works to enhance patient support and improve morale by funding special unmet needs of soldiers and their families during treatment and recovery. Southby served as first vice president of the group until being elected president in 2001 and has held that position ever since. “I have been privileged to serve with a dedicated group of volunteers on the Board of Directors and in other volunteer positions for the past six years,” said...
  • Part of Something Bigger

    Western Individualism is most pronounced in America, and especially the part of the country where I grew up and now live, Texas and Oklahoma. Yet that attitude resounds in the early pages of our nation’s history, from a Tea Party in Boston Harbor to those shots fired at Fort Sumter replying what they could do with their tariffs on cotton. Often that undercurrent cuts against identity with a group. "I am an individual." Echoing in that statement are the words of Patrick Henry emblazed in our psyche, "Give me liberty or give me death!" Identity with a group somehow seems...

    ...Those who say that Mr. Bush's campaign for global democracy is overreaching (again, including this writer) should also note that democ- ratization is a thread that runs through American history. One of President Wilson's goals in World War I was to make the world safe for democracy. That is not quite the same thing as making it democratic, but it's a big step. Even before Pearl Harbor, in the State of the Union message in January, 1941, President Roosevelt proclaimed a goal of ensuring "four essential human freedoms." They were freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, and...
