Autism Parents Reply To CNN: ‘Hear This Well’

Autism Parents Reply To CNN: ‘Hear This Well’

Sep 09

CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen recently addressed “anti-vaxxers” (parents with children who were harmed by vaccinations). In a condescending tone, Cohen declared “Vaccines are safe; autism is not a side effect of vaccines. Or to say it another way because some people don’t hear this well, vaccines do not cause autism.” Afflicted families responded by posting vaccination horror stories on YouTube and launching a grassroots campaign called “Hear This Well”…

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

Aug 18

“As with heaven, there are various hell realms witnessed by near-death experiencers. We can even see many manifestations of hell right here in the physical realm. There are people in prison, in the Bahamas, in mental institutions, universities, skid row, palaces, crack houses, all kinds of life situations. While hell realms can be seen outside all around the world as a manifestation of an inner hell within humans, hell realms in the spirit world are an even greater manifestation of inner hell within humans. Near-death accounts show that the hell realms in the spirit world are actually the spiritual/mental manifestations of spiritual conditions that humans create within themselves while on Earth.”

— NDE Researcher Kevin Williams

The idea of the Good Country Index is pretty simple: to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organisations, we’ve given each country a balance sheet to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between…

Great Ideas: Solar Roadways (Updated)

Great Ideas: Solar Roadways (Updated)

Jun 03

Solar Roadways is a modular paving system of solar panels that can withstand the heaviest of trucks (250,000 pounds). These Solar Road Panels can be installed on roads, parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, bike paths, playgrounds… literally any surface under the sun. They pay for themselves primarily through the generation of electricity, which can power homes and businesses connected via driveways and parking lots. A nationwide system could produce more clean renewable energy than a country uses as a whole. They have many other features as well, including: heating elements to stay snow/ice free, LEDs to make road lines and signage, and attached Cable Corridor to store and treat stormwater and provide a “home” for power and data cables. EVs will be able to charge with energy from the sun (instead of fossil fuels) from parking lots and driveways and after a roadway system is in place, mutual induction technology will allow for charging while driving…

Movie: ‘Heaven Is For Real’ (Updated)

May 09

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, “Heaven is for Real” brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near-death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event. Randall Wallace of “Brave Heart” fame is the writer/director. The movie premiers April 16th, 2014.

“All-natural” and “natural” claims are among the most commonly used claims on new food products, and annual sales of products with “natural” claims are more than $20 billion.

In other words, only “organic” guarantees that food was produced as Mother Nature intended…

New NDE Movie: ‘The Perfect Wave’

Feb 06

A new movie that tells the story of Ian McCormack’s near-death experience will premiere February 28th in South Africa. Called “The Perfect Wave”, the movie “tells the story of a rebellious young man’s journey as he searches for the meaning of life.”

“The film is in many ways a love story that interweaves four threads: a mother’s love for her son, a young man’s love for surfing, a young man falling in love for the first time, and God’s love for humankind,” says South African director Bruce Macdonald. “It has Christian appeal, but it’s primarily an adventure.”

Is It Possible To Clean The Oceans In 5 Years?

Is It Possible To Clean The Oceans In 5 Years?

Feb 02

Stiv Wilson writes: “As the policy director of the ocean conservation nonprofit 5Gyres.org, I can tell you that the problem of ocean plastic pollution is massive. In case you didn’t know, an ocean gyre is a rotating current that circulates within one of the world’s oceans — and recent research has found that these massive systems are filled with plastic waste. There are no great estimates (at least scientific) on how much plastic is in the ocean, but I can say from firsthand knowledge (after sailing to four of the world’s five gyres) that it’s so pervasive it confounds the senses. Gyre cleanup has often been floated as a solution in the past, and recently Boyan Slat’s proposed ‘Ocean Cleanup Array’ went viral in a big way. The nineteen-year-old claims that the system can clean a gyre in 5 years with ‘unprecedented efficiency’ and then recycle the trash collected. The problem is that the barriers to gyre cleanup are so massive that the vast majority of the scientific and advocacy community believe it’s a fool’s errand…”
