Science, I believe, will continue to be as corrupt as it is today

To The Daily Sun,

Some time ago I believed and wrote the same, that the evolutionary paradigm would not yield until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. After considerable investigation into the intelligent design movement I no longer believe that that is the case. The scientific evidence supports the intelligent design model. There is a core group of scientists who seems determined to soldier on until the evidence wins the day. The paradigm will shift.

I'm not so sure that this will be the good news for the Christian church that one might expect. Had the paradigm shifted some time ago or even if it were to shift today, even with the eroded state of our constitutional protections today, it might be enough to resurrect real First Amendment protections of freedom of religion. That would be a good thing. But I'm afraid that it won't happen that way.

Science, I believe will continue to be as corrupt as it is today, and as it has been co-opted for political purposes today in climate change, and in the theory of evolution, so will this science be co-opted to prop up the one world false religion that will require the worship of the false Christ at the threat of death to those who refuse. It will be used to prop up a theocracy like that which conservative Christians have been falsely slandered of promoting; only it will be a false religion.

Those who support the consensus view today, who are deluded into thinking that they are avant-garde, when they are really merely supporters of the status quo; will themselves become vigorous supporters of this new paradigm as if they knew it all the time. It's what they do.

Many saints will be martyred at this time, and then the Lord will return in the clouds as he said.

Hillary Clinton is best suited to work in split-Congress environment

To The Daily Sun,

In looking to the election of 2016 and deciding who will be elected to the office of President og the United States, there are a range of issues I would like to see addressed. After the near-death experience to our economy brought to us by the Republicans in 2008, we need someone who will use the government to provide an environment for all businesses to flourish, not the cut the taxes for the wealthy and rely on trickle down — been there, done that; it didn't work; it just blew a large hole in the budget.

Keeping us out of foreign wars where the strategic interests of the United States are not at risk is paramount. Those who lied to us about WMD in the early 2000s advocate for hot wars in the Middle East. We need to resist the scare tactics they employ.

We need someone who will build on the Affordable Health Care Act, expand choices, bring down costs, and implement universal health care, and join the rest of the industrialized world making health care a human right. Someone who will address income inequality; democracy will not survive if the present trends of inequality are allowed to continue. this includes confronting Citizens United that allows a few billionaires to co-opt the electoral process.

Due to redistricting in 2010, the House of Representatives will likely have a Republican majority, even though it is likely in 2016 (as it was in 2012), more people voted for a Democrat than Republican. On these issues, Hillary Clinton is best suited to work in this environment. With her experience as an advocate for children, a senator, and Secretary of State she will make a positive difference in the lives of the people of the United States.
