    Yahweh is embedded in the DNA of every creation. DNA Christian author Steve Russell is sharing an interesting fact about our DNA of every creation. Did you know that the name of God is embedded in our every cell? There’s a code in our DNA that literally means Yahweh. “You know how an artist will sign their work so that in the future, it’s easy to see what the source of the work was,” Steve said. “So, in the human cells, in every human cell, there’s DNA. It’s a code that’s written in acid. ATCG is the name of the...

    After more than 40 years of studying humans and other primates, Stanford neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky has reached the conclusion that virtually all human behavior is as far beyond our conscious control as the division of cells or the beating of our hearts. (Of course, he had to.) Therefore, we mustn’t harshly judge such heretofore disdained folks as drunk drivers, serial criminals, Hamas terrorists, and those who bring 29 items to the “8 items or less” checkout lane. Sapolsky said: “The world is really screwed up and made much, much more unfair by the fact that we reward people and punish...

    Abstract The Coloured Progressive Matrices (CPM) was standardized in Palestine in 2011 on a sample of 257 children aged 6.0 to 11.5 years, tested individually. The sample obtained a British IQ of 85. Introduction We believe that no studies have been published of intelligence in Palestine. There are, however, two studies that may give a reasonable approximate estimate of the Palestine IQ. The first is a study of the intelligence of Arab school children in Israel, who could be expected to have approximately the same IQ as Arab children in Palestine, carried out by Lieblich and Kugelmas (1981). This reported...
  • Half of Vaccinated People Never Stop Producing Spike Protein, Study Found

    [H/T grey_whiskers]Remember how we were told that “the vaccine stays in the arm” and that “harmless spike protein is only produced for a couple of days.” They said they were sure of that, despite no data to confirm their statements.Well, sadly, it turns out that they lied to us. The data is now in, and it proves such claims wrong!A clever scientific study by Brogna et al., just published, detected the presence of spike protein in COVID-vaccinated people six MONTHS after vaccination - and excluded the possibility of cross-contamination of experimental data with wild-circulating COVID infections. the Scientists DidThe...

    A non-profit watchdog reported that the AAAS has received millions of dollars per year from the federal government. The AAAS publication "Science" is reviewing 2,600 of its own articles for possible "exaggeration."A top international science journal funded by the federal government recently acknowledged that thousands of its published research papers may contain misleading language.More than 2,600 of the papers from "Science," the peer-reviewed academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and one of the world's top academic journals, were examined in depth by another research journal, "Scientometrics." It found in a study that from 1997 to...
  • The crisis in modern science

    By definition, few things represent the pinnacle of human achievement. Among them are science, great art, free markets, great literature, philosophy, music, and American football. On that list, only science and football are modern inventions, and of those two only football is getting better. Science, unfortunately, is in crisis. I’ve written other pieces on science and academia, and no doubt will write hundreds more. But after having read two pieces today that touch on this topic, I thought I would share some thoughts with you. I often refer to Vinay Prasad in my writing because he is clear-thinking and an...

    Humans pumped so much groundwater out of the Earth that the planet has begun to wobble detectably on its axis, a new study has found. On its own terms, the magnitude of the new wobble is slight — a matter of millimeters, which puts it in the same approximate speed category as Earth’s slowly drifting continents. But the findings published earlier this month in Geophysical Research Letters show the extent to which human action — in the form of dam construction, groundwater drilling and the burning of fossil fuels — are impacting the very position of the Earth. They also...
  • Neanderthals lived in groups big enough to eat giant elephants

    Science ^ | February 1, 2023 | Andrew Curry
    On the muddy shores of a lake in east-central Germany, Neanderthals gathered some 125,000 years ago to butcher massive elephants. With sharp stone tools, they harvested up to 4 tons of flesh from each animal, according to a new study that is casting these ancient human relatives in a new light. The degree of organization required to carry out the butchery—and the sheer quantity of food it provided—suggests Neanderthals could form much larger social groups than previously thought.The find comes from a trove of animal bones and stone tools uncovered in the 1980s by coal miners near the town of...

