Three in Four in U.S. Still See the Bible as Word of God...but...

Twenty-eight percent of Americans believe the Bible is the actual word of God and that it should be taken literally. This is somewhat below the 38% to 40% seen in the late 1970s, and near the all-time low of 27% reached in 2001 and 2009. But about half of Americans continue to say the Bible is the inspired word of God, not to be taken literally -- meaning a combined 75% believe the Bible is in some way connected to God. About one in five Americans view the Bible in purely secular terms -- as ancient fables, legends, history, and precepts written by man -- which is up from 13% in 1976.

What is Real about Realism?

French journalist Claude Vorilhon is known for introducing "Raelism" to the world. Mr. Vorilhon claims he was contacted by UFO's on December 13, 1973 when his extraterrestrial visitors named him "Rael." During this time of supposed contact, the alien life forms told "Rael" that mankind was ready to learn the truth of the mysteries of man's origin. Vorilhon claims his alien contacts gave him a mission to prepare mankind for their return and to establish an embassy to initiate contact with mankind.

Micro-primates...a transitional form or just heelbone hype?

In the Book of Genesis, God makes it very clear that man was created special on the sixth day of the Creation Week. Rejecting the Genesis account of history, evolutionists must search desperately to find an alternative explanantion for man's origin. Discoveries, such as the recent "micro-primate" fossil fragment, demonstrate the great lengths to which evolutionists will go to connect humans and animals.

Muslims Mark Feast of Sacrifice

The Arab world marked the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha on Monday, traditionally a day of food, family and festivities. But this year, the holiday was noted for intensified anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rhetoric, continued violence and economic hardship in Palestinian areas, and the tragic death of 35 pilgrims during the hajj to Mecca.
