    The Vatican announced this week that Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich has been selected to be Pope Francisí successor after the 79-year-old pontiff hits the age of retirement next year. Cupich told worshipers yesterday that he was ďso very grateful and humbled by the news that he would be given the opportunity to wreak havoc upon the Church while wearing white.Ē Cupich, 67, will receive his ďwhite hatĒ in Rome on December 18, 2017, the day after Pope Francis turns 80.

College science classes are hostile to women and minorities because they use the scientific method, which assumes people can find reliable truths about the natural world through careful and sustained experimentation, concludes a recent dissertation by a doctoral candidate at the University of North Dakota. Laura Parson, a student in the universityís education department, reviewed eight science class syllabi at a ďMidwest public universityĒ and said she discovered in them a hidden hostility to women...

The Second World War flagship, the pride of Hitlerís naval fleet, sank so quickly that it must have been deliberately aimed at the ocean floor by desperate commanders, according to the programme, made by the Titanic film director, James Cameron. Semi-crippled after an aircraft-launched torpedo knocked out her rudder, the Bismarck was hounded across the Atlantic by a chasing British naval pack. Then, on 27 May, 1941, in what...

While Trump was never popular outside of his loyal slice of GOP voters, a raft of new polls show his national position hitting new lows, including with groups that are supposed to form his base. America's widespread loathing for Trump puts further pressure on Republican delegates to deny him the nomination in July if he falls short of a majority, a move that would set off an ugly civil war but that some in the party believe would be necessary to stave off generational damage.

The poll shows that Trump, who frequently boasts in interviews and campaign appearances that he would beat Clinton in November, would lose a one-on-one contest against her by double digits.

It observed that the ocean's tiny plant community was "poised for marked shift and shuffle". The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    In our planet's early history, 720 to 640 million years ago, thick sheets of ice covered the majority of the surface, as the Earth was locked in a deep freeze. But explosive underwater volcanoes changed the chemistry of the Earth's oceans and were key to breaking the planet from its icy state, according to a new study. Researchers at the University of Southampton believe underwater volcanoes helped to thaw out "Snowball Earth", and even led to runaway chemical chain reactions, which created the conditions for an explosion of life on Earth.

    Donald Trump is actually right about something: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is not a natural-born citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president or vice president of the United States. The Constitution provides that "No person except a natural born citizen . . . shall be eligible to the office of President." The concept of "natural born" comes from the common law, and it is that law the Supreme Court has said we must turn to for the concept's definition. On this subject, the common law is clear and unambiguous. The 18th-century English jurist William Blackstone, the preeminent authority...

From architecture to literature to political system, Rome is where it all began. But in his latest book, Richard Alston wants us all to think a little more critically about our beloved Rome.

In one month, Trump has dropped to 32%, Rubio up to 18%, Cruz at 10%, and Carson dropping all the way to 5%. Now, this early polling in Massachusetts isn't a good gauge of anything in a vacuum, but considering what we're seeing in other polls, it appears that Senator Cruz is directly siphoning off votes from Carson.

    If you've ever felt like someone was watching you, you may have attributed that awareness to a sense of unease or a prickling on the back of your neck. But there's nothing psychic about it; your brain was simply picking up on cues. In fact, your brain is wired to inform you that someone is looking at you even when they're not. "Far from being ESP, the perception originates from a system in the brain that's devoted to detecting where others are looking," writes social psychologist Ilan Shrira. This concept may sound confusing, but it actually makes a lot of...

    LOST AMID all the fireworks in that CNBC debate of the GOP presidential candidates was the answer Texas Senator Ted Cruz gave to a question about the Federal Reserve, advocating that the dollar be tied to gold. Other than Ron Paul, who has long been a gold-standard advocate, and his senator son, Rand, no other presidential candidate has pushed serious monetary reform since yours truly ran 16 years ago. This is stunning, given the immense damage our central bank has inflicted on the U.S. and the global economy. In fact, few economists, politicians or pundits are even aware of the...

    Edward Snowden, reported on the facts known to it concerning UFOs. According to the documents, which Snowden copied to the CIA, the U.S. government has long known that UFOs exist and are managed species more advanced than humanity. These species are not alien, and our earth, only more advanced. They live here for billions of years, and far ahead of us in development. The CIA stores data tracking systems and deep-sea sonar, but they have the status of state secrets, and even the scientists do not have access to this data about these objects. This kind of intelligent Homo sapiens...

    This just in: After a blistering exchange of words between the two opponents neither chose to respond to a call for a truce. Early this morning a tweet from Billy B. (name withheld at the request of relatives) seemed to further incense an already irate presidential candidate Donald Trump. The tweet: "He's a no good meanieĒ was sent from Billy's headquarters about 6 AM. Seemingly a commentary on Mr. Trump's often-flamboyant rhetoric, Billyís Tweet was not well received. The night before Trump had mocked, not only Megyn Kelly, Eric Erickson and Roger Ailes but Jeb Bush and John the Baptist...

    LONDON Ė The discovery of well-preserved blood and proteins in a supposedly 75-million-year-old dinosaur fossil has stumped secular scientists and led one Christian apologist to herald the findings as evidence of a young Earth. A team of scientists at the U.K.ís Imperial College London carefully examined eight Cretaceous dinosaur bones discovered in North America, scrutinizing the bonesí interiors with an electron microscope. The researchers were stunned when they discovered what appeared to be red blood cells in one of the specimens. Upon closer examination, the British scientists identified an internal structure within the dinosaur cells, complete with nuclei and amino...

    Two weeks ago, courtesy of the investigative work of Nafeez Ahmed whose deep dig through a recently declassified and formertly Pentagon documents released earlier by Judicial Watch FOIA, we learned that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad. In his words: "According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ĎIslamic Stateí as a direct consequence of the strategy, but described this outcome as a strategic opportunity to ďisolate the Syrian regime.Ē Now, in a follow up piece to his stunning original investigative report...
  • Is the Wood Recently Found on Mt. Ararat from the Ark?

    From the conclusion: "Conclusion If the wooden remains of the Ark were to be found on Mt. Ararat, then samples of that wood would be expected to yield C-14 dates of between 20,000 years and 50,000 years, consistent with the C-14 dates of pre-Flood wood found fossilized in the geologic record of the Flood. Even though the true age of such fossilized pre-Flood wood should be only 4,500 years or so old, around the date for the biblical Flood, these grossly inflated C-14 dates obtained in conventional radiocarbon dating laboratories are due to those laboratories ignoring the very much less...

    That glass of water in your hand is dinosaur pee, apparently. Not like it's unfiltered, but a science YouTube video posted this week raises the interesting tidbit that, since dinosaurs were around for 186 million years and water molecules are everlasting, it's a foregone conclusion that every drop of water on the planet passed through the prehistoric species once upon a time. "While most of the water molecules in your 8 ounce glass have never been drunk by another human, almost every single molecule has been drunk by a dinosaur," the video by CuriousMinds says. "So drink up and enjoy...

    Jeremy Trentelmanís cardboard fort for his kids came with windows, trap doors and a green slide. Then the city of Ogden, Utah, gave him 15 days to take it down. With the help of their kids Max, 3, and Story, 2, Trentelman and his wife, Dee, cut and taped the cardboard to build two towers, trap doors, tunnels, and a slide. They built the whole thing last week with the help of their friend, Byron Owens, and his two kids Satoria and Oliver in Ogden, Utah. His friendís daughter also wrote a sign on the door of the fort reading,...
