    ARE THESE INTERPRETATIONS TWISTING THE WORDS OF JESUS AND THE BIBLICAL WRITERS? “This generation” (Mt. 11:16; 12:39; 16:4; 17:17; 23:36; 24:34) REALLY MEANT some other future generation. “In a very, very little while” (Heb. 10:37) REALLY MEANT thousands of years later. “The end is at hand” (1 Pet. 4:7) REALLY MEANT it was not at hand at all, but rather far distant. “The time was short” (1 Cor. 7:29) REALLY MEANT the time was a long time off. “It is the last hour” (1 John 2:18) REALLY MEANT millions of hours later. Judgment to occur at Jesus’ return in his...
  • DAVID ROSE: How can we trust global warming scientists if they keep twisting the truth

    Daily Mail ^ | 2/11/17 | David Rose
    They were duped – and so were we. That was the conclusion of last week’s damning revelation that world leaders signed the Paris Agreement on climate change under the sway of unverified and questionable data. A landmark scientific paper –the one that caused a sensation by claiming there has been NO slowdown in global warming since 2000 – was critically flawed. And thanks to the bravery of a whistleblower, we now know that for a fact. The response has been extraordinary, with The Mail on Sunday’s disclosures reverberating around the world. There have been nearly 150,000 Facebook ‘shares’ since last...
  • Elizabeth Warren and liberalism, twisting the ‘social contract’

    Elizabeth Warren, Harvard law professor and former Obama administration regulator (for consumer protection), is modern liberalism incarnate. As she seeks the Senate seat Democrats held for 57 years before 2010, when Republican Scott Brown impertinently won it, she clarifies the liberal project and the stakes of contemporary politics. The project is to dilute the concept of individualism, thereby refuting respect for the individual’s zone of sovereignty. The regulatory state, liberalism’s instrument, constantly tries to contract that zone

    For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: – Revelation 22:18 I've seen some incredibly stupid and misguided initiatives by "conservatives" in my day, but this one takes the cake. Because the Bible has been rewritten to conform with the agenda of "liberals," a self-described "conservative" is spearheading an effort to rewrite it to his liking. If you think I'm joking, read on.

    New York Daily News ^ | 11/27/2005 | THOMAS ZAMBITO
    Convicted killers are walking out of state prisons, thanks to a series of controversial rulings by judges who decided the jailbirds were charged with the wrong type of murder. In bizarre cases of justice gone wild, the Daily News has found that even murderers who meant to kill their victims are being put back on the streets. In a typical case, lawyers for Brooklyn chef David Policano, 47, admitted he was guilty of intentional murder, a second-degree murder rap. But then they argued he should be freed because he was convicted of a different type of second-degree murder, depraved indifference...
  • The Karl Rove Story: Are Liberals and Their MSM Congenital Liars or Just Morons? (Great!)

    07/19/2005 8:14:04 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 52 replies · 1,572+ views
    "Karl Rove did no wrong. There was no “malicious attempt to smear Wilson” nor was there any counter campaign against Wilson, other than Rove’s warning to Matt Cooper that Wilson was way off base when he implied that he had been sent to Niger at Dick Cheney’s request." I’m beginning to agree with Michael Savage, that Liberalism is a Mental Disease. Today the MSM is engaged in a concerted effort to destroy Karl Rove and George Bush by deliberately lying about what President Bush said about the Rove Investigation and how the President will act after the investigation concludes. They...

    Twisting The Light Away New Scientist vol 182 issue 2451 12 June 2004, page 36 A novel trick with light has got physicists in a spin. Pitch your photon like a corkscrewing curveball and you can push bandwidth through the roof, flummox eavesdroppers and perhaps even talk to aliens. Stephen Battersby investigates IT DOESN'T look like much, just a plain box about half a metre long. Nonetheless, this is the prototype of something with seemingly magical properties. Fire a beam of its laser light at the dust sitting on your tabletop and the dust motes will begin to dance around...

    Associated Press (link is to another FR Thread) ^ | September 25, 2004 | AP (link to to another FR thread)
    Jennifer Loven is the AP reporter responsible for the over-the-top biased article "Bush, Kerry Twisting Each Other's Words" filed today. As noted in that thread, she is also author of a hit piece back in June pretending that the Bush Administration was being damaged by Richard (Yellowcake Fraud) Clarke: "Bush not able to dispel questions"HEREWhat is not known is that she has NO BUSINESS covering the Presidential campaign or the Presidency in general for the following reasons (hat tip to PowerLine Blog): 1. Her husband, Roger Ballentine, has donated over $7000 to various Democrat candidates and the DNC in the...

    Voters not only angry, but unmoved by good fortune JAMES HOWARD GIBBONS wonders why conservatives take so little joy in their domination of U.S. politics at nearly every level. As this no-holds-barred election campaign proceeds, American voters are reported to be not only sharply divided but unusually angry. Calls to the Chronicle's editorial page office support both assertions. Several liberals complained that the paper has become hopelessly right-wing. A host of conservatives suggested in so many words that the Chronicle is now the willing tool of the liberal elite. All I can say is that both charges cannot be true....

    Strike the Root! ^ | FR Post - Election Day 11-5-2002 | Joseph S. Bommerito
     Strike The Root There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.   It's NOT a Democracyby Joseph S. Bommarito The public education system teaches that we live in a democracy, in which the government is ruled by the majority. The founders of the country were students of government and knew that democracy was essentially mob rule with a thin veneer of legality and that the democracies of history had failed. No self-respecting person of that era would call himself a democrat. A pre-Revolutionary statement by an anonymous Bostonian reflected...

    Scientists Create Crystal Möbius Strip A signature of arts and crafts sessions, the Möbius strip--a seemingly endless ribbon with only one side and one edge that can be made from construction paper and sticky tape--has been given a new look. According to a report published today in the journal Nature, scientists have succeeded in growing crystals in the form of Möbius structures. A piece of ribbon or paper can be twisted and turned easily, so a regular Möbius strip itself is no great feat of engineering. Crystals, in contrast, contain an inherently rigid structure. To manufacture their miniature Möbius strips,...
