Talk About Splitting Hairs

First we hear that Benazir Bhutto was assasinated by a guy who shot her, then blew himself up. Then we start hearing that, no, she wasn't shot, she was killed during the explosion when she hit her head on a piece of the sunroof while trying to duck back in the car. Now they are saying that the government is covering something up by saying she wasn't shot when the video shows the guy shooting her.

New video indicates Bhutto shot

Does it really make any difference. She was killed by the guy they have on video, whether the bullets did it or the explosion, or she just fell as a result and hit her head - what difference does it make? Maybe the guy emptied his clip and missed every shot - it happens. What advantage would there be in claiming she wasn't shot when she was? If there was a cover up, wouldn't it be more beneficial to hide who he was and especially any connections he may have? Just sayin'.

Thy Kingdom

Never be persuaded for one single moment either by the man who attacks Christianity, or by the man who defends it, into believing that science and religion are out of harmony with each other. Of course we need to be very careful to draw a distinction between scientific facts and scientific hypotheses; and to draw a distinction between Biblical declaration and human interpretation of its meaning. I stand for no man's interpretation of the Bible, not even my own, but I stand for the Bible. I am interested in every hypotheses of science, but I hold in reserve my judgment, and ask for ascertained fact; and when I find the ascertained fact, and the simple statement of Scripture, I find that they are one.
-- G. Campbell Morgan in Sermon - The Kingdom: "Thy Kingdom"

Does It Have Visible Inclusions?

Largest diamond in galaxy

Astronomers discovered the largest diamond of all times in space. The weight of the precious stone reportedly makes up ten billion trillion trillion carats or five million trillion trillion pounds.

The space diamond is virtually an enormous chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 kilometers in diameter. The stone is located at a distance of 50 light years from Earth, in the Constellation Centaurus.

They must recycle the news because this was reported back in 2004 and I mentioned it then. It's the same diamond.

Don't Forget the Christians in North Korea

Martyrdom awaits North Koreans on Christmas

In a nation where being a Christian can bring the death penalty for the "offender" and his entire family, where tens of thousands of Christians are held in terminal prison camps, and the populace is taught to revere its dictator as a god, there will be martyrdom for Christians on Christmas Day, according to an international ministry.

Keep them in your prayers.

Global Flim Flam

Hundreds of scientists reject global warming

A new U.S. Senate report documents hundreds of prominent scientists – experts in dozens of fields of study worldwide – who say global warming and cooling is a cycle of nature and cannot legitimately be connected to man's activities.

Here's 10 good questions about global warming. I'll post the first four below:

1. What is the perfect temperature?

If we are to embark on a lifestyle-altering quest to lower the temperature (or at least minimize its rise), what is our goal? I don’t ask this flippantly. Can we demonstrate that one setting on the global thermostat is preferable over another? If so, what is it, and how do we get there? And, once there, how do we maintain it? Will we ever have to “heat things up” again if it drops below that point?

2. Just what is the average temperature of the earth?

At any one time there are temperature extremes all over the planet. How do we come up with an average, and how do those variations fit in with our desire to slow global warming?

3. What factors have led to global warming in the past, and how do we know they aren’t the causes of the current warming trend?

Again, I don’t ask this in a judgmental way. There is no argument that warming cycles (or cooling, for that matter) have been a part of earth’s history. Why are we so sure this one is different?

4. Why is there such a strong effort to stifle discussion and dissent?

I’m always troubled by arguments that begin, “Everybody agrees...” or “Everyone knows...” In fact, there is a good deal of dissent in the scientific world about the theory of man-made global warming. A large (and growing) segment of those who study such things are questioning some of the basic premises of the theory. Why should there be anything wrong with that? Again, this is a big deal, and we should have the best information and opinion from the best minds.

Fair questions one and all.

Silence ... I Kill You

Top Iranian cleric: Wear a headscarf or die

“Women who do not respect the hijab and their husbands deserve to die,” said Hassani, who leads Friday prayers in the city of Urumieh, in Iranian Azerbaijan.

“I do not understand how these women who do not respect the hijab, 28 years after the birth of the Islamic Republic, are still alive,” he said.

“These women and their husbands and their fathers must die,” said Hassani, who is the representative of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in eastern Azerbaijan.

The women, their husbands and their fathers must die - their mothers, not so much.

Alternative Fuel?

I think this takes the term a bit too far.

The fastest eco boat on the planet will attempt to break the round the world speed record using fuel made from human fat.

