“It was the biggest bird I have ever seen. I saw some buzzards several weeks ago and there was no comparison in size. We have a boat down by the pond that is 16 feet long, and I would say the wingspan of the bird was 14 feet”, she said.

The bird was approximately 300 to 400 feet from us and it flew over the pond and lifted up high in a tree. It stayed there five to 10 minutes. I got a good look at it through my binoculars. It looked like it was about four feet tall.

“It looked like a prehistoric bird. It was really fantastic,” Mrs. Chappell said. “The head didn’t have any feathers and it had a long neck, crooked, kind of S shaped. The body was covered with feathers and was grey or charcoal colored. We couldn’t tell much about the feet, but it had long legs.

Meds Today, in 2000 B.C. Surprisingly Comparable

In the world’s first cities 4,000 years ago, people came to doctors for help with much the same problems they do today–everything from impotence, depression, tuberculosis and cancer to gluten hypersensitivity, hemorrhoids, narcolepsy and migraines.

The treatment they received in ancient Mesopotamia is also familiar in many respects, with medical specialists writing prescriptions for pills, potions and patches that patients would take to a pharmacist.

Studying medical texts inscribed in cuneiform, the first system of writing, Chicago researchers JoAnn Scurlock and Burton Andersen found the physicians of the earliest civilizations were delivering surprisingly sophisticated, knowledgeable and effective health care 2,000 years before Christ lived.

In fact, citizens received treatment superior to what Americans got in George Washington’s time, according to the researchers. The first president died in 1799 after doctors bled him in an effort to rectify the “imbalance” of his bodily “humors.”

Pyramid found – in the heart of Bosnia

Near the city of Visoko, 30 km north of Sarajevo, there is a stone pyramid of monumental size, claims the Bosnian archeologist Semir Osmanagić, who lives and works in the USA.

After several months of geological and archeological research, Mr. Osmanagić concluded that under the present hill of Visočica hides a stairs-like pyramid, about 12,000 years old. Osmanagić, who intensively researched on pyramids in Americas, Asia and Africa for the last 15 years and wrote several books on the subject, says he’s quite sure he found the first pyramid in Europe, which is quite similar to ones in the Southern America.

He believes that the project would completely change Bosnia’s significance in the world of archeology.

On the top of “Bosnian pyramid of Sun” was a temple, built by pre-Illyrians, people who lived, according to Osmanagić, 27,000 years ago.

Mr. Osmanagić thinks he will solve the “Bosnian pyramid of Sun” in the next five years, but also prove the existence of “Bosnian pyramid of Moon”, lying under the neighboring hill of Križž.

According to BBC, the leading Bosnian newspaper “Dnevni Avaz” writes:

“The pyramid is 100 metres (300 feet) high and there is evidence that it contains rooms and a monumental causeway … The plateau is built of stone blocks, which indicates the presence at the time of a highly developed civilisation,” the daily explains.

“Archaeological excavations near the surface have uncovered a part of a wall and fragments of steps,” it reveals.

“Visocica hill could not have been shaped like this by nature,” geologist Nada Nukic tells the daily. “This is already far too more than we have anticipated, but we expect a lot more from further analysis,” she concludes.

Giant “Human” Footprints in New South Wales?

These photos were taken at different locations on the east coast of NSW, Australia. At the time that they were taken my wife and I were travelling around Australia, and had been on the road for 2 1/2 years.

We had a basic camera that didn’t record dates, therefore, I can’t say for certain, but I believe that they were most probably taken on the southern-central coastline.

In the “Dinosaurs & Giants Footprints”, (above) you will notice that the two in the attachment do look similar to human footprints, footprints made by a giant.

You may wonder why a Christian site would spend any time on” Mothman”, Owlman, thunderbirds etc. If so, you may not want to waste any time looking at these.

The reason, we do however, is that unlike what is taught in “science”, we believe that as explained in Genesis, that all terrestrial animals were contemporaries both of each other and of man. Of course many animals who once lived are now extinct, but we would not be “surprised” if any animal taught by science to have become extinct millions of years ago either turned up or was found to have lived within the last several hundred years.

That being the case, we suppose that a living pterosaur or pterodactyl could be the cause of quite a number of these sightings. Sure some are just plain made up, some are exaggerations of the size of” conventional” animals etc. , some the products of too much garlic in the pizza and sleepwalking.

But, again the pterosaur is an animal who’s name is frequently invoked after one of these sightings. We don’t know in which of the above categories these two sightings belong, but if accuarate they would tend lend some possible support to our pterosaur theory.

These are not offered as proof, but simply for examination by the curious.

The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery

by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards
Regnery Publishing, Inc.; ISBN: 0895260654
Hardcover – 464 pages (March 2004)

Is Earth merely an insignificant speck in a vast and meaningless universe? On the contrary. The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery shows that this cherished assumption of materialism is dead wrong. Earth is a lot more significant than virtually anyone has realized. Contrary to the scientific orthodoxy, it is not an average planet around an ordinary star in an unremarkable part of the Milky Way.

In this original book, Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards present a staggering array of evidence that exposes the hollowness of this modern dogma.

