    The Telegraph ^ | December 11, 2014
    Nathaniel Branden, who has died aged 84,was for many years the lover and chief disciple of the American writer and libertarian monstre sacré Ayn Rand (1905-82); the story of their relationship and its bitter ending served to illustrate some of the pitfalls of her philosophy of ethical selfishness.When they first met in 1950 Nathan Blumenthal, as he then was, was a 19-year-old Canadian psychology student at the University of California, Los Angeles. Ayn Rand, a Russian-Jewish emigrée in her late forties,was the bestselling author of The Fountainhead (1943), a torrid ideological melodrama of Nietzschean individualism, whose merciless celebration of the...

    ....Obama may be the President of the United States, but for a few minutes on Monday, he was also Stephen Colbert, outgoing host of "The Colbert Report." Obama, who sat down for an interview with Colbert in Washington, surprised the host and took over the taping for a segment. "You've been taking a lot of shots at my job, I've decided to take a shot at yours," Obama said before taking over for Colbert on "The Word," a segment where Colbert (in this case, Obama) says a line or two before a witty word or phrases flashes to the right....

    ....Obama’s approval rating hit 38 percent this fall and currently hovers in the very low 40s. Presumably, then, upwards of 124 million (out of 308 million total) Americans are totally clamoring to see a movie about the first date experienced by Obama and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama. That movie, a serious drama titled “Southside With You,” is slated to begin shooting on location in Chicago in July.

    Mormon leaders have acknowledged for the first time that the church’s founder and prophet, Joseph Smith, portrayed in church materials as a loyal partner to his loving spouse Emma, took as many as 40 wives, some already married and one only 14 years old. The church’s disclosures, in a series of essays online, are part of an effort to be transparent about its history at a time when church members are increasingly encountering disturbing claims about the faith on the Internet. Many Mormons, especially those with polygamous ancestors, say they were well aware that Smith’s successor, Brigham Young, practiced polygamy...

    Snip -------------------------------------- http://www.pnl.gov/chembio/emerge.htm In addition, naturally occurring outbreaks of disease can provide ammunition for use by biological weapons terrorists. For example, 40 members of the Aum cult are known to have traveled to Zaire during the most recent outbreak of Ebola. Although scientifically problematic, the successful culture of the hemorrhagic Ebola virus would constitute a formidable weapon in the hands of a group with a demonstrated willingness to use it.

Two members were given death sentences, one was given a life sentence, and two were given 10 and seven-year jail terms.

However, it claims to have millions of members. 'A demon' Zhang Fan and her father Zhang Lidong were given death sentences by the Yantai...

Good luck, kids! – Because the folks that would hire you for said summer job can just as easily get a fifty year old these days, and frankly they’d rather have those.

    Organizers of the so-called People’s Climate March expect more than 100,000 people to fill the streets of midtown Manhattan on Sunday, demanding action on global warming. It promises to be one of the largest cult gatherings in U.S. history. And it will take place two days before President Obama and world leaders gather for an “emergency” climate summit at the United Nations. The march is the brainchild of Bill McKibben, a celebrated environmental activist. In May, he issued a “call to arms” in a jeremiad published in Rolling Stone magazine, which exhorted climate change cultists to descend on New York...

A religion teaches; it is a form of life that gives one peace and happiness. That is what they want to turn [Islam] into as well.” In other words, he is telling his audience to be on guard against those who try to water down, or should we say moderate, the teachings of Islam.

Universalism is the belief that a God of love and goodness never would allow people to be separated from him forever, which means everyone ends up in heaven.

It is a common election-year posture for lawmakers from the same party as the sitting president, especially one whose popularity has waned, as Mr. Obama's has. But Democrats' recent moves to...

    NAIROBI, Kenya (CBSDC/AP) - A local pastor has ordered all women who attend service at Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church to refrain from wearing undergarments while attending so that they can more easily receive the spirit of Jesus Christ.

According to the UK Metro, most women did, in fact, show up at...
