    I would like to wish all my readers a  very happy, blessed, and merry Christmas! I know some Christians believe only Biblical holidays should be observed – those who follow the regulative principle of worship, which only allows that which Scripture explicitly allows. I follow the normative principle of worship. I believe we can do […]

  • Doomsday Glacier

    The ominously named Doomsday Glacier in Antarctica is at serious risk of total collapse within the next 3 years. The Thwaites Glacier, otherwise known as the Doomsday Glacier, is approximately the size of Florida or Great Britain!

  • The Nuclear Holocaust

    Atoms fuse together The small particles Combining with larger  Enormous energy Released in an instant Mathematical precision A deadly calculus A blinding flash of light Brighter than the sun Suddenly a shock wave Obliterates  Everything in its path  Then raging heat A firestorm Bodies seared by the blaze People become shadows A horrible transformation  Cities […]
