  • No, Easter Is Not Derived From an Ancient Pagan Holiday

    04/10/2020 3:01:19 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 135 replies ^ | April 10, 2020 | Ashley Herzog
    Maybe you’ve seen the eyebrow-raising claims on the Internet or elsewhere in the media: rather than celebrating Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and triumph over crucifixion, Easter is really derived from a pagan holiday. Proponents of this theory point to symbols of rebirth and fertility, like eggs and bunnies, that we see at Easter as proof. But the foundation of the claim that Easter is a pagan tradition is the similarity in names: Easter, they say, is the English translation of Eostre, a Germanic goddess of fertility. (Others claim Easter got its name from the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar, or the...
  • [March 27, 2015] March Hares Hopping on the Rabbit Bandwagon

    Rabbits aren't just for snuggling. They are, in fact, for eating. Though rabbit meat's last heyday (at least in the United States) was during World War II when most of the beef was shipped to troops overseas, the consumption of rabbit meat is again on the rise. While some might find the notion of eating something so cute quite difficult to stomach (Whole Foods' decision to start selling the white meat at select stores in 2014 was met with boycotts and protested by groups such as the House Rabbit Society), the meat has historically been embraced by different cultures and...
  • Passing gas 101: What your flatulence patterns mean for your health

    Passing gas: Everybody does it – and no one wants to admit it. This embarrassing habit may seem foul, but breaking wind is simply an unavoidable byproduct of our daily digestion. In fact, the average individual can pass gas anywhere from 13 to 21 times a day. But your gaseous patterns can actually speak volumes about your health, especially in regards to your eating habits, and they may even serve as an indication of larger digestive health issues. “People who produce excessive amounts of gas and particularly foul smelling gas – if you’re eating a super high fiber diet, that...

    Almost nine months after a Missouri dairy was ordered to stop selling cheese made from raw milk, I share details of another hare-raising story from the Show-Me State: John Dollarhite and his wife Judy of tiny Nixa, Mo., have been told by the USDA that, by Monday, they must pay a fine exceeding $90,000. If they don’t pay that fine, they could face additional fines of almost $4 million. Why? Because they sold more than $500 worth of bunnies — $4,600 worth to be exact — in a single calendar year.

    Swedes will turn on their central heating this winter in the knowledge that it may be powered in part by the burning carcasses of thousands of rabbits. The creatures are being harvested from parks in Stockholm, shot dead, deep frozen and shipped to a plant in central Sweden where they are burned and used to heat homes. Some 6,000 rabbits were killed last year for biofuel and 3,000 have so far been culled this year, Stockholm-based newspaper The Local reported. It added that the effort to shoot the rabbits will be stepped up now autumn has arrived and the fallen...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Washington County's "Bunny Lady" is back in the hutch after violating a court order not to own or control animals for five years. Miriam Sakewitz, 47, was arrested again Tuesday at a Tigard hotel after an employee reported finding rabbits hopping around in her room. Problems for Sakewitz started in October 2006 when Hillsboro police found and confiscated nearly 250 rabbits in her home, including about 100 dead ones in freezers and refrigerators. Police said she broke into the facility where the survivors were being cared for in January 2007 and stole most of them back. Authorities...

    Straight from the land of the rising sun comes yet another phenomenon that can only make you wonder what they put in their drinking water. Move over African charity porn and make way for the humorously titled Catpoop One. Marvel as the American bunny special forces wreak righteous vengeance on the dastardly Arab camel terrorists (someone forgot their PC guidelines). This is Blackhawk Down meets Disney's Pixar coupled with a Kafkaesque surrealism with anthropomorphic proxies that only serves to highlight man's inhumanity to man.

Undeterred by its size, the grey heron, the largest bird of its kind in Europe, swooped down and gobbled the rabbit up in one mouthful, as these pictures show.

    Along a gritty stretch of Harrison Street just west of the Dan Ryan Expressway, cars and trucks zoom past in a whoosh of hot air and and blowing dust. Horns blare, sirens scream and every few minutes a city bus rumbles past, belching exhaust. In the background, the skyline rises like a mountain range of glass and steel. This is the urban jungle -- teeming with crowds, booming to a cacophony of sound, alive in a whirl of motion. But look closely. There -- along the sidewalk -- an Eastern cottontail rabbit hops down the cracked concrete. It perks its...

    As a disclaimer to the following, it is important to note that there is a part of mandate in the following, but also a part of research and hypothesis. It is not a Manifesto but the result of manifestations. Criticizing the following is fair and fine, of course, however some critics have for agenda to smear the information and informer in order to cover up their own professional disgraces and not have them addressed as an important issue. Most of these "enemies", however, I feel sorry for, for several reasons: 1. because they spend more on hiding than doing their...

    February 17, 2005 -- HAS Warner Bros. gone daffy? For Kids' WB's new show "Loonatics," a futuristic bugs Bunny loses his light-and-fluffy look to become a fierce, sharpclawed beast with superpowers. Warner Bros. That's what fans of the studio's classic cartoon characters might be asking after they get a look at the new, futuristic versions of some of their favorite animated heroes, which Warner unveiled yesterday. The Looney Tunes characters — six in all — have been "reimagined" (in studio parlance) for a new series called "Loonatics," which is set to air next fall on WPIX/Channel 11 as part of...

They had all been given the day off work AS THE morning chill rose from the River Tigris in Iraq’s most ethnically mixed city, the units began assembling, pulling on white gloves and proudly adjusting military tunics. Their ranks included grandfathers in ancient helmets, housewives trained to use machineguns, Beduin tribesmen, adolescent cadets marching behind their fathers, Kurds, Assyrian Christians and Sunni Muslims. Everyone got the day off work. All said they were marching in support of President Saddam Hussein and to...

    WASHINGTON, October 25 – The National Committee for Only One Holiday at a Time is issuing a formal protest of the overlap of holidays in our culture. Tonight, our local shopping center was putting up Christmas decorations, a few days before Halloween. "The overrunning of holidays, one into the other, robs each of these wonderful occasions of its cultural identity and uniqueness and its meaning," said Timothy Phares, President of the committee. "This is confusing our children, who are being confused enough by the educational and cultural structure," he added. "For the children, we need to step back and observe...
