The first-ever Christian Transhumanist Conference will be held on Saturday, August 25, at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. The conference will be sponsored by the Christian Transhumanist Association (CTA), based in Nashville, which pursues a better conversation between religion and technology. Aubrey de Grey is a Cambridge scientist and researcher working to end aging, and create biological immortality through science. He will keynote the first Christian Transhumanist Conference on August 25th, in Nashville, TN — exploring the religious implications of human enhancement and radical life extension. “This is an incredibly controversial subject matter, drawing recent interest from a number of religious groups, including the Vatican,” said Micah Redding, founder and executive director of the association. “Many of the people pioneering these technologies are claiming these technologies will end religion, or bring about the creation of a new ‘A.I. god’.”
Discovered in 1952 near Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea, the Copper Scroll is unlike the other Dead Sea Scrolls which are mostly religious manuscripts written on parchment. The Copper Scroll, as its name suggests, is engraved on a thin sheet of copper. And, in contrast to the others, the Copper Scroll is a list of gold and silver items and the 64 locations where they can be found. Many archaeologists believe the Copper Scroll is an inventory from the Second Temple. In addition to gold and silver, Temple vessels and priestly vestments are listed. No archaeologist has ever succeeded in deciphering the directions contained in the Copper Scroll and finding the treasure […] “I am a Noahide,” he explained to Breaking Israel News. “I want to return the Temple artifacts to the Jewish People. It’s time.” If Barfield is successful, it will bring the Third Temple much closer.
The Internet is full of information, some of it not well researched or considered, but every now and then a star appears on the horizon. To my mind the new star is Yaacov Apelbaum, who, using his considerable technical skills, has produced a masterpiece of well-documented analysis underscoring the nonsensical and partisan nature of the Mueller operation. He compares this effort by the anti-Trumpers to the plot line of the Dreyfus affair, where falsified evidence and suppressed evidence led to Captain Alfred Dreyfus’s conviction for treason. He concludes, after a long, substantive, technologically adept investigation: “At peak capacity, the dossier team must have consisted of at least 25 individuals who worked on it for over 6-12 months. Assuming a modest $200 per hour rate per person, some first/business class travel and accommodations, media, consulting, IT, and legal services, this project most have cost an upwards of 5-10 million dollars…
Russia and China are forming a closer alliance because the United States is trying to constrain them, retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis, author of the new book “Alliance of Evil: Russia, China, the United States in New Cold War,” told Newsmax TV Friday night. “We’re seeing a ratcheted up China, certain a very aggressive Russia,” Maginnis told “Newsmax Now.” His comments came a day after a new Pentagon report said Chinese bombers are likely training for strikes against U.S. and allied targets in the Pacific.
What we need are better people, he says. “I think that we’re at this point where we need to look at every avenue. And one of those avenues is not just looking to political reform — which we should be doing – but also to be looking at ourselves. We’re the ones who cause these problems. We’re the ones who make these choices. We’re the ones who create these political systems. No one wants to acknowledge the elephant in the room, and that is that human beings may be the problem, not the political system. There’s this growing mismatch between our cognitive and technological powers and our moral capacity to use them,” he insists. Genetic engineering that would create people with a propensity for a higher degree of moral and ethical conduct will be required if humanity is to go beyond its inbred barriers that limit people’s ability to think beyond the short term and work together for the common good.
Few modern historians have done more to educate the public about the ancient and classical world than Tom Holland. His 2004 book, “Rubicon: The Last Years of the Roman Republic,” won the prestigious Hessell-Tiltman prize, which is awarded to history books of “high literary merit.” Subsequent books about the rise of the Persian Empire and the rise of Islam have received similar accolades. Put simply, when it comes to the ancient world, Holland knows his stuff, and no one doubts it. That’s why it’s wise to pay attention to what he has to say about how the coming of Christianity, and in particular the writings of St. Paul, shaped our world…
A new survey found that an overwhelming percentage of Orthodox Jews support President Donald Trump. According to the poll, which was commissioned by the US-based haredi Ami Magazine, 91% of American Orthodox Jews gave Trump a “Satisfactory” or “Very Satisfactory” rating. Only 8.4% said that they were unhappy with the president’s performance.
When President Donald Trump moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem many people of faith quickly recognized the biblical significance of such a move. Trump, like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled biblical prophecy, by recognizing that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel. However, this was not the first time in the modern State of Israel’s short 70 years that it has played a role in the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Many of the miracles we are witnessing in Israel today were promised in the Bible long ago…
There is a cave in southern Mexico where the distant past, more recent past, and the present intertwine. It is referred to as the Cave of Ancestors, where locals continue to honor their distant relatives and the site with rituals even today. Mexican archaeologists have found several sets of human remains in the ancient cave, the oldest dating as far back as 7,000 years ago! The Cave of Ancestors is 75 meters (246.06 feet) long and has a spiral shape. Proceso reports that over the years 29 sets of human remains have been found. Apart from the three sets more recently found, most of the skeletal remains have been dated to the Mayan Late Classical Period (600-900 AD).
The gods of Greek mythology are real. They’re angry, and they’re coming back. Wait, you’re thinking. I thought this guy was a Christian. Exactly. The Greek tales of their deities and demigods are bastardized versions of true history. Zeus is Satan. The Titans are the “sons of god [who] came in to the daughters of man.” The heroes of the Golden Age were “the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown…”
