Or avoiding another mass extinction event
The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.
The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.
In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

And the mass hysteria

Pope Francis was recently reported a saying “a person who thinks only about building walls were ever they may be, and not a building bridges, is not a Christian.” Yet the Vatican city is surrounded by an almost impenetrable wall.
The idea of a wall or a more impenetrable fence than what exists between the USA and Mexico has received a huge outcry of protest yet no one has protested the wall between Mexico and Guatamala or the new wall turkey is building between itself and Syria.
The new US president has placed a temporary ban on refugees and travellers from a handful of countries identified as being high risk by

Criminals know no bounds
This is how it works to steal your credit card details:
You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they return the card to you.
You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.
The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card

The modern spread of Islam
The future of all European women under Islam
For most people in this world, one of the most common dreams is for peace, happiness and prosperity. This applies to atheists, pagans and peoples of all religions and beliefs. Unfortunately a large percentage of our global population believes that peace, happiness and prosperity will only occur when everyone else conforms to their beliefs.
Beliefs regarding democracy and aspects of socialism have in fact created a reasonably stable order and conditions for people to live out their dreams and fantasies, but unfortunately many of these dreams and fantasies have come at other people’s expense.
For the Christians to be happy, everyone in the world must

The famous Persian heroine, Apranik,
Under the patriarchy that evolved over the past 3000 years, women around the world have been sidelined from public office and disempowered. Yet without women, men could not survive or even thrive.
Under patriarchy, men have tried to own women and control their lives, yet they have not learned that women cannot be understood, they can only be loved and when they are loved, their joy is transformative and uniting.
Women are related to the Earth, and givers of life. Within Vedanta that inspired Persian life before Islam, men and women stood together, yet under the yoke of Islam, women remain women and carry the spirit of life from

The spread of Islam in Persia
Before Islam empowered them, the Arabs were the most disliked of all peoples. But Islam, a psychological state of believing that one is right and that one can only feel self worth when everyone conforms to one’s beliefs sent them to get revenge by conquering the world.
The Muslim conquest of Persia or the Arab conquest of Iran, led to the end of the Sasanian Empire in the year 651 and the eventual decline of the Zoroastrian religion.
The success of Muslim invaders coincided with significant political, social, economic and military weaknesses in Persia that had been a major world power. The Sasanian Empire had exhausted its human and material resources after

Tell it the way it is
Periodically in the media this week, discussions about sex education for children re-emerge. Those who consider themselves enlightened want to tell kids the facts of life as they really are while the moral opposition wants kids to remain forever in ignorance until that time comes when they fumble in the dark and are left suffering various forms of anxiety.
In terms of statistics, these prove that children who are well educated about sex are more likely to put off sex until they are older and practice safe sex, they are also much less likely to get pregnant so it seems really strange that the moralists want to raise their kids in ignorance and expose

Residents on the small Japanese island of Okinawa in the Ryukyu archipelago south of mainland Japan live longer on average than many other cultural groups and some say they are the longest lived people with lifespans of 100 – 115 years of age common and many well documented studies have been made to support this claim.
In addition to a longer life, there are fewer incidences of the diseases that plague the Western world such as heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Scientists are so impressed that they generally agree that by adopting an Okinawan style diet, it is possible to retard or
