Happy birthday to the world – In the 17th century, Anglican bishop James Ussher published his “Annals of the World”, and it is now available for the first time in English. This 17th century original manuscript has been translated from the original Latin Text, and is now available for the first time ever in softcover and hardcover.

Integrating approx. 15% of biblical history with secular sources, Ussher wrote this incredible literary classic, an accurate reference so highly regarded for its preciseness that the timeline from it was included in the margins of many King James Version Bibles throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.  He traveled throughout Europe, gathering information from actual historical documents, many of which are no longer available, having been destroyed since the time of his research.

  • World history traced from creation through 70 A.D.
  • Over 10,000 footnotes from the original text updated to references from works in the Loeb Classicl Library by Harvard Press
  • Over 2,500 citations from the bible and the Apocrypha
  • Ussher’s original citations that have been checked against the lastest textual scholarship

“The Annals of the World” is a necessary addition to any church library, pastor’s library, or any library, and not surprisingly, is a favorite of home schoolers.  It contains the actual history of the ancient world from the Genesis creation through the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple, and flies in the face of evolutionists’ theory which necessitates billions of years to explain how life sprang from non-life and mutated from one-celled organiisms into human beings.

ANOTHER FASCINATING WORK BY JAMES USSHER

A BODY OF DIVINITY: The Sum and Substance of Christian Religion

A snippet from the section on “Fallen Angels”:

Can the Devil work Miracles, and tell things to come?
No: But God only. Mat. 4. 3 Isa. 41.23.

What Power have they to hurt Man?
They have no more Power than is under Nature, (for above Nature they canot work); and yet they can do nothing by the Power, but what GOD appointeth; not so much as the entering into Hogs. Mat. 8. 31.

How are they effected towards Man?
Very maliciously: As their several Names given them do declare.

What are those Names?
First, Satan, because they mortally hate Men. Secondly, Devil: Because they slanderously accuse them to God and Man, Job 1. 11. & 2. 5. Rev. 12. 10. Thirdly: The Old Serpent: For their subtle Temptation. Fourthly, The Great Dragon: For their destroying of Man. Rev. 12. 9.

How many of them do attend upon every Man?
Sometimes many upon one, and one upon many.

What are the Evil Offices they perform against Man?
Some are common to the Godly with the Wicked; others are proper to the Wicked alone.

Theological areas covered include:

  • Justification.
  • The Commandments.
  • The Priestly office.
  • The Prophetical office.
  • Spiritual warfare.
  • Fasting.
  • Resisting the temptations of the flesh.
  • Baptism.
  • The Lord’s Supper.
  • … and many others, essentially comprising a complete overview of man’s proper relation to God and all things Eternal.

“A Body of Divinity” is a wonderful book to have in a convenient place around the house, and a treasured gift for any believer.

“Hey, you’re into organic food? Just like Heinrich Himmler! He was as crazy about it as you are! He had this great plan to feed the entire SS on nothing but organic food. Problem was organic food requires about four times as much land to produce as non-organic food and the Nazis just couldn’t grab enough of it. Anyway, not being a Nazi myself I prefer to stick to non-organic food. It’s cheaper, and it means there’s more land to spare to feed the people who need it. You know, Third World people and Untermenschen like that.”

It’s the now easy-to-recognize typical environmental loony leftist strawman again…

Can Ed Darrell find the link?  Maybe he needs to get out of the bathtub first.

The EPA stated,

Toxic air pollutants like mercury from coal- and oil-fired power plants have been shown to cause neurological damage, including lower IQ, in children exposed in the womb and during early development.

This statement is false. There is no such evidence from any credible scientific study.

Unbelievable! The San Francisco Chronicle neglected to mention Obama’s SAYING that his policy on ‘clean coal’ technology would make coal not something that would be financially viable to pursue because it will bankrupt whoever attempts it because of government restrictions.

Newsbusters: Hidden Audio: Obama Tells SF Chronicle he will benkrup the coal industry

For some reason that url takes a very long time to load, so I’m going to put up the youtube video and some of the transcript.

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a (sic) ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It’s just that it will bankrupt them.

NewsBusters’ Tom Blumer found that the San Francisco Chronicle story published on January 18 based upon this January 17 interview did not include any mention of Obama’s willingness to bankrupt the coal industry which you can hear on the audio. You can read the story here when you scroll down to the “In His Own Words” section. Way to cover up for The One, SF Chronicle!

Thomas Sowell has a great piece up on “Change in Politics” -regarding Obama and why the “change” rhetoric is merely repeating the failures of FDR regarding the economy, but points out that at least FDR had the sense to be strong on national security.

Obama doesn’t have FDR’s sense, although he shares the love for social programs.

Obama’s minions have been busy creating obfuscations regarding Sarah Palin, which is a good sign. LGF pointed out the connection to “Fight the Smears” and anti-Palin websites, which seems to indicate that “fightint the smears” involves inventing smears against political opponents. Their hysteria has involved a number of insults to McCain, as well.

Obama doesn’t have any women in his organization, he didn’t chose a woman as veep, but what his campaign has been fighting for was to prevent Hillary Clinton from getting into the Oval office, and now to prevent another woman from having a role in this, -Sarah Palin.–with women’s votes.

The Obamanazis have been searching for a picture of Sarah Palin in a bikini. Why they think that would be disparaging, I don’t know – she was formerly at one time Miss Alaska; a beauty queen. But as see-dubya has pointed out, they tried that same bikini schtick with Michelle Malkin, and it didn’t work.

But they don’t realize that their disgusting ploys rarely work; it just goes to show that they’re bereft of class and civility.

