Huffington Post | A new Gallup poll, released Dec. 17, reveals that 40 percent of Americans still believe that humans were created by God within the last 10,000 years. This number is slightly down from a previous high of 47 percent in 1993 and 1999. Another 38 percent of respondents believe that humans have evolved from more basic organisms but with God playing a role in the process. A mere 16 percent of respondents subscribed to the belief of "secular evolution": that humans have evolved with no divine guidance. However, this number has nearly doubled from nine percent of respondents in a poll from 1982.

Independant | The Vatican Bank is under new scrutiny in a case involving money-laundering allegations that led police to seize €23m (£19.25m) in September. The Vatican calls the seizure of assets a "misunderstanding" and expresses optimism it will be quickly cleared up. But fresh court documents show that prosecutors say the Vatican Bank deliberately flouted anti-laundering laws "with the aim of hiding the ownership, destination and origin of the capital". The documents also reveal investigators' suspicions that clergy may have acted as fronts for corrupt businessmen and Mafia.

FOX News | Is liberalism killing the real masculine male? It seems that way. Keep in mind here, that when I say “man,” I’m not talking about the clichéd manly man who throws back macro-brews, chases skirts and scratches himself in public.By “real” I don’t mean someone who has to be tough, brawny or even rough around the edges. 

CBS News | For the overwhelming majority of Americans, religion is a central part of life. We wake up and watch it, pay tribute to it, Lord knows we argue over it, but how much do Americans really know about religion?

signsofthelastdays.com | Today, an increasing number of people in the world believe in the theory of Darwinian evolution.  In particular, the vast majority of institutions of higher learning in most of the nations of the world only teach that all life on earth "evolved" from a single cell which somehow popped into existence.  So is this theory actually true?  Of course not.  In fact, this article is going to teach you how to disprove evolution very easily.  The truth is that no species has ever been observed changing into another one.  Neither are there any transitional fossils which show one species "evolving" into another species.  Rather, what we see in the fossil record is the very sudden appearance of fully-formed complex life.  This is much more consistent with a creationist paradigm than it is with a Darwinian paradigm, but the scientific community doesn't seem to care.  In fact, if you believe that we were created by God, you will be automatically blackballed by the academic community in both the United States and in Europe.  The truth is that if you want to be accepted in the academic world today you must have complete and total blind faith in Darwinian evolution.

ChuckBaldwinLive.com | A column co-authored by John Eidsmoe and Ben DuPré struck me. They titled their column, "What makes a 'great' president?"  The basic thrust of the column was to examine the qualities that make one a "great" President. They start by examining the Presidency of our 11th President, James K. Polk. They note that Polk is commonly regarded as being one of America's top 12 greatest Presidents. To use their words, "between eighth and 12th among our greatest presidents."
