Holy smoke! The church of cannabis | Global | The Guardian

As congregations dwindle, a new religion is lighting up Denver, Colorado. Aaron Millar joins the ‘elevationists’ of the International Church of Cannabis who worship the weed.

It started, naturally, with a group of friends smoking a joint. Steve Berke, a graduate of Yale University, was temporarily living in an old church in Denver, Colorado. His estate agent parents had bought the 113-year-old building with the plan to turn it into flats. He and Lee Molloy, as well as a few friends, had just moved from Miami to capitalise on Colorado’s lucrative marijuana market. But then, in the words of Lee: “We started having these stupid, fantastical conversations. What if we kept it as a church?” So Steve convinced his parents and, nine months later, on 20 April 2016 – 4/20, as it’s known in the United States, the unofficial pothead’s holiday (because it’s 4.20pm somewhere, right?) – the International Church of Cannabis opened its doors with its own chapel, theology and video game arcade.

Evolutionary Biologist Now Wants Doctors to Kill Suicidal Depressed People | Evolution News

Darwinist Jerry Coyne, who has recently advocated the medical killing of handicapped babies so they won’t “suffer,” has added another class of people to his kill list: people who are depressed.

In response to a doctor’s suggestion in an article that a patient who was not physically suffering but who was depressed should be offered euthanasia, Coyne writes:

My answer, as was that of another expert discussed in the piece, is “yes”, but I’d offer them antidepressants first…

Goodness gracious. Coyne is now advocating euthanasia for depressed people, and make no mistake about it: euthanasia for depression is gaining wider acceptance — the Netherlands is already euthanizing people for depression and other mental health issues. Of course he gives a passing nod to offering anti-depressants first. But if they don’t work or the patient doesn’t want them, Coyne recommends that the doctor kill the patient, if the patient wants to die.

Fig Wasp Fossil Said to Pre-Date Figs by 65 Million Years | Answers in Genesis

TRUTH BOMBS: Evolution is such an irrational theory!

 

ARTICLE: Every modern species of fig (and there are around 900 of them) is pollinated by its own species of fig wasp. Until recently the evolutionary story of the fig and the fig wasp was an equally marvelous match of coevolving mutualism. Now the identification of an ancient but anatomically modern fig wasp from a quarry1 in Brazil’s Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation suggests—to evolutionists, that is—that the modern fig wasp’s fine-tuned form evolved 65 million years before the fig it requires to reproduce had even appeared on the earthly landscape.
