Once every couple of years or so, there’s a news story indicating that Noah’s Ark may have been located. Today another such new story was announced: “Has Noah’s Ark Been Found on a Turkish Mountaintop?”.
It’s amazing news if it’s true. But I have to wonder… what impact would such a discovery have on the world as we know it? For those who accept the Bible as truth, particularly those who accept the accounts in Genesis as literal truth (rather than figurative truth), it clearly reinforces faith.
But what about an unbelieving world? Does such a discovery reduce barriers to belief? Does it give people reason to pause and examine longstanding notions about truth?
I’m curious to see.

Gotta love this parody video poking fun at Climategate, courtesy of Minnesotans For Global Warming…
BTW, the creators of this video have been threatened with legal action by Michael Mann, the Penn State professor depicted in the video. Get a sense of humor, dude!

This story is sickening on so many levels:
“Sarasota doctor’s license revoked for aborting wrong fetus”.
The basics (for those of you who don’t click through to the story)? A husband and wife had conceived twins through in vitro fertilization. Tests showed that one of the two had the markers for Down Syndrome. A Florida OB-GYN agreed to selectively terminate the pregnancy for the Down’s Syndrome child. In the process of doing so, he inadvertently injected the healthy child with a killing chemical and terminated the “wrong” child’s life.
How sick has our society become that we see the tragedy here that the “wrong” child was aborted?
How sick is it that statistics now show 80-90% of children diagnosed in utero as likely to have Down’s Syndrome are now aborted?
Life has apparently never been worth less. Though society supposedly abhors euthanasia, I wonder how long it will be before that too is acceptable. After all, if it’s okay to kill a Down’s Syndrome kid in the womb (late in the 2nd trimester), why not take the next step and allow the same after birth?
God help us. Our society is sick beyond belief.

Wow. If you need yet another example of why our nation is in trouble (or even if you don’t), watch this.
Amazingly enough, this is real footage… not an April Fool’s joke, not creative editing… Representative Hank Johnson of Georgia (a Democrat) apparently thinks islands float, and is concerned that Guam might actually “tip over and, uh, capsize” if a proposed action to move troops and their families there proceeds.
