There is Also Anatomical Evidence

Marine Biologists Argue Dolphins Deserve Equal Rights

Dolphins are intelligent enough to warrant rights as "non-human persons," according to a team of marine biologists. This view is based on wide-ranging analysis of dolphin behavior, social interaction, and anatomy.

Before you know it, they'll be looking for pulpit placements.

reaching and discipling the world's poor and illiterate

Connecting Modern Technology to the Word of God

A Christian group is sending an army of Proclaimers to Haiti. Proclaimers are solar-powered audio bibles. According to Australian news outlet ABC News, the Faith Comes By Hearing organization has sent 600 of these Bibles already, which will spread the Holy Word speaking in Haitian Creole. They claim that they are helping Haitians by "providing faith, hope and love through God's word in audio". The first part is good, especially if you accompany that with food, water, medicines, and shelter.

It's like a fairy tale.

The Mayans Got It Wrong

Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012.

"That date has not one stitch of biblical authority," Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. "It's like a fairy tale."

The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.

Do You Have a Receipt?

The Most Dangerous Christmas Toys

Is the Zhu Zhu pet the most dangerous toy ever created?

As always, Satan's shopping list of Christmas gifts are guaranteed to make any Christian parent call their state Senator after slapping their rebellious child across the face for ruining Christmas! Here's a list to help prevent that from happening. At least the slapping part. The following Christmas toys should have been banned from purchase. Be warned: If one of these items is found in your home or on your person, then you may have to find yourself another place to worship.

Holy Banana

Jesus Image Appears On Banana Peel

Sitting down for an after lunch snack turned into a brush with all things holy when Lisa Swinton saw the face of Jesus on her banana peel.

‘‘I was like ‘Oh my God! It’s Jesus on a banana!’’

‘‘I got it out of the fruit bowl and was about to peel it and eat it when I saw his face,’’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

Drag-Racing Just Won't Be The Same

Controversial Experiment Comes To An End

Congress voted Monday to cut federal funding for the superconducting monkey collider, a controversial experiment which has cost taxpayers an estimated $7.6 billion a year since its creation in 1983.

The collider, which was to be built within a 45-mile-long circular tunnel, would accelerate monkeys to near-light speeds before smashing them together. Scientists insist the collider is an important step toward understanding the universe, because no one can yet say for certain what kind of noises monkeys would make if collided at those high speeds.

To keep the space from going to waste, Congress Monday voted to convert the empty underground tunnel into a federally funded drag-racing track. The track is expected to create hundreds of jobs in the form of pit crews and concessions workers, and will allow President Clinton to impress important foreign dignitaries with America's wheelie technology.

Despite this promising alternate plan, most involved with the monkey collider project feel the sudden cuts in funding are inexcusable. "It is a travesty of science," Reed said. "I remember the joy I felt in college when I would launch monkeys at one another with big rubber bands, and this project would have been even more enlightening."

Welcome!

Good Will Toward Men

Christmas is supposed to be about ‘good will toward men’. It’s from Luke 2, just before the angels appear and the shepherds head for the manger. Every year fair numbers of people manage a gesture that rises to the occasion. Still, in a humbug mood you can imagine the card that says ‘Tiny Tim’s still on crutches. Have a good one’ or ‘This Christmas I’ll be eating for higher sea levels’ or ‘We’ve introduced ID cards for foreign nationals. Season’s Greetings.’
