Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of Hamas founder, denounces the terrorist organization

As Israel and Hamas continue to battle in the Gaza strip, CNN released a stunning interview with Mosab Hassan Yousef, 36, a former Hamas and son of Hamas founder Hassan Yousef.

His father, a powerful Sheik living in the West Bank, helped start the terrorist organization in 1987. But Mosab not only left Hamas, he also left the Muslim faith and became a Christian.

The conflict started a few weeks ago when the terrorist group Hamas, that now controls Gaza, unleashed an unrelenting barrage of missiles on Israel.  A key part of Hamas’ defense strategy includes hiding its forces within civilian populations hoping civilian deaths would turn public opinion against Israel.

But the media, which is traditionally anti Israel, is starting to see Hamas for what it really is — a brutally violent, terrorist organization. In the CNN interview, Mosab said: (more…)

According to a report by Campus Reform, an online quiz developed for the Psychology 1100 class at Ohio State University (OSU) states that Christians are dumber than atheists. Campus Reform is a conservative group that according to its website “exposes bias and abuse on the nation’s college campuses.”

The quiz posed this question:

Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125. Which of the following statements do you expect to be true?

  • Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.
  • Aine earns less money than Theo.
  • Theo is more liberal than Aine
  • Theo is an atheist, while Aine is a Christian.

The correct answer was the first one: “Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.” (more…)

Was Karl Marx and the rise of communism influenced by Satan?

In his book, Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001) looked at the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of communism.

Unknown to many, Karl Marx started out as a Christian. Wurmbrand notes those Christian inclinations in some of Marx’s earliest writings such as The Union of the Faithful with Christ where the father of Communism wrote:

“Through love of Christ we turn our hearts at the same time toward our brethren who are inwardly bound to us and for whom he gave himself in sacrifice.”

Those words are in stark contrast to what Marx would later write as he developed his communistic manifesto, he told the world:

“The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.”

Though we are uncertain when it happened and why it happened, at some point Karl Marx abandoned his Christian faith. (more…)

Did finding soft tissue in a dinosaur fossil result in a scientist’s firing?

UPDATED: Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) has announced it is taking on the case of Mark Armitage, a scientist and professor at California State University Northridge (CSUN), who PJI alleges was fired for his religious beliefs. Pacific Justice is a non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty and religious freedom.

According to its news release, Pacific Justice alleges that Mark was dismissed from CSUN because he published an article in February 2013 in a peer-reviewed scientific journal showing dinosaur bones contained non-fossilized organic material. The finding indirectly called into question claims by evolutionists that dinosaurs are millions of years old.

Mark was part of dig at the Hell Creek formation in Montana when he discovered what is considered the largest triceratops horn ever found at this dig. The triceratops was a massive animal that according to evolutionists existed 60 million years ago. With features like a modern rhino, it had a massive head with three horns and a large frill.

Mark was using a high-powered electron microscope to study the fossil, when he discovered soft tissue inside the horn. His findings shocked those in the scientific community. (more…)

Canadian Jerry Sokolosky stands 7′ 8″ tall. He has recently been chosen by director Tim Chey to play Goliath in a movie about King David. The $50 million movie is scheduled for release in 2015.

The director said he was delighted to find Sokolosky because he didn’t want to use a computer generated image (CGI) to portray Goliath.  CGI was used in the movie “The Incredible Hulk.” Chey says they will use CGI to portray David’s fight with the bear and the lion.

Though Goliath was 9′ tall, Chey believes Sokolosky will more than fill the role of Goliath, giving the ancient giant a realistic appearance. (more…)

Does God really want us to use Marijuana?

A Oklahoma politician is using a strange argument in her attempt to have Marijuana legalized in that state. According to KFOR.com, Senator Constance Johnson quoted the Bible when she along with attorney David Slane announced a petition drive pushing for pot legalization in the birth place of such stars as Will Rogers, Chuck Norris and Ron Howard.

Citing Genesis 1:29, Johnson said that Marijuana was among a group of herbs God created for people to use.

And God said, ‘See I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seeds, to you it shall be for food.” (Genesis 1:29 NASV)

She said:

“We’re putting forth Genesis 1:29 as the basis of this campaign. God created this wonderful, miraculous plant and we know that it has been vilified for the last 100 years, and it’s time to change that in Oklahoma.”

Is God protecting Israel by changing the direction of Hamas’ missiles? The terrorists think so!

As Hamas continues to rain thousands of rockets and missiles on Israel, people are stunned by the lack of damage that is occurring. A number of reasons are being thrown out. Israel has developed its Iron Dome that is intercepting rockets and destroying them before they land. But it is not stopping all of them.

Israel estimates it intercepts between 30% to 40% of Hamas’ missiles. Many are still getting through, but so far have inflicted minimal damage.

The Hamas strategy has been relatively simple — throw enough rockets into the air and eventually one is going to cause massive damage. That moral victory will be trumpeted around the Middle East. Targets of their barrage have included a nuclear power plant, airports and city suburbs.

According to reports, even the Hamas is starting to notice how ineffective their missiles have been and they blame Jehovah. (more…)

The Kremlin’s Crimea Headache: Poisoned Success

There are two directions for this crisis, two kinds of failure; the world could slip into a terrible war, as it did with Hitler in 1939, or Russia could suffer from a crisis of corruption.
