Washington & Jefferson on the Dangers of Political Parties

George Washington shared his hopes for the new nation, but also warned of a great danger that could bring the new nation to its end in his “Farwell Address.” The underlines have been added for emphases.
The unity of government whichconstitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national union t…

The most common misconceptions about the birth of Jesus

Every year millions of people hear the Christmas story. Many of us played different roles in school plays. The typical story goes like this:
“It’s about 2000 years ago, the evening of December 25. Mary rides into Bethlehem on a donkey, urgently needing to deliver her baby. Although it’s an emergency, all the innkeepers turn them away. So they deliver baby Jesus in a stable. Then angels sing to the shepherds. Afterwards, they all join three kings with camels in worshipping the quiet, newborn.”
The problem is, this story may be almost entirely wrong. Discover what the Gospels actually say and what has been added to the story that is not in the Bible at -- http://www.christiananswers.net/christmas/mythsaboutchristmas.html

Islamic Jihad rise in Gaza challenges Hamas rule

Since Hamas took over the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2007, killing and expelling Fatah militiamen, it never faced a real challenge to its rule. Until now its main adversary today is Islamic Jihad, which until about a year ago was considered one of Hamas’s proxies that heeded its authority and regularly fell in line with Hamas policy on when and when not to attack Israel.

In recent months though, Islamic Jihad has made an impressive leap in its capabilities and military infrastructure. This is a direct result of Iran’s decision to divert funds traditionally allocated to Hamas to Islamic Jihad instead.

The Invisible Rulers Who Are Trying to Manipulate Our Minds

The father of the modern profession of the “spin doctor” was Edward Bernays. In the opening paragraph of his 1928 book, Propaganda, Bernays wrote (underlines added for emphasis):
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
In his book Crystallizing Public Opinion Bernard reveals some very interesting conclusions about the public:
(1) It is axiomatic that men who know little are often intolerant of a point of view that is contrary to their own.
(2) Personal attack supersedes logic.
(3) Intolerance is almost inevitably accompanied by natural and true inability to comprehend or make allowance for opposite points of view.
The workings of the gregarious instinct in man result frequently in conduct of the most remarkable complexity, but it is characterized by all of …

Paul's Gospel of Christ or Peter's Gospel of Jesus?

Theophilus wants to know if what he had been taught about Jesus was true? He lived at a time where there were two very different Gospels in circulation. Paul had his own Gospel, the Gospel of Christ, but the Jerusalem Apostles that Jesus had called taught the Gospel of Jesus? In order to find the answer he asked Luke to conduct a full investigation.

New Support for Alleged Noah’s Ark Discovery

In 2010, the Hong Kong organization Noah’s Ark Ministries International or NAMI announced they had discovered the legendary vessel on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey and were subsequently accused of perpetrating a hoax. Now, a professional archaeologist states there is significant merit to their discovery.

Harvard University educated archaeologist and director of the Paleontological Research Corporation, Dr. Joel Klenck, surveyed the site, analyzed the archaeological remains and completed a comparative study. “The site is remarkable”, states Klenck.
Located at elevations above 4,200 meters on Mount Ararat and covered by layers of ice and stones, he states: “The site is wonderfully preserved, exhibits a wide array of plant materials including structures made of cypress and one room with a floor covered by chickpea seeds.” Klenck additionally notes, “I was most impressed by the artifactual assemblage, particularly the basalt bowls, stone cores and debitage.” 
“The site is no hoax,” Klenck …
