Forget what you heard, dinosaurs didn’t become birds

If you’ve ever taken a class covering dinosaurs, you know one of the theories about their disappearance is that some of them evolved into birds.  But a close look at bird anatomy says differently. The respiratory system of birds is rather unique.  Mammals, amphibians, and reptiles have a two-way lung system.  When air is taken… Continue reading Forget what you heard, dinosaurs didn’t become birds

I recently watched a Christian conference on a Christian station where a dynamic speaker with a military background urged Christians to get together and unite since we are facing some strong enemies coming against us at this time in history.  He implied it was high time to set aside our differences and doctrines to rally… Continue reading Unity–but at what cost?

How God’s plans can thwart an enemy’s curse

The circumstances surrounding Moses’ birth were very grim, but in the midst of all the negative things happening, God’s hand was still clearly visible in the affairs of men.  The Hebrews, having sought shelter from famine in Canaan, came to Egypt when Jacob brought his whole family there toward the end of his life when… Continue reading How God’s plans can thwart an enemy’s curse

Well, the news outlets have done it once again.  While they had us preoccupied with the Casey Anthony case and other news, they barely, if at all, mentioned the U.S.-Mexico trucking agreement signed yesterday in Mexico City by US and Mexican officials.  The agreement ends a standoff both sides have had since NAFTA took effect in… Continue reading What the newly-signed trucking agreement with Mexico means
