ASTEROIDS, COMETS, AND METEORS ORIGINATED FROM EARTH: In the Earth's past there were powerfulRead More volcanic explosions propelling millions of tons of earth soil and rock (now asteroids and meteors which may contain organic molecules or organisms) into space. Read my popular Internet article, ANY LIFE ON MARS CAME FROM EARTH. The article explains how millions of tons of Earth soil may exist on Mars, and how debris we call asteroids and meteors could have originated from Earth. According to a Newsweek article of September 21, 1998, p. 12 that quotes a NASA scientist, SEVEN MILLION tons of Earth soil may exist on Mars! How could this be possible? Read and find out. Even if the right chemicals exist, life cannot arise by chance. The molecules that make-up life have to be in a sequence, just like the letters found in a sentence. Scientist and creationist, Brian Thomas explains: “Astronomers measure comets' masses and erosion rates to calculate potential lifespans. Sun grazing comets last fewer than 100,000 years.2 They thus confront secular astronomy which maintains that comets formed with the rest of the solar system billions of years ago. A solar system that old should have no remaining comets. How do secularists solve this dilemma? Reporting on Ison, The Independent said, "Comet Ison has taken millions of years to reach us travelling from the so-called Oort cloud – a reservoir of trillions and trillions of chunks of rock and ice, leftovers from the birth of the planets."3 Unfortunately, nobody has yet witnessed a single one of those "trillions and trillions of chunks." Going strictly with observational science, the "so-called Oort cloud" may exist only in the reservoir of the human mind. Clearly, secular astronomers invented the Oort cloud to rescue their billions-of-years dogma from a disintegration process that limits a comet's age—and thus the age of the Solar System—to thousands of years. When Ison becomes visible later this year, perhaps it will remind thoughtful viewers that the universe is quite young, just as Scripture teaches” (Brian Thomas, M.S., Science Writer at the Institute for Creation research).

Why doesn't this poor soul or in her case non-soul get the ACLU to fight for her. Those uselessRead More dregs will fight against anything associated with a church. It is true that some church goers sometimes go overboard in espousing their beliefs. I, however cannot think of a church goer taking up a complaint to the Supreme Court like Michael Newdow of Sacramento did. Looks like for you who think that church goers take things to extremes, to me it looks like the Atheists do.

If Jesus has, in fact, risen, then He's not kosher for Passover.

Absoutely!... Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No 2): a deep. spiritual journeythat ends in trueRead More heaven... and composed by a Jew (this is my take as one, sorry)
jMichael April 20, 2014 at 10:26 am
Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without resolving to know this symphony. It is myRead More understanding that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... A vision of our resurrection to an afterlife. It is the affirmation of a resilient and sacred Humanity. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong about this. Regards, jMichael

I agree, Barbara. A wedding is for celebrating, and from the reaction of the newlyweds andRead More congregation, this looks like a good start to any marriage.

This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.
Silver Line still not complete. (Patch file photo.)

It is not "months" behind schedule; it is years behind schedule. When I moved out toRead More Reston in 2007, the first phase was supposed to open in 2010. Then they revised the schedule and the budget and said it was supposed to open in the fall of 2013. Since then, there have been repeated pushbacks of the opening date. Now they're saying that a "critical" communications link doesn't work and will take a year to replace, but the line can open without it. That makes no sense. Merriam-Webster defines "critical" in this context as meaning "indispensable, vital". So if this system is really critical, I would now not expect the line to open for another year at least. In fact, at this point, I would be surprised if it ever actually opens at all.

He should have been FIRED long ago. That's how you reward incredibly poor planning. This is aRead More bigger fiasco than Obamacare. That line should be OPEN now, no ifs, ands, or buts. Every day that goes by with those stations built and all the access built and the trains available is a colossal waste of time and money.

Of course, Mr. Nowakowski will be praised. Today, no one is accountable for anything, particularlyRead More for failure and poor performance. Maybe his dog ate his homework, or maybe he he had a flat tire on the way to his office. So the Silver Line is months late and millions over budget, so what? Mr. Nowakowski still drew his salary and will go on to another well-paying job. Everyone is a winner...except the citizens of Northern Virginia.

No William,what she needs is about 50000 volts of electricity.Fry the fat yom up nice and crispy.
David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 01:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

Well, that's just about right, the average of the top 10 CEO salaries in VA is 390x that of theRead More average worker salary of $45,000. US Avg is 475x. Don't know why the average worker is complaining about wage stagnation and lack of jobs. Poor CEOs must work so hard to keep all that money out of the tax man's hands and the grubby hands of the worker! How can they possibly survive otherwise?
