September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Further Tests on Yeti Hair Produce Different Results Again

If you were planning a trip to the Himalayas to hunt for the unknown bear species that was recently believed to be the source of Yeti sightings, call your travel agent for a refund. It looks like those samples may have been identified and it’s not good for your reality show.

Remember the big controversial DNA study last year of hair samples thought to be from yetis, bigfoots and other crytids? That study, lead by Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes, identified all the samples but two that came from the Himalayas. Further study matched the DNA of those samples with a 40,000-year-old polar bear fossil (Palaeolithic polar bear, Ursus maritimus). From that, they concluded a previously unknown hybrid bear species inhabits the area and is probably the real Yeti.

That conclusion was soon challenged by Ceiridwen Edwards and Ross Barnett, whose analysis determined that the DNA matched a present day polar bear and the mis-identification could have been the result of a deterioration of the sample.

Confused yet? Maybe I should say “confused Yeti” because the story doesn’t end there. According to a new report in the journal Zookeys, Eliécer E. Gutiérrez, a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution, and Ronald H. Pine, from the Biodiversity Institute & Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas, analyzed the samples AGAIN and they concluded that genetic variations of brown bears makes it impossible to determine whether the original are-they-or-are-they-not yeti hairs are from a brown bear or a polar bear. Based on that, they decided that they’re probably from a Himalayan brown bear since that’s where the samples came from – a conclusion that sounds logical but, based on past history of said samples, will probably be contested and analyzed yet again.

While studying the gene sequences of the six current bear species, Gutiérrez and Pine found one sequence from an Asian black bear from Japan that was very different than that of mainland Asian black bears, enough to warrant further study.

Asian black bear, Himalayan brown bear, Palaeolithic polar bear … blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yeti. The real news is that the samples are not from a Yeti.

The search continues.