I wonder who thought of using human fat as fuel for a boat anything. Only seven liters of the bio-diesel is from human fat, but still. I think someone may be non-compliant with their drug treatment plan. What's next? A brilliant plan to use the millions of aborted babies as a fuel source? And instead of burial or cremation you'll be forced to donate your body to make bio-diesel?

It's All About Power

The earth is your fuhrer

"When the chips are down I think democracy is a less important goal than is the protection of the planet from the death of life, the end of life on it," he says. "This has got to be imposed on people whether they like it or not."

Who Needs the Death Penalty?

Certainly not this guy.

It runs counter to what you would expect but when you treat evil with respect and try to play fair with it, it grows far worse. You're both playing a different game and evil knows no rules. That's why no gun zones don't work and our revolving door justice system is doing nothing to prevent crime. We must have a firm and strong hand against crime.

I find it strange that they are banning smoking in movies because -

"the primary reason is that cigarette smoking is a hazard and we should avoid depicting it in movies and on television,"

but violence is glorified to such a degree it boggles the mind - in movies, video games and music - and of course, the excuse is that watching violence in movies or video games doesn't influence anyone to commit violent acts.

For all the knowledge we have in this country, in the world, there is one thing we lack - wisdom.

But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? Man does not comprehend its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living (Job 28:12-13)

Huck, Mitt, Rudy, McCain blame you for global warming

I saw most of this debate Wednesday and when I heard this question asked, and answered, I couldn't believe my ears.

I thought about posting my thoughts on this election earlier but kept putting it off. I'm not excited about any of the front runners at all. I'm not sure why conservatives are jumping on the bandwagon of any of them.

Huckabee - I don't like how he has previously handled (read 'raised') taxes at all, I'm very uncomfortable with that. I'm also uncomfortable with the way he seems to be using Christianity. I could be wrong but he seems more of a huckster than the real deal. I pass.

Romney - Like his business sense. He was Governor of Massachusetts though. That's not a plus. He also seems like a huckster to me. He knows how to put the mask on and say what you want to hear. Sidenote: Don't care a wit about his religion - a complete non-issue. I pass here, too.

Giuliani - I really like what he did for New York, especially after 9/11. He handled that so well. Like the previous two candidates, he's not really a true conservative though. I like him better than the others but mostly that's because of his leadership during 9/11, beyond that he doesn't excite me.

McCain - Doesn't do anything for me.

Fred Thomson - I like Fred. I'm comfortable with Fred. There are no areas I find questionable in him as far as being President. He should be the top guy as far as I am concerned. I like his style, he's not out there giving the song and dance, he does things in his own way, he'll say the unpopular thing when it needs to be said, and he doesn't go along with the crowd. He's the conservative candidate. He's not flashy. That's a major plus for me, but apparently not for most people. Too bad, because there is so rarely substance behind the flash. Vote for Fred.

And then there's this:

Unfortunately, his older posts are gone, but he left a letter for his family that will bring tears to your eyes.

Excessive Force?

At Last!

People for whom indignation is a way of life -- and there seem to be an increasing number of such people -- repeatedly have outbursts of outrage whenever the police fire a lot of shots at some criminal.

People who have never fired a gun in their lives, and have never had a split-second in which to make a decision that could mean life or death for themselves or others, are often nevertheless convinced that the police used excessive force.

Colorado Church Killings

It's horrible to see these shootings, the Omaha Mall and these church shootings, and my heart goes out to the victims and their families. There is a difference in the the second church shooting that is worth a look.

2 Fatal Shootings at Colorado Religious Sites

Wearing combat boots and carrying an assault rifle and at least one pistol, the gunman, apparently without provocation, opened fire in a parking lot and shot four people, one of them fatally, as bystanders dashed for cover. There were about 7,000 worshipers inside the church when the shooting erupted, a church official said.

The Colorado Springs chief of police, Richard Myers, said that after the parking-lot shootings, the assailant ran into the 10,000-seat church with his high-powered rifle, and was confronted by an armed church security guard, who shot and killed him. Neither the gunman nor the victims in Colorado Springs were immediately identified by the authorities.

Security guards in the church were armed and were able to stop the gunman before he could kill anyone else. If not for that fact, the gunman would have had free reign to shoot until he ran out of bullets.

Again, police were not on scene until it was all over. I'm not blaming them, merely pointing out what is true in most cases and why people need to be able to defend themselves. This gunman thought he would meet no resistance in what he thought was a gun-free zone. He didn't go down to the local gun range or police station to start shooting randomly - even crazy people know better.

No-Gun Zones Kill People

Or, at least make it very easy for criminals to kill people.

