15.01.06 - The Potential Site of Jesus' Trial?

Every few years, it seems, an archaeological find of major biblical significance is announced, almost always to do with either Jesus or King David. This week, it's Jesus, and it's a big one. Just inside the western walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, beneath the tall Ottoman-era fortification known misleadingly as the Tower of David, archaeologists this week proclaimed the discovery of the site of Jesus' trial by Pontius Pilate, at which he was condemned to die by crucifixion. More accurately: They proclaimed the opening to visitors (read: tourists) of the site, which has now been excavated and prepared for public viewing. Without pinpointing the precise location, scholars have known for a long time that the trial must have taken place somewhere in this general vicinity -- despite the fact that tradition has put the spot of the trial on the very opposite side of the Old City, in the Antonia Fortress. This most recent announcement is being hailed as a blockbuster, in large part because

15.01.07 - Don't Pretend Paris Terror Attack has Nothing to do with Islam

It’s absolutely right to call the Paris terrorist killings an assault on basic values that the entire free world believes in. But how can so many go on to say, in the same breath, “These barbarians have nothing to do with Islam”? Those two sentiments, in various forms, dominated English-language TV broadcasts of France 24 yesterday. Both are valid, but they’re contradictory. “This was an attack on freedom,” French President Francois Hollande said. But then, perhaps to avoid spreading the blame to all of France’s Muslims, the largest such minority in Europe, he added, “We must realize our best weapon is unity. Nothing must separate us or drive us apart.” Well, something is driving us apart: We believe in freedom; the terrorists don’t. The hashtag #JeSuisCharlie (“I am Charlie”) dominated Twitter in the hours after the attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which killed 10 members of the staff and two policemen guarding them. But are we all Charlie? Ver

15.01.09 - Anonymous Declares War Over Charlie Hebdo Attack

Anonymous declared war on Islamic extremists Friday and promised to take revenge for the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. In a video posted on YouTube, the group of hackers said they would track down websites and social media networks linked to terrorists, and take them down. "We, Anonymous around the world, have decided to declare war on you the terrorists," it said. The video is described as a message for "al Qaeda, the Islamic State and other terrorists," and promises to avenge the killing of 12 people in Wednesday's attack. "We intend to take revenge in their name, we are going to survey your activities on the net, we are going to shut down your accounts on all social networks." Anonymous has hacked websites belonging to government departments, companies and other organizations. The loose collective is also known for supporting the Occupy movement.

15.01.10 - Map of Every Attack on French Muslims Since Charlie Hebdo

Since the terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the country's Muslim community, despite universally and repeatedly condemning the attack, has come under a wave of misguided "reprisal" attacks. The attacks are being mapped by a respected British anti-Islamophobia group, Tell MAMA UK (MAMA stands for measuring anti-Muslim attacks). This map details the incidents since they began, mere hours after the Charlie Hebdo attack: According to reports by AFP and others, the attacks have included: Three training grenades thrown at a mosque in Le Man; a bullet hole was also found in one of the mosque windows A bomb blast at a restaurant adjacent to and associated with a mosque in Villefranche-sur-Saone Gunshots fired at a mosque in Port-la-Nouvelle A boar's head and entrails were left outside an Islamic prayer center in Corsica with a note: "Next time it will be one of your heads." The attacks have been relatively small-scale, especially compared to the Charlie Hebdo massacr

Bishop Tony Palmer, Pope's Friend, Dies in Motorcycle Accident

Bishop Tony Palmer, Pope's Friend, Dies in Motorcycle Accident | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
Bishop Tony Palmer, who declared the death of Protestantism, who was friend of Pope Francis and liaison for the Protestants and Catholics has died in a motorcycle accident on July 20, 2014. Time will tell what effect this shocking event will have on Tony Palmer's mission and whether the charismatics and Catholics use this to further draw the world together. Perhaps his death will slow the efforts of the "convergent church", a new name for those wishing to converge or merge with the Catholic church, or perhaps others will take his death as a rally cry to push harder. In any case, it is a tragic end of a soul and an aggressive front man for the Catholic church.

