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;

There's a rare celestial event on Christmas that won't happen again for another 19 years

Christmas is already a special time for many Americans, but there's an added bonus to this year's celebration:
For the first time in 38 years, the last full moon of the year will fall on Dec. 25.

The last time this happened was in 1977, and we won't see another celestial event like it until 2034.

So on early Christmas morning, be sure to steal a glance at the sky to catch the rare and beautiful full moon.

The moon will be full at exactly 6:11 a.m. ET, according to NASA — about an hour before sunrise in New York City.

That's when the moon and sun are on exactly opposite sides of Earth. This creates a 180-degree angle so that the entire Earth-facing half of the moon is completely illuminated by sunlight, which is what we see as a full moon.

The reason this is such a rare event dates back to what the Greek astronomer, Meton of Athens, first discovered in the 5th Century BC:

The time it takes the moon to complete 235 revolutions around the Earth amounts to 6,940 days, which is almost exactly how long it takes Earth to complete 19 revolutions around the sun — the two are just a few hours apart.

This means that the moon's phases will recur on the same calendar date every 19 years. The pattern follows what astronomers call the Metonic cycle, after its founder. Here's a 9th-Century manuscript depicting the Metonic cycle:

Because these two cycles are a few hours apart, we just missed a full moon on Christmas day in 1996. Instead it happened on Christmas Eve at 3:30 p.m. ET.

The next full Christmas moon will happen at 3:54 a.m. ET in 2034. Don't want to wait that long? Don't forget to look up this Christmas!

If you're not a morning person or your skies are too cloudy, then you can catch a nearly-full Christmas moon online thanks to online observatory Slooh.

Slooh will use the telescope at its flagship observatory in the Canary Islands to broadcast live feeds of this year's Christmas moon starting at 7 p.m. ET. Check it out on Slooh's website or below:
