Assembling the Timeline of History – Part III

Posted on 20 October 2010

As the timeline of history was starting to be put together a half-century ago, no one imagined that we would also be able to eventually know the exact timing of the end of it all.  Part I of this discussion traced work from the Old Testament, taking us from creation in 11,013 BC to the […]

The Thrill of Victory

The American public, it seems, has an insatiable appetite for the excitement of casino gambling.  Once limited to the state of Nevada, casinos are sprouting all over the country with approximately 40 states claiming one or more casinos within their borders.  Yet, with all the casinos that have been built, most players still find themselves […]

Assembling the Timeline of History – Part II

Posted on 19 October 2010

Nothing is random or haphazard in the Bible, though it may seem that way at first reading.  In Part I, we carefully organized all of the early Biblical time data and put together a precise timeline, with creation as year zero, and the great flood coming in the 6,023rd year.  We ended the discussion with […]

Online Games

Posted on 19 October 2010

Think that online games are only for kids?  Are you falling asleep at your desk?  Forgetting stuff that once came easy, like recalling the name of the actor who played Bill Cosby’s sidekick on the ’60’s thriller series, I Spy?  Unfortunately, memory loss is a natural part of the aging process.  You can take your […]

Biblical scholars over the centuries have felt certain that in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, the 5th and 11th chapters were somehow a record of counting time for the new planet earth.  It wasn’t until the second half of the twentieth century that the mystery was finally solved.  These chapters consist of a […]

Have you ever hoped to catch your favorite musical artist or attend a live play or sporting event, only to find that you could not snag tickets to the event, even when you showed up at the box office?   Have you ever patronized scalpers, knowing that you were being ripped off, because you felt you […]

Read My Palm

Posted on 15 October 2010

Throughout my twelve years of Catholic school, I’d been taught to avoid fortunetellers like the plague, for some were thought to do the work of the devil.  But, like the length of my uniform skirts and the friends with whom I hung out, I didn’t give much credence to what the nuns had preached.  From […]

Do Angels Exist?

Posted on 14 October 2010

Born into the Roman Catholic faith, I was taught by the nuns that angels exist.  In the thick of The Cold War, when my classmates and I were drilled to drive beneath our desks in case of an air raid (as if that would help), the Catholic Church may have believed it was assuaging the […]

Too Lame for Prime Time

Posted on 13 October 2010

Miley Cyrus and/or her management team are taking a page from Lady Gaga.  Undoubtedly impressed by the notoriety that the artist formerly known as Stefani Germanotta has gained (recently ranked #7 in the Forbes “Powerful Women” list), they’ve decided that the best way to increase the artist’s public profile is to reduce the amount of […]

Free Enterprise?

Posted on 12 October 2010

Historically, America has always been known as a country with a system of free enterprise, but is this still true?  “Free enterprise” means that a private citizen is at liberty to establish, operate, and earn a profit from some type of business that produces or distributes products, or provides a service.  This capitalist system, as […]
