3,000 year old treasures dated to the time of King David unveiled

TRUTH BOMBS: Even more proof that the Bible is accurate! Truth Bombs Apologetics has catalogued  over 100 distinct Archeological proofs that confirm the Historical accuracy of the Bible. Look for this Bible study coming soon. But in the mean time, why not just trust the Bible?

ARTICLE: The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem offered a unique preview on Monday of an exhibition showcasing 3,000 year-old artifacts recovered from Khirbet Qeiyafa which archaeologists believe could be the biblical city of Sha’arayim, meaning ‘Two Gates’, that is mentioned in the story of the battle of David and the Philistine giant, Goliath.

Khirbet Qeiyafa, overlooking the Elah Valley southwest of Jerusalem, is an ancient fortified city that was discovered around a decade ago. But it was not until the second year of excavations in 2008 that archaeologists realized they had stumbled upon what was possibly the earliest physical evidence of a Davidic city dating back to the 11th Century BCE.

North Carolina transgender students win toilet access ruling – BBC News

TRUTH BOMBS: I thought the purpose of schools was to teach children what right and wrong is not embrace fantasy.

ARTICLE: The University of North Carolina must allow transgender students and staff to use the toilets that match their gender identity, a US judge has ruled.

A state law passed in March requires transgender people to use toilets that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates.

The ruling led to boycotts of the state by some sports teams, businesses, and entertainers.

The full case challenging the bill is expected to go to trial in November.

US District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder said three plaintiffs challenging the measure had a strong chance of proving that the state’s toilet-access measure violated federal law, and temporarily blocked the university from applying the state law.

“The individual transgender plaintiffs have clearly shown that they will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief,” he wrote, noting their assertions that single-occupant toilets were generally unavailable at the University of North Carolina.


One of the three people who challenged the law is University of North California student Joaquin Carcano.

“Today, the tightness that I have felt in my chest every day…. has eased. But the fight is not over: we won’t rest until this discriminatory law is defeated,” Mr Carcano said.

Legislators in North Carolina enacted the law after the town of Charlotte passed a bill allowing transgender people to use toilets according to gender identity.

Lawmakers in several other US states have proposed similar legislation – sometimes referred to as “bathroom bills”.

Some people have said that allowing transgender people to choose their toilet could lead to women and children being attacked.

They said they feared that predatory men could pose as transgender people and use legal protections as a cover.

Swedish cops overwhelmed by attacks from Afghanis

TRUTH BOMBS: Not from those fundamentally peaceful muslims. They wouldn’t rape and pillage like they did in the Crusades would they? YES, THAT IS WHAT THEIR RELIGION TEACHES!

ARTICLE: Children are being sexually exploited. Hordes of men are sexually assaulting women. Cars are being set on fire while hand grenades are lobbed at the police.

No, this is not a Third World country, nor is it an American inner-city neighborhood. This is Sweden, the formerly peaceful Nordic land of hardworking Lutherans.

But the country is not as peaceful as it once was. Last New Year’s Eve, gangs of young men, described as “unaccompanied from Afghanistan,” surrounded and molested women in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city. The police and media managed to keep the story under wraps for 11 days afterward.

The reality is sexual assaults have become common in Sweden. At the music festival We Are Sthlm last week, there were seven reports of sexual harassment on the first day alone.

This was despite the fact Swedish police had ramped up security measures following a rash of assaults at the prior two years’ festivals. In January, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported police had covered up a total of 36 incidents of sexual assault and two rape allegations at the 2014 and 2015 We Are Sthlm festivals.

Again, almost all the perpetrators were described as refugee youths from Afghanistan, and now right-wing groups in Sweden have accused the police and media of deliberately not reporting the assaults in order to not encourage anti-immigrant sentiments.

Rather than saying anything that might upset immigration advocates, Swedish police started an anti-groping armband campaign. Officers handed out bracelets at major youth events, such as We Are Sthlm, that read, “Police cordon #don’t grope.”

Swedish author and researcher Nima Sanandaji, president of the think tank European Centre for Entrepreneurship and Policy Reform, wrote this recently about the bracelet campaign.

“The campaign has upset many in Sweden, as well as abroad, who doubt that those willing to commit sexual assaults care about the message printed on small plastic bracelets. Lisen Andreasson Florman, who leads a voluntary group with the goal of creating safer environments at festivals, has explained that little is done to stop the assaults,” he wrote.

“She herself, while wearing [a] work outfit, was surrounded by three men who acted in a far from acceptable way. ‘And the three men had those don’t grope bracelets on them,’ Lisen has said, continuing to explain, ‘it was so surreal.’”

