One fact that always brings me back to believing the shroud to be an intentional fake is the coins on the eyes. If a supernatural burst of energy had caused the image to be “exposed” onto the shroud, then the coins should either appear as solid round images (like on an x-ray), or if the energy was able to pass through the coins, then we’d see a pattern based upon the relative thickness of the coins – sort of a composite of both the obverse and reverse sides of the coins. Instead, we see an image of the “top” side of each coin – indicating that the image was formed by some sort of “rubbing” technique.
Both scripture and historical records indicate that the burial clothes were strips which were wrapped around the deceased, with a separate cloth placed over the deceased head.
Anyone wanting to create a seemingly accurate (but still false) shroud would be sure to include all the details, wounds, etc. associated with the Scriptural accounts. I see little reason to say that the presence of these details should cause us to favor its authenticity.
Finally, God went to great pains (if you’ll allow me – obviously God, being omnipotent, required no effort) to conceal the body of Moses in order to keep his body from becoming some sort of relic. It seems unlikely that He would allow to be preserved any such item that could be used to become an idolatrous image of His Son.

He also uses “ummm” to express his level of understanding on a multitude of subjects.

It’s a diabolical deception: The three Islamic end-times figures of the Mahdi (12th Imam), the “Prophet Jesus” and the Dajjal (the Islamic “Antichrist) correspond directly to the Bible’s Antichrist, False Prophet, and Jesus Christ, respectively. Highly recommend reading Joel Richardson’s “The Islamic Antichrist”.

That’s a niggardly use of the English language. Let’s quit being offended by misconstrued imaginings and let words mean what they mean..

Full title: “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”. Where’s Al Sharpton on this?
To clarify, Darwins book Origins of Species does not touch on Humans or Human evolution at all - as such, by "Race" he is not refering to human races.
Darwns book "On the Descent of Man" written years later was his first published discussion on the evolution of humans ..
Sharpton and Jackson were both meeting to confer about which business next to shake down.
Perhaps he knows, unlike you, the actual truth about the title.

Yeah – whoever heard of radiation in space? Just imagine what manner of catastrophe would occur if a blip of radioactive material inevitably reached the Sun! (sarcasm)

I was hoping to see a drowned lion or two. Guessing that 12 of the 14 have encountered an elephant tusk before.

Mary Matalin is looking and sounding more like her husband every time she shows up somewhere. That doesn’t bode well for her.
Mohammedanism is a tyrannical political construct with an attached religious mythology that was conjured up by a violent racist pervert 1400 years ago and bears no more resemblance to an “Abrahamic” religion than Kwanzaa does to Christmas.
Mary Matalin is an honest person, as is her husband. The Crusaders' chicanery is being exposed properly by both of them. The "Royal Family" of Saudi Arabia is headed straight for boiling water. ISIS will cleanse that little mistake of the Crusaders.
Dush.. "Mary Matalin is an honest person, as is her husband."
Too obvious, try some other propaganda line, when you lead with such a blatant untruth the rest of your message is lost.

Simpler response – greater irony:
1. “The flaws in our public school system have to do with PARENTS.” To which I respond, “the benefits of Homeschooling have to do with PARENTS”.
2. “You mock the idea of socialization, but the fact is that kids need to learn how to socialize.” To which I respond, “socialization is taught the same way table manners are — by demonstrating to children how to interact responsibly with adults and children, regardless of age — not simply by sticking dozens of children in a room and expecting it to happen by accident.” (It works by Intelligent Design, not Evolution.)

I would like to go on public record that with all the ISIS Islamo-nazi crap, whenever I hear “allah- anything” being uttered in a threatening or intimidating manner, I have reason to fear the imminent threat of rape, kidnapping or murder directed towards me (our those around me). All of those happen to be valid justification for the use of deadly force.

It’s not a zero-sum equation. You can do BOTH! Please tell me I’ve been asleep for 6 years and this guy is not our President!
That was great! The surprise and delight on the South Koreans’ faces as our marines violate their personal space wonderfully expresses the sportsmanship of the moment, as does the Marine drum major’s call. (Who knew he was a Klingon?)

They meant “Fratricide”. Common mistake – just a typo.

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and his wife will curse you forever.
The long-haired, effeminate Jesus is a figment of the imagination of Middle Age and Renaissance artists. 1 Corinthians 11:14: “Does not nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?” Jesus would not have had long hair. Scripture and Judaic tradition make it pretty clear that Jesus had a beard, also, so the plate isn’t 100% correct, either. Sola Scriptura.

My bad – I am now impressed.

I’d be more impressed if the truck ramming the barrier still had an engine in it.
