Just so you know, really Orthodox Jews feel the same way about evolution as fundies. One should note that the Bible really does teach evolution is you read carefully and don't insist on every story being simply meant to be literal. Paul wrote, for example, that the story of Abraham and Sarah was an allegory.

Actually, China could have done little for North Vietnam because of the limited mountain passes. After the war ended NV had a dispute with China and the Chinese effectively lost because entry on land was too difficult. I do remember the proposal of using Nationalist troops but it made little sense as the people of Vietnam - though many were Chinese in ancestry - would not want Chinese control. T

My children sang "Amazing Grace" at my mother's funeral with one singing the first verse solo. Sen. Lieberman sent a personal handwritten two page letter because he was unable to attend my mother's funeral. I was the one assigned to give the eulogy. My mother was only slightly older than Barbara Bush was at death and, like Barbara Bush, had refused further treatment.

It was immediately after Hitler became chancellor in March 1933 that my father began working on World War II, on top secret projects relating to US naval and air power. He kept some of the top secret papers which I read in 1964. The first one (from march of 1933) kept was his discussion of the upcoming war with Germany and Japan and the importance of the naval and air power. By February of 1942 h

1 These "attacks" were not be the Syrian government. 2 The US the Uk et al are NOT better at diagnosing by merely looking at staged television shots rather than actual looking at the physical evidence. Our leadership has been convinced on the basis of staged pictures, etc., rather than real evidence. We have been hornswaggled.

The Syrian government and the Russians had specifically found a series of attempts by the rebels to create the appearance of a chemical attacks for some time and especially in the past several weeks during the situation in East Gouta. The rebels were thwarted in the prior attempts despite their announcements of "incidents". I am quite certain that the present inspectors will conclude th

I had been watching and reading concerning the other attempts of the rebels to try to use chemical weapons in order to get the US to act. Our leaders gave the OK weeks ago, saying that IF Syria used chemical weapons the US would act! Why on earth would the Syrian government use such weapons when they are WINNING? The rebels had been trying to create a false action for weeks. BTW, when Trump ha

I respectfully disagree. The fault is our own country which again has an intelligence system which failed to understand that any use of chemicals in Syria was NOT by the Syrian government but by the "rebels" intentionally to get Trump to act.

1. I agree that the doctor probably had better genes than someone who was merely on the order of the mother....including height etc. 2. There was another doctor in Utah who fathered dozens.... 3. My paternal grandmother was a Mortimer by birth. Of course, she was never in Utah. 4.