Take a look at this post again and notice how many insults there are in it – without a shred of evidence or fact; it’s complete spin!

Mooseburgers for Everyone to Celebrate Palin, McCain’s VP Pick!
By Tracy DC ☮DC T☮ YesWeDid – Aug 30th, 2008

McCain chooses Sarah Palin for VP spot (after meeting her once) to woo disgruntled Hillraisers, to get financial support from his heretofore unexcited conservative base who was gonna vote for him anyway, as an attempt to reignite his fading image as a maverick, and because he fantasizes what the former beauty queen looks like when the hair comes down and the glasses come off.

That part about the hair coming down and the glasses coming off has been edited out if you go there now. The depiction of conservatives’ being disgusted with McCain up until this point, though, is completely true. But it’s about the only shred of truth in this blog posting at myobama.com

Moreover, I’m sure McCain is trying to figure out if she can be paid less for being a VP than his other strung-along would-be male picks since he’s against equal pay for women. The above must be the reasons since Palin’s experience does not qualify her to potentially be a heartbeat away from being the Leader of the Free World, even more troubling, when you consider whose 72 year old little off beat heart we’re talkin’ about, here.

He’s against equal pay for women – what? Where’s the proof of this? Palin’s experience is similar to that of Obama’s in years, and if you’re going to compare the two and call Palin inexperienced, then you’ll have to admit that Obama is, too. In fact, Obama’s veep choice Joe Biden, demonstrates Obama’s insecurity on the ‘experience’ issue, but also demonstrates that Obama is about politics as usual because Biden has a breathtaking 30 year career in the Senate – having accomplished a number of things during that period which are hardly items to brag about – such as defending the agents that murdered the people at Waco and a young boy, Sam Weaver. and a young mother holding her baby at Ruby Ridge, Vicki Weaver.

All this while completely disregarding Cindy McCain who is very accomplished in her own right, this person depicts McCain as a man who would not treat Palin equally, despite the fact that McCain – not Obama – chose a young woman running mate. Obama was fighting Hillary, and now he’ll be attempting to use women’s votes against Palin. Democrats don’t REALLY believe in ‘equality’ that’s why they have different rules for different groups. And the attack on Palin’s experience reflects this individual’s disconnect from reality, since although Palin’s inexperience is comparable to Obama’s, she has 7 years of executive experience, and being the governor of a state that is flanked by two foreign countries, Canada on the one side and Russia on the other. So she has an awareness of the threat that Russia poses moreso than Biden or Obama, despite Biden’s 30 years of politics as usual. That’s not to mention Biden being a barrel of gaffes. (Recall “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” and “I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” )

They’re making points for the other side with this stuff.

To end on a positive note with regard to Palin, you can’t deny her superwoman status–three days after giving birth to her son with Down Syndrome (now 5 months), she was back in the office trying to make sure that polar bears aren’t considered an endangered species, that BIG OIL rules, that incest and rape victims do not have a right to abortion, and that creationism will be taught in school, that is, if one can’t home-school.

No worries about missing dinner for her big family of 7, she’s got that handled too. She’s a moose hunter and has enough frozen microwavable mooseburgers to feed an army stored up for a year! Can’t wait to debate her myself!

quite a bit of stereotyping going on there, heh?

Polar bears are not an endangered species. Palin is not about “big oil” but about energy alternatives. Taking our dependence off of foreign oil is something we should be actively seeking – and of course we won’t see the benefits of doing it for at least 5 years; that’s a given. We should also take proactive measures in order to activate dormant refineries.

How many incest and rape victims are impregnated by rape? She should examine her statistics. And what is wrong with creationism being taught in schools when there is no evidence of evolution in the fossil record, and evolution has never been witnessed? There is certainly more evidence for creation than there is for evolution; what that individual is doing is railing against Christianity as most ‘scientific’ socialists do. The problem is when you look at the science, science backs up the biblical version of how the earth came into being; and is extremely scientific.

I would look forward to Palin debating this moonbat, that post demonstrates how moonbattery involves no rational thought.

As a commenter said in my comments section–at Obama rallies, they’re yelling O-ba-ma! And at McCain rallies, they’re chanting U-S-A! That’s about all you need to know about the two campaigns; one is to coronate a socialist dictator, the other is for service to our country. One is for strangling the taxpayer with blinding taxation, the other is for cutting the pork and special interests and returning us to representative government.

Should that happen, I can see the ancient carreers of people such as Dick Durbin and Joe Biden going by the wayside. I’d like to see a change in the rules for representatives – in that they have limited terms, and would not be allowed to behave as though they’ve been given a lifetime appointment.

Sarah Palin is about REAL CHANGE. She’s fought for it within her own party. She represents all that is good, and is a mother of five children, a lifetime NRA member, hunts and fishes, and loves moose stew.

She is refreshing and as Uncle Jack said in this post, Palin is turning the conservative base who was formerly disgusted by McCain, –around to voting for him.

Scientists today try to insist that no true scientist can believe in creation or in the inspiration of the bible. They are wrong, for there are thousands of living scientists who believe in recent creation, who believe in Christ and have accepted him as their personal Savior, and believe in the inerrancy and full authority of the bible. Over a thousand such men have belonged to one particular organization, the Creation Research Society, and there are numerous similar organizations around the world.

Many, and probably most, of the greatest scientists of all times, the founding fathers of science, believed in a personal Creator God, the inspiration of the Bible, and special creation. They professed faith in Christ and the gospel. Whether all were truly ‘born again”, we cannot know, some were unorthodox in their specific doctrinal beliefs, but all were creationists.
