A cycle of rage and revenge keeps Afghanistan one of the world’s most dangerous countries.
“She was a great devoted mother,” Ashley Shaffer said of her friend Regina Lester, who has been charged in connection with the death of her 3-year-old daughter. “She had some issues with drugs and things like that,” Shaffer also said of Lester.
The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.
The article says:
“The most contentious current example is the doctrine of original sin, which is being debated by Christians around the world. Many, especially evangelicals, still cling to the notion that two proto-humans eating an apple is the source of all death and suffering in the world. In this traditional view, even animal suffering originated with human sin.”
This is what passes for “scholarship” today. This article is written by a “Dr.” of science and religion and he can’t even get his history correct about Galileo and Darwin.
First Galileo was not persecuted by the Catholic Church, if he was the Pope would not have had Galileo’s book published for the next 30 years after his death. Next, people visualize that Galileo was burned at the stake or something. He was only under house arrest for 3 months because of a dispute with the Pope, who was one of Galileo’s best childhood friends and not for his scientific discoveries.
Next this author says “as evolutionists point out, we now know a lot about the first humans and one thing we can say definitively is that there was no original Adam and Eve” Clearly he has NEVER reviewed the evidence of mitochondrial EVE or mitochondrial Adam before.
In the end, this is a clear example of what is wrong with modern science today. They ignore any logical contribution by religion and adhere to an apriori fallacy.
The author (a self identifying mystic) wrote: “It was no longer a book that I read; it was a book that conjured up the dogma I’d been conditioned to believe without question.”
This is why beliefs are not enough!!! They must be a justified true belief and not be a belief afraid of hard questions.

A Syrian man who was detained in France, and apparently exposed a terror ring in Germany, told officials that the cell contained more people than the three who were arrested last week, according to officials familiar with the man’s testimony.
Here is an article were the author clearly NEVER was taught the clear teachings of Christ but instead was taught a culturally relevant Christ instead. A Christ that would never whip people out of the temple or call them harsh names like “fox”, “child of hell”, “vipers” or “hypocrites”.
Sad really that with all the historical information we have at our fingertips, we follow the world instead of Christ.
