    The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?(Matthew 16:1-3)And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known,...

    Everyone is African: How Science Explodes the Myth of Race I think if we were honest enough to admit it, we are all bigoted in some way. Our gender or religion doesn’t really qualify us as superior to anyone else, but we tend to fall back on these identities and, consciously or not, assume they give us a reason to feel that we are not only in possession of a special truth, but that it grants us the privilege to feel better than others. When we examine the issue of race, however, the bigotry is inherent because racial groups are...

    Find opens debate about whether man's earliest ancestors came from Asia and were diurnal or nocturnal CHICAGO--A skull and jawbones recently found in China is the oldest well-preserved primate fossil ever discovered ? as well as the best evidence of the presence of early primates in Asia. But the fossil raises the tantalizing possibility that remote human ancestors may have originated in Asia and stirs up debate about the nature of early primates. In the words of Robert D.

    According to Brooklyn Borough President, the spirit of Selma is about adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. According to Obama, it’s about replacing black workers with illegal aliens through amnesty. Obama invoked the “spirit of Selma” to justify his executive amnesty policies Friday in an interview with Sirius XM’s Joe Madison. “The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though they’ve grown up as American, that’s not who we are,” Obama said. “That’s not true to the spirit...

    Recent scientific findings date their arrival earlier than ever thought, sparking hot debate among archaeologists For much of its length, the slow-moving Aucilla River in northern Florida flows underground, tunneling through bedrock limestone. But here and there it surfaces, and preserved in those inky ponds lie secrets of the first Americans.For years adventurous divers had hunted fossils and artifacts in the sinkholes of the Aucilla about an hour east of Tallahassee. They found stone arrowheads and the bones of extinct mammals such as mammoth, mastodon and the American ice age horse.Then, in the 1980s, archaeologists from the Florida Museum of...

    Indian DNA links to 6 'founding mothers' By MALCOLM RITTER, AP Science Writer NEW YORK - Nearly all of today's Native Americans in North, Central and South America can trace part of their ancestry to six women whose descendants immigrated around 20,000 years ago, a DNA study suggests. Those women left a particular DNA legacy that persists to today in about 95 percent of Native Americans, researchers said. The finding does not mean that only these six women gave rise to the migrants who crossed into North America from Asia in the initial populating of the continent, said study co-author...

    One of the most common questions asked by students of the Bible concerns the relationship between Israel and the church. We read the Old Testament, and it is evident that most of it concerns the story of Israel. From Jacob to the exile, the people of God is Israel, and Israel is the people of God. Despite the constant sin of king and people leading to the judgment of exile, the prophets look beyond this judgment with hope to a time of restoration for Israel. When we turn to the New Testament, the same story continues, and Israel is still...

    Archaeologists from the University of Tübingen in Germany have found eight extremely well-preserved spears -- an astonishing 300,000 years old, making them the oldest known weapons anywhere. The spears and other artefacts as well as animal remains found at the site demonstrate that their users were highly skilled craftsmen and hunters, well adapted to their environment -- with a capacity for abstract thought and complex planning comparable to our own. It is likely that they were members of the species Homo heidelbergensis, although no human remains have yet been found at the site... excavation in an open-cast brown coal mine...

    SIR – In his headlong rush to replace Trident, Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, seems to be overlooking the basic question of whether it remains viable for Britain to continue independently developing and maintaining its own nuclear submarines (report, June 18). He should take into account the chronic squeeze on British defence funding, the limited number of hulls it can afford, ever more stringent safety standards, and the long-term erosion of Britain's nuclear expertise. By developing an independent design for the new submarine, the Government is opening itself up to allegations that the Trident replacement programme is just an excuse...

    Oscar Wilde famously wrote, "I like men who have a future and women who have a past." We can thus assume that, were he with us today, he would turn up his nose at Donald Berwick and offer Marilyn Tavenner his most charming smile. This is Berwick's last day as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Tavenner is his replacement. If it's not obvious why Wilde would beam on the latter, it soon will be. First, however, it's necessary to recall a sentence from Obama's first address before a joint session of Congress.

    Q. In the Old Testament, the terms "Israel," "Jacob," and "Jew" all seem to clearly be applied to the grandson of Abraham, the son of Isaac, the man Jacob and his physical descendants (Gen. 32:28; 35:10). But in the New Testament, the terms "Israel" and "Jew" are used in passages which are more difficult to understand which some interpret as teaching that faithful Gentiles are described as "Israel" or "true Jews" (e.g., Rom. 2:28-29; 9:4; Gal. 6:16). Can you shed some light on this? A. I believe that much of the confusion concerning the use of the term “Israel” in...

    In others words, when God begins to bring the Jews back into their land He gave them, Christ will return! The phrase “will return” is omitted from most modern translations of the Bible since the Masoretic text (upon which the majority of modern translations of the Old Testament are based upon) and the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament) do not include it. But the Dead Sea Scrolls copied some 150 years before the birth of Christ and over 1,000 years older than any previously discovered manuscript of the Bible includes this very phrase! The passage reads as...

