"If you are incredulous that a 10,000 ton asteroid could be rendered to dust before impact with the ground, you are not alone."
- Harold Saive
David Talbott of The Thunderbolts Project delivers a scholarly narration on the huge meteor that entered Earth’s atmosphere over Cherlyabinsk, Russia on 2/15/2013.
As a brief aside, certain segments of the video show the early morning Russian sky had been sprayed with long, persistent contrails that experienced observers might rather call “chemtrails”.
A flash of light more brilliant than the sun initiated a near total disintegration of the mammoth intruder from outer space. Originally estimated to be 10 tons, infrasound data from numerous stations around the planet corrected the estimate up from 10 tons to a whopping 7,000 to 10,000 tons. But despite the significant mass, the meteor was disintegrated to pieces of gravel in under 30 seconds and while still airborne. The original guess that the meteor crashed through the ice of a nearby lake was found to be false when divers investigated and found no evidence.
One haunting telescopic video clip of the meteor’s explosive destruction reveals what appears to be a piloted craft intersecting the meteor’s descent at blinding speed. Navigating to the far side, the craft appears to be responsible for the explosive demise of the meteor into smaller fragments. In the age of photoshop and image manipulation we might dismiss this clip as a hoax except for one thing; the explosion sent meteor fragments in only one direction and away from the alleged craft as one would expect if the meteor had been zapped with an energy weapon.

Rescuing Palmyra: History's lesson in how to save artefacts 2015-05-21 22:49
With Islamic State militants now inside the historic town of Palmyra in Syria, the question, inevitably, is whether they will destroy the ancient ruins.
As IS continues to sweep through parts of Iraq and Syria, damage to centuries-old artefacts - because IS sees statues and shrines as idolatrous - is plentiful.
But history has shown that, when culturally important sites are under ...

Since the 1970s, Saudi Arabia has actively spread its interpretation of Islam, Wahhabism or Salafism, worldwide. It is the most literal version of Islam and affects many young Muslims, who regard society as a place to Islamize, writes social anthropologist Aje Carlbom.

Professor: If You Read To Your Kids, You're 'Unfairly Disadvantaging' Others 2015-05-21 18:22
According to a professor at the University of Warwick in England, parents who read to their kids should be thinking about how they're "unfairly disadvantaging other people's children" by doing so.

If You Read About Conspiracies You're Just Like Osama Bin Laden Apparently 2015-05-21 3:46
At its heart, the story of Osama bin Laden's time at his house in Abbottabad is surreal. The American image of bin Laden - leering at us from under his head wrap as he plots and schemes - is undermined by the mundane realities of his life. The guy was responsible for murdering thousands of Americans and orchestrating a global ...
