  • A prayer for Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi

    News reports indicate that master terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been gravely wounded. Islamic fanatics posting in their websites are asking for prayers for his "prompt recovery." Zarqawi's crimes are splayed on our TV screens every night. The profile of the man coming out from them is that of a coward who is prompt to flee the field of battle when confronted directly by professional soldiers, but who is eager to go after defenseless people, decapitating unarmed hostages or defending the circumstantial killing of his fellow Muslims as demanded by the cause of Islam. The irony is not lost by...

    Swiss technicians are to use a special insulating foam to wrap up a glacier that has been shrinking under the summer sun. Carlo Danioth, in charge of the slopes at the Andermatt resort in central Switzerland, says the Gurschen glacier is to be partially covered with 3,000 square metres of PVC foam from the beginning of May. Mr Danioth says the aim is to halt the melting of the glacier, a phenomenon that has been attributed to global warming. "If the trial is a success, we'll wrap the other part of the glacier too," he said. He added that the...

    Dear Reader, Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global “Peak Oil.” "Are We 'Running Out'? I Thought There Was 40 Years of the Stuff Left" Oil will not just "run out" because all oil production follows a bell curve. This is true...

    Calling the approval of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts "the straw that broke the camel's back," a group of Christian activists is in the beginning stages of an effort to have one state secede from the United States to become its own sovereign nation. "Our Christian republic has declined into a pagan democracy," says Cory Burnell, president of ChristianExodus.org, a non-profit corporation based in Tyler, Texas. "There are some issues people just can't take anymore, and [same-sex marriage] might finally wake up the complacent Christians." Burnell is leading the charge for a peaceful secession of one state from the union, and...
