After astronomy and geology, Darwinian evolution is the scientific weapon now most used against the Bible. But he who challenges the truth of all the anti-Scriptural elements in astronomical and... More > geological science, throws back upon the evolutionist, with a demand for their proof, the two preliminary assumptions which afford the only plausible arguments ever marshalled for his anti-naturalistic postulate. The nebular hypothesis of astronomy is the parent of the absurd dogma of evolution; while the latter also seemed confirmed by geological science, in the general indication that vegetable life preceded animal life in the prehistoric ages, while lower forms of animal life preceded the advent of man. But the nebular hypothesis of astronomy is itself in sad need of rational confirmation. ~ Frank Allaben< Less

It is not possible to make it ‘undone.’ But anyone who closes his eyes to the past becomes blind to the present.

Prints in 3-5 business days
Evanston, Illinois witnessed a great influx of southern Blacks between 1920 and 1930. Like Chicago, Evanston was confronted with a problem—controlling the residential activities of an enlarged... More > black population. Both municipalities, without formal legal sanction for their efforts, endorsed racial segregation as a solution.

More > end of the grand history-altering event known as World War II (aka “The Good War”), only one narrative of the conflict has been heard. It is a story which has been scripted by the victors and POUNDED into the minds of subsequent generations. Every medium of indoctrination has been harnessed to this end. You know the lyrics: “Germany, Italy & Japan tried to enslave the planet. The “good guys” of the “world community” banded together and saved the world.” Because the moronic mantra is never questioned, the public mind quite assumes it to be an indisputable truth, on par with 2 + 2 = 4. That's difference between mythology and an ordinary lie. Can you handle the truth that "they" don't want you to know about?< Less
