Comment on Christian Values Spurs ControversyIn April, Education Secretary Rod Paige suggested that Americas public schools might be better off if they embraced Judeo-Christian values.
Baptist Press quoted Secretary Paige...as saying, I would prefer to have a child in a school that has a strong appreciation for the values of the Christian community, where a child is taught to have a strong faith.
He added that Christian schools and Christian universities are growing as a result of a strong value system...
Predictably, leftist organizations were quick to condemn the pro-faith statement...

Dr. Jack Cuozzo, research orthodontist and head of the orthodontic section of Mountainside Hospital, Montclair, N.J., was the first scientist to take cephalometric (orthodontic) radiographs of the fossilized remains of humans that were first uncovered in France and Western Europe. These remains are collectively known in the scientific community by the term Neanderthal and are in all probability the remains of people who lived before the great worldwide flood of Noahs day.
Cuozzo, who is a creationist, writes that in his study of fossil man in Europe... he found that these people lived longer lives than we do today.
He also believes that they lived much more recently than previously supposed and not 200 thousand to 30 thousand years ago.
Cuozzo shares that through his anatomical studies and a series of standardized radiographs similar to the ones utilized by orthodontists across the world, he was able to calculate their life span to have been between 250 and 300 years...
The Bible speaks of the early men in our history who lived hundreds of years... Cuozzo hopes that knowing the remains of such people actually exist will help people realize that we can trust the Bible.

The Center of the EarthFor centuries, men have believed that Jerusalem is located at the center of the earth. Thus says the Lord God; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her (Ezekiel 5:5). If you look at the map of the world and draw a circle around the earths landmass, youd find that Jerusalem is at the center of the circle!
Jerusalem is and always has been at the center of the worlds conflicts, intrigues and political machinations. Its not just Jerusalem, but Israel and the entire Middle East that hold such remarkable influence over the, other nations of the world. Even though efforts are underway to establish a free and representative government in Iraq, the eyes of the world are still focused on the Middle East as though it were The Center of the Earth!
