Kirk Cameron lost his faith in atheism...
Do you think atheism is intellectual? Many do, and because they want to be seen as "intellectual" they place their faith blindly into whatever some teacher or scientist tells them.
If you claim to be an atheist, don't just parrot what you hear some other atheist say. Strive to have intellectual integrity by doing your own investigation.

what to do if you see a suicide jumper on a bridge in china.. well, you push him of course! Passer-by pushes suicide jumper in south China
BEIJING ? Chen Fuchao, a man heavily in debt, had been contemplating suicide on a bridge in southern China for hours when a passer-by came up, shook his hand ? and pushed him off the ledge.
Chen fell 26 feet (8 meters) onto a partially inflated emergency air cushion laid out by authorities and survived, suffering spine and elbow injuries, the official Xinhua News Agency said Saturday.
The passer-by, 66-year-old Lai Jiansheng, had been fed up with what he called Chen's "selfish activity," Xinhua said. Traffic around the Haizhu bridge in the city of Guangzhou had been backed up for five hours and police had cordoned off the area.
"I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish. Their action violates a lot of public interest," Lai was quoted as saying by Xinhua. "They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."
haha.. oh goodness..

haha this is funny:
Happiness Is ... Being Old, Male and Republican
Americans grow happier as they age, surveys find. And a new Pew Research Center survey shows the tendency is holding up as the economy tanks.
Happiness is a complex thing. Past studies have found that happiness is partly inherited, that Republicans are happier than Democrats, and that old men tend to be happier than old women.
If you're thinking that Republicans are happy just because they perhaps make more money, that does not seem to be the case. The study that found Republicans to be happier than Democrats also showed that it held true even after adjusting for income.

the bible's test to see if you are a christian or not:
19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
i will need to expand on this later.. perhaps in its own section in the menu at the left.. we shall see

and heres one for the *gasp* column: 50-year-old divorces child bride?
"JEDDAH (Reuters) ? A 50-year old Saudi man has agreed to divorce his 9-year-old bride, media reported on Thursday, after the marriage drew international criticism.
The decision, reported by newspapers Alwatan and Al-Riyadh, came after months of court hearings, criticism from the United Nations and an international media frenzy about Saudi Arabia's human rights practices."
i would just like to interject here and say.. gah!! "after months of court hearings, criticism from the United Nations and an international media frenzy
" thats what it takes?? international pressure?? honestly, these people are nuts!
"This is a good step and I think the man did it because he was in a lot of pressure from everyone," Wajeha Al-Huaider, founder of the Group for Women's Rights in Saudi Arabia, told Reuters by telephone.
Al-Huaider, who campaigned for the child, said she hoped the pressure generated by the case would eventually lead to a law banning child marriages.
The child's mother, who opposed the marriage which took place when the girl was 8 years old, took the case to court last year. The court in the small town of Onaiza upheld the marriage on condition that the husband did not consummate it until the girl reached puberty.
In Saudi Arabia's patriarchal society, which applies an austere version of Sunni Islam, fathers have the right to decide whom their daughters marry.
"Islam does not specify an age for the marriage contract. The contract is one thing and the consummation of marriage is another," Ahmed Al Modi, an Islamic scholar and writer, told Reuters.
In the case of the Onaiza child bride he said the judge could not order a divorce because the marriage contract was carried out according to established rules for marriage, which include the approval of the father.
shall i continue with my interjections, or is this stuff just.. speaking for itself?
"When the child is under age the father can approve the marriage contract but as soon as the child reaches puberty she can object to the marriage," Al Modi said, emphasising that it was merely a contract, signed to "secure her future."
He explained that in such cases the child usually remained in her parents' custody and her husband would be able to visit her. But he would not be permitted to live with her or consummate the marriage until she had reached puberty.
Discussion about a legal age for marriage in Saudi Arabia took off after a senior Saudi cleric, Sheikh Mohsen al-Obaikan, was quoted in a local newspaper recently saying that girls under 18 years of age should not be allowed to marry.
Many clerics in Saudi Arabia, including the Kingdom's chief cleric, Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Al al-Sheikh, endorse the practice of young girls marrying.
The Onaiza case attracted international criticism.
"Irrespective of circumstances or the legal framework, the marriage of a child is a violation of that child's rights," UNICEF's chief, Ann Veneman, said earlier this month.
Al Modi said Saudi Arabia was falling behind in the issue of child marriage.
"Egypt assigned a legal age for marriage in 1975, now we have started to awaken," he said, adding that Arab countries like Jordon Syria, Lebanon and Egypt had already assigned a legal age for marriage.
but they dont tell you what that age is..
way cool!! Dr Pepper artifact may reveal soft drink's origin
"DALLAS ? Poking through antiques stores while traveling through the Texas Panhandle, Bill Waters stumbled across a tatte
He bought it for $200, suspecting he he could resell it for five times that. Turns out, his inkling about the book's value was more spot on than he knew. The Tulsa, Okla., man eventually discovered the book came from the Waco, Texas, drugstore where Dr Pepper was invented and includes a recipe titled "D Peppers Pepsin Bitters.
"It probably has specks of the original concoction on its pages," he said.
Waters discovered the book, its yellowed pages stained brown on the edges, underneath a wooden medicine bottle crate in a Shamrock antiques store last summer. A couple months after buying it, he took a closer look as he prepared to sell it on eBay.
He noticed there were several sheets with letterheads hinting at its past, like a page from a prescription pad from a Waco store titled "W.B. Morrison & Co. Old Corner Drug Store." An Internet search revealed Dr Pepper, first served in 1885, was invented at the Old Corner Drug Store in Waco by a pharmacist named Charles Alderton. Wade Morrison was a store owner.
The recipe written in cursive in the ledger book is hard to make out, but ingredients seem to include mandrake root, sweet flag root and syrup.
It isn't a recipe for a soft drink, says Greg Artkop, a spokesman for the Plano-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group. He said it's likely instead a recipe for a bitter digestive that bears the Dr Pepper name.
He said the recipe certainly bears no resemblance to any Dr Pepper recipes the company knows of. The drink's 23-flavor blend is a closely guarded secret, only known by three Dr Pepper employees, he said.
Michael Riley, chief cataloger and historian for Heritage Auction Galleries, said they think it's an early recipe for Dr Pepper.
"We just feel like it's the earliest version of it," he said.
He hasn't, however, tested that theory by trying to mix up a batch. Neither has Waters; he's thought about it but would need to find someone to decipher all the handwriting.
Jack McKinney, executive director of the Waco museum, surmised that Alderton might have been giving customers something for their stomachs and added some Dr Pepper syrup to make it taste better.
"I don't guess there's any definitive answer. It's got to be the only one of its kind," Riley said.
Riley said the book was probably started around 1880 and used through the 1890s. It's not known who wrote the Dr Pepper recipe in the book, but they don't think it was the handwriting of Alderton or Morrison. Some of the formulas have Alderton's name after them.
At first, Alderton's drink inspired by the smells in the drugstore was called "a Waco." "People would come in and say, 'Shoot me a Waco,'" Riley said.
Soon renamed Dr Pepper, the drink caught on and other stores in town began selling it. Eventually, Alderton got out of the Dr Pepper business and Morrison and a man named Robert Lazenby started a bottling company in 1891.
Flipping through the pages of the ledger book takes one back to a time when drugstores were neighborhood hubs, selling everything from health remedies to beauty products mixed up by the stores' chemists. And among the formulas being mixed up in drugstores were treats for the soda fountain. A two-page spread in Waters' book has recipes for "Soda Water Syrups," including pineapple, lemon and strawberry.
"There were very few national brands," Riley said. "Their lifeblood was all their formulas."
so next time youre at my house, you can ask me to shoot you a waco..