Despite the #don’t grope campaign, more than 100 charges of sexual harassment and rape had been made across seven music festivals this summer in Sweden, according to Swedish public radio. When a journalist asked Dan Eliasson, Sweden’s national police commissioner, how many suspected gropers police had been able to catch and bring to justice, Eliasson replied it was far too few. The journalist informed the police commissioner the correct answer was one single person.

Eliasson tried to shift the burden to the journalist, saying “If you could tell me how we could work in a smarter way to find out how one gropes.” However, the journalist interjected that this was not his job but Eliasson’s job.

Commenting on the exchange, Sanandaji, author of “Debunking Utopia: Exposing the Myth of Nordic Socialism,” wrote: “This bizarre interview captures part of the reason for why Sweden, and to a certain degree other Northern European countries, are unable to meet social tension. A focus on public relations has crowded out traditional police work. Theoretical debates have taken the place of firm action. While the strive to focus more on dialogue than violence is an admirable action by the police force, it has led to an odd situation – with the head of police acting in a way that makes Chief Wiggum from the Simpsons look like a star.”Sanandaji recently updated Americans on the devastation immigrants have brought to Malmo, Sweden, and the apathy of police toward the attacks.

“A large number of children, immigrant children, are being used in sex trade,” Sanandaji said. “The police know about this, the immigration services know about this – nobody’s doing anything. They’re not even filing these cases.

“So we have mass-scale sexual trade of children, the things you have in deep Afghanistan happening in Malmo. Nobody does anything about this, and another thing we have in Malmo is cars are being burned… Every day now for the last, I think, two weeks, they’re burning cars, and Malmo is a city where throwing hand grenades toward the police is a common news item.

“We’re talking about Sweden. It used to be a super peaceful country where nothing of this sort used to happen.”

This glacier in Antarctica ‘bleeds’ red liquid | New York Post

TRUTH BOMBS: Any Prophecy experts out there? I would love to hear your opinion on this phenomenon.

ARTICLE: It looks like a gruesome scene, interrupting the pristine whiteness of ice-covered East Antarctica.

What appears to be blood can be seen spilling over the snow in the extreme desert, begging the question — what on earth happened?

Thankfully, this is no crime scene, nor is it the site of a terrible accident.

It’s actually a strange natural wonder that could hold the secret to life on Mars and it has an appropriately gory name: Blood Falls.

Blood Falls, in the Taylor Valley of Antarctica’s remote McMurdo Dry Valleys, is a gushing stream of crimson-colored saltwater flowing from the Taylor Glacier.

The bizarre color of the saltwater is traced back about five million years, when the ocean flooded East Antarctica and created a salty inland lake. Over time, pristine saltwater from the ocean became trapped in a basin that was totally isolated from light, heat and oxygen. The saltwater became more and more concentrated in the basin, and is now said to be about three times saltier than the ocean, and too salty to freeze.

When this saline water trickles through small fissures in the ice, it reacts with oxygen in the air to create a brilliant, bloodlike hue.

The red cascade then spills onto the ice-covered surface of West Lake Bonney, earning its name, Blood Falls.

The phenomenon was first discovered in 1911 by Australian geologist Griffith Taylor, who first explored the valley that is now his namesake. At first, scientists thought the red color was due to red algae.

But Blood Falls is not just an eye-popping natural wonder. Scientists believe it could also be the gateway to some crucial revelations about life in hostile environments.

Last year, a study on the bacteria in the saltwater suggested Antarctica could be awash with subterranean microbial life. Microbiologists found that the basin of salt water covered a much bigger area than they initially thought.

“I’ve been studying Blood Falls for quite some time, and it’s always been a mystery,” lead author Jill Mikucki of the University of Tennessee told the Washington Post.

“We found, as expected, that there was something sourcing Blood Falls, and we found that these brines were more widespread than previously thought.

“They appear to connect these surface lakes that appear separated on the ground. That means there’s the potential for a much more extensive sub-surface ecosystem, which I’m pretty jazzed about.”

Scientists said the findings could provide new insights into how organisms adapt in extreme environments. And because the McMurdo Dry Valleys are similar to the surface of Mars or Jupiter’s moon Europa, it could also help researchers understand how life could exist on other planets.

If you’re keen to witness the bizarre spectacle for yourself, Blood Falls and McMurdo Dry Valley can be seen by helicopter from nearby Antarctic research stations or cruise ships visiting the Ross Sea.