Pope Francis' First Papal High Five with US Televangelists

Pope Francis' First Papal High Five with US Televangelists | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
Pope Francis meets US televangelists about unity and shares the first papal high-five. What does it take to produce the first-ever papal high-five? A meeting with American televangelists, apparently. The gesture came during a three-hour meeting of Pope Francis and Texas televangelists Kenneth Copeland and James Robison, just weeks after the pontiff met with televangelist Joel Osteen and other religious leaders. At the June 24 meeting, Robison said he was so moved by Pope Francis’ message of the gospel that he asked the translator to ask Francis for a high-five. The pope obliged, raised his arm and the two men smacked hands....

Fossils prove a Flood Are the changes we see in our planet just transitions over millions of years? Or could changes in the planet be made over short periods of time? Evidence of an ancient worldwide Flood is very widespread in the fossil record. The mere fact that most fossils are embedded in deposits laid down by water indicates catastrophic formation. Geologists recognize that "waterborne sediments are so much more widely distributed than all other agents of burial that they include the great majority of all fossils."

15.01.07 - ‘Dangerous Moment’ for Europe, as Fear and Resentment Grow

LONDON — The sophisticated, military-style strike Wednesday on a French newspaper known for satirizing Islam staggered a continent already seething with anti-immigrant sentiments in some quarters, feeding far-right nationalist parties like France’s National Front. “This is a dangerous moment for European societies,” said Peter Neumann, director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization at King’s College London. “With increasing radicalization among supporters of jihadist organizations and the white working class increasingly feeling disenfranchised and uncoupled from elites, things are coming to a head.” Anti-immigrant attitudes have been on the rise in recent years in Europe, propelled in part by a moribund economy and high unemployment, as well as increasing immigration and more porous borders. The growing resentments have lifted the fortunes of established parties like the U.K. Independence Party in Britain and the National Front, as well as lesser-k

15.01.09 - "No-Go" Zones: France Cannot Control Muslim-Populated Neighborhoods

751 "no-go" zones exist in France today. These "no-go" zones are areas in France that the French state does not control. These areas are Muslim-dominated neighborhoods. Non-Muslims dare not set foot into the areas. The "no-go" zones, officially called Zones Urbaines Sensibles (ZUS), or Sensitive Urban Zones range in size and quantity. According to reports, there is hardly a town if France that does not have at least one ZUS. ZUS formations began in late 1996, and more than 5 million people live in them; that's 8 percent of France's population. Area locations include the heavily Muslim parts of Paris, Marseilles, Strasbourg, Lille and Amiens. Seine-Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris is home to an estimated 500,000 Muslims and 36 of the 40 districts in the area are "no-go" zones. French rulings and law enforcement hold no bar in the no-go zones. They aren't even allowed in. The host-countries have lost control over the "no-go" zones.

15.01.10 - Germany's Anti-Islamic Rallies May Grow After Paris Attacks

Germany's new anti-Islamic Pegida movement plans to rally again on Monday, when analysts expect its ranks to swell by thousands following the attacks in Paris. Leaders of the so-called "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident" have asked marchers to wear black armbands and observe a minute's silence for "the victims of terrorism in Paris". About 35,000 people, organisers said, took to the streets on Saturday in Dresden against the anti-Islam group's marches. The crowd estimate is a record and nearly double the 18,000 who attended a previous counter-protest. Many observers of the rise of the far-right populist movement in the eastern city of Dresden now expect it to seek to make political capital from the massacre at the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and its bloody aftermath. Fears over the events probably "will buoy currents of the vague xenophobia that exist in this country", Everhard Holtmann of Halle-Wittenberg University told the Handelsblatt busin

15.01.12 - French Muslim Students Refuse to Stand in Memory of Terror Victims

Many Muslims students in several French classrooms refused to stand up and participate on Sunday in a ceremonial minute of silence in memory of the victims in three murder sprees by radical Islamists in Paris last week. Several Muslim students who had the decency to stand in solidarity against Islamic terror paid for their humanity by being beaten up by fellow Muslims. Students in one 6th-grade class, referring to a cartoon linking the Prophet Mohammed with Islamic terror, told their teacher, “But you do not understand the Prophet [Mohammed]; they should not have to draw it.” One student said, “I’m for those who killed [the victims],” Le Figaro reported, and a Muslim elementary school student said, “They had it coming.” Approximately 80 percent of Muslim students in one class refused to stand in silence, and several of them suggested conspiracy theories to reject the idea that Muslims carried out the murders.