Firsthand account of mall shooting

Honestly, and as God as my witness, when I saw him shooting and as watched for a few seconds trying to figure out what he was going to do and what I should do, the thought that when through my mind was, “If I had a gun, I have a perfect shot.”

Yes, a perfect shot. I had a full side profile, I was close, and no one was visible behind him execept a wall. I had a clear shot during the second round of fire.

When I realized that I had no gun, fear instantly struck me, along with anger, and severe panic.

I ran hard.

I am very angry at the city of Omaha and the mall for their stupid laws that nearly cost me my life. The laws protected no one, and in my opinion, caused people to die.

It took FOREVER for the cops to get there, I estimated the time as 10 minutes but the news says 6.

It's not their fault, but cops are never there (except by shear luck) until it's too late. You can't rely on them to save you. They will fill out the paperwork, interview survivors, and notify the next of kin - and if the bad guy got away, hopefully they will find him. No guarantees.

Western democracies are voting for more and more socialist programs and the people who live with socialist programs want to get the hell out! People risk life and limb trying to get out from under those regimes. Reality trumps theory - get a clue.

Where Psychiatry Goes Wrong

Why so many Americans today are 'mentally ill'

Thus we have the spectacle of troubled people coming to mental-health experts with serious personal problems – emotional conflicts, fears, obsessions, compulsions and perhaps delusions rooted in early trauma, or in seriously flawed family relationships, or in buried resentments toward cruelty and injustice that were never resolved but just festered and grew. Yet, instead of being helped to understand where they've gone wrong, or where their negative programming, unhealthy relationships and destructive attitudes came from so they can correct them and find genuine healing, they're given clever drugs designed to chemically trick the body and mind into "feeling better."

And then, when they discontinue taking the drugs, they risk serious deterioration of their condition. But isn't that exactly what happens when we just mask symptoms and ignore root causes?

Moreover, why do even the smartest and most educated of our experts today tend reflexively to ignore root causes?

Because root causes have to do with God and our relationship, or lack thereof, with Him.

I guarantee that many people who read that last sentence either glazed over it or were somehow put off by it.

I'll say it again using different words: We need to wake up to the spiritual dimension of life or we will never be able to understand what goes wrong with us, or to genuinely resolve our problems.

Unfortunately, right now many of us are in love with the idea that there is no God. Books currently riding high atop national best-seller lists include "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything" by Christopher Hitchens, "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins and "The End of Faith" by Sam Harris – all of them unapologetically rabid atheist manifestos.

For an atheist, the problem here is that although you can still be a good engineer or a skillful surgeon, if you're trying to help people who are full of rage and conflict and plagued by dark thoughts and malevolent inner voices urging them to kill people, you're worse than clueless. Worse because your lethal combination of prideful arrogance and utter lack of comprehension of what you're actually dealing with will inevitably lead you to "fix" such problems in ways that not only don't help people, but vastly multiply their woes – and those of their victims.

Did They Get You to Trade your Heroes for Ghosts?

Dennis Prager says Baby Boomers Owe America's Young People an Apology

Our generation came up with two truly foolish slogans that also ended up robbing you of childhood.

One was, "Never trust anyone over 30." Our infantile attitude toward adult authority has inflicted great harm on you. Because of it, many baby boomers decided not to become adults, and this has had disastrous consequences in your lives. It deprived you of one of the greatest needs in your life -- adults. That in turn deprived you of something as important as love -- parental and other adult authority. With little parental authority, you were left with little personal security, few guardrails and a diminished sense of order in life. And we transferred this denial of authority to virtually all authority figures, from teachers to police.

The other slogan whose awful consequences we baby boomers bequeathed to you was, "Make love, not war." Our parents had liberated the world from immeasurably cruel and murderous regimes in Germany and Japan -- solely thanks to waging war. But instead of concluding that war could do great moral good, we sang ourselves silly with such inane lyrics as "Give peace a chance," as if that deals in any way with the world's most monstrous evils. So we taught you to make love and not war. And we succeeded.

We made you anti-war and almost completely sexualized your lives. We told you that having sex was terrific or at least to be expected, even in early teens, and that your only concerns should be avoiding sexually transmitted diseases and getting pregnant. And if you did get pregnant, we made sure that you could extinguish the life you were carrying as effortlessly and guiltlessly as possible.

Rude & Crude

Mark Steyn sheds some light on the underbelly of society: When it's no country for old men

"A society's first line of defence is not the law but customs, traditions and moral values," wrote Walter Williams of George Mason University recently. "They include important thou-shalt-nots such as shalt not murder, shalt not steal, shalt not lie and cheat, but they also include all those courtesies one might call ladylike and gentlemanly conduct. Policemen and laws can never replace these restraints on personal conduct."

