  • NBC’s David Gregory: “Unlike Bush, Obama Understood We Still Felt Vulnerable”

    ……And former USA President George W. Bush “did not understand this?” Old MSM’s NBC’s David Gregory, in “making a statement” about the taking down of Osama Bin Laden, at the same time, CANNOT HELP but stick a jab in about former USA President Bush. This does not surprise in the least. This was going to happen, when a member of the Old MSM tries to “stick liberal bias” in the comments. What I hope though is that, this special moment in the life of America does not become the source of injecting the politics of bias.

    Tehran, Iran, Jul. 12 – Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the world will soon witness the demise of Israel, the government-run news agency Fars reported. “In the near future we will witness the rapid collapse of the Zionist regime”, Ahmadinejad told a crowd in the north-western city of Jolfa. “The nations of the region will record the names of states that support the Zionist regime alongside the Zionist’s crimes”, he added. Ahmadinejad caused an international furore last year when he publicly declared that the Holocaust was a “myth” and said that Israel must be “wiped off...
  • Indian man’s 13-inch tail

    Thousands of people are queuing up to worship a man with a 13 inch tail in India. Chandre Oram, from West Bengal, is regarded as an incarnation of Hindu monkey god Hanuman. He said: “People have a lot of faith in me. They are cured of severe ailments when they touch my tail. I believe I can do a lot of good to those who come to me with devotion.” However, doctors say his tail is a rare but known congenital defect and that he is not a god. Although it has made Mr Oram an object of devotion, it...

    KOLKATA (Reuters) - Thousands of people are flocking to an impoverished Indian village in eastern West Bengal state to worship a man they believe possesses divine powers because he climbs up trees in seconds, gobbles up bananas and has a "tail." Devotees say 27-year-old villager Chandre Oraon is an incarnation of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman -- worshipped by millions as a symbol of physical strength, perseverance and devotion. "He climbs up trees, behaves like a monkey and is a strict vegetarian, but he is no god and his condition is just a congenital defect," says Bhushan Chakraborty, the local...

    Genetic code They looked for differences that would help separate the human sequence from the chimp sequence. Fujiyama's team found just 1.44% of the DNA was different at the level of single letters of genetic code. These letters, A, C, T and G, stand for the nucleotides that make up the DNA of all living creatures. The nucleotides match up to make amino acids, which in turn string together into genes that control the proteins made by cells. There are vast stretches of DNA that do not make up genes and scientists are struggling to understand their importance. Fujiyama's team...

The event was sponsored by the Apologetics Association, the organization that brought Baptist minister Tim Wilkins to UWM to speak about homosexuality in October.

    Indian police have issued pictures of the Monkey Man killer, amid reports he has claimed his second victim. A pregnant woman died after falling down stairs at her East Delhi home as her family fled from the creature. Officers in Ghaziabad are offering to pay £75 to anyone who can capture Monkey Man on film. Around 1,000 officers are involved in the search. Vigilantes are taking to the streets frustrated at the police's failure to catch him. In Noida, a mechanic wearing a black outfit and fitting a description of the Monkey Man was beaten up. A second man was...
