“Video depicting the slaughter of hundreds by Isis jihadists released as a warning to its enemies that they face a horrific death”
Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s caliphate is a brutal, terrorist state that is slaughtering an unknown amount of people (including Muslims) and are persecuting Christians (Mosul being one example) among other groups. The Islamic State has carved out a huge amount of land from Iraq and Syria, and they are pushing further. Within their territory they have implemented Sharia Islamic law and are butchering an unknown number of people.
Islam gained power and territory by the sword from its very beginning. “The main focus of Muhammad’s later years was increasing the number of allies as well as the amount of territory under Muslim control… Major battles in the history of Islam arose between the Meccans and the Muslims; one of the most important to the latter was the Battle of Badr in 624 AD. Other early battles included battles in Uhud (625), Khandaq (627), Mecca (630) and Hunayn (630).” (Wiki articles here and here)

Science is defining the universe by what we can observe. Faith is defining the universe by what we can’t observe.
Science can only take us so far, everything else (deity or not) is a matter of belief. Some name it faith, others name it philosophy.
Science is not incompatible with people of faith. Nor is faith incompatible with science. Everyone believes something without scienctific method or discovery.
It is how you interpret the data that makes the difference.

“Soft sheets of fibrillar bone from a fossil of the supraorbital horn of the dinosaur Triceratops horridus”
“Soft fibrillar bone tissues were obtained from a supraorbital horn of Triceratops horridus collected at the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, USA. Soft material was present in pre and post-decalcified bone. Horn material yielded numerous small sheets of lamellar bone matrix. This matrix possessed visible microstructures consistent with lamellar bone osteocytes. Some sheets of soft tissue had multiple layers of intact tissues with osteocyte-like structures featuring filipodial-like interconnections and secondary branching. Both oblate and stellate types of osteocyte-like cells were present in sheets of soft tissues and exhibited organelle-like microstructures. SEM analysis yielded osteocyte-like cells featuring filipodial extensions of 18–20 μm in length. Filipodial extensions were delicate and showed no evidence of any permineralization or crystallization artifact and therefore were interpreted to be soft. This is the first report of sheets of soft tissues from Triceratops horn bearing layers of osteocytes, and extends the range and type of dinosaur specimens known to contain non-fossilized material in bone matrix.”
Mark Armitage published his findings in the scientific peer reviewed journal Acta Histochemica a year ago. It is a journal dedicated to the structural biochemistry of cells and tissues. This is the first time I’ve heard about this, and I find it quite interesting. The Triceratops supposedly went extinct 60 million years ago. How can any amount of soft tissue survive for that long? A rational interpretation of this data is that the Triceratops possibly existed much more recently in history. Turns out this isn’t the only dinosaur that has been found with soft tissue.
The reason this came to my attention is that Mark Armitage has lost his job at California State University. Turns out he is a scientist that believes in creation by an intelligent designer. Two weeks after he published his article, Armitage was reportedly told that his 38-month appointment was only temporary and that there was not enough money to continue his position. He has filed a lawsuit. Another example of a scientist being persecuted for having a different interpretation of the data outside of the mainstream.
Here is an article about the discovery and losing his job. Here is a 2nd article about losing his job. Here is a 3rd article.
Here is an article from Scientific American about other soft tissue found in dinosaurs.
As I’ve written before, I don’t believe the Earth is only 6000 years old. I think Adam and Eve fell into sin around 6000 years ago. We do not know how much time passed from the creation of the Universe until humanity’s fall.

Here is an interesting qoute from a recent speech by Barack Obama where he mentions the New World Order.
Remarks by the President at a DNC Event — Seattle, WA
June 22, 2014 (link)
“But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria — the devastation that Assad has wrought on his own people; to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise –although we’re trying to see if we can put together a government that actually can function; to ongoing terrorist threats; to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza — part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people.”
Why is this important? When Antichrist is released on the world (Revelation 6:1-2) he will bring about a single world government, a New World Order where he will rule the entire Earth for a short time (Revelation 13:7; 17:12). The leaders of our world are talking about it, and when the President of the United States mentions it we need to pay attention.
I don’t subscribe to all the New World Order conspiracies out there, but there will be a New World Order that comes into existence that dominates the world. Are powerful people already moving behind the scenes to make it happen? They might be. When world leaders are talking about it like they have been for quite some time now, I don’t have any doubts that there is work going on to make it happen.
Do I think Barack Obama is the Antichrist? I seriously doubt it. Could he be one of the 10 leaders that rule under the power of Antichrist? That is very possible.
Remember the Antichrist is a judgement of God against the Earth because they refused to love the truth and reject Jesus, and he is released with the breaking of the first seal in Revelation 6. The power is given to him to conquer the world.
In tribute to Monster Bear
I read a lot of different websites on the internet looking for information pertaining to signs pointing to the soon return of Jesus to the Earth. One website I found recently was Signs of the Times (sott.net). It has a lot of information on earth changes among other interesting topics, and I even posted one of their videos showing natural disasters that have been going on. With at least 53 signs in progress, I have really tried to keep an eye out to keep myself informed.
SOTT.net declares itself as a “…research project of the non-profit Quantum Future Group (QFG). The project includes collecting, arranging, and analyzing news items that seem to best reflect the movement of macrocosmic quantum energies on the planet.”
SOTT also claim to be completely unbiased in their presentation of the news and essays.

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18).
I’m not saying this is the mark of the beast, but the technology is here for it to be put in place. Along with the RFID chip and other tech, it is available. Biotech will become more and more common, and people will get desensitized. A permanent mark or implant will be easy at some point.
I support Israel in their war against hate filled terrorists like Hamas.
If Mexico, Canada, or any other foreign group of people were firing thousands of rockets and missiles over the border at our civilians and children, I’d want our military to destroy them.
