I just finished watching the Exodus Decoded, on the History Channel by James Cameron and Simcha Jacobovici. I didn’t realize it was originally aired in 2006. I thought it was a new program. But since switching to Verizon from DirecTV (I loved DirecTV and will most likely go back at some point) I’ve lost the ability to know what the original air dates are of programs. It’s one of my major complaints… but I digress. I was going to write up my thoughts on Exodus Decoded, but a professor Dr. Chris Heard did it for me. I haven’t finished reading his take … it’s long … but here’s the link. http://www.heardworld.com/higgaion/?page_id=119
The Blues musical style was the spawning ground for much of Modern music. The great commentator and Blues singer Muddy Waters wrote, “The Blues had a baby, they named the baby Rock and Roll”. Rock got it’s start in the Blues style of the 50’s. Many famous Rock artists such as Elvis, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin all started out doing Blues. The term R&B originally stood for “Rhythm and Blues”, not “Rap and Bad-lyrics” as it does today.
It took a modern astronomer using one of the world’s most powerful computers to prove that Stonehenge was/is a calendar. How it was constructed without the use of massive earth moving and lifting equipment remains a mystery. Now comes a retired construction worker with a simple and completely plausible answer. I think you will find this video fascinating. Click on the link below.
I found the following description of bin Laden amusing. It is from When Will Obama Give Up the Bin Laden Ghost Hunt?
“Finally, there’s the mystery why bin Laden didn’t pop up during the election. You would think a narcissistic mass murderer who believes he has a place in history would find it impossible to pass up an opportunity to give his opinion at such a momentous time, at least dropping off a DVD at theoffice in Islamabad.”
Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone.