You will discover:

How Earth is precisely positioned in the Milky Way—not only for life, but also to allow us to find answers to the greatest mysteries of the universe

Striking ways in which water doesn’t behave like most other liquids—and how each of its quirks makes it perfectly fit for the existence of creatures like us

The harmony of Earth and the Moon: how they work together to sustain Earthly life as one intricate system—and how that system produces the best solar eclipses just where there are observers to see them

How Earth’s atmosphere helps protect us from harmful radiation, yet has a tiny window open to the radiation crucial for life and scientific knowledge

How Jupiter and Saturn protect Earth from cataclysmic destruction

Why the best scientific evidence refutes the misnamed Copernican Principle—the widely held idea that there is nothing special about Earth or its place in the universe

How the laws and constants that govern the universe must be narrowly fine-tuned for the existence of any complex life

Copernicus: how the popular idea of his achievement and its significance contains more ideologically skewed myth than historical fact

Why the sheer number and size of galaxies does not mean that Earth’s capacity to sustain life is just the result of blind chance

Gonzalez and Richards demonstrate that our planet is exquisitely fit not only to support life, but also gives us the best view of the universe, as if Earth—and the universe itself—were designed both for life and for scientific discovery. Readers are taken on a scientific odyssey from a history of tectonic plates, the wonders of water, and solar eclipses, to our location in the Milky Way, the laws that govern the universe, and the beginning of cosmic time.

The Privileged Planet’s astounding findings should lead any individual to reevaluate entrenched assumptions about the universe—and even to reconsider our very purpose on what so many have dismissed as nothing more than an accident of cosmic evolution.

Evolutionary Logic

Church of Darwin, Science, Uncategorized | Posted by Chris Parker
Oct 25 2005

By William A. Dembski

“Since the neo-Darwinian synthesis of the 1930s, evolutionary biology has become a growth industry.

This growth has resulted in the demand for more flexible methods of establishing evolutionary biology’s grandiose claims than the laborious, difficult, pedantic, and “rigorous” methods favored throughout the rest of the sciences.

This demand has been met by what is now a well-developed branch of evolutionary biology known as evolutionary logic.

I can’t here develop the theory of evolutionary logic in detail, but I will introduce some necessary terminology.”

Handsome “Polydactyled” Young Man

Oct 25 2005

Here at s8int.com, we’ve always been driven by an insatiable curiosity about the world and a belief that evidence could be found that supports the Biblical story and explanations for the world we see around us .

We don’t take evidence for polydactyl as evidence for “aliens” as some do, but simply as another small affirmation that the Bible is correct when it speaks of a genetic human strain which produces fully functional “extra” digits.

This is a nice looking, fully functional non-handicapped, handsome young man who is not a “freak” and who is probably going to be somewhat tall.

2 Samuel 21:20 (King James Version)

And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.

How Science Works; Don’t Mess With the Paradigm

Church of Darwin, Science, The Flood of Noah, Uncategorized, Unexplained Artifact | Posted by Chris Parker
Oct 21 2005

Here at s8int.com, we’d been thinking about putting these three articles together for over two years, had them lined up on the hard drive– but for some reason, had just never gotten around to it. Maybe it’s because we think the point might be a little too subtle.

Anyway, as reported back on July 16, 2003, a pensioner had made worldwide headlines by finding part of a fossilized plesiosaur backbone at Loch Ness. The find had subsequently been verified as such by the Scotland Museum.

Of course, Nessiephiles went crazy. A genuine plesiosaur fossil at Loch Ness?! Proof positive, they thought! As we said, the news was published worldwide.

Not a few days later, on approximately July 29, 2003, a new headline went around the world-though admittedly with a bit less fanfare…”Nessie Fossil a Hoax, Scientists Say”.

Well, we thought; did they examine the fossil and determine it to be a fake; or maybe –was the pensioner found to have had a whole closet full of fake as yet unpainted plesiosaur backbones; or did a witness come forward to say he saw the fossil being planted; perhaps a tiny, made in Taiwan label had been found on the back of the fossil?

Well, no. It turns out that the scientists knew it was fake because it went against the paradigm. Plus, the Loch Ness monster is too fringy for mainstreamers to put up with. Plesiosaurs had died out too long ago they reasoned….millions of years ago to be exact –but the lake according to the paradigm was only 12,000 years old. Ha!

Not only that, the fossil showed signs that it had spent some time in the sea–and the Loch was freshwater–and had never been connected to the sea. There were a few more paradigm generated fossil busters, as well.

A hoax had been perpetrated on the world, but like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, they, the scientists entrusted with keeping the paradigm safe, had solved the case , no doubt whilst leaning back in their comfortable chairs, puffing on a good pipe– without even ever having had to actually examine the fossil in question. However….

On July 31, 2003, a mere two days later, largely unnoticed and completely ignored.. another scientist (Bob Rines, of the Academy of Applied Science) was announcing his “surprising” discovery about Loch Ness after two years of research, along with geographer, Frank Dougherty, which completely blew away the paradigm’s rationale and the basis for calling the fossil find a hoax. Of course by that time, everyone had moved on ….and Mr. McSorley was left to be seen by much of the world as a faker..

Don’t mess with the paradigm –if you can’t do the time. That’s how science works…

Ancient South American “Airplanes” are Aerodynamic

Sophistication of Ancestors, The Flood of Noah, Uncategorized, Unexplained Artifact | Posted by Chris Parker
Oct 20 2005

Currently at the Smithsonian, ancient South American artifacts resembling airplanes or winged insects were found in a number of places including a grave. The small artifacts are made of gold, which means that conventional dating methods won’t work on them.

Even though archeologists admit that they don’t know how old they are, it can safely be assumed from their surroundings, including other “dateable” artifacts, that they are a minimum of 1000 years old.

For a number of years, a disagreement has “raged” over the “meaning” of the artifacts. Archaeologists labeled these objects as “zoomorphic”, meaning, animal shaped objects.

In 1995, a model of one the “golden planes” was reconstructed. The result was that the object did correspond to the aerodynamic demands of modern airplanes.

Peter Belting, a German pilot and model-airplane builder, proved this result in an experiment with his colleagues Dr. Algund Eenboom and Conrad Lübbers.

They built the antique artifacts as airplane-models with radio guidance. The models were approximately 1 meter from tip to tip and were able to perform a complete programme: loops, rolls, takeoff and landings, without aerodynamic problems.