    Before the allopathic Rockefeller establishment took over in the early 1900s and turned healthcare into a “medical industrial complex”, homeopathic scientists understood (and still do) viral particles as merely the product of dead or dying cells. They are dead, inert and harmless outside the body. Story over.The Rockefeller establishment embraced Louis Pasteur’s stolen “germ theory”, which supposes that viral particles can invade a body from the outside. Of course, it’s called a theory, because it’s never been proven.By the 1950s, the pseudo-science of virology was on the rocks, as the germ theory crowd realized that viruses do not reproduce themselves....

Amazingly, that false narrative has done a 180-degree turnabout and they are now saying that “infectious disease experts say that people who have experienced breakthrough infections with omicron could have enhanced immunity, or what some are calling super immunity.” So in the blink of an eye, it’s gone from you can’t catch it to you will catch it and receive super immunity! Well, because stealth Omicron. “A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.” Proverbs 14:25 (KJB) To...

    UCSC science writers examine the evidence for ghost hunting, chemtrails, cryptozoology and moreEach year, the graduate students of UCSC’s Science Communication Program research a different topic for the first GT issue of the new year. This year, with so much abuse and misuse of science floating around, especially on social media, we decided to take on the topic of pseudoscience. It’s a wildly varied list of subjects, and whether they’re fun and seemingly harmless, have implications for believers’ pocketbooks, or are the basis for sinister conspiracy theories, it’s edifying to know their scientific basis—or lack of one—and to consider...

  • Earth is losing its shine and scientists suspect climate change is the culprit

    Over the last two decades, Earth has lost a little bit of its shine -- and no, not just because of the world-changing pandemic. By studying the glow of our humble space orb, scientists have discovered a surprising dimming. They hypothesize the underlying cause could be related to climate change. In a study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters on Aug. 29, researchers examined the Earth's "albedo" by analyzing earthshine at the Big Bear Solar Observatory in California between 1998 and 2017 -- equivalent to around 1,500 nights of data. This analysis allowed them to assess how much light...

Sebelius said, “I think what President Biden has done is balance between what the science says and trying to cajole, encourage, make it easy for people to follow the science. [cut] She added, “It’s a lot like secondhand smoke. You have a right to be a smoker. The science is very clear what smoking will do to you, what cancer will be caused, what...

    Warp Drive remained in the world of fiction until 1994 when Mexican Mathematician Miguel Alcubierre presented a mathematical model under which a human-piloted craft could theoretically exceed the speed of light. A decade passed, but quietly in the background, NASA brought in scientist Dr. Harold G. “Sonny” White in the mid-2000s to continue developing the Warp Drive. White made refinements to the original model, and in 2003 and 2011, significant leaps were made in Warp Drive theory, seemingly making the impossible a little more possible. Even more revisions have been, and today, the leading model for faster-than-light travel is dubbed...

    Human Events ^ | June 22, 2021 | Gary Gindler
    The first UFO term in the title means, of course, “Unidentified Flying Objects;” the second means “United Fakenews Organizations.” Why suddenly are UFOs trending everywhere? Previous UFO eruptions occurred in 1947, 1952, and 1965. However, the UFO furor of 2020-2021 differs from all others because it is the first substantial UFO scare after President Carter created the Department of Education in 1979. Formally, it all started six months ago, when the requirement for U.S. government agencies to reveal what they know about the UFO had been sneaked into the massive COVID-19 relief bill with significant bipartisan support. The support was...
  • Karl Popper vs. global warming: "Climate Change" isn't science at all by Popper's standards. It's an unproved assertion that CO2-drives global warming, conveniently lacking any means of falsification

    American Thinker ^ | 03/20/2021 | Jay Hendon
    Karl Popper, one of the 20th century's most influential philosophers of science, argued against classical inductivist reasoning in science. He argued that a scientific hypothesis must be falsifiable -- similar to the statistician's practice of proving the null case rather than the hypotheses itself. Questioning the claim of human-made climate change, I am often dismissed as a "denier" and asked why I don't accept that in this particular arena, "the science is settled." But anthropogenic global warming (AGW) a.k.a. "climate change" isn't science at all by Popper's standards and is, in fact, a perfect example of that which Popper rejected:...

In recent months, we caught Reiner putting on his legal-analyst [dunce?] cap, accusing President Trump of "negligent homicide" and "criminal endangerment." On this morning's New Day, Reiner veered into the foreign policy field, declaring that for months, he's believed that only "regime change" in the US could bring the pandemic under control.