15.01.14 - Russia is Losing Control Over the European Gas Market

Oil isn't Russia's only problem. The energy exporter is losing its dominance over the European gas market. Two factors used to keep Russia as the major gas powerhouse: European policies and cold winters. But both of those things have changed — and Russia is starting to explore non-Western countries. Back in 2009 the European Union passed the Third Energy Package, which said Russia could not both own and control pipelines on the EU territory. (Russia filed a lawsuit with the World Trade Organization against the EU over this in April, after the first rounds of Western sanctions.) Additionally, the EU has been putting taxpayers' money into new inter-connectors, so if Russia decides to cut off supplies, the affected countries can still get gas from somewhere else, according to The Economist. This is a major move because in the past Russia punished countries by cutting off gas. Ukraine's gas was shut off for six months in 2014, as well as at times in 2006 and in 2009, and Latvia and Lith

Evangelical Alliance Responds to Pope's Apology with its Own

Evangelical Alliance Responds to Pope's Apology with its Own | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
VATICAN CITY (Zenit.org) — The head of the World Evangelical Alliance applauded Pope Francis’ meeting Monday with Pentecostals in Caserta, Italy, and responded to the Holy Father's apology for a lack of understanding by Catholics with his own request for forgiveness for Evangelicals who have discriminated against Catholics. Secretary General of the World Evangelical Alliance, Rev. Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, said that Pope Francis’ apology for Catholics who persecuted Christians in the past was commendable, biblical and reflects the message of Jesus. Then, like Francis, the Evangelical leader asked forgiveness for Evangelicals who did the same to Catholics. When asked about the impact of the Pope's meeting with the Pentecostals, he said, “I think Pope Francis reaching out to Evangelicals bodes well for future conversations, because that will allow us to go deeper in our interactions together.”

Archaeology Confirms the Bible

Archaeology Confirms the Bible | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
Can the Bible be trusted to provide answers to our questions? Does it contain truth? Learn about the archeological evidence that proves the Bible's authenticity. The Bible contains 66 books written over a 1500-year period of time by 44 different authors. The authenticity of its stories and of the people that lived in its history has been authenticated by the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1948. Another evidence of the Bible's inspiration is found in its cohesive unity. In more than 3000 places, the Bible declares itself inspired. It does not contradict itself. The prophecies of the Bible in cases such as Babylon, Tyre, Petra, and Egypt, as well as the Messianic prophecies, prove the Bible's authenticity.

A Double Portion

A Double Portion | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
Can we receive more spirituality than we already have? Watch as Professor Veith explores 2 Kings and the story of Elijah and Elisha, and how we should all be praying for double portions in our own lives. Do we have enough knowledge and strength to arm ourselves against the war upon God’s word? What does it mean to receive a double portion? Hear Professor Walter Veith explore the Elijah story in 2 Kings 2:9, “And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.” How can we analyze what the double portion refers to? As God’s people, how can our portions be affected by our life choices? Veith discusses how this message concerns God’s end time people more than we may think. Pay heed to Veith’s message as he warns us that our path as believers is not easy, but as a distinctive people - set apart - God has c

Signs and Wonders

Signs and Wonders | Amazing Discoveries | Scoop.it
Are miraculous signs the best way to be sure that God exists? Do you believe God exists? Why? There are many reasons people believe in God. Some base their beliefs on the teaching of Scripture, or perhaps on role models and people they admire. Some say they've been convinced by the Holy Spirit of His presence in their lives. Others had an emotional experience or even saw something amazing that led them to believe God is real. The Holy Spirit is at work in the world, but we need to ensure that the spirit we choose to listen to is in fact the Spirit of God. While supernatural signs and wonders have drawn many to God—including Saul, who became Paul, the world’s most famous missionary—we must be careful not to be guided exclusively by circumstances and emotions. In fact, Hebrews 11:1 tells us that faith is the evidence of what we do not see. As humans, what we can see is never the whole picture. When Jesus was on Earth, He performed many supernatural miracles and sign