The tools were unearthed at the site of Jebel Faya in the United Arab Emirates, a team reports in the journal Science. The results are controversial: genetic data strongly points to an exodus from Africa 60,000-70,000 years ago. Simon Armitage, from Royal Holloway, University of London, Hans-Peter Uerpmann, from the University of Tuebingen, Germany, and colleagues, uncovered 125,000-year-old stone tools at Jebel...

But they did not shy away from using whatever means necessary to accomplish what they viewed as the vitally important task of making things right between their community and Israel.

    At A mere 5ft 3in, Prince has always relied on the highest of heels to give him a lift. But his penchant for platforms could have stacked the odds against him. At 47, he has been told he needs a hip replacement. The singer believes years of strutting on stage (and energetic dance routines) have taken a toll on his joints. "He used to wear high-heeled boots every day and doctors told him that may have contributed to his condition," a source told U.S. magazine the National Enquirer.
  • (Vanity) Why Luttig Could Win Easy Confirmation

    After thinking long and hard about this issue, I have come to the conclusion that Luttig will be a sail, if nominated as the replacement for Justice O'Connor. The DemRats can beat up Bush on not nominating a minority/woman, and yet grudgingly confirm. While it won't be politically expedient, we will get a true conservative on the court. Alternatively, if the DemRats defeat Luttig for his conservative ideology, but yet blame Bush for not nominating a minority/woman, Bush can always come back with Janice Rogers Brown and say here is your minority and woman, now confirm. It can easily be...
  • Diversity Pool for High Court Justices Too Shallow?

    If President Bush wants to make a "diversity" pick for a Supreme Court nomination, must he swim shallow or deep in the pool of conservative minority and female possibilities? Conventional wisdom last week suggested that Bush, after tapping Judge John Roberts, a white male, for the position of chief justice, was unlikely to name another white male for the remaining high court vacancy, the seat currently held by Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female justice. Of course, conventional wisdom immediately after O'Connor announced her impending retirement held that Bush would maintain or increase diversity on the high court in...

    WASHINGTON --Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist was taken to the hospital with a fever on Thursday, the second emergency treatment for the 80-year-old ailing justice in two months. Rehnquist, who has cancer, was taken to Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Va., for evaluation after developing a fever, said Supreme Court spokesman Ed Turner. The chief justice spent two nights at the same hospital in July for observation and tests, also after running a fever. Rehnquist had been working at the court earlier in the day and has maintained a full-time schedule while being treated for thyroid cancer. He has refused...
  • Women told HRT causes cancer

    COMBINATION hormone replacement therapy can cause cancer, the UN's agency on the disease has concluded. The International Agency for Research on Cancer said yesterday, based on evidence from recent studies, it has reclassified hormonal menopause therapy from "possibly carcinogenic to humans" to "carcinogenic to humans". The declaration from the World Health Organisation's cancer agency, widely regarded as the international authority on which substances cause cancer, comes after recent research linked HRT to breast cancer. The analysis found oestrogen and progestogen menopause therapy also increases the risk of endometrial cancer when progestogens are taken fewer than 10 days a month. The...
  • Let's All Just Get Along - (David Limbaugh on Biden; true liberal intentions for SCOTUS nominees)

    The Senate's most self-satisfied senator, Joseph Biden, has established a website asking citizens to join him in pressuring President Bush to pick a liberal Supreme Court nominee so that a contentious confirmation battle can be averted. Well, yes, I'll admit he didn't quite put it that way, but if the Left's currently favorite sycophant, Joe Wilson, is entitled to spurts of "literary flair," why shouldn't the rest of us be as well? Let's look at what Biden actually said because it is revealing of the liberal Democrat mindset toward the judiciary, the Constitution and the will of the people. Biden...
  • The Purposeful Selection of a Supreme Court Justice - (only one upholding original intent!)

    In a more perfect United States there would be a separation of politics and government rather than an illegitimate separation of church and state. The fact that there is absolutely no mention of the latter in the US Constitution hasn’t stopped ideologues and activists from forcing that bit of fiction down our collective throats. Neither has the constitutionally derived authority of We the People thwarted them from hijacking the act of governing for the benefit of politics. I don’t blame those who haven’t a clue as to how our government is supposed to work for their lack of knowledge. US...
  • Judicial Havoc: Part III - (confirmation process should NOT be a demeaning process for nominees!)

    In addition to the havoc wrought by the judiciary in our times, there is the havoc wrought on the judiciary itself by others. Some have blamed the murders of a judge not long ago, and the murder of another judge's family, on critics of judicial activism. But, in each of these cases, the motive seems plainly to have been personal animosity growing out of a judge's ruling against the particular individuals concerned. It is doubtful if these murderers had ever read a law journal article or a Federalist Society paper on judicial activism. It is one of many signs of...
  • The Real Extremists - (watch out for this "Praise O'Connor" bandwagon among the Democrats!)

    The Democrats' orgy over retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is just one fraudulent component of their grand con game in preparation for war over her successor. Oh, sure, they approve of O'Connor's steadfast protection of the Court's pro-abortion precedent. And they appreciate other positions she took in furtherance of their policy agenda, but she's hardly their ideal jurist. After all, she sided with the majority in "selecting" George W. Bush president. Their recent, unified celebration of O'Connor is part of their cynical calculation to position themselves as mainstream and Republicans as extremists. They see this as an essential...
