  • Ten Questions To Ask Yourself About Revelation 12

    Unsealed World News ^ | 4/28/17 | Gary
    As I've studied Revelation 12 and whether or not the astronomical alignment on September 23rd, 2017 fulfills the heavenly sign that the Apostle John saw, I've tried to poke as many holes in it as I can.  An argument is only strong if it can withstand continual scrutiny.  I've heard dozens of supposed rebuttals and arguments against it and I've even prayed that if this isn't the sign for God to show me where we went wrong in identifying it as such.  Yet after dozens of objections falling flat I find my confidence in this theory only growing.  More...
  • When Bill Nye Enlisted Science in the Service of Perversion

    Perversion is a strong word, but there is no other way to describe it. The musical presentation promoted by Bill Nye on his “Bill Nye Saves the World” show was perverse in every way. It was vulgar. It was vile. It was degraded. It was disgusting. That it was promoted in the name of science makes it all the more despicable.According to NaturalNews.com, which is billed as, “The world’s top news source on natural health,” Nye went “FULL LUNATIC” with his “vulgar transgender video.” The man known as “the science guy” has taken science to a freakish new low....

    "Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything.""Well tended garden is better than a neglected wood lot.""Reporters no longer ask for verification, thus they print charges no matter how outlandish they may seem, and once having done that, when the truth comes out, it's buried in the back page or never makes it on the air at all.""The reality is that zero defects in products plus zero pollution plus zero risk on the job is equivalent to maximum growth of government plus zero economic growth plus runaway inflation.""The...

    WND ^ | 04/26/2017 | Jack Cashill
    Former Obama Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin made news on Monday when he told the Wall Street Journal that the administration spun climate data to shape public opinion. What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Id say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, Koonin said. What is most shocking about the mini-Koonin flap is that anyone was shocked. Scientific showmen have been manipulating climate data as a way of shaping policy for decades. In 1983, for instance, a veritable supergroup of scientific rock stars, including the self-promoting pothead Carl Sagan, published a paper in...
  • An artificial womb successfully grew baby sheep and humans could be next

    Inside what look like oversized ziplock bags strewn with tubes of blood and fluid, eight fetal lambs continued to develop much like they would have inside their mothers. Over four weeks, their lungs and brains grew, they sprouted wool, opened their eyes, wriggled around, and learned to swallow, according to a new study that takes the first step toward an artificial womb. One day, this device could help to bring premature human babies to term outside the uterus but right now, it has only been tested on sheep. Its appealing to imagine a world where artificial wombs grow...

    It has come to my attention that anyone can call themselves a scientist these days. Anyone can call themselves anything these days, it seems, and the whole mass of humanity must comply. A man can call himself a woman. A woman can call herself a man. Beyonce can call herself a singer. And a guy who made soda volcanoes on television in the 90s can put himself forward as a scientific authority on all subjects. In fact, Bill Nye is apparently such a sciency scientist that he feels perfectly comfortable lecturing any news outlet who dares interview any scientist other...

Until it tells them fracking doesnt contaminate groundwater. Until it tells them genetically modified crops can be wholesome. Until it tells them the environment is actually getting cleaner, not dirtier. Until it tells them that fetuses have unique DNA, a heartbeat, and brainwaves. Until it tells them vaccines dont cause autism.

    A geology professor at Pomona College says she will prioritize students of color, immigrants, and low-income students for enrollment in a class with a strict 15-student cap. A flyer advertising the course on Southern California Earthquakes and Water, an introductory geological science class with a particular focus on the particular geologic challenges of Southern California, expresses a particular desire for students from a range of backgrounds whose varied perspectives will contribute to the course.

    A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington, D.C., often uses misleading news releases about climate data to influence public opinion. Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obamas administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Id say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data. He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has...