"Restraint" is an unfashionable concept these days.

What's Peace Got To Do With It?

Muhammad teddy haters: Died in the wool

We've heard it before, "convert or die." Or at the very least, do everything the way Islam demands – or die.

If we don't see it that way, then what do we to make of vicious, threatening mobs reacting to an innocuous and innocent action of a British teacher and her 7-year-old students?

If we're to walk the same paths we've been pushed into, particularly since the 9/11 attacks in the United States, we're to consider mobs as just a "small part" of Islam.

Just as we were told after cartoons in Danish newspapers last year sparked violence across several continents, causing damage, injuries and death – those mobs represent just a "small part" of Islam.

Just as when a speech of Pope Benedict was deliberately taken out of context to reflect on Islam, leading to violent demonstrations and mobs demanding his death – we're told to consider it just a "small part" of Islam.

Just as in the premeditated vicious street attack and killing of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh because Islamists didn't like the subject matter of his films – we're told to consider it just a "small part" of Islam.

Just as in the death threats issued against people because Islamists don't like what they say or think – consider author Salman Rushdie, journalist Oriana Fallaci and Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali. There are many others.

Considering the pattern, it's hard not to consider these threats and this violence just the normal, peaceful religion of Islam in action.

There's a similarity in all these events – and so many more it would take pages to list them –and that is when there is a perceived slight to Islam; the reaction is mob violence, destruction and murder – always justified by Islam, the religion of peace.

Save the Children!

Get them out of government schools! Protect your children!

When a Des Moines public school encouraged an event it characterized as a "gender-bender," where boys dressed as girls and girls as boys, dozens of families – and perhaps as many as 200 – pulled their kids out of the high school permanently.

Americans need to start waking up and taking appropriate action. Don't wait for leaders to arise. Be a leader! Take responsibility – especially for your own family, your own children!

That's what the parents in Iowa did – finally. When more parents take this action, we will be on our way toward taking America back. It won't be because we elect people to the local school boards. It won't be because we elect the right president. It won't be because we elect one party or the other to a majority in Congress. It will be because a remnant of American citizens remembers we are supposed to be a self-governing people and do what is necessary to protect our children and, thus, the future of this nation.

We're seeing more of this kind of child abuse on a daily basis in America – and it is no accident. It is not a matter of chance. It is not the exception; it is the rule. This is where we are all headed unless you take control of your life and the lives of your children today.

Come Out of Her My People

Mob bay for teachers death

Fanatics demanding Mrs Gibbons' execution by firing squad streamed out of mosques yesterday after prayers — grabbing machetes, knives and clubs.

The hate-filled protesters — whipped into a frenzy by religious leaders — converged on the presidential palace as it emerged Gillian was an INNOCENT victim of a vindictive school secretary.

Pictures of Gillian, 54, were burned as hardline clerics in pick-up trucks chanted through loudhailers: “No one lives who insults the prophet.”

Hundreds of riot police refused to intervene — even though the demo threatened to spiral out of control. Fearful officials moved their prisoner to a different jail for her own safety.

Hundreds of placard-waving extremists marched on the city’s Unity High School — where Gillian taught.

She was jailed even though the bear, used in a project on animals, was named by her PUPILS after one of their classmates.

Demonstrators then headed towards the nearby British Embassy — before security forces finally stopped them.

Don't EVER talk to me about your so called religion of peace - I am so over it. There is no peace in Islam - body pieces maybe - not peace. No way, no how. The actions of the people do not show it. And it's not just a few extremists either, don't even go there. It's way beyond that. Action speaks louder than words. Words are meaningless without action to back them up. I'm not listening, but I am watching.

The good people who are Muslims need to get a grip, think real hard about the way things are and seriously consider who they are worshiping. Is it a God of love? Really? A God of love wants to kill a woman over a teddy bear? Or cartoons? Hate to rock your world, but no. Never.

Your God is not big enough to take insults? Your God is not big enough to avenge Himself? In His time? Then your god is way, way, way too small. He is not GOD. He is not a God of peace. He is a god you have to carry. Sorry, the truth hurts sometimes.

We've all been deceived, don't feel too bad. We all have to come out of deception, the whole world is deceived. So much so that I doubt anyone can fully get clear of it before their death. It's most important to start where you are and work your way out of the mess, if you are honestly seeking GOD, willing to admit you have had it wrong in the past and willing to obey the truth you learn, then you will make progress. GOD will slowly reveal Himself to you. If not, then you are where you are going to be. It's not easy to let go of all that you thought was true your whole life, but you will be glad you did.
