  • What is a marriage/wedding for?

    What is marriage? What is the purpose of marriage? What does it mean? I am asking this of a culture where it is normal to live together while unmarried, have children and give them names of either parent. Marriages don't necessarily last longer than just living together, so it is not a lifetime commitment, i.e. 'til death do us part.' The law no longer distinguishes between having a marriage license or not when people separate.... So with 'marriage' having lost any significance, what is the purpose of a wedding? In the past, a wedding celebrated the beginning of a new...

    The Danish Medical Association (Lægeforeningen) has recommended that no boys under the age of 18 be circumcised in Denmark. The association released its recommendation on Friday, saying that circumcision should be “an informed, personal choice” that young men should make for themselves. In a press release, the group said that when parents have their male children circumcised, it robs the boys of the ability to make decisions about their own bodies and their own cultural and religious beliefs. …
  • Oldest alphabet identified as Hebrew: Ancient Israelites turned Egyptian hieroglyphics into letters?

    Science News ^ | 12/05/2016 | Bruce Bower
    The world’s earliest alphabet, inscribed on stone slabs at several Egyptian sites, was an early form of Hebrew, a controversial new analysis concludes. Israelites living in Egypt transformed that civilization’s hieroglyphics into Hebrew 1.0 more than 3,800 years ago, at a time when the Old Testament describes Jews living in Egypt, says archaeologist and epigrapher Douglas Petrovich of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada. Hebrew speakers seeking a way to communicate in writing with other Egyptian Jews simplified the pharaohs’ complex hieroglyphic writing system into 22 alphabetic letters, Petrovich proposed on November 17 at the annual meeting of the American...

    In an area that does not exceed 180 meters square, the Kaaba contains three wooden columns which hold the Kaaba's ceiling. The wood used is one of the strongest types of wood and they were put by the prophet's companion Abdullah bin Zubair. They are more than 1,350 years old and are dark brown. The perimeter of each column is around 150 centimeters while the diameter is 44 centimeters. Each column has a squared wooden base. Between these three columns, there is a pillar from which the Kaaba's gifts are suspended. This pillar passes through all three columns and its...

Dylann Roof wasn’t screaming “Jesus is Lord!” as he murdered people in the Mother Emanuel Baptist Church. He didn’t quote the Bible to justify his actions. Islamic jihadists routinely scream “Allahu akbar!” as they are killing, and invoke the Qur’an and Sunnah to justify their actions. But for Van Jones and Paul Begala, it is simply not possible that Muslims might kill Infidels for reasons that are found within the Islamic religion. The poor dears must have been...

Tunisia’s autocratic Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fell in a matter of weeks, followed a month later by Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. Rebellions then broke out in Libya against the tyrannical Muammar Qaddafi and in Syria against Bashar al-Assad.

The 14-year-old had told authorities that the bus driver had refused to leave the tram stop, instead announcing over the loudspeaker that he would not drive anyone wearing a headscarf. […] But the Berlin Transport Company (BVG) say that after reviewing video footage, they believe that the driver asked her to leave the tram because she was eating a Döner kebab, something which is against their regulations, the Berliner Morgenpost reports. …

    The 400 year history of Thanksgiving as a holiday of thankfulness for God’s mercy to our founding forefathers and Natives has been replaced with a new motif on our omniscient college campuses: Thanksgiving is Racist! This new postmodern narrative says that Thanksgiving represents racism, crimes against Native Americans, exploitation, evil colonization, theft of native lands, and genocide (with no examples of course). Adherents even maintain that there is no evidence that the Thanksgiving story actually occurred (despite libraries of evidence written by men and women who were there). Yes, this all knowing generation has taken the mantle from their omniscient...

    HI, just got word my Niece's father died last night very unexpectedly. He drives tow truck for broken down bigger vehicles and was called out like midnight last night to go from NJ to NYC to pick up a truck. He got the truck and had some sort of issue on way back, veered off road in NY still, and people either saw it happen or found him around 2am. I live across country so I don't have ability to be there and know more or comfort my Niece or any family/relatives. He was not known to have heart or...

    Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

    Palestinians will soon get a chance to glimpse the small bedroom where their longtime leader Yasser Arafat spent his final years. The 5-square meter (54-square-foot) room is the centerpiece of the new Arafat Museum, which opens to the public on Thursday to coincide with the 12th anniversary of Arafat’s death. […] Arafat spent most of the last three years of his life in this bedroom on the ground floor of his Ramallah headquarters, known as the Muqata. Israel confined him to the building on Dec. 8, 2001, accusing him of masterminding a violent uprising at the time. He remained holed...

    Does prayer work? You betcha. The Bible tells us that “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" (James 5:16). Jesus also tells us to “keep asking” and gives us an example in a parable in Luke chapter 18 of a widow who repeatedly went to a judge asking for justice, and finally the judge responded because of her persistence. Our pleas and our petitions do make a difference. I have gone to all 50 states this year, and tens of thousands people have joined me in their capitals to pray for the future of this nation. It...

    I recently went to the Getty Villa on the Malibu coastline in California, and wandered around looking at the antiquities of ancient Rome and Greece. Currently, the display features some very intricate mosaics, decorated vases, and several funereal portraits that would apparently decorate the mummies of the aristocratic dead. What struck me most is how detailed, beautiful, and lifelike were the renditions of humans and animals. The lions snarled, the snakes writhed, the warriors flexed, and the portraits of the dead, almost all of them tragically young, gazed with hope and eagerness, and bright expressive eyes. Western art has always...

    SCIENTISTS have claimed that death may not be as final as we once feared – and that humans have souls that can leave the body after their hosts kick the bucket. It may sound like a supernatural myth, but the idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists.