    In A Big Bang in a Little Room, Zeeya Merali describes the consensus among sciences biggest brains: The notion that a god made our universe is several rungs on the wackiness ladder above the idea that it was made by aliens. Nevertheless, Merali describes herself as both a believer in God and the holder of an Ivy League Ph.D. in theoretical physics, so she asks a good question: If God desired to send us a message, how would He do it? Thirty-two years ago Carl Sagans novel Contact included speculation about finding a code in the digits of pi, which...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 4-24-17 | MOTUS
    Its not surprising that a Liberal protest that began as an Earth Day pro-science march turned into another leftist anti-Trump rally. What else would you expect from an event that was inspired by the Womens March on Washington? The idea to create a march was inspired by the 2017 Women's March of January 21, 2017, and originated from a discussion in Reddit. Because if you read it on Reddit, it must be important.Hello, Im Dr. Science. Im not a real doctor but I do have a Masters Degreein Science!

    The Federalist ^ | April 21, 2017 | Robert Tracinski
    I am a Carl Sagan fan from way back. His 1980 TV miniseries Cosmos hit me at just the right age and inflamed a lifelong love of science. But weve had nearly 40 years to assess the long-term effects and see how Sagan unwittingly contributed to a trend that muddled public understanding of science. This weekends so-called March for Science is a perfect example of what went wrong. All you really need to know about the March for Science is that it is scheduled for Earth Day. The organizers may say the march is nonpartisan and has a variety of...

    Federal scientist cooked climate change books ahead of Obama presentation, whistle blower charges. Trump critics say they are concerned about the presidents proposed cutbacks for the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institutes of Health, his administrations skepticism about the cause of climate change and other science-related issues. However, organizers say the march was political but not partisan -- to in fact promote the understanding of science and defending it from attacks, including a proposed 20 percent cutback at the NIH. "It's not about the current administration, said co-organizer and public health researcher Caroline Weinberg. The truth is we...

    The Stream ^ | Jay Richards
    This weeks March for Science is odd. Marches are usually held to defend something thats in peril. Does anyone really think big science is in danger? The mere fact that the March was scheduled for Earth Day betrays what the event is really about: politics. The organizers admitted as much early on, though theyre now busy trying to cover the event in sciencey camouflage. If past is prologue, expect to hear a lot about the supposed consensus on catastrophic climate change this week. The purpose of this claim is to shut up skeptical non-scientists. How should non-scientists respond when told...

    The March for Science materialized as a global event on six continents and cheered on by scientists on a seventh, Antarctica. On the National mall, the crowd has been large, with thousands of people gathered on the grounds of the Washington Monument and lines for the security checkpoints stretching for more than two blocks. Rain has varied from light to borderline apocalyptic, but that didnt stop people from dancing when Thomas Dolby performed his 1982 blockbuster hit She Blinded Me With Science. The march proper is scheduled for 2 p.m., and will proceed down Constitution Avenue to the foot...

    The March for Science is tomorrow and no one in their right mind would say they are against it because of its name. First of all, you are standing against the right of people to march for whatever cause they wish. Second, you would be portrayed as someone who is against science. I am all for science. I think the climate changes. It always has and always will. Yet I have been portrayed as anti-science and a climate change denier by many who will be marching for things I certainly believe in. Just who does not believe in science? Its...
  • When Will Progressives Stand for the Scientific Method?

    Do you have march fatigue yet? The left, apparently, does not, so were in for some street theater on Earth Day, April 22, with the so-called March for Science. Its hard to think of a better way to undermine the publics faith in science than to stage demonstrations in Washington, D.C., and around the country modeled on the Womens March on Washington that took place in January. The Womens March was an anti-Donald Trump festival. Fine. I found it vulgar and demeaning to women, but its a free country. Science, however, to be respected, must be purely the search for...

    Of all the attacks on our civil society, the attacks on evidence-based science pose perhaps the greatest existential threat. Decisions being made about climate science and environmental protection at this critical time will shape the future of our planet. Advances in research are produced by the twin pillars of dedicated scientists and an activated citizenry who demand that the best science be applied to todays most pressing problems. Because scientists produce the facts that expose the lies currently being purveyed, the tip of the spear is pointed at the heart of science-based policy and research. But the imminent threat also...
