Retracing Biblical tales from Genesis to Jesus in Pictures

lAkuNlEsCrEwS walka go Spiritual Journey with Christiane Amanpour as she retraces Biblical tales from Genesis to Jesus.

The Bible tells us the Garden of Eden was near four rivers. Two of them, the Tigris and Euphrates, are in modern-day Iraq, which leads scholars to believe the Garden was likely located in the fertile crescent region of Mesopotamia. The lush garden could have looked something like this Iraqi marsh

Remember that video…? This na update!

If you have yet to watch Psy’s  “Gangnam Style” video you may be the only one.

According to Billboard, it just became the first video to garner more than 1 billion views on the Internet (cue the wailing from Justin Bieber fans).

The video recently overtook Bieber’s “Baby” video as the most watched on YouTube, breaking the teen heartthrob’s former record of 803 million views.

Billboard calculates that “Gangnam Style” is watched 76.4 times per second. They cite Next Big Sound in theorizing that, at its currrent rate, Bieber’s video won’t cross 1 billion views until 2014.

This is part four of a series (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 5) covering several ways that humanity’s time on Earth could conceivably come to an end. The study of the apocalypse, known as eschatology has been a pervasive force in religion, science, and popular culture since the development of the first cultures on Earth. Some of the theories about the end of days are more plausible than others, but all are thought-provoking nonetheless. In Part Three, I describe some of the ways our world could end due to Catastrophies Caused by Humans. Cheers to the end!

Here we are, my friends. If all goes according to the Mayas’ plan, the world will end tomorrow. In Part One of this series, I talked about why the Maya think that the world will end in less than 36 hours. In

Isn’t the Apocalypse pretty?

Two days left people. In less than 72 hours, our world will come to an end. Probably not actually (unless you’re a Jets fan and Tebow requests a trade) but I couldn’t resist a little drama! In

We’ve all seen the movies: asteroids and comets, earthquakes and volcanoes, solar flares and gamma-ray bursts…all natural ways in which our world can come to an end. And while the most…

It’s almost here, folks! In just five short days, the world will end – at least according to ancient Mayan predictions. The fact has been known for a long time, but as December 21st, 2012 draws closer, interest…