wow! this is amazing! (i actually said that out loud when i saw this..) from the same guy who did the below video (the guy who does the challenge:
"In all languages, names have meanings. If you take the name-meanings of the first ten patriarchs of the Bible including God and align them chronologically, you get a prophecy of the coming of Christ - something impossible for man to have concocted:
Adam - man (Mankind)
Seth - is appointed (Appointed/placed/put)
Enosh - a mortal man (of) (mortal/frail man)
Kenan - sorrow (wailing chant)
Mahalalel - the glory of god (The Praise of God)
Jared - shall come down (Coming down)
Enoch - instructing that (Initiated)
Methuselah - his death shall bring (Man of the missile/dart)
Lamech - those sinking down in despair (Grieving)
Noah - comfort/rest (Rest/to comfort)
And when you strip away the names and add words like "and" and "the" necessary to form sentances, you are left with the prophecy:
"Mankind is appointed a mortal man of sorrow. The glory of God shall come down instructing that his death shall bring those sinking down in despair, comfort/rest."
This precicely describes Jesus Christ and His purpose for coming to the world. Precicely.
The same thing can be done with the names of all of the patriarchs in the entire Bible. When you do, you get the story and prophecy of the history of the word from the creation through the ressurection of Christ to the coming rule of Christ on earth. This is impossible to have been fabricated, since the Bible was written by numerous authors over a period of over 1500 years. :) So now you know.
isnt that just amazing?? wow!

Here's photographic verification that this alteration of the pelvis is fraudulent. Look at the original angle of the pelvis to the lower vertabrae in his pelvis as it was found in the earth, after his gross alteration, and another afarensis pelvis as it was found in the Earth. Lovejoy's pelvis had the same angle as all other afarensis pelvises before he altered it. It is grossly different. He has greatly changed tha angle to be almost vertical to create the impression the animal was bipedal:
