    Joe Biden used an appearance on a late-night comedy show Wednesday to address a popular topic of speculation among Democrats: Would President Trump peacefully give up power if he loses November’s election? If Trump doesn’t, Biden told host Trevor Noah of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” then he’s “absolutely convinced” the U.S. military would step in to assure a transition to a new president. “I promise you,” Biden told Noah, “I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”

    Ea's duplicity can be traced to nine lines in the text, says Worthington....SNIP"What the people don't realize is that Ea's nine-line message is a trick: it is a sequence of sounds that can be understood in radically different ways, like English 'ice cream' and 'I scream,'" Worthington explained.Like "ice cream" and "I scream," Ea's words have multiple meanings that are phonetically the same. While a more optimistic reading might interpret Ea's comments as a promise of plentiful food to come, other more pessimistic readings could decipher his words as a flood warning.The lines in the flood story, written in Babylonian...

    Was Noah's flood geographically local or over the entire Earth?Speaking last week on an episode of the apologetics group Reasons To Believe YouTube channel, the acclaimed astrophysicist and Christian apologist stressed that when considering the flood of Noah, like any other biblical event, it is important to take into account the entirety of Scripture, not just the specific chapters in Genesis where it is recounted historically.

    Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Earlier today I saw the correspondence of an angry conservative who was tired of the negativity of other conservatives. He raged that all we do is continually point out the bad. He went on to accuse those who focus on the negative trends as cowards, treacherous, and treasonous...fat asses who...

  • The Messianic Zionist Religion Whose Believers Worship Judaism (But Can't Practice It)

    But the Noahides are a theological phenomenon of very recent vintage. It’s a form of Zionist mission, which seeks to create a world religion whose believers adore the Jewish people and the State of Israel – without belonging to either. The believers are required to accept the supremacy of Judaism but are not accepted into the Jewish people and are even barred from upholding such commandments as Sabbath observance. Anyone who wishes to be a Noahide is called upon mainly to recognize the Jewish people and its state. ... He called on them to renounce Christianity and to burn their...

    Did Noah Really Live to Be 950? Msgr. Charles Pope • February 25, 2019 • Noah – Lorenzo Monaco (1410)I occasionally get questions about the remarkably long lives of the patriarchs who lived before the great flood. Consider the ages at which these figures purportedly died: Adam – 930Seth – 912Enosh – 905Jared – 962Methuselah – 969Noah – 950Shem – 600Eber – 464Abraham – 175Moses – 120David – 70 How should we understand these references?

    According to ancient tradition, Noah’s Ark rested on Mount Ararat in the Armenian Mountain Range. Armenia’s coat of arms has Mount Ararat with Noah’s Ark on top. Armenian historian Movses Khorenatsi (410-490 AD) recounted the tradition that Noah’s son Japheth had a descendant named Hayk who shot an arrow in a battle near Lake Van c. 2,500 B.C. killing Nimrod, builder of the Tower of Babel – the first tyrant of the ancient world. Hayk is the origin of “Hayastan,” the Armenian name for Armenia. Ancient Armenians may have had some relations with the Hittites and Hurrians, who inhabited that...

    All modern humans descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, scientists say. Scientists surveyed the genetic 'bar codes' of five million animals - including humans - from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race. These bar codes, or snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells, suggest that it's not just people who came from a single pair of beings, but nine out of every 10 animal species, too

Footage of his stand-up show, from 2013, emerged ahead of his Australian tour, which starts in Melbourne next month. 'All women of every race can be beautiful,' Noah tells an audience in the footage which emerged online overnight. 'And I know some of you are sitting there now going, 'Oh Trevor, yeah, but I've never seen a beautiful Aborigine', he jokes.

    After France triumphed Sunday in the FIFA World Cup, “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah was ready to celebrate. “Africa won the World Cup! Africa won the World Cup!” he sang, before joking that “you don’t get that tan by hanging out in the south of France.” Noah was recognizing the multiethnic background of France’s team. It was a joke you might expect from Noah, a South African native and the son of a white father and black mother. But as Noah informed an audience recently in between scenes while filming his Comedy Central show, Gérard Araud, France’s ambassador to the...

    While President Donald Trump‘s election left much of the country in shock, Trevor Noah says the public doesn’t realize just how influential he and his voting base have become. In fact, Noah thinks we should be expecting a second Trump term. Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter in an interview that aired Sunday, the Daily Show host said voters have miscalculated the rise of far-right politics and its potential to grow. “I think people underestimate how laser-focused Trump and his supporters are,” he said, discussing the possibility of re-election. “I think people also underestimate how many people in America are willing...

    By Philip Cottraux First, some background info. A friend of mine posted a recent chat on her YouTube channel with an orthodox professor of Biblical studies who doesn't believe the first 11 chapters of Genesis should be taken literally. While he still maintains to be a Christian, he believes that the Garden of Eden, the flood, and the tower of Babel are myths that God used as symbols of his relationship with man. I thought I would present historical evidence for Noah’s flood to contribute to their discussion (I've linked the following blog to them on Twitter to read and...

In case you missed the reference to Shem, Noah’s son, it’s also the “Home of the Ark Dog” — two-thirds of a Biblical cubit long — and has swirly blue linoleum floors meant to mimic the ocean and a camel mascot named Humphrey, who declares that the gourmet hot dogs are flooded with flavor.
