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;

World's smallest Bible would fit on the tip of a pen
7/6/15

Jerusalem (CNN)Noah squeezed pairs of every creature on Earth into his ark. A miracle helped the Maccabees stretch one day's worth of oil to last eight days. And now scientists have etched the 1.2 million letters of the Old Testament onto a disk no larger than the tip of a pen.

They're calling it the Nano Bible and reading it would require an electron microscope.

The teeny tiny text started as an experiment in miniaturization, to see how much data can be stored in very, very small spaces.

Scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa created a layer of silicon less than 100 atoms thick, then plated it in gold. Then they used a focused ion beam to engrave the 1.2 million characters, one at a time, blasting away the gold to reveal the darker silicon beneath.

If you want to check the work, you'd have to magnify the font about 10,000 times.

The Bible is now on display as part of the Israel Museum's 50th anniversary exhibition. It sits next to the Dead Sea Scrolls, which have some of the same text but those scrolls are about 2,000 years old.

"Our objects begin a million-and-a-half years ago. They come to the present," said James Snyder, president of the museum. "They cross that timeline and they go around the globe, and in a way, they represent the entire narrative of material cultural history from a place as important to that history as Jerusalem is."

The Nano Bible is a new way to look at history, combining the ancient words that never change with modern technology that is always changing.
