    I address some of the faulty arguments used to claim Islam isn't a false religion. I also explore how we should examine truth claims and compare Islamic growth rates with the popularity of previous heresies.

    Woman almost loses leg after infection, disease blamed on pedicure NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — The infection that a North Carolina woman contracted at a 'grade A salon' urged her to issue a warning to other pedicure lovers. According to a Facebook post, on June 22 Tracy Lynn Martinez went to get a pedicure at her local salon in Winston, North Carolina. The next day, she said that she had body chills, nausea, and dizziness. She tried to sleep it off but when she woke up her leg had swollen to three times its size.

    It is astonishing that scholars of religion refer so little to the Manichaean faith, which in its day -- roughly from the third century AD through the fourteenth century -- was a fully fledged world religion, which interacted with Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Zoroastrianism and Judaism.

    I’ve lost track of how many Schitt headphone amplifiers and digital converters I’ve reviewed, but their all-new Mani phono stage is a very different kind of product. Mani amplifies the minuscule voltages generated by a turntable phono cartridge, so your LPs can be played over AV receivers, desktop powered speakers, boom boxes, etc. The little Mani’s all-metal chassis measures a scant 5 × 3.5 × 1.25 inches (127 × 89 × 32 mm). It works with moving-magnet (MM) or moving-coil (MC) phono cartridges. Mani has four user-selectable “gain” modes (30-, 42-, 47-, and 59-dB), so it’ll sound great with any...
